Finished a song, in three parts. I put this down for a while, while I got back into the novel. It’s part of the concept record, which I’m not calling a rock opera anymore. It’s not a rock opera—it isn’t told from different character’s points of view, like Tommy: The Acid Queen, Cousin Kevin, Tommy, etc. And not like my own novel, which trades off between two characters. But it still parallels what’s going on in the book: WW III.
Oh my dear world will you leave us alone
We’re independent of what has gone wrong
We need the time to work out our lives
If we do not we will hate you in time
That might be wrong but that's the way it is
We’re in a prison of others’ ideas
They need the time to work out their lives
If they are wrong do we deserve to die
Come on peace, you arrive today, on the way
What a relief, we will pass away
What’s beneath the silver lining, is it peace or is it dying?
This is a remake of something I posted here earlier, all on acoustic guitar. Pretty much the catalyst for me trying to figure out a better way to record. Don’t tell me you like the acoustic version better b/c I don’t want to hear it.
Dear World/Come on, Peace/Silver Lining
