What Happens Today

(Hayden Coil)

A short, simple ode to the songs of old that inspire so many tired musicians of today who can't seem to reach those same creative heights, or perhaps care to. A celebration of living in the now, of the punk rock attitude, and of artistic integrity. It's concerned with maintaining the mindset of "what is happening now?" rather than "what happened yesterday and why?"

Well I may be short I may not have much important to say But I've got my passion I'm feeling human today Well it's a few sizes too big But it's my favorite leather jacket Well if you give me a reason to conform Maybe I will try and back it (Chorus) But today I'm feeling punk rock I don't count cards, not taking stock Today I want to take off like a rocket Mind a puzzle, don't care to try and solve it (Outro) Melodic, hyperbolic Don't anybody still play from the heart Symphonic, yet robotic If it's real music then you know where to start Melodic, hyperbolic Yeah real music but you've XXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XX

The Memory Booth

By Hayden Coil


Memories from the past cause the protagonist to start yearning for a woman he once loved, while he was still in a relationship with his loving current wife. It finally eats at him from the inside and his wife is immediately there to comfort him and accept his sins. He realizes his mistake and vows to forget Marie, and embrace his fragile, tender wife, Annabeth.

Holly's Reprise

By Hayden Coil


A man long ago lost the one he loved, and is now confronted with a reanimated version of her, demanding payment for a deal he made long ago on that fateful night. Holly, or this pale, walking imitation of her, is not the young, naive girl he fell in love with. Now he's the naive one, and soon...he won't be anyone. Perhaps she should have been more precise in his wording, perhaps he should have let her go.

Stasis Squalor

By Hayden Coil


A man gets surprisingly good news from a trip to his doctor, and realizes he has reason for hope. He doesn't rightly know what to do with this information and begins to contemplate a brighter future for himself, while simultaneously drawing back from it due to an established comfort with his much developed, brooding nature. By the end of the song is he deciding to finally think positively and change his life for the better? Is he finding himself too far gone, disillusioned and contemplating suicide? It's ambiguous, and it's whatever you feel is apt for you in the moment.

It's The Times

By Hayden Coil


A socially conscious, iconoclast tale of a tragic heroin, Ida Sue, who in the beginning of the seemingly hopeful tune believes she's the one calling the shots, before finding out they've been playing a more secret, devious game. It's a song about a tired, sexist system that aches for change, but that change is not going to come easy. It's the times, but as another world weary soul once prophetically said, The Times Are A-Changin'. And They indeed are, but not nearly fast enough for poor Ida Sue.

Popular

By Cesar Veliz


This song is about the reality of high school or college and how not everyone can be, as the name states, popular. Some people just aren’t destined to be like that and deep down they know it, this is the incarnation of that feeling.
