So the first thing I must tell you dear reader is to forgive the rawness of my vocals on this. It was recorded in one single take and was emotional at hte time which can be heard in my voice. The words came into my head as I sang them. It was a very painful time in my life but I also grew beyond my own self. Sometimes you have to take a detour in life to get where you are going. Sometimes you will also find amazing treasure along the path of that detour. I hope you will enjoy this song. The music is by the band “MONO” but the vocals and loops of vocals to create the whispers etc are all of my own self and arrangement.
What’s that you say my dear?
For so long I was slumbering.
Lost in the labyrinth of my own mind.
They held me down underthe water.
Baby broke the surface, aged 10 years in 2 months.
She’s living proof, she’s the super nova.
Intoxicating aroma from skin.
She looks out from under heavy lashes.
Pull off my wings I am just the the dragon fly.
I break the surface of the water, to taste my first breath.
Taste the the air in my lungs, I’m breathing.
I’m living on my own for the very first time.
You can’t try and pin me down.
I’m not your specimen
I’m not yours to cut up
Flutter off into the shy, I’m flying.
I’m flying free
Oh watch me go, let me go.
You can not keep me captive any more.
Just let me go.
Let me fly AWAY.
You put my soul in your pipe and smoked it.
I won’t be your elixir.
I’ll burn you out from the inside.
I’ll trunt to some that you can never touch.
I took and painted over the picture that we had.
I don’t want be with you, I’m not doll for you to play with.
