Topic starter  

Go on, seeking the false truths, pushing through all of the youths
You seek it no matter the cost, you seek it because you think it's lost
Your searching only one thing comes up true, that is the only thing that is lost, is you

It is your right, to hide behind lies
and to take the truth, and shield your eyes
But the illusion will crack, and so will the ties
You'll run through the abyss, shouting your cries
The thing about the truth, is one day it dies

Sucking all the souls you can tap, catching them your shredding solo trap
Cast them down so you can be right, but look inside and see the biggest fight
Think it's all technical and intricate, but I hear no music from the Devil's Advocate

It is your right, to hide behind lies
and to take the truth, and shield your eyes
But the illusion will crack, and so will the ties
You'll run through the abyss, shouting your cries
The thing about the truth, is one day it dies

Don't let the snobs, tell me what to be
Music is the voice, speaking to me
It takes, my narrow mind
and leaves it behind
They preach about their one way
But I would rather play

It is your right, to hide behind lies
and to take the truth, and shield your eyes
But the illusion will crack, and so will the ties
You'll run through the abyss, shouting your cries
The thing about the truth, is one day it dies

i like that part its catchy and its shows a good image with the world splitting in two. Very dark sounding, what kinda music are you gonna play behind it?

Seeking lost truths that are really false and the searcher finds that he or she is the only thing lost. Nice twist and all in verse one.

Later there's some music references for the searcher. Is this about musicians being fake? If so I like it even more.

The only part that tripped me was:
shouting your cries

which feels redundant. How about "screaming your lies"? You could change the first "lies" to "cries"

Go on, seeking false truth, pushing through the youth. <SNIP SNIP
You disregard the cost, to seek it, thinking that it's lost. <SNIP SNIP
Your searching unearths one fact true, the only thing ever lost was you. <Snip SNIP

My recomendation is that, if you can so something in less words, do. Plus try singing either the words truths or youths. They sound real funny. I believe that the reason the english language aloud truth and youth to act as both singular and plural is because the "ths" noise sounds really awkward, so over time it was screened out. Kinda like fishes. And in music, an awkward sound is multiplied.

Other then that nitpick I like it.

Keep it up. :D

Hey one wing

I actually like this is onw sings it like this , makes it more hard rockish

Go on, seeking the false truths,
pushing through all of the youths
You seek it no matter the cost,
you seek it because you think it's lost
Your searching only one thing comes up true,
that is the only thing that is lost, is you

It is your right, to hide behind lies
and to take the truth, and shield your eyes
But the illusion will crack, and so will the ties
You'll run through the abyss, shouting your cries
The thing about the truth, is one day it dies

Very rock and roll stuff I feel

Hilch :?:

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am

I can't really say what I like and dislike about it because I am pretty new to writing lyrics but overall I like it. I like the "message" I got from it. I have a song that I started a while ago that has a similar topic. I don't really know what you intended it all to mean but I read it in relation to my life and what I'm going and have gone through and the basics within it seem very similar. You've inspired me to try to take my song further and hopefully finish it.
