Hey guys, so I'm new to this site, but not new to LP.
I was just in a mood for writing something, and I came up with this....it was supposed to be lyrics to song, that could be "rapped" to and stuff....and I thought it would sound so good with Mike rapping it hahaha I'm not as good a writer as Chester or Mike, but it would be cool if they were to add their own verses along with mine...I feel that Chester's awesome screams of emotion would tie in nicely with the theme of this song....I also made references to LP's "Hands Held High" and B.O.B's "Airplanes", so hope that's alright!
Well, here's hoping! Hope whoever reads this enjoys it!
"Slowly Fading" - Siddarth D
walk alone, I look around.
People passing by, no one makes a sound.
look up, looking for some eye contact,
But it always eludes me, someone please explain that.
What could have I done, to be ignored as such,
Leaving me empty, using hope as a crutch.
I use that hope, a light in dark times,
But some things are as dark as hell is divine.
What am I saying here, I can't fully explain,
But I can tell you, that I aint wishing on airplanes,
That will have no use, it will have no effect,
On a world so dark and full of neglect.
We all are falling down, slowing fading away,
As the world goes by day after day.
So what do we do when we have reached the end?
We just close our eyes and do our best to pretend.
is but a simple refuge,
From all the anger and the hatred that people abuse.
It gives us a world, a world we crave,
But its no use, it will only exist once we are in our graves,
And we have moved on into that wonderful place,
Where angels exist, and demons have no face.
So once again, come and walk with me,
As I walk on that path to the land of make believe,
Its a dangerous one, I know I can't avoid,
It's inevitable, keeping on marching to the void.
finally hit me, what I didn't understand before,
That this war wasn't just another brand of war,
It was internal, caused by ourselves and our actions,
have forced us to give up and just live a life of rations.
All I say now, as I keep on walking,
Is this is it, goodbye, I'm slowly fading.
