Echoes of Ambience

Get Flash to see this player.

Whether you support or oppose war, one thing we can all agree on is that its' scars can be seen for years to come. This tune was written amidst the beginnings of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After writing it with one certain intent, I took a step back and realized I wrote about war in a more general sense, and some of the lyrics refer to more personal wars we all fight in out daily lives. The world is not a perfect place, but every person has a story and everyone has a war.

Verse I
Whatever disease we have we share together
No matter the weather we always stand together
Baby, I'm high! No, I'm drunk! Who cares, whatever
I need you in my life forever and ever
Well maybe this war wasn't right from the beginning
It don't really matter who actually is winning
We're all taking losses and that is how we're sinning
It's a shame it had to start from the beginning
We know what is right and we know what is wrong
And we know what is constantly going through our minds
This grey area in the back of our heads
Seems to find its' way out into the front lines
And you know that we're proud
But you know that we're scared
And we keep hanging on to the words that we shared
Like the thread in our thoughts
Like the war that we bought
And we keep coming back to that guy we never caught

Verse II
These people stand divided
Their thoughts all undecided
Giving their hearts to a guy they've never seen
This can't be NO! It's real and I've seen it with my eyes
If Congress could only see what was on the front lines
Politicians talk and it's our job to defend
Any threat to freedom from happening again
It's our goal or so I'm told and it's hard to believe
When you've got a family they've gotta take a backseat

Verse III
Now all of us here we know what is right
But we continue to fight night after night
Arrogant, pretentious, fools from the West
Always telling people we know what is best
We all have a dream of peace, prosperity
When one goes under the other gets to succeed
Every great empire has its' downfall
But it's hard to find something great about us all

this is really good, I think with a little more work on the vocal phrasing/syncopation you might really have something, that sounds a little awkward but what a great idea/hook/lyric. Nice job! Jd.
