(Brilliant like a) Broken mirror.

Someone once said I had a brilliant and beautiful mind; two words I am not accustom to hearing describe my mind, let alone together. Weird, warped, sick, twisted, diseased...but not beautiful or brilliant, maybe Brilliant like a Broken mirror... so thatís where I got the idea for the song. If you donít come into the light youíll never learn to shine.

 

 

(Brilliant like a) Broken mirror.

 

 

Sitting alone in the dark
In a room with out the sun
In the room is a broken mirror
Reflecting back a broken mind
Splintered shards of broken glass
Splintered shards of a broken life

Broken Mirror, learn to shine
Shattered life, rebuild with time
Splintered mind, heal and fly
Let the light back into life.

Let in the light to the darkened room
Let the mirror relearn to shine
The radiance is blinding even though broken
A Shining mirror, with rainbow light
Still beautiful you are mirror
Do not hide in the night

Broken Mirror, learn to shine
Shattered life, rebuild with time
Splintered mind, heal and fly
Let the light back into life.

Let the light into my life
Let it heal, with hopes and dreams
Rebuilding is hard, but I can do it
With a little help from my friends
Love and hope, plans and dreams
Life with light, can heal in time

Broken Mirror, learn to shine
Shattered life, rebuild with time
Splintered mind, heal and fly
Let the light back into life.

Hopes and dreams can heal the mind
Stitch it up, teach it to fly
You are still beautiful
My broken mind
But like the mirror
It is time to shine

Broken Mirror, learn to shine
Shattered life, rebuild with time
Splintered mind, heal and fly
Let the light back into life.

Porcelain Goddess

Porcelain Goddess is one of my favourite pieces. The idea came to me as i use to walk to work and  there was a full moon, even in the suburbs the full moon can still hhave a mystical effect. Fog and shadows can create some wonderful images on the pavementand in the still half a sleep dream state an active imagination can take over. I use to picture a dancing lady, graceful movements, like a ballet dancer, dancing on the moon beams.

 

In the song there is a boy, with a statue on his window sill and when the moonlight touches it, it comes to life and dances. He watches in awe and salls in love with the dancer but doesn't act on it, eventully the dancer doesn't come and he is heart broken. Eventually he decides to dance in the moonlight and she comes back, she was waiting for him to join her.

 

The message in this song is act before it is too late, you never know what you will miss out on.

 

Porcelain Goddess

 

There she stands on the window sill,

Standing tall, standing still

She waits until the pale moonlight

Then she dances well into the night.

Dancing by the moons soft white glow

She dances fast, she dances slow

Dance porcelain goddess, dance.

 

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance the night away

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance until the break of day

 

She dances sweetly, dancing all night,

Dancing in the moons white light

Spinning until the break of day

Then the magic fades away

She doesnít move in the warm sunlight

Only by the dark of night

Dance porcelain goddess, Dance

 

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance the night away

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance until the break of day

 

Then one night she didn't start

The pain it broke my beating heart

She didn't dance in the pale moons light

In the darkness of the star filled night

Then a voice in my head did say

"The magic has not gone away,

In your heart the magic stays

Until the breaking light of day.Ē

 

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance the night away

Dance, dance, porcelain goddess

Dance until the break of day

 

Now this night I decided to dance,

Bring back the magic of the moonlights lance

Then through the window I did see,

My porcelain goddess coming for me

No longer little, nor porcelain

I saw the heart that beats with in

She called my name softly sweet

Calling for me to come meet

Now together we dance the night away,

Until the coming light of day.

Android Messiah

This Is a strange song I penned called Android Messiah, it came about when me and my friend were discussing names for a band, we started off with Digital Religion, then along those lines I came up with Cyber Temple and Android Messiah.. Completely pointless exercise as we ended up calling the now non existent band Metropolis.

 

But anyway, I liked the names and thought I could do something with them. So in a piece of inspired brilliance, or insanity take your pick, because it's a fine line... I wrote this.

 

Android Messiah.

 

In the Temple the Android sleeps
He dreams the sermon that the people hear
The words to pass his cyber lips
The words to pacify the peoples fear
Digital religion, that's what he preaches
Digital religion is what he teaches

The Android steps into the real world
Unsurprised at what has unfurled
The machines hate the masses
The masses hate machines
Not knowing who to blame
They continue being mean

But the android stands tall
Though his spirit truly bent
With no single one at fault
Yet no one completely innocent

We all follow a digital religion
We all live under a mechanical sun
But no ones listening to the Android Messiah
And we should be listening to the words to come

Behind the alter the android stands
Digital bible in a cybernetic hand
Preaching to the masses
Preaching to machines
No ones understanding
Not knowing what he means

The mass is now over
The masses now depart
The android starts his crying
There's breaking in his heart
'cause no one is believing
With empty hearts and heads
'cause no one is believing
In the gods thought long dead

We all follow a digital religion
We all live under a mechanical sun
But no ones listening to the Android Messiah
And we should be listening to the words to come

Welcome to my Adventure

This is going to be my adventure, hopefully culminating in the release of some sort of CD, even if I have to burn the damn thing myself. This has been a long time in the making starting from when I wrote my first song many years ago as a school project, but now, I'm finally going to get my arse into gear and do something about it.

Over the next few days and weeks I'll post the lyrics I've selected to record music to along with what inspired the song in the first place. 

I hope to see you along for the ride, so buckle up this is going to be one hell of a trip.
