This is one of my first songs, its my best so far.
i was going for a hardcore thrice feel, something like bloodclots and blackholes


verse 1:
its been 3 thousand years
and it hurts more then ever
havent breathed in days
but it wont go away
i see his wings on the horizon
and im dreading the dawn
the reality sets in
my sanity is long gone

chorus:
MY NAME, IS PROMETHEUS
CAN YOU HEAR ME, IM IN PAIN
I CANT MOVE, AND I HATE THE FEEL OF FEATHERS
CAUSE THIS EAGLE IS IN MY VEINS
HE WONT GIVE ME A DAY TO RECOVER
MY GOD MADE ME THIS WAY
I ONLY GAVE THEM WHAT THEY WANTED
SO ITS THE HUMAN RACE TO BLAME

verse 2:
what happened to my children
when they found out i was gone?
what could my wife really do,
other then just move on?
can anybody hear me?
am i too far gone to speak?
did anything good come of my decisions?
or should my god leave me mangled and weak?

chorus:
MY NAME, IS PROMETHEUS
CAN YOU HEAR ME, IM IN PAIN
I CANT MOVE, AND I HATE THE FEEL OF FEATHERS
CAUSE THIS EAGLE IS IN MY VEINS
HE WONT GIVE ME A DAY TO RECOVER
MY GOD MADE ME THIS WAY
I ONLY GAVE THEM WHAT THEY WANTED
SO ITS THE HUMAN RACE TO BLAME

bridge/breakdown:
ITS NOW BEEN 4003
I CANT TAKE ANOTHER BEAK
THOUGHT ID BE USED TO IT BY NOW
IT ISNT KILLING ME
THOUGH DEATH WOULD BE SO SWEET
BUT THATS A LUXURY
THAT I WONT FEEL

verse 3:
if i had use of my hands
that eagle would die
and id rip out my heart
and tear out my eyes
with my last dying breath
id curse the whole earth
for asking a favour
that lead to my hurt
if my god had any mercy
my pain would go away
but it seems that i am stuck here
another million days

chorus:
MY NAME, IS PROMETHEUS
CAN YOU HEAR ME, IM IN PAIN
I CANT MOVE, AND I HATE THE FEEL OF FEATHERS
CAUSE THIS EAGLE IS IN MY VEINS
HE WONT GIVE ME A DAY TO RECOVER
MY GOD MADE ME THIS WAY
I ONLY GAVE THEM WHAT THEY WANTED
SO ITS THE HUMAN RACE TO BLAME

chorus variation:
MY NAME, IS PROMETHEUS
MY HEART HAS STOPPED ITS BEAT
MY GOD MUST HAVE HEARD MY PRAYERS
AND TAKEN ALL MY LIFE FROM ME
THESE DAYS ARE BLURRING INTO ONE
MY EYES CAN NO LONGER SEE
THE LAST THING I WILL EVER SPEAK
IS OH MY GOD IM FREE


please comment, be honest

ohshoot
i didnt see that =P
thanks

its actually a greek myth...
prometheus brought fire to the humans, and zeus chained him to a rock
and every day an eagle would come to eat out his liver
and every night it would grow back

Wow i love the idea, original, not many fresh ideas, you deserve a gold star just for that!
I can hear it in my head the way I think it would sound, awsome, haha!

if i had use of my hands
that eagle would die
and id rip out my heart
and tear out my eyes
with my last dying breath
id curse the whole earth
for asking a favour
that lead to my hurt

but it seems that i am stuck here
another million days


^Favorite bit by far!^

Well done!

But a microphone at walmart for 10 bucks, download audacity for free, get the lame encoder and post it here. should take a day tops if you go get the mike
