Spring came with Eden
a new world was born
life was abundant and free
Rains of creation
caressed every nation
men grew and spread like the sea…..

Summer came quickly
and stayed with the Earth
as centuries of time passed on by…..
Freedom was founded, men lived under gods
and cities reached high to the sky….

But late in the Summer
men turned from what’s right
hate reigned with a fiery brand
wars raged everywhere
men killed without care
pollution had poisoned the lands

We are the children Of Autumn
as season known most as the Fall
Winter draws nigh,
in it’s storms Earth will die
if we do not prepare…one and all

Winter will come without mercy
evil will rule men and fear
your God in his wrath
will step down in it’s path
and take all of his children from here.

Woe to those caught in the middle
Woe to the ones left behind
they’ll be wishing for death
with every breath
but the Winter will stay
for all time……..

We are the children Of Autumn
a season known most as the Fall
Winter draws nigh,
in it’s storms Earth will die
if we do not prepare…one and all
we must rise as one…
answer the call
to make peace
and bring hate to a halt
there’s still time to
correct all our flaws.
lest we’re all left
to scream in the squalls
of a world that is left
stripped and raw.

Hi Matthew,
If you have read, or heard any of mine, techno is not a genre I am too familiar with but I feel this. It is a well written lyric and the music suits it well. Personally, I would prefer to hear it sung, more than mostly spoken. I tried to sing along with it, and it is haunting. I like that. But up to you, like all my comments, KOS.

Matt,

Pretty cool lyrics, a modern Shakespearean soliloquy. I like your "operetta" approach here--and can imagine a more stereo dynamic orchestral arrangement with this which would really be cool and dramatic. I know, it's not cheap getting those wonderful tracks, but would really take this to the next level for sure.

Nice writing,

steady-eddie

Hey John Thanks for the listen and the comment, The vocals just sailed out of my mouth as i recorded it. There is room for a redo. I am glad you were moved by it. the music came from tokoyo and I had to record the vocals over my tascam dgital recorder.

Hey Eddy Thanks for the listen and the comment. I would love to see this song orchestrated to the max but I would also love to drive a Rolls Royce and suck caviear out of a blonde bombshells navel....But!!!!!??? I wrote the lyrics and vocals to a 15 year old stellar recording From Hajime who lives in Tokoyo Japan, He is thinking about re-recording the original from scratch and fitting it tighter to my vocals....so we'll see.

Matthew,

I think this is a fabulous piece. The lyrics are strong yet orderly and simple, and your delivery of them is nearly otherworldly and full of foreboding. The orchestral soundtrack is fitting. The whole thing has a weird, ominous vibe that really catches my ear. It's certainly not like any other song I've ever heard, at least none that come to mind at the moment. It's original, true to its own nature. I like it. Thanks for posting. ... David

Hey David, thanks so much for your listen and your comment. You have pretty much detailed in your comment what I was going for, a short synopsis of the history of the world, as compared to the seasons, a touch of Vincent Price and perhaps a ray of hope.if we all can make amends in so many wyas that we haven't. A man can dream....can't he??

"The standard by which I now measure the things in my life is the following: If I was on my death bed, or if I knew I had a short time to live, would this issue be important? If the answer is no.. I don't sweat it at all. If the answer is Yes, you better believe it goes to the front of the order of today's business!" -Brian Austin Whitney
