Song 1

I listen to so much music, occasionally I get an idea for a song. The bad part is that the last time I played an instrument was 6 years ago, and I haven't picked up my oboe in a long time.

But just like when poems hit me, I write down the words I hear. If I could hook a tape machine up to my head, I could broadcast the song, guitar chords drums and all. Hell, one of them was a country song, which shocked the hell out of me. This one, I don't even remember what inspired it, but I read the words and the tune plays.

This has a rock inflection, fast tempo, electric guitar. More cymbals near the end. I'll admit, it's kinda formulaic-looking in terms of lyrics, but trust me, I won't quit my day job. Heh.

What's going on in your world today
The news reports are thin
All I hear is you're abandoned
You claim you'll never win

A hermit on a hilltop
Scouting out the land
Too busy looking down the road
To see the helping hand

Living life like a samurai
Choosing your fate alone
Death before dishonor
The blood on your hands is your own

Colder than Mount Fuji's top
Your resolve will see you through
But if you reach the finish line
Then what will you do?

Going through life like a samurai
Facing your fate alone
You know the path you're taking
Will never lead you home
Will never lead you home

Killing your life like a samurai
Facing your fate alone
Death before dishonor

Living your life like a samurai
Living your life like a samurai ...


So, how loudly would I get booed off the stage?
