Pathos Formula Wave: One Score of Rage Lyrics

I’m so so sorry for not doing this sooner. I forgot to include lyrics for the last EP I recorded a few months ago. They’ll be on the Bandcamp page and on here if you ever wanted to know what I was saying.

If you do want to listen and/or download at your own price, then you can click here.

Nonet #1: A Friendship Becomes Astray

You wanted the shiniest medals
As you planted a holy facade
Alas, you were so much less
Sorry for believing
And for my silence
Uprooting will
Be at hand
You false
Friend

Nonet #2: Hate as a Trendy Endeavor

Hatred was the quickest endeavor
Draining a county per second
Growing the most toxic prairies
The unsound are exalted
The congregation howls
As exaltation
to trendy gods
Forsaking
Purest
Hearts

Nonet #3: Crimson Stained Flowers

Pearly flowers shower over you
While basking in crimson waters
Some drones have dubbed you a queen
Wearing a defiled crown
Do you understand?
You say you don’t
But you lie
As you
Smile

Nonet #4: Abject Disrespect

I hope a bleak future awaits you
As you survive a great penance
I want you to think of me
As misfortune will land
Abject disrespect
Will come for you
This mirror
Told you
So

Nonet #5: Dog Whistle Language Waltz

Misinformation is your gospel
Dog whistles are your sermons
Someone should have severed your
Loathsome arsenic tongue
So, great architect…
Will your churches
Be rendered
Unto
Doom?

Nonet #6: Not Another Piece of Art Bashing a Jock (Oh Wait. It is. Can You Not Read the Sarcasm?)

This ego and a stadium are
The same size and beckon spotlights
Touchdown minds and field goal hearts
Embossed like big letters
Along with colors
For the home team
Varsity
Buffered
Pride

Nonet #7: Valleys of Endless Pretension (A Post-Rock Fanatic Satire)

Swarthy monochromatic get ups
Scream “I’m a talented composer!”
Drowning in delay pedals
Incalculable times
Pretentious bridges
Turning noses
Skyward and
Faking
Art

Nonet #8: An Expose on a Feedback Loop

You have no light to complain about
The sound of my voice as you scream
Constantly while bossing me
And being petulant
You need to grow up
Stop projecting
All your faults
Onto
Me

Nonet #9: One Score of Rage

Once core of rage under lock and key
Re-contextualized into
An unbound sonic thesis
Despite my placid moods
I’m far too patient
Which was a curse
For being
Silenced
Then

Friendship Friday: Lifestory:Monologue

I really miss this band. I wish they wouldn’t have broken up so soon.

This is Lifestory: Monologue. They hail from Guelph, ON, Canada, and they were such a great band. They mix elements of post-rock, ambient, spoken word lyrics, and a dash of some hardcore for good measure. I had the fortune to see one of their very few concerts here in America and they put on one heck of a show when I saw them at Cornerstone 2009. I put up a video with the original version of their song “The Coward” (better than the later version in my opinion).

RIP Lifestory: Monologue. Your music will not be forgotten.

Most of their discography is free or pay-what-you-want on https://lifestorymonologue.bandcamp.com/.

Carapace Lyrics And Inspiration

https://ospreyshire.bandcamp.com/track/carapace

How do I revitalize a necrotized soul
To control vitality down to each scintilla
As my back becomes a pincushion for
Fraudulent friends
Ending amicable bonds
I want to trust again
But it’s hard to trust when one dons
A Carapace
I want to trust again…

This is the first track to my debut EP. I wrote this as a small freeform poem when I’ve spiraled over the thoughts of friends betraying me or when some other people derogate me in any way. Truth is, I don’t trust a lot of people out there. I want to lash out at everyone, but I’ve bottled it up so much that I’ve become numb sometimes. It’s not a happy poem by any stretch of the imagination, but at least I’m honest about this kind of stuff.
