Writings of Shane.

I've been writing a lot lately. I figure I need a place to post them.

Flood

bleed me dry
empty these vains
crimson ocean, red sea of remorse
cry,
cry again
tears flow
from a face,
a face once filled with bliss
now turned to hate
the best time of my life
was spent with you
truth can't be covered by lies
angel
where has your halo gone?
your wings are worn thin
burned to the end
you will never fly again

Fourth Season

Snow falls on the ground
the images never ending
dark blue cold cloud, sky turns grey
I have a fear of falling
we've gotten too high
this is the bitter end
but I come back
once again

This fire inside
isn't warm enough
to reignite my heart
that's been froze shut

I feel this air
ice through my skin
snowfall again
cold mountain wind
set upon my face
and I breathe in
as this fourth season
arrives again

The seasons changing
the leaves are falling
fading colors
you came into this drawing
the portrait of my life
your beauty never ended
the feeling was amazing

darkness falls
upon us all
it breaks the soul
tears down the walls
my heart was pounding
this love we had was ending

drowning in life
breathing in love
choking on fear
spitting out blood

Illumination
In this light
I can see your face
and how it shined for me

this heartbreak
your piercing stare
your soft touch
your crimson smile
brings me this hate
and this heartbreak
comes form within
and I break again

I call your name
I absorb this pain
I self destruct
burst into flames

the hate within
concealed by your touch
brings you this pleasure
that still remains

in your thoughts

In Dreams

Departure from reality
eyes cried closed
your appear in these dark dreams
I awake in a cold sweat
palms clenched shut
a vision of smut
remind me of this betrayel
I cast away
set this sail
I'm on my way out
gone for good
I have found my exit

All these things

thats some good shit you got there, hes something quick from me.


breaking up and breaking in, its just more then i could stand, pushed and pushed until i snapped, then you all just sit back and watch, wondering why i do these things, wondering why i poison myself, how else would i stop the pain from crushing me, from killing my heart, you see me now, you see me dead, you still can't see all the lies you hide inside your head, you see my life, you see it gone, why can't it all go the way it's planned, THIS IS MY LAST FUCKING STAND !

Flipkid is on a distinguished road
Shane i hope you don t mind me putting a poem in here, this is the one i told you about. It's called back in the game.

Out for so long
Sitting on the bench
Playing your games left my heart in a wrench
Kisses and hugs and memories made
Promises promised that our love wouldn't fade
So many words tied into so many lies
Endless nights of thoughts and wondering why
Wishes and hopes
Dreaming of dreams
Wanting someone to know what just I mean
I thought you were there
You said that you cared
Brought into the game
With no time to prepare
So now that I lost
What did you gain
Besides leaving my heart full of hatred and pain
Your victory complete
Because of that pain
That shows itself each time I hear Love's name
To find someone else
Is to lose you again
But what did you lose that that I can still gain
You lost my respect when you lost your own
You say it's still there but why isn't it shown
How much of that heart is left to abuse
How much of your youth is left to be used
So now that I look into my own eyes
And clearly see what others can't find
I wonder who really lost the game
And who paid the higher cost to escape the blame
But in life there are many things to be lost
And one has to weigh the rewards with the cost
To lose someone else is in no way easy
But to lose yourself is worse by far
You may have won the battle ......

But you lost the war.

That was written for a certain person

These tears stain your face
soft smooth skin
fallen from grace
primal scream
fingernails puncture the skin
bruised for weeks
drenched in sin
this future looks bleak
sharp pain from within

this beauty is fragile
scarred for life
or just a while

(3/5)


crack open the clouds
seperate the sky
let the sun come through
fire will break the night

A dark haze surrounds your eyes
your innocense,
simply a disguise
bruises revealed
I see the lies
scream,
scream loud

a new dark day
no sunlight comes
an endless season
subzero feeling
grey air above
searching for reason

I also have re-worked the "Flood" writing into a song, and we did a crappy recording of it. If you look hard enough on almostsmart, you can find it.

"Flood"

[verse1]
bleed me dry
empty these vains
crimson ocean
red sea of remorse
unload this pain

[chrous]
cry
cry again

[verse2]
tears flow
from a face
once filled with bliss
now turned to hate

[chorus]

[musical interlude(bridge)]

[verse3]
angel
where has your halo gone?
your wings are worn thin
burned to the end
you will never fly again

[chorus x2]

[outro]
the best time of my life
was spent with you
truth can't be covered by lies

A couple weeks ago [3/21/03], Bruce ("Flipkid") and I were playing some music and earlier that day I had written a song. We decided to do a quick recording of it onto my tape recorder...its just me on the guitar and Bruce at the vocals.

This is just a jam session we did...it was pretty much made up as we recorded (except the lyrics).


Download the song here

Also: The lyrics go with "Fourth Season", posted above.



...oh yeah - the "flood" song can be found here .

Thoughts on Flood

I think it's an awesome song......the lyrics are very deep and intense....


All you really need is to find a sweet and sexy asian girl so you won't have the blues anymore.
This was Shaun's input.....LoL
