hey im just posting some lyrics

if you wanna read my actual journal, i recently switched to this, armstothesky.


i have a good friend who for a long time was heavy into drugs and this is one of a few songs regarding that.

ill sit back and watch you die
ill sit back and watch you die
ill sit back and watch you die
theres nothing i can do to stop you

a hundred times ive told you i cared
blow me off, throw me off, well you can suck me off because im sick of your shit.
now its time son, your at the edge. step off step off step off!
show what your made off, slice those veins.
your bleeding 200 proof these days.

in my dreams i remember a friend who was there for me, who would care for me.
who would swear by me, and stand by me.
now youve assaulted me. pointed out the faults in me. well now ill halt my company.

oh yes, just one thing i forgot to mention. one tiny little piece of information.
every slice, every jab, every stab, every inch of mutilation,
everything you do to yourself, is done tenfold to me.
i hate watching you kill yourself.

show what your made of, slice those veins.
your bleeding 200 proof these days.

heres a newer one about the fall coming and of course, a girl.

the sky is painted the darkest blue
a miss placed ocean of the deepest hue
the wind is picking up again
summers over

puddles gather lets take their cue
cold nights bring me closer to you

hiding smiles
behind woven scarves
we wont need to cry anymore
as the sky opens
and the rain comes
weve got all the water we need

such a beautiful day, so grey
the colors in your eyes
and its enough for everything
this palette is overflowing

time to pull out your winter wear
dont forget your sweater dear
wrapped up like a christmas present
i wouldnt mind unwrapping you

and last but not least, heres the lyrics to revenge of me's newest, polar

the halls are filled with sound
as if the stars fell to the ground
and in the wreckage you will find
that nothing that once was is now

just like a firecracker
their core has now combusted
and they are drifting farther
and pushing memories away

one now sits in silence
the other moves at steady rates
for standing still means thinking
about the one that sits and waits

and thinking too brings feeling
and feeling never did much good
so now he'll stick to leaving
he keeps on disbelieving

but as things go, he is gone
and she is crying, and she is gone
a moments heartache, shrunken to none
one sits and waits, one turns to run

interesting night. moneen was pretty good for the 4 or 5 songs i heard. guh. every other band was not that great. atleast not good enough to put of with the sweltering heat inside. it was so hot and humid that you could stand inside for 5 minutes not touching anyone and leave somewhere between damp and soaking. eeewww.. ohwell, atleast i made fatty tips working in the cafe.

i have been playing a lot of piano lately and im seeing my ability improve. that is exciting. i can play some bright eyes, some slowreader, some get up kids, and im writing some original stuff too. good times. i <3 my yamaha.

tomorrow night is crosstide, rocky votolato, and the casket freaking lottery at the nocturnal. i have been waiting for this show for ages. last summer i drove to seattle to see casket. i love them, aside from the impossibles they are probably my favorite band (impossibles are broken up so i dont think they count as much).

sometime in the next two months we shall see the return of reganomics. be excited for that, i am.

like my pal brent i also wish to find our friend Gabe an lj code. he is a good guy and im glad were friends now. he needs to enter the livejournal arena (also known as gossip-world) so that he can get the lowdown on everybodys shortcomings. hooray for lj.

if anyone has a spare code, could we please have it? thank you much.

im super excited for mine and brents project. i wrote some bad ass pianos parts today and i want to get lawrence to play bass. brent of course on guitar. im not sure who is going to sing, but i want someone really good. if your curious as to stylings, think the format with a piano. brent, lets get to work duder. you GOTS to hear this piano part so you can come up with something to go along. ive got basslines in my head, and we can just record the drum beat im using straight from my yamaha. hehe.

in other news, my reviews site is down until further notice. im not giving up, im just fed up with this server. they screwed up my html by putting banners on top of EVERY page. i asked them about it and they purposely do it so you cant use frames. in order use frames, i have to pay 4 dollars a month. SCREW THAT! im gonna get my own domain name and with the help of some friends, create an even more badastical site. YES!!

in other news, does anyone know when emma comes home? were supposed to be working on vacation bible school stuff for the next 4 days, and i have no idea what day she returns. eek a cat.

anyways, i have to go because i left the drum beat on and its been going for like 20 minutes and its driving me insane.

ok, tonight was such a good show. high fives to all the bands. im proud to say that i tore it up in the pit. I LEARNED HOW TO DO CARTWHEELS IN THE STREET BEFORE BELIEVING IN JUNE PLAYED!!! and then during brutal fight i applied my new skillz. yeah dude. soooooo much fun. bobby kicked me in the back and it hurt soooooooo bad but whateva, pain is momentary. after a couple songs to recouperate i got back in there. saw soo many kids i <3 at the show. people i havent seen in the longest time. so, if anyone feels like i ignored em, it was just cause there were soooo many kids there that i wanted to talk to, i had to ration myself. anyways, afterwards, i went to lawrences and me brent and zach gabe hung out for a couple hours. now i am home. now i am going to sleep cause oh man. my entire body hurts. plus i have a zit INSIDE my nose. that SUCKS! cant get it out. guess i just have to wait for it to go away on its own. gross huh?

minus the bear was so freaking good. they inspire me so much. blood brothers put on a really good show but i was pretty tired after minus the bear. the opening bands were both fairly good. all in all a very good show. i dont want to be a scenester. i just want to love my music. went to dennys with some kids, and even though i <3 these kids the conversation stayed on 2 subjects for the whole duration. 1) name dropping. i know this person and this person said this and me and this person are friends and i went on tour with them and they gave me a shout out and i have this many peoples cell phone numbers. 2) hot boys. ugh. such vapid conversations. dont get me wrong, music is my life and i am all for a conversation about it, but this seemed more like bragging. it turned me off. there was very little mention of the actual music, just the people involved. i hope that if i ever achieve musical success that nobody talks about me incessantly as if we are lovers because they one time had a conversation with me or because they knew about my band before the radio did. these things are all well and fine, but 5 friends sitting around a table should talk about things that actually matter. i dont know how any of them are feeling about their lives. i havent seem one of them in a year maybe, and i dont know what he is up to. im just complaining and it doesnt matter, but i dunno...
it just seems so hollow.

i hope this hasnt offended anyone. thats not why i wrote this.
