    I write frequently, and so I thought it best to create my own thread instead of crowding up this forum with song after song. This thread is for my pieces and for feedback on my pieces only, so please don't think I'm asking for your lyrics here. The first installment is titled "Ode to the Opiate".

    Ode to the Opiate

    The jest of age is played
    On ourselves, By ourselves
    For ourselves to see
    We’re not all
    We could be

    The timeless lottery
    Pacifying just rewards
    Is our just mistake
    Can we be

    We are lost boys
    Lost in perfect snow
    As we count each flake
    That falls to scorn us

    Crystal-clear memories
    Confused with our daydreams
    Our hurried nightmare
    How can we be
    All we can be

    We are lost boys
    Lost in perfect snow
    And we count each flake
    That falls inside us

    Redeemed in our sleep
    Jacked up and ablaze
    We are tireless
    Living without sight
    Marching forward
    To nothing at all

    We are lost boys
    Lost in perfect snow
    Found among the laughter
    Of our idle sorrow

    Far from it.

    well, don't dismiss the possibility... a good chant can move mountains.

    I leave this uncertain world
    In star-lit harmony, where
    Desperate pleas have fallen
    From the tongues of destiny
    I can't press on, beyond
    This neglected day-dream
    And on golden horizon
    I'll break your sleep

    In your narrow light
    Under moons of time
    I heard the whisper of
    The lingering dead
    For once in my life
    I know I'm not lost
    In a land of memory

    Distorted angels claim
    Violence is the way
    Of God's true soul
    In fleeting sufferage
    And what hearts are
    Honest to themselves?
    What words can be held
    In this uncertain world?
