Description
Radiorebelde recently posted a great guitar acoustic track which I fell in love with instantly (www.macjams.com/song/46968) called The Dream Ends. I was feeling somewhat "poopie of mood" of late and had taken a two week Macjams "break" .... one night I made the mistake of "lurking" outside the chat room (man the things you will read when you are not actually in the room at the time) ..... and started to form some of the lyrics in my head for this tune. My version is called "The Dream Ends (Internet People)" - the lyrics pretty much describe a lot of what we have read in the forums about the ratings system, internet relationships, chat room lurkers, etc. and some of the feelings associated with posting music on an internet site and how "comments" can affect everyone differently.

Lyrics
The Dream Ends (Internet People)

(Internet People … Internet people ….)
Nobody takes care of you but you
(stolen from Outtaorbit while lurking in chat)
It’s ok now – you can leave
I’ll find somebody new
(to be silly with)
Cause that’s all we really have in the end
Temporary entertainment
Faceless people who type in the dark
Something to pass the time
Oh - Fear is what drives us all
Into imaginary worlds
Where we play for a while
But it’s ok you can leave now
Ooh - Must locate my reality
Before it changes my sanity
Ooh – Goodbye - Goodbye virtuality
You aren’t real to me
It’s ok you can leave now
Don’t make me care about people that – that I don’t know
Cause they’ll hurt you – you know

nice one
almost reminds me of Patti Smith. i really like what you did with the track Allanah, good background too. Seems like that poopie mood has been going around lately. Now if I could only figure out how you managed to comment on your own song.

Nice one Pookey!
Is this a treastise against voyeurism? I like the way the tortured vocal phrasing slightly drags against the guitar chords. Very effective!

Well now .....
... "voyeurism" can be a very dangerous thing ... I know ... I did it ... and I didn't like what I heard (read) .... put me into a "poopie" for two weeks ... but at least a song came out of it ... yay ! and I am out of my "poopie" now ......

Nice guitar work
I can see how you found it so alluring. Love your voice, Alannah, and the poetry on this was very nice. Thanks for sharing. Terry

gotta jump in this as well
It's always amazing to do a collaboration, and especially to have a track get the attention of someone as talented as Alannah is. I have to say that I love the direction she went with it. One of the cool things about working with someone is that they can take a song in a direction that you didn't know possible, and Alannah did that here and I think really did a great job of it. And thank you all for the kind words!

Ah, but even if the direction
that our sultry songstress takes after wresting the wheel, wasn't foreseeable, it is always the right direction. I missed and I miss you. Thanks to Helena, I found this , as soon as I came on. Every once in a blessed while, the virtual introduction lads to a real friendship. I know that for a fact. Real people are real in every venture, in every iteration. You are the real thing. Terrific slow and heart-tugging music, radiorebelde. Thanks guys. :)

Thanks Char ....
... I suppose I wasn't so much intimating that "internet people" weren't real people so much as I was feeling like the internet people can become an addiction and for a lot of people rushing to their computers to see if they have an email, a message or a comment on a posted song - people who they have never met sometimes seem to take on more importance than the people who are sitting right next to them ..... and somehow the "drama" online seems more vivid than the "drama" in our everyday real lives ..... it's right up there with wanting to sleep all day because your dreams are way more fun than your usual day ... haha

Oh yeah,
sweeetcheeks, I get that. Since I began coming here almost a year ago, I always enjoyed the back comments from those that I visited. I had very little society in my life and this place fulfilled a real need. I look for blessings to evaluate my involvement and I have been blessed here. Count yourself as one of my blessings. :)

interesting
very nice singing.
I haven't come across too many songs dealing with the internet addiction thing... I am sure many MacJammers will relate!
Taking a break is a good thing I'd say.

Internet
Internet blues. Your vocals deliver the dark tone of the lyrics well. It is hard to be real when you are not communicating face to face.

Thanks

Well ....
... most times I find it "hard to be real" even when "I am communicating face to face" ..... I think it is tough for most people when "reality falls somewhat flat of the fantasy" .... and the virtual world offers up a lot more fantasy I suspect than the real world.

Wow!
An already "sweet voice" that's only become sweeter! Very nice young lady...... I haven't been around the binary realm for quite some time! Nice to hear an angel sing, been awhile, no? Thanks for the listen and thanks to Radiorebelde, for the nice bed in which you laid such beautiful vox to! Kudos....

};-PEACE,

Alvin

a topic that'll get a lot more play
I think this is a good vein to keep mining for lyrics. With some pretty serious issues ahead for the world community, the trend toward faceless, village-less substitute interactions has on its bottom side a lot of hate and fear. This doesn't bode well for the need to work together as collaborators in addressing things like global warming and waste and greed.

Anyhoo, I enjoyed this and will listen to more of your work.

Interestingly ....
... I am finding more and more that the internet relationships that people are making are taking precedence over their real life relationships ... people will blow off their pal to run to their computer to check their email or see who is in the "chat room" hahahaha but it's true ... you pretty much don't have to leave your house to do anything anymore - this should come as good news to the agoraphobics of the world!
