RPM 2018: Day 18

9:54pm. Whooph. I’ve been working for 9+ hours straight on this song. Can’t tell if it’s an opus or a total P.O.S. I still need to sing the choruses and bridge. Here is the music (so far) to “The Remedy”…

THE REMEDY

am i done with external things
i thought might bring me pleasure
what then fills the hole instead
while i hunt for inner treasures

can i point with a pin
when my palatial home became a tiny jail
was it a race for someone else to win
before my avocado boat set sail

atonement
for a comfy memory
or on whatever crap I’ve been depending
this simple moment
might just be the remedy
for whichever disbelief I’ve been suspending

am i done with the external things
i thought might set me free
hundred years with softer strangers’power over me

the soul of an olympian
and the clothing of an old old boy
bending my being to reach for the stars
but home is where these very moments are

atonement
for a comfy memory
or on whatever crap I’ve been depending
this simple moment
might just be the remedy
for whichever disbelief I’ve been suspending

oh i know
it’s harder than it sounds
for a head that might as well be made of plaster
and i know
these thoughts spin round and round
and the mind makes better servant than a master

atonement
for a comfy memory
or on whatever crap I’ve been depending
this simple moment
might just be the remedy
for whichever disbelief I’ve been suspending

this simple moment might just be the remedy
this simple moment might just be the remedy

So that’s that. I had to take a break from song #3 because it was driving me batty. I’ll get back to it soon enough. Hopefully I will come up with a new set of lyrics tomorrow. Leave your rants, raves, and protests in the comments.
