New Release from The Silence Noise – Did You Sleep

New Release from The Silence Noise – Did You Sleep?  Inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Household Instruments.”

More than half the instruments used in this song are samples captured from around my house in the morning including the toaster, refrigerator, sink, microwave, opening/closing curtains, air conditioner, and coffee machine.

Lyrics:

Can you sleep?
Did you sleep?
Is the sunlight through the window in your eyes?

Awake
Awake
Awake
Awake

Mornings come
But my nights not done
It’s not over when my head hits the pillow

Awake
Awake
Awake
Awake

I’m still awake from the sound of dreams
I’m still awake from my thoughts and fears
I’m still awake until the dark has come and gone
I’m still awake until my time’s run out

Awake
Awake
Awake
Awake

Are you here?
No you’re not here?
The light of day it takes you away to the real world

Mornings come
But my nights not done
I cannot raise my head from the pillow where you rest

I’m still awake from the sound of dreams
I’m still awake from my thoughts and fears
I’m still awake until the dark has come and gone
I’m still awake until my time’s run out

New Release from The Silence Noise – Washed Up

New Release from The Silence Noise – Washed Up inspired by the /r/songaweek theme of “Distortion.”

Lyrics:

Are you too washed up?
Have you wondered where time escaped?
Are you too held up?
Do you wish you had something more to love?

Where did the dreams go?
When you’re left with no one left to hold
Are you too dried up?
If you’re picking at the hole left in your soul

The future is obscured by today
The future is just in front of your feet
The future is a ticking clock away
The future is just beyond your doubt

Are you too messed up?
Have you witnessed how everything collapsed?
Are you too bruised up?
Do you wish you had something more to hate?

Where did your mind go?
It wandered off into the past
What did your eyes see?
They took it all in…took it all in…

It lingers on and on and on…

The future is obscured by today
The future is just in front of your feet
The future is a ticking clock away
The future is just beyond your doubt

It lingers on and on and on…

New Release from The Silence Noise – You Saw His Face

New Release from The Silence Noise – You Saw His Face

My first “Song a Week” Submission – unthemed but submitted in “Week 29 – Mountain Top.”

Lyrics:

I saw him looking in – I saw his face
Pressed against the window
Little beady eyes were shining through
Reflecting streetlights and the pavement
I never thought to ask his name
Or figure out how he had come here
I never thought I’d play this game
Or figure out what he had done here
I thought that you could see him there
The answer to our prayers
But deep beneath the surface now
I see that you are scared
And when the shots came blazing through
You never thought to run
And you saw his face
You saw his face
