so write your own songs...

#1 Post by Dentarthurdent » 12 Jul 2009 21:44

seems like the old thread for self-written lyrics got pruned, so here's a new one...

I just scribbled out a quite cool, folky drinking song. It's called

Ale and Gin and Mead

Verse 1
A day's hard work is over now
Time for meself to slow it down
To the pub right down the street
I now go, my mates to meet.

Verse 2
Round the table then we gather
It's time for song and jolly laughter!
Our mugs filled with gold-brown ale
We go ahead and drink our hail!

Bridge
Time now to be gay - hey!
Up the tankards go - ho!

Chorus
|: Ale and Gin and Mead
On them I now shall feed
Ale and Gin and Mead
Is all I'll ever need :|

Verse 3
Time goes on and song goes up
The landlord fills our empty cups
Don't move too far away that jar
We'll drain'em in a single draw!

Bridge
Time now to be gay - hey!
Up the tankards go - ho!

Chorus
|: Ale and Gin and Mead
On them I now shall feed
Ale and Gin and Mead
Is all I'll ever need :|

Verse 4
And when the last barrel is drained
Or all our money has been spent
We'll leave behind our pub so dear
To return soon, cause we need beer!

Alt. Chorus:
|: Ale and Mead and Gin
Oh my, me head does spin!
Mead and Gin and Ale
Is what's this drunkard's tale. :|

song for my band no verses no chorus...
style: death metal
in the process of recording and will be featured on our next promo most likely

Heaven Denies - Omnicide

Abominate the divine architects
Annihilate their sacred heritage
Abolish all that was given
Abide the one who has risen

Too long we followed your lies
The enthroned traditions will die

In the ruins
of heaven
the faith of man
crumbled

Pulverize ancient traditions

Dethroned
Forsaken
Vengeance
Now we will awaken

Inaugurate the renewed sanctuary

Smash the sacred heritage
Shattered to ashes and dust

Scorn the ancient divinity
Smash the sacred heritage
Shattered to ashes and dust

The wrath will soon be unleashed
Upon their defiance

Slaughter the hesitant
Slay the unworthy
Annihilate the inferior
Unleashed upon their soul
"Sing it you pussies!"

My first lyrics which I wrote from a Persian tale, very power metal I would say :lol:

Northern Seer - A King for the Land

In a land far away and long time ago
a king made a vow, promised his own soul
then he betrayed the twisted son of hell
and now a great madness shall reign forevermore!

Snakes, the evil creatures covered his mortal skin
in agony he cursed and fell to the greater evil
in a vision he saw the bane of his throne
so the king went to hunt the chosen one
searching all lands, but no mark in sight
mother of the chosen trying to hide
for his son bears the mark of the one

Would he find the son
or could our precious freedom come again

Flames are burning on our land
will a true king return?
The mark has revealed our new hope
will he become a king for the land?

A perfect trap, what would it be?
To find the threat from my old dream
father of the chosen you have to kill
to reveal his son, so shall it be!
Growing and living in peace was the boy
until he heard of the king that slayed his father
vengeance and fury raging deep inside
now hear my cry, I swear you will die!

Would he avenge us all
and could he forge a new age pure and bright

Flames are burning on our land
will a true king return?
The chosen one is now calling us to war
we'll follow our king for the land

Flames slowly rise from hell,
a bloody battle has begun

He leads us all by his hand
now demons and men shall fight till their final breath

Flames are burning on our land
will a true king return?
The evil one lies defeated and slain
now praise our new king for the land!

It would be cool to know what these are supposed to sound like^.^

I started writing a song too not too long ago, but it's in German, so... well x)

Ok here's mine, I wrote it last for last year's larp season as I play a bard....

Demon's Crown
Come, gather round, I will tell you a story
I’ll sing you a song of magic and war
Listen, I’ll tell you of heroes and demons
Of high deeds and battles on a far away shore
Of words that were spoken, of promises made
Of oaths that were broken and good hearts enslaved
So come to the fire, friends, come gather round
And I’ll sing of the demon lord’s crown


In forests and shadows where dragons lay sleeping
And all had been silent for many a year
We sounded the horn and we gathered an army
Our warriors and heroes came from far and near
I’ll tell you of sorrow, and of broken hearts
Of gladness destroyed and dreams torn apart
So listen my comrades, come all, gather round
I will sing of the demon lord’s crown


The storm came upon us in turmoil and hatred
The rain battered down from a sky gone black
In footsteps of blood we harried the demon
There’s but one way forward, there’s no turning back
On shores far from home, they met with their fate
Our battle-cry sounded with fury and hate
And into the waves and thus sunken down
Was thrown the demon lord’s crown

We gathered our fallen, our comrades, our dear friends
We raised up a cheer for the battle we’d won
Our swords had struck true and we’d thrown down the demon lord
Crown-less, and bloodied, his fighting days done
The raven’s glad of the feast of the battlefield
Crows filled the air as we sang our laments
The harp and the drum and the voices of heroes
Were heard in the hills all around


Come friends, gather round and we’ll sing of our heroes
Look into the flames and remember them well
They all will live on in the songs and the stories
Though they evermore with the Morrigán dwell
Of the words that were spoken, the promises made
Of the hearts that were broken and good men enslaved
I will sing at the fire all these songs and more
So our warriors and heroes will live evermore.
.......and you deserve us, Leviathan

I wrote some lyrics for a black metal song. Here it is:

WAAAAAHHHHHHGGGGHHH RAAAAHAHH
GROOOOOOOOAAAHAHHHAAAAAA
BRWAAAHOOOAAARGHHHHHHH
HAAOUUOOOOOAAAARRAAAAAAAAGGHHH
AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER

As you might have noticed, it's fantasy-themed. Still gotta work on more lyrics, but it's a start.

Well thank you.

I actually are learning to play the drums, can't play guitars for shit and don't do grunts out of principle. So I might sell it to interested bands.

hey Lilyael, that song of yours is pretty cool.

But I understand most of Korpiklaani's vocals, except when tehy're singing in Finnish...

Well, since I have to write something, let's just start with a blast :wink:

The way I write "songs", as a hobby, is to take real, existing songs, and changing the lyrics, fitting them to the melody line so that you can sing them over the actual lyrics... this is is something I wrote using in its entirety the "Suite Lingua Mortis" by Rage, all of the 8 songs (go figure, only 3 are sung :P ) - while the original is about the "Death and the Maiden" story, my lyrics are about the last days of the Romanov dinasty... so here we go:

"An Empire of Tragedy":
I. Imperial Overture
II. St. Petersburg 1913
III. The Eastern Menace
IV. Captivity
V. The End
VI. Execution
VII. Time's Oblivion
VIII. Snow




THE EASTERN MENACE

The times are changing fast and steady
The old monarchy isn’t ready
Caught in what was no more their time

The little son was born a bleeder
And from the east arrived the healer
Doom masked with an holy disguise

Blood… lust…!
And in a downard spiral the crown met its fate
Blood… lust…!
The tragedy was not seen ‘til it was too late


The piercing eyes of the monk enchant
He gave life back to the poor infant
Sure he must be an holy man

The charm within his words grew wider
And the hands of the priest crawled higher
Poured khlysty poison everywhere

Blood… lust…!
And in a downard spiral the crown met its fate
Blood… lust…!
The tragedy was about to unfold fast
The tragedy was not seen ‘til it was too late


The menace was then faced with violence
First poisoned, then shot, beaten, tied and drown
Still he wouldn’t leave his life

Blood… lust…!
And in a downard spiral the crown met its fate
Blood… lust…!
The tragedy was about to unfold fast
The tragedy was not seen ‘til it was too late
Way too late



THE END

This is the end
There’s no escape
Today’s the end

For centuries there’s always been a ruler before me
I wonder why it’s in my time that my line has to cease

It’s cold and dark, I don’t feel safe, I want my father’s hand
My mother’s smile, my sisters’ jokes, and a warm and safe bed

You’re but a boy and no blame is upon you
But the name you bear’s enough to condemn you
Sceptre and crown, and a throne to give commands
Leave them behind, this is where your journey ends

This is the end
There’s no escape

I miss the court with its huge halls and chandeliers so grand
I want the balls, the precious robes, a prince to ask my hand

You’re but a girl and no blame is upon you
But the name you bear’s enough to condemn you
Marriages, sons, the life of a grand duchess
Leave them behind, this is where your journey ends

The end has come for all, nightfall of a royal household
It’s always been this way, history turns pages with blood
Don’t think about the end, death will only last a second
While for a life that ends, there’s a legend that will live on


This is the end… today’s the end

The end has come for all, nightfall of a royal household
It’s always been this way, history turns pages with blood
Don’t think about the end, death will only last a second
While for a life that ends, there’s a legend that will live on


This is the end… today’s the end

There’s no escape
Today’s the end


SNOW

The snow shrouds all the things
The sorrow and the bliss
When blood’s spilled
Only mem’ries remain
And the snow hides the pain

Saved from the oblivion of time
And with a final resting place
The peace that is meant for all
Will finally come to visit you
Will come to find you
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"
~~~~~~~~~~~~
A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Here's the song I just wrote to maybe make an entry for the Brütal Legend Song contest:

Tenacioüs Brütality

Jack Black is back
To ünite the Metal Forces!
Track by track
Deströy! on Metal horses!

Fück yeah!

The Tainted Coil
Demons rule the world
Let them boil!
Flag of Hate unfürled!

Bridge:
Thrash'em to Death!
Battle- and Stringed Axes
Trüe to the last breath!
With All Area Access!

Chorus:
Eddie on the rise
Fight for this reality!
Till Doviculus dies
With Tenacioüs Brütality
Brütality


Motherfückers die!
Guitar Hero attacks
A high-pitched battle cry
For the Army of the Black.

Fück Yeah!

The power of the base
Killmaster by your side
Gonna win the race
With a Hot Rod to ride


Bridge

Chorus

Guitar Solo

Post-Solo

Füeled by beer
We know no fear
Full Heavy Metal load
Till the Marshalls explode!

Bridge

Chorus


(c) by me. Don't try to make this your entry. I'll get you, and then there'll be Impossible Brütality.

I finally found the time to listen to take a look at it... I've jsut sung your lyrics over the original version, and... Good job! Works out very fine, and the lyrics themselves are good too. A few flaws have I found though:

1) in The End, "history tunrs pages with blood", the articulation of the melody doesn't fit to the articulation of speech, so it sounds kinda weird.
2) I think "downfall" would be better than "nightfall" ;)

But otherwise... Thumbs up!

Mh, yeah, I see your point... nightfall would be more fitting to the first signs of trouble, while the execution of the entire family is kinda pitch black night so there's not much left of a "day" after that, if we want to make a metaphore with the various phases of the day :P and I sing in my head "history turns pages with blood" just fine, even though I realize how it's a bit of a stretch having "turn pages" in that position of the melody line... anyway glad that you liked it and that you listened to the whole thing 8)


EDIT: Oh, and I also wanted to spill some "backstage" thing about it... first of all, the moment I caught fully knowledge of the history of Rasputin was when I saw a documentary about him and his last days, and I was struck how the bastard just wouldn't die with all the conspirators did to him... and the line "first poisoned, then shot, beaten, tied and drown" wants to be slightly ironic, even though it's in a very serious context, because I found funny the idea to underline how in the bloody hell the dude just wouldn't kick the bucket :P

For the titles of the instrumentals, I wanted to refer with St. Petersburg 1913 to times when things were still somehow fine (also because in that time St. Petersburg was called like that - I wanted to have St. Petersburg in the title and not one of the alternate names :P ), with the change in the melody of the song going more ominous and eerie to symbolize the arrival of Rasputin, and Time's Oblivion would refer to all the time that passes from the execution and burial of the remains of the Romanov in Yekaterinburg; the "Snow" is the snow that falls upon the fields where they were anonimously buried, until they were eventually dug up and made saints in the ortodhox church... which if the final resting peace and closure for their tragedy (the title is obviously made to be taken both literal and metaphorical, since the russian empire was marked by tragedy, and the amount of tragedy that occoured can be qualified as an "empire").

I just wrote Thash metal-lyrics for AC/DC's "Rocker", just for the fun of it:

Thrasher

I'm a Thrasher
I'm a basher
I'm a headbanging agressor
I'm a riffer
I'm a killer
I'm a beerdestructing villain
I'm a boozer
I'm a mosher,
A Thrashin' Metal Man

Got long unkempt hair
Patch-sewn vest
Spandex pants
And a Bullet Belt

I'm a Thrasher
I'm a basher
A Thrashin' Metal Man

Got blue denim
Leather gloves
A hangover...
And more booze!

I'm a Thrasher
I'm a basher
A Thrashin' Metal Man!

Fuck yeah! \m/ :D

Nevermind, thought of something myself.

Circuits on fire
Total system failure
Lightning strikes the core
And the spambot is no more

I think it should be technical death metal (geddit?)

Indeed.

Time to revive this thread!

Here is a song of mine which has a very personal and special meaning to me.

Decisions

Decisions made
Consequences unforeseen
Distant view will bring no answers

Even the moon hides from me
Forecasting bleakness on my way
or just another idle portent ?

Bridge:
The path has led me to this cross-road
Yet all directions lie to me

Brave steps, or so they say
Uncertainty the price to gain
Seizing the fortress of my balance

Chorus:
If you're the one who decides
Bearer of wisdom
Drawing paths, pulling strings
A fragile puppet in your grip
If you're the lord of stories gone
And of tales that lie ahead
Tell me...where do I belong ?

Fractured mind, embrace what's left
Divining future with the past
(Yet) the script's been already written

Regret won't make it fade away
Face up to what lies far beyond
Leave the old cross-road behind

Bridge:
The path has led me to this cross-road
Yet all the signs won't frighten me

Chorus:
If you're the one who decides
Bearer of wisdom
Drawing paths, pulling strings
A fragile puppet in your grip
If you're the lord of stories gone
And of tales that lie ahead
Tell me...was I right or wrong ?
Free are those who walk away from setting suns
Free are those who laugh at chains that held them bound
Free are those who conquer in vain but won't stop to run
Battered and down you pick up your pieces
To rise as one!
