Minstrel - Reject


Author Comments

My third song that I made while also doing Let's Create Music videos on YouTube. This was coming out of a time where I was making big changes to who I had in my personal company, and coping with the necessary loss.

Enjoy, and be excellent to each other!


Watch the song get made here:

Intro (spoken)
Hey welcome to my head
Looking better than it's ever been
A bit cluttered, but I still get
Around because I barely let people in

Verse 0.0
I've always been this way
Live a life where nobody is okay
An inner struggle which I fight to prevail
A life-long quarrel which I will not let hail

I stand, and I observe
With a doubt that I will ever be heard
Never feeling justified in my skin
I force myself to be an optimist

Verse 1
I shine so fucking brightly
I look around, people feed their misery
Taking miles when they're given an inch
Cause they don't use the tools to scratch the itch

Before the void can pull me down
I step back, and listen to how it sounds
Try to piece together all that I know
Not everything has come to show

Here I go again, outside looking in
Watching all of them acting ignorant
I turn away

I Reject, I detest
Everything you have to say, so
You can just fucking go away
I reject, I deflect
All of your conformities
Society's normativities
I reject, I regret
Having to fall into line
What a giant fucking waste of time, you
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
I cannot fit into your box
Don't even think to try
Fuck off and go,
I like to be alone.

Oh shit, you're back again!
Don't expect me to hold on to your sins
I could suggest a better way to live
But there's no point, I know you won't listen

Verse 2
Actions speak louder than words
But patterns scream beyond the minute behaviour
Just shut up a second, can you hear
Or does the song make you want to jeer?

I won't take it anymore
I have no problem pushing you out of the door
If my noise is too much for you to take
I will rejoice at the distance I will make

Pre-Chorus (same as before)

Chorus (same as before, until...)
Try to change me, I will reject
Try to tame me, I will defect
I cannot fit into your box
I thought by now you'd know
If you don't learn
You're just a fucking worm

Verse 3
You witness, here I hold
I don't care what you think will unfold
I'm driven here to give it my all
No shame if I have to crawl

Don't have time to be fake
Cause in the end, it doesn't matter anyway
So take your fucking head out of your ass
And take a long look at the beautiful grass


I cannot fit into your box
I'll freeform on my terms
So don't ask why
And let me fucking fly

Rad tune brother. Nice work all around! different style of vocals all over, was pretty fucking entertaining. I found the synth or whatever it was kind of distracting through the faster bits, but it was perfect through the "I reject..deflect bits". Anyways, super cool tune..\m/

Pure-Metal-UTA responds:

Hey thanks man! Great to hear from you again! I'll keep those synths in mind in my future projects!
