Song Lyrics

So, um, here are some songs I wrote. Seeing as I have a very boring and un-poetic life, they're all about characters from my stories and my sister's stories rather than stuff that's personal to me. Each chapter has a little video file attached with the song recorded, just in case anyone wanted to know what they all sounded like. Hope you enjoy!

4. Red Skies

 

The last three songs were about deep, personal struggles. This one, however, is about the literal ​apocalypse, as portrayed in my sister's excellent (yes, Jem, if you are reading this, it IS excellent, so don't even think about clicking on that "Comment" button to tell me it isn't) book, Monsters and Machines.

 

Do you ever

Lie awake

Watch the sky burn

Feel the earth shake?

Do you ever

Close your eyes

Wish you could sleep through

Till sunrise

Watch your dreams burning red in the skies?

 

Everybody thought I was crazy

I tried to warn them, but what was it worth?

I’ll be here till hell freezes over

Or heaven burns red and rains down on the earth

Devils don’t crawl up from the ground,

They fall down from above to erase all the life from your eyes

If you’re not with me then leave me

I’ll fight on my own

I am not ready to die

 

Red skies

Are you gonna let it burn?

Faith lies

When will we ever learn?

I’ll rise

Fight it till I’m broken, then fight it some more

Hope dies

No hope for peace, so I’m going to war

 

Will you lose your life or your mind?

This is the apocalypse, humankind

Gotta leave its compassion behind

Who are you?

What will you become?

 

-Chorus-

 

I’ll be here till hell freezes over

Or heaven burns red and rains down from the sky

If you’re not with me then leave me

I’ll fight on my own

I am not ready to die

 

-Chorus-

No hope for peace

So I’m going to war
