Last night I decided to try something completely new. I put my Joe Satriani songs on shuffle, and just wrote what came to mind. I don't really know where some of this stuff came from, but I like parts of it, so I decided to post it.

You never really know
Just how dark things are,
Until you turn on the lights.
Because some of the time,
The best thing you can do,
Is to just call it night.

You will never know the truth
Until you take a step back.
Look at things from the outside,
Embrace the unknown
Remember the forgotten
Be your own guide.

Let yourself be free
Find a different place
Away from your anchor
Reinvent homebase
Devise a new state of mind

Stop confining yourself,
To the standard, the norm
Break free, let loose
Create your own form
Think for yourself
Don’t rely on me
Sooner or later,
We all have to transform

Let yourself be free
Find a different place
Away from your anchor

cool cool. sounds good but let's delve a little deeper shall we. mm the start isd.. mm a bit cliche. the use of light and darkness and light hiding darkness is a tried and true method try to be more.. creative? not a big fan of the last 2 lines. sounds wonderful with the rhyme of night and lights ect. but doesn't fit the mood or the lidea you are trying to get off int he first 3 lines

once again kind of like the stanza above it. dont follow the trail instead make your own path kind of idea. tried and true

i find this a little ironic. correct me if i'm wrong. but you are kind of following the standard by saying dont follow the standard caz everyone is saying that. in today's world i dotn think being a rebel is enough. you have to re-invent what sadistic and creative really mean.

uhh.. repeat

over all. i think this is your typical song. nothing special about it. the lyrics are avg. but what make songs great is the music i guess. i rarely find a band that i think, personally, write lyrics that are really.. deep. but overall it is what songs are. a facade, simply a functional piece. sorry to be so, unmerciful. return the favor? C4C? in sig
