My friends.

Now that I'm back to my lil room studio. I've had a lot of time to work on music. Too bad I was having writers block. Fortunately... I find that in these times, I often make my best work. So out from the ashes... this song was born. It started with me playing with some vocal effects and applying them to an old song I was writing. After a while I had completely transformed my work into what I feel is one of my most impressive songs to date. I'll leave the lyrics open to interpretation, but I feel I should also make a music video to this, just to give the visual I was feeling when writing it.

Anywho... since you're probably listening to it already. You'll likely want the lyrics...

-=Verse 1 =-
Live Strong
Run Free
Die Well
But you cannot escape

This is where we cried
Tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cause here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

-=Verse 2=-
Broken lives
and tainted hearts
I Can't go back
To where it starts
I Can't go home
Can't go home

This is where we cried
tombstone of a
The sky is set in
Shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Even if I was the key
I could never set you free
The sky is set in shades of gray
Cuz here you lay

Here you lay

Way to butt-rock!

Tell me, is it difficult to play the piano with wrists that limp?

Well you have some nice contrapuntal vocal harmonies to distract me from the weak main melody and depressingly conventional lyrics. Whenever you sing "lay" your charming midwestern accent transforms it into "lah-i-eh." Very cute.

You said the lyrics are open to interpretation, so I'm gonna take a stab at it. The most predominant them is "here you lay", which has meaning in both sex and death, so I'm going to assume your discussing the torrid love affair between someone and corpse. Due to the gender neutrality of the narrator, I can only infer that both the narrator and the cadaver are men. Man... way to tackle the subject of gay necrophilia. It's very brave of you.

MilkMan-Dan responds:

Hahaha... waits guys... no seriously wait... I got this one... don't worry... I have the perfect comeback for someone of his maturity level... trust me, this one will shut him up for sure.

wait for it...


"I know you are but what am I?"

HA!... take that. I bet your perplexed now!

But in all seriousness folks... this song is about fucking dead people. I can't lie... he was bang on.

To answer your question btw... it's quite easy for me to play the piano... and in fact the curvature of the wrist really gets the blood going... however your father tells me you play a mean skin flute... so I bow to your mastery.

Have a nice day.
Oh... and write another one of those touching "blues" songs... I could really feel the passion behind it.
