Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.
I think there is a song out there to describe just about any situation.
A steampunk nation Baby pollution rises up then the loving comes arraigning 'cause Our art's official and only partially artificial And our heart's in the middle of sharp hardened shards of metal but There's not where it settles Because it's beating to the steaming of God's hottest pot or kettle And now we face it, this creation we made to To save our craving for a synthetic rebelnation it's Our safeway they make into a pathetic revelation In our steampunk nation Our steampunk nation
so much of the world is plunged in darkness and chaos... So ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack in everything That’s how the light gets in.
Songwriting and poetry are so commonly birthed from underdogs because one can make even the ugliest situations admirable, or more beautiful than the beautiful situations - they are the most graceful media in which the lines of society are distorted.
I enjoy melancholic music and art. They take me to places I don't normally get to go.
There have been times I've felt so much art in my soul I grew sick of artists.
If I knew what to do I'd do more than write a song for you
I hereby grant you permission to write crap. The more the better. Remember, crap makes the best fertilizer.
I'd rather be nine people's favorite thing than a hundred people's ninth favorite thing.
Because there are hundreds of different ways to say one thing, I, being a writer, songwriter, and poet, speak childishly and incoherently. In speech there is so much to decide in so little time.
The real flight of this hawk is impending. Still,this bird is yet to be tested for real. Though I have leaped over the seas, well,the entire sky is still remaining to fly. And make sure that ,i am gonna do it with all my heart and all my soul. #loveyoourlife #liveyourlife #hvFUN
Songwriting has become such a big part of what I do that emotions and the melodies that accompany them blur into one.
But there's a thin line between songwriting and arranging.
I learned classical guitar as a kid at about 7 or 8 years old. When I was about 14, I started dabbling in songwriting. That's when I got into the folky singer-songwriter style.
As far as songwriting, I'm not sure if they wrote all of their own stuff, but I love the Dixie Chicks.
The 'Sodajerker' podcast is the work of Liverpool songwriting duo Simon Barber and Brian O'Connor.
My songwriting is like extending a hand to the listener.
I mean Gorilla was really our first sort of goes at songwriting.
The guitar influence that affected my songwriting came from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
