This is a poem I wrote that may or may not be put to music... I haven't decided yet.

Crit for crit, of course.

Naked Souls

If there?s a man alone in a room
Does he have a name?
With shadows for company in the gloom
Does he really even need one?

Language is a crude device
To capture one?s soul
Spoken words are too imprecise
To capture the spirit of a life

I think we all just wear our masks
To veil our naked souls
Hidden behind invented tasks
That weave a clever disguise
any critiques for making it better?

Well done. The words are very good. The message was absolutely awesome. The words also definitely carry some weight around. I don't have any advice to improve this, but I think you should write more stuff and post it. I really enjoyed reading this poem (or song, whatever you make it).

"It's been very important throughout my career that I've met all the guys I've copied, because at each stage they've said, 'Don't play like me, play like you."-Eric Clapton

At first it reminded me of Plato's Allegory ofcaves. But then later on not so much. It was going alright untill I got to "Masks" and "naked souls". Struck me as a bit trite.
