Turn it down (version I)



The sound rages on
As does your tired mind
Heavy pounding
Don't know what's the time
Walk in a daze
Told you let it be
You never listen
You don't wanna see…

And they tell you to turn it down…

The speaker's blaring
The noise in your mind
It's amplifying
Time after time
Lets you escape
The cold reality
Into your prison
So you can't see
But they tell you to turn it down…

Burnt, smoked stubs
Litter the ashtray
Heavy smog around
End of another day
There's a war
Going on deep inside
You can't show it
You can only lie.

But they tell you to turn it down…

The speaker's blaring
The noise in your mind
It's amplifying
Time after time
Lets you escape
The cold reality
Into your prison
So you can't see
But they tell you to turn it down…

Sometimes you cry because
Of the prayers that god actually hears
Rather than the one's that's forgotten
There's nothing over the edge of the table
But you still wonder "What if?"
And go down under, down away…

The speaker's blaring
The noise in your mind
It's amplifying
Time after time
Lets you escape
The cold reality
Into your prison
So you can't see
And they tell you to turn it down…

There's a "don't disturb" sign on your mind
Cause you forgot how to turn it down…

  Really good music is designed to be played loud, especially if you're using it to escape for just a little while. I like that message here, summarized by the final stanza.

Since I consider myself somewhat spiritual, I picked up on your "Sometimes you cry because
Of the prayers that god actually hears
Rather than the one's that's forgotten". I recognize such tears as those of joy. Just for good measure I always capitalize that particular G.

There's also a saying that all prayers are answered, it's just that sometimes the answer is no. I could not follow that any would be forgotten, hopefully just delayed. If it's earnest and repeatedly done, a prayer may be answered just to get you to stop worrying the Lord about it so much. (Scriptural)

As to the category of "depressed", a lot of what I've seen given that label might move more into teen angst than actual depression. Sometimes it's a fine line, I understand, but since I've never been prone to either, I'm no expert. I have witnessed what real depression does, and it's very serious. Cigs and drugs in general are bad news, though, and the sooner people figure that out, the better off they are.

I can't say much about any form of lyrics such as this unless I hear it after it's put to music since that's such a large component of what makes both into a song, however, I'm very impressed with what our younger writers such as yourself accomplish on this site.

No song was ever ruined by being too emotional.
