Behind the Scenes

(Joshua Lyons)

Sometimes not everything is exactly as it appears. To fully grasp a situation, we sometimes have to look behind the scenes.

(Verse 1) Velvet purple sky Eyes that look like bruises So often they cry Have no other uses Seem to signify A lifetime of abuses All another lie Infinite excuses Try to edify When you're fending off the sorrow Bending all the rules Never set the bar low You should catch a flight Away from precious cargo Unwind and you'll find A way to smile tomorrow (Pre-Chorus) Tragedy is often not as tragic as it appears Most things you'll encounter are just magic, smoke, and mirrors (Chorus) Sleep with one eye open Nothing here's quite as it seems Nervous on the surface Never look behind the scenes (Verse 2) Your whole life he stole Still you give him control Everyday you cast your play And still give him a role He's making you fall You choose not to crawl Tape another piece of bacon to the bathroom wall It's all in your headache XXXXXXXX XX XX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXX X XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX

Hate will not spawn our fate

By Jessie Doyle


There was a time I think when the world ran much more peacefully and there weren't wars or violence and material things didn't matter and everything wasn't a competition to see who was better than one another, a time where people helped one another without asking for it that's just what they did because they genuinely felt love and compassion and unity amongst each other, but then something happened along the way that poisoned our hearts and our souls and what was once love, mutated into hate and angst and the urge to destroy one another just to satisfy thier own needs and somehow maybe one day through a miracle we can get back to getting along and living peacefully and happily with each other.

I Write About You Sometimes

By Corrina Adams


This was made for someone who I’ve been trying to forget about when I write music but instead I always end up writing about this person and never realize it until it’s finished.
