    Collection of songs/poems

    Comment please. I'll comment your works in return.

    PHOENIX

    Far away in an enchanted land
    Skies so blue and plains so white
    A flame begins to dwindle
    And the phoenix dies

    Deep in a nest of cinnamon
    A bright fire ignites
    Flaming soul is reborn
    A legend born at last

    Up from the ashes
    Out of the darkness
    The hellfires blaze
    The phoenix is rising again

    Into the sky so blue
    Above the white plains
    Fire spirals through the air
    The phoenix is rising again

    Rise into the air
    Spread your wings and fly
    You have been reborn
    You have been granted life

    Ashes showered on the city of the sun
    And the phoenix is born again
    We are eternal
    We are immortal!

    Up from the ashes
    Out of the darkness
    The hellfires blaze
    The phoenix is rising again

    Into the sky so blue
    Above the white plains
    Fire spirals through the air
    The phoenix is rising again!

    I like this one better. It's a triumphant sort of anthem, the sort of thing that would become a band's signature song. A concert opener perhaps.

    There's some mythology splashed in, too.

    "Ashes showered on the city of the sun
    And the phoenix is born again"

    The legends about the phoenix say that when a phoenix dies, a new phoenix embalms the ashes of the old one in an egg and deposits it in Heliopolis, the city of the sun, in Greece. Taken from Wiki.

    LADY VENGEANCE

    I was a broken man after her death
    My reason to live was taken away
    Woke up every day with my heart a black hole
    Drowning in a pit of sorrow and despair

    Lady Vengeance took my hand that night
    Enchanted me with her evil eyes
    Led me from the light
    Lady Vengeance be my guide

    And with her guidance I learned to fight
    Threw away my old life for this new way
    I would destroy the one who took her life
    Lady Vengeance guide me to sweet revenge

    Learned to shoot a gun and defend myself
    Prepared for that big night
    "Kill him,"
    Lady Vengeance whispers in my ear

    Lady Vengeance took my hand that night
    Enchanted me with her evil eyes
    Led me from the light
    Lady Vengeance be my guide

    Revenge in my eyes
    I travel to the desolate lot
    Make my way to his haven
    Morals mean nothing to me anymore

    Breaking down all doors
    Eyes crazed like those of a madman
    I put the gun to his head and shout
    "Repent!"

    As I stare into his eyes
    I see something strange
    Is it fear?
    Is he sorry for what he has done?

    Shaking those thoughts out of my head
    I pull the trigger and end it all
    Floors and carpet stained bright red
    I stand back against the wall

    I hear Lady Vengeance cackling now
    Darkness spinning all around
    Did I serve justice?
    Or have I become what I despise?

    This song is partly based on the movie Eye for an Eye, what with the 'revenge' theme. It's mostly it's own story though. If you can't tell, Lady Vengeance is a metaphor for the desire for revenge or justice.

    LOVE AND HATE

    We met on hallowed ground at the age of ten
    Young and naive, the world was our playground!
    Oh, what I would give to go to the times of old, back then
    Try as I might, my heart was sealed forevemore

    I fell in love that night under the cold blue moon
    Never dreamed of being with another
    My heart so high in the sky
    As if on the wings of a butterfly

    Fate played it's hand one cool evening
    My world came crashing down that night
    Discovered that truth was a lie
    As my dreams are shattered fantasy comes to an end

    Caught in a web of lies and deceit
    I fight my way out of this darkness
    My world is shattered and I don't know where to go
    Wings torn off as if by a cruel child

    The catacombs of the human heart and soul
    Winding and twisting and turning in a thousand directions
    Oh the tragedies of love and hate

    I loved you more then anyone ever will
    Gave my heart to you on a silver platter
    You smashed that gleaming dish
    Threw my heart into the void

    The catacombs of the human heart and soul
    Winding and twisting and turning in a thousand directions
    Oh the tragedies of love and hate

    You betrayed me and shattered my trust in the world
    Before now I had never known heartbreak
    It's done, it's over, we're through
    You lead me through a labyrinth of lies
    And now it's at an end

    The catacombs of the human heart and soul
    Winding and twisting and turning in a thousand directions
    Oh the tragedies of love and hate

    Waking up to a new light
    I look to a brighter day
    With regrown wings I take flight
    Into the ever blue sky again

    This is mostly a love story gone wrong. A bit based off personal experiences, but I meant for it to be a ballad about a young man who's been hurt, basically. I don't like it as much as the other two.[/color]

    i like LOVE AND HATE out of them all especially "I loved you more then anyone ever will
    Gave my heart to you on a silver platter
    You smashed that gleaming dish
    Threw my heart into the void"
    92% of teens moved on to rap music.If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your sig
    When u (l)love(l) sum1, say it. Say it loud. Say it right away, or the moment just passes you by(l)... Love Is Sacrifice, But Never Sarifice Your Love... Quitters never win and winners never quit, but those who never quit AND never win are idiots.
