Combining Songs

February 28, 2014

Dave Mustaine from my favorite band Megadeth has been know to “combine” two songs into one, like “Good Mourning/Black Friday” from the “Peace Sells But Who’s Buying” album. In “Good Mourning,” it’s a man who wakes up and doesn’t feel so good, something’s not right, something is coming over him. When the words switch to “Black Friday,” he’s a homicidal maniac running the streets. My song’s a little different but I’ve employed this method of combining two songs, and I think, in this case, it makes perfect sense. One is my song “Hear the Child Scream” and I now lead it with “Hear the Child Sing.” Here it is, so check it out and let me know what you think.

“Hear the Child Sing/Hear the Child Scream”madonna-and-child-g

The infant child sings a nameless tune that is only wordless sounds.
But if you listen very closely, you will hear the child say”

“Sing with me and look into my eyes,
Sing to me of love that will stave off the lies,
Please tell me that you will never leave,
And when I doubt, you will help me to believe.
When I hurt, you will help me to heal,
You will teach to me what is real.
You will nurture my dreams.”

Where do you go when you’ve lost everything?Child-Screaming
Do you find a way to try and make it again?
I don’t know, probably.
Why do I feel naked again?
Because everything that I believe
has been stripped away from me.
Strip me down and beat me again.
Spin me around and meet me again.
With those devilish cold eyes,
See me again.
I’m whittled down to my wit’s end.

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.
Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.
Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you
that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

You make me lie, so you’ll believe.
You make me realize that I’m in need.
You bleed my heart, you scarred my mind,
You beat my soul till I go blind.
I’m just a child and I’m asking why.
You tell me it’s a crime to cry,
So I try but it hurts so much inside
When you’re taking everything away.
Robbed of my innocence. Robbed of my youth.
Robbed of my love and robbed of the truth.
You can kill a future — I’m living proof.

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.
Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.
Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you
that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

These scars on my body, they can’t compare
to what’s going on inside of me.
I hear you scream I hear you say
I mean nothing, that’s ok.
Let me tell you something: I feel the same!
The weight is crushing, can you feel my pain?
Oh, fuck it! Well, I won’t cry anymore.
My heart is hard and my body’s sore.
I start to like when you’re using me.
I start to like when you’re abusing me.
You hate me — I hate you too!
You wanna kill me — I wanna kill you too!

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.
Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.
Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you
that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

(Softer voice)
Where do you go when you’ve lost everything? Do you
find a way to try and make it again? I don’t know, what,
probably, why do I feel naked again.
