My band Aratic- from the 2009 album "Of Tempests and Tranquility."

Punk song called Contempt of Courtship. This is a song about the struggle to place blame when a relationship just doesn't work. Thanks for giving it a listen.

Lyrics:
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury;
I swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but
the truth, so help me.

Verse 1:
It's nice to see you again was all she had to say
and who am I to bring up yesterday
when she's so courteous?
I bow to her courtsey, but I suffocate in all these formal clothes,
I'd rather argue,
but obviously it never meant less than it does now.
Know how is just not enough to win.
The stars in her eyes emphasize the weapons left under my chin again.

Bridge:
But there is not coup de grace,
she's so damn beautiful,
she fits in where she don't belong and that makes loving her unsuitable.
What has she done to me? God bless the hung jury.
You know it's true. Don't you...don't you....DON'T YOU?

CHORUS:
Why has she waited for so long to regret the things...that she lost?
I waited for so long to be right for her...but I'm not.

Verse 2:
What I've been lacking ever since is item number one, state's evidence.
Pick up the phone and make the call; it'll ring until you're dead.
There's no point in fighting if there's no you and me.
How could I strike that from the record
the speculation does not affect her.
Object, but let me say this first:
out of my love for her--I will not seek damages nor penance for the time
that I've served.
My one question is why...I cross examine myself but my motion to close
and dismiss is denied.

CHORUS

Break:
Her impatience...my emotion..
revelations...left unspoken..
are the graveyard...
where devotion..and love go...to die.

CHORUS

Outro:
She waited for so long
She waited for so long
I've waited for so long to be somebody...that' I'm not.

This court will come to order
This court will come to order
This court will come to order
THIS COURT WILL COME TO ORDER NOW.

This song is MTV worthy.

I am disgusted with the trash my ears are assaulted with on a daily basis that is pawned off as music. I can honestly say this song inspires me to think of the days when music was great.
