  1. These are some lyrics and a recording of one of my more recent songs. The recording ain't so great, I'm still working things out in the song. Here's the recording Crystal Clear

    Crystal Clear
    ------------

    if everything was crystal clear
    wouldnt life be sweet and dear
    if everything was crystal clear
    noone would have to shed a tear
    but nothing is just as it was
    a blurry window to the future near
    a constant change hanging in the air
    life is just one giant mirror

    trying to make it through this life
    trying to be happy in a sea of discontent
    trying to make it to the top
    trying to succeed in the face of all this failure

    if everything were laid out for you
    oh how it would make life so easy
    if everything was planned out for you
    oh how easy it would be to simply follow
    but all of life requires work
    a little effort, a little might
    just don't give up, fight the fight
    and in the end, you'll soon find

    starting to make it through this life
    starting to be happy in a sea of discontent
    starting to make it to the top
    starting to succeed in the face of all this failure

    you have everything you ever wanted
    and yet, that's still not enough
    you have everything you ever wanted
    and still inside you feel an empty hole
    material things are a waste of time
    once you have the best, another appears
    you'll never be on top, just really close
    and the facts settle in and soon you are

    dying now that you've made it through this life
    dying of discontent in a sea of happiness
    dying up here, sitting at the top
    dying like a failure in the face of your success

    failing to make it through this life
  2. Aren't words a marvelous thing? At a young age I learned to play with them, manipulate them, change, warp and use them. Language replaced my lego as a toy of choice. I don't simply settle for a sentence that gets the point across. I view a sentence as a piece of art. How you form it reflects a bit of your inner self. You're remembered most for your words in my opinion. No matter what you do, it'll be your words while doing it that people quote. All the great historical figures are like that. We reap the rewards of their actions, and quote them. Their words were their ideas, and by mirroring their words, we too can enact similiar changes today. Words are powerful. The words you choose to say can be the difference between keeping a friend and losing a friend. Finding that balance between using words, and not using words is key too.

    Some nice philosophizing for my first entry. I like this place so far, so there will be more blog entries to come, sharing some of my stuff and what not.
