    Okay, so it's been awhile since I've posted something here. I haven't had writer's block, I've just been taking my time. Anyway, read this and please give me your honest opinion and I promise I wont be offended with whatever you have to say.

    Remember Lansdowne St.
    We shout out these words
    Let them bounce off of everything
    As sirens through this city's streets
    In mornings when it's still asleep
    I'm asking for the point I missed
    Or proof compassion still exists
    Through efforts to make the rules apply
    When half of them are out of line

    Pull your facade from the shelf
    You can bury it
    Under all the silhouettes
    The false starts of a new mindset
    Maybe there was logic in
    The way they turned their backs and hid
    But playing across the airwaves
    Our broadcasts prove we never did

    Chorus:
    Sing with every bit of dirt in your lungs
    Just make your voice known for the words you cough up
    Live like you would stop your pulse to change this
    And we'll shout out these words, just pretend it's enough

    Now we scale the perimeter
    Fall back to times we were
    Still frames on Lansdowne Street
    With papers and cash receipts
    We've tried to stay anonymous
    Or keep our names off all the lists
    But we can't hide from records
    When the future's shackled to our wrists

    Chorus

    We hang our heads low
    We're along for the ride
    It's just hard to sit still
    While the world is revised
    Now maybe the charts speak
    The truth, it's all frequencies
    And blueprints to repeat the past
    So are you fit to die for that?

    Chorus

    Great lyrics, Darcy. Everything seems to fit. And I can really imagine this being a brilliant song.

    Awesome. Make sure to post it somewhere on here. It's going to be even better with when it's completely finished.

    The chorus especially--so powerful.

    I really like this one, Darcy. And like everyone else, want to hear it when it's finished.

    Thanks a bunch!

    You'll appreciate this too: I saw Anti-Flag this summer and right before the closing song, he told us, "Sing with every bit of dirt in your lungs!" and that was the inspiration that started it all. It's not plagerism, because it isn't one of their songs. It's just something that he yelled out spontaneously. Anyway, you get the point.

    Oh, I do! And I'm so jealous that you got to see Anti-Flag--I was thinking of buying a bus ticket just to see them with Bad Religion. That's a really cool bit of inspiration.

    I've seen them twice and they were great both times! I saw them with Bouncing Souls. It was radical. You should see them if you get the chance.

    Oh, my, my. I didn't notice that you'd posted something new in here!

    This is gorgeously lovely and kind of rocky (rock as in stone, not the music, I just think that the rock-rock-meaning fits here better, and that's good, by the way). You should post the finished product, that'd be wicked! You always write such wonderful lyrics, Darcylove.

    Thank you so much! I was wondering if anyone would vote for me, but I assumed no one had because I hadn't posted anything in forever.
