Here's another picture for you about the song about the dragon (the devil is dead - click here to listen)

I drew it with a really crappy mouse, and it's really sloppy, but sometimes it's fun to illustrate what songs look like.

Readin' Ursula LeGuinn's books made a bunch of stuff sink into my subconscious about how you need to accept both the "good" and "evil" parts o' yourself. It's fun to write a song about a bad-guy who's sort of a good guy, in a way. I identify with the dragon character in the song, cuz, like, it also speaks to the pervasive alienation anyone who's different experiences in this society.

The Devil Is Dead - Lyrics

This picture really has nuthin' to do with the manifest content of the song, since it's about a dragon. But, the double-image in this picture really goes with what the song's tryin' to convey - that owning our own shadows (or alter-egos) is what we really need to do, or we'll be DESTROYED. It sort of goes with the song, well, sort of. I mainly like it cuz it's a picture of a cute kitty cat.

The lyrics:

I am a dragon and I feel misunderstood
Born onto a planet where their heads are made of wood
........The devil is dead
They think they're running from the thing they think is me
Scared of their own shadows and they drink their poison tea
........The devil is dead
Dying on a planet where their heads are made of wood
I have been deposed and I will always be misunderstood
........The devil is dead
................I am the bad guy; maybe I should die
They killed the dragon and they think that they have won
It will destroy them and they'll have nowhere to run
........The devil is dead
I do not care because one day I'll be reborn
The dragon never dies, I'll take a different form

My band'll be performing this song soon; I'll provide a link to our myspace page, as soon as I get permission from the rest of my band.

The Devil Is Dead

The Devil Is Dead

Here's my second song of the week! It's kind of funny, how I randomly posted, first, a song about Jesus, and then a song (sort of) about The Devil. Odd, how that works out. Lyrics to follow....

Whoah, Yeah, Okay, Cool.

Hey, wow, I've had a visitor; maybe I'll start takin' this site seriously! Dude. I'll have to get my ducks in a row and put another song on...stay tuned!

I have 2 More, but What the Hell

I don't even know if this here type of blog account will enable you to , um, download or upload song-files to it, but it was so easy to sign up, that I impulsively did it. No one's gonna find this unless I tell them about it. I wonder if it'll work.

I wanna post a song a week, and I was afraid they'd be disregarded, and chances are they will be. I don't know what else to do, though, and maybe in this world that is full of bullshit, it would be nice to put something out there that's not bullshit.
