I am Sam Brockmann. I wrote these lyrics, along with music for the songs. I'll be postin them to get some opinions. If I get nough response, I'll keep postin. If not, I won't waste my time.


Here's the lyrics to song I wrote with my roommates. The song is called "Why Am I?". It's a song about a friend of my one roommate, Dan, who wrote the lyrics as a poem originally. We changed em a lil bit to fit the music, which me and my other roommate, Jesse wrote. It's kinda addresses depression. I like it a lot. Tell me wat ya think. So, here are the lyrics.

“Why Am I?”
Lyrics by Dan Hess,
Music by Jesse Barth
and Sam Brockmann

Why do I do this to myself?
I get so depressed, so down, so sad.
Why do I feel like an outcast?
An outcast from this pointless race,
Cast aside to watch the world take place.
Why do let my emotions
Get the best of me?
Let them control, let them consume me.
I feel as though they will be the doom of me.

And all my soul requires
Is a love that welcomes in another day,
Another day.
All my heart desires
Is to be free and rid of these chains,
These chains of pain.

Why do I put myself through hell?
I feel so recessed, so alone, so afraid.
Why do I fit in with
All of this confusion,
To be another drone in this life of illusion?
Why do I seem to be a failure, a loser, and a freak?
Should lie forgotten six feet deep.
Or am I just the same, the same as every other kid on the street?

And all my soul requires
Is a love that welcomes in another day,
Another day.
All my heart desires
Is to be free and rid of these chains,
These chains of pain.

Why am I this way? Why am I?
Why am I this way? Why am I?
Why am I this way? Why am I?
