"Life"

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I said I've been working on music and my movie. Well I just started my movie yesterday and last night this came to me and I kept writing. This is the first full song I'm posting here. I hope to have a beat and have it recorded by the end of the year.

Simply titled "Life":

Verse One:
The intellectuals said I was lame
But then quickly they’re tame
I’m rising past intellectual conquests
Scrapping Satan’s test’s
I won’t press
It’s the lessons we learn as we come back to our turn
The lines are short
Back to spiritual resorts
Demons flooding in
And the whole thing contorts
Running round in circles
Will my words be empty
Or will I live what I speak
I’m at the top of the peak
The decisions are made
Jump. I’m ready
My screams burning out the common fade
I’m back with a blast
I made it
Fear and truth desegregated
Debts fulfilled, I paid it

Verse Two:
We move from peak to peak
We’re worried what’s to come
When you think you can’t get higher
Then your challenge is won
Write them down
Then go and live your life loud
Cause fear ain’t proud
Exhaustion from caution
Living a lifeless life
We all go through strife
But the hero’s not the zero with his throat to a knife

Verse Three:
Survive life’s short stories
What was horror will live to score ya
The tell of the tales
What you thought was big, to others in comparison fails
Don’t be scared until you’re lying down with your hands taking nails
Life’s a trip of questions
Answer them honestly
Simple sessions bring recollections of the truth you first knew
We’re sitting in stew
Cook the pot-
And the plots up to you



God Blessa!

Overall, I thought it was pretty good. Kinda short in the 2nd & 3rd verse, but some songs have verses like that. (ex. 2pac's So Many Tears, some r only a 5 set) The lyrics give the audience something 2 think about.

I liked the lyrics, but i was wondering what kind of beat you was thinking to have? since theres only 3 verses and the 2nd and 3rd one are quite short, it will only be a 2 minute song, so i was wondering if you were going to put a chorus or a bridge in this song at least 1nce, just to break it up, but nice lyrics man!

Short, sweet, and to the point, I like it! :dj: I got a question for u though, is it gonna be like an ol' school rap song where it doesn't have a hook, or are u gonna put a hook in it? Other than that though, I think it's very good, u got ur point across well, not all songs have to be long like mine are! :thumb:

U could always adjust a beat Loco, 2 the point where it fits each verse. There's nothing wrong wit a 2 minute song or so. Just as long as it'z good. :thumb:

Thanks guys.

To clear some things up. I know that the 2nd and 3rd verses are a little short. But the first verse a little long too. And I'm definitely trying to make a beat that will make this song all come together. No hook. No chorus. In fact I'm going to try to do more songs with no chorus'. Thanks for the replies and more replies are welcome.

God Blessa! Edited by djsilvertiger
