Well...

Postby Orodrist » Mon Jan 19, 2015 3:16 am

I haven't been posting much writing here for various reasons, but my sister's taken to her guitar quite well and I decided she needed a lyricist. Here's my first attempt at a song.

Well you were like rock and roll
with some blues in your soul
and a fire in your step
burning me with every stride

You played the savior
But you burned me baby
not with the fire you stole
just your need for control

So you broke me when you couldn't bend me
tried to build a cage of lies
just half ***ed illusions
and shattered alibis.
But I am not under control

I am the sand slipping through your fingers
the glass crushed beneath your feet
broken, yeah, but nothing left to injure
A portrait left incomplete

So you broke me when you couldn't bend me
tried to build a cage of lies
just half ***ed illusions
and shattered alibis.
But I am not under control

Your eyes like opiates
Straight through my veins
there is never enough
and I never complain

I'm not giving in
just walking away
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do - Robert A Heinlein
