Songs Of An Age

My lyrics have always been about me. I've never shared them because they are the closest you'll ever get to looking into my crazy head. And that scares me. But I'm willing to take the risk.

Some of the songs are not finished.

Awesome cover by Brynna S/S WS☕

7. Inky mess

Inspired by the western world's need to meddle in everything, most notably the Syrian war. 

Verse 1

Destruction's the new in, 

Hear the Dying screams, 

To break a whole world, 

Is our silent expertise.   

 

Verse 2

A thousand can cry, 

For one to stay alive,  

We are the hypocrites, 

Peace for wanting war.     

 

Stop,   

 

Chorus

Look at what we've blotted with our ink, 

Look at what we broken with our bricks, 

We tried to re-write someone else's history,  

We tried to play gods as human beings,      

Now, what have we left others blessed with? 

Nothing but an inky mess.   

 

Verse 3

It will end in flames,

To cross out mistakes,

Trying to make it perfect, 

Will only ever imperfect.   

 

Verse 4

Why haven't we learnt yet,

That somethings are best left alone?

It is not like it was only once

Our intention is just wrong.  

 

So.   

 

Chorus

Look at what we've blotted with our ink, 

Look at what we broken with our bricks, 

We tried to re-write someone else's history,

We tried to play gods as human beings, 

Now, what have we left others blessed with? 

Nothing but an inky mess.
