Abduction (Lyrical concept)

Abduction (Lyrical concept)
By Davin Casey

Circulate,
Circulate,
All around, and
encapsulate me.
Penetrate,
Elevate,
Call me up, and
Overwhelm me.

You've already abducted
the best of us all,
Tainted him deep
With malevolent flows.
Just sitting and waiting
and picking at the scabs
Is tiring,
Humiliating...
We've listened to your message
Since our genesis,
Calling from the heavens
For a homecoming.

And now you speak,
Louder and clearer than before.
Unrest throughout the world,
Trumpets sounding a war.

Fire,
Fire,
Pacifier,
Stoke the flame
And forge the peace
You've promised all along.


Deceiver, deceiver,
Pour me out the bucket,
Make a puddle
From the slag.
Although my mind is all that matters,
It's been scattered
In this sea...
Of your fears...

Fire,
Fire,
Pacifier,
Stoke the flame
And forge the peace
You've promised all along.

Circulate,
Circulate,
All around, and
encapsulate me.
Penetrate,
Elevate,
Call me up, and
Overwhelm me.

We should have let him finish you.



Author's note: I haven't had a whole lot of time to write poetry these days, as most of my writing has gone into lyrics and whatnot for my band. However, I wanted to stop by and share a lyrical draft that I came up with this evening, which also fits into poetical form of sorts... I feel it's a mite on the cliche side, so I may be updating it periodically, but I wanted to share and see what everyone thought while it was still fresh off my mind. ;)
Love. <3
"No one ultimately knows what they're saying anyway. Are we really making art? Art doesn't belong to us. It doesn't belong to people, it belongs to the universe. It comes FROM the universe. It comes THROUGH us. When I write something, I think I know what I'm saying, but I never pretend to know the full meaning of the words."

i really really like this :bow:
it would be good to see some of your other lyrics even if you dont feel they have a poetic concept :)

And so it came to pass
that everything that was
had never come to be


it's a dangerous living this... life...

Did you think that the demon would possess us?
