Dreams of Insanity..Rock song lyrics..!!!

on Thursday, November 09, 2006


Note: Writing has been a soul elevator. I have this insane desire to branch out into different genres of writing. I’ve done poetry, anecdotal writing, marketing articles, humor, short stories and some other pretty random stuff.
Another great buttress in my life is rock music. So you know I kinda thought, why not write the lyrics of a rock song. Even though I don’t know the ABC of musical composition, I hope these words are put to music some day.

Theme: A tribute to all romantics who have experienced the joy and the pain of unrequited love. Have you ever wanted to desperately forget a girl, but those recurring dreams make it impossible?

P.S: It’s a rock song for heavens sake. People who complain it is too dark and moody can go and listen to boy band pop!!!

DREAMS OF INSANITY

Lyrics by Srinath


Swirling clouds darken, azure sky no more
Leaden weight of memories, closed eyes bemoan
Drained…The sun travels across...forgetting paradise lost,
Nights creeping hands, the thoughts flood back again

(Chorus)
These dreams of insanity lurking right beneath
Floating petals…Fuelling the fires of desire within
Time refuses to turn…
Following bright dawn’s allure
Running amok…
Eyes wide shut…These dreams…
Follow like a faithful slave


Tossing around...cascading beads of pain evolve
Screaming…shouting…unnerving whispers ask
How can someone who cared now be cold?
Blessed wakefulness frees …
From mirages of days whose scars still sear

(Chorus)
These dreams of insanity lurking right beneath
Floating petals…Fuelling the fires of desire within
Time refuses to turn…
Following bright dawn’s allure
Running amok…
Eyes wide shut…These dreams…
Follow like a faithful slave


I walk alone…clothed in love...
Phoenix reborn, even though only tatters remain...
A thousand scars mark ...this battered soul o’ mine
I will not give in…coz only she can heal

These dreams of Insanity
……These dreams of Insanity
………………These dreams of Insanity

Well nothing less could have come from the editor of the leading marketing e journal of india.....

sciolist said...

I accept the tribute humbly.[:)]
Your lyrics are truly reminiscent of the gothic fancies that have haunted me for days on end sometimes.I am merely commenting on my personal feelings of course. Your poem is extremely well-wrought and I am really raring to hear the song.[I would like Rammstein to sing it. Its just a personal preference again though]

Intensity could not be deepened...
Emotion could not be lenghtened...
Rest all could not be understood...
Buddy.. the language is too tuf for me.. But it surely escalates your writing ability to higher level...
Great work... venever ill fulfill my dream project (to learn guitar) ill surely write a tune for it...

Till thn keep singing.... Yoooooooooooo.....

Therz a quote which goes this way "The jotting is simplicity itself - it is the occurring which is difficult." and needless to say, u r extremely magnificient at it.

Srinath,u knw wht, i knw u wud luv praises from all ends for ur writing skills and i think its the easiest way to encourage you for your kick in the teeth astonishing writing skills.

I know i will sound like a ridiculous fool singing this, so i better leav it for you to find a worthy tune and a deserving singer.(hopefully nt u...lol)u ROCK buddy
