New Song: Undone

Another new song is here! Since David's been home we've been able to record these. Unfortunately, that will stop soon. I wrote this song a few months ago. The song closely parallels the themes of The Good The Bad And The Ugly, although I had not seen the film when I wrote this song. Hope you enjoy!

This time we won’t get away
this time its not gonna be ok
this time when the freight train comes
it’ll be an empty one
and the noose will be tied around your head

we’ve been friends for a long long time
we’ve gone through the fire together
but now it’s come down to life and death
you’ll be the one underground

because I don’t value you more you value me
so the test is who’s quicker with the gun
and with this smoking barrel that some call
the law in my hand everything we’ve
shared has come undone

this time I’m gonna let go
this time there are no second choices
to get me out alive
and the years past will simply fade

War Ends

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've posted anything, but here's something new: A Song! Also, feel free to check out my new youtube channel: You can download this song FOR FREE on Noisetrade. I posted it below this post. Hope you enjoy!


War Ends
by Jonathan Wright

Verse 1

When this war ends
we’re just actors in a play
figures on display
and when this fever breaks
I’m no better than you
we’re all the same


because we are knee deep in our own blood
we are knee deep in our own blood
never mind the back stabs and the
cruel jabs to those around us

Verse 2

Time is fleeting
disguises will fade
hearts will stop beating
then we will see
what fools we really were
how close we came
to living

We are Hope

Hey Everyone! Finally got another song recorded, and I'm pretty excited about it! This will be the first song with drums. It's not me playing them, it's Jordan. (because he's better) I actually wrote this song a while ago, and we recorded it, but that didn't come out too well. So we scrapped it and started over, and this is what we came up with! Hope you enjoy this song!

Here's the lyrics:

We are the life in the dead of winter
We are the light in the dark
We are the warmth till the end of the night
We are the calm in the storm
We are hope We are hope

Verse 1
the leaves fall off the trees
and the coldness of death descends upon you
the last heat of the year
rises to the sky
through your desperate fingers

Verse 2
the sun sinks low in the western sky
will it ever rise again?
the darkness smothers your eyes
feel the world and be blind

Verse 3
the clouds come like a steamroller
crushing everything with rain
it washes you out
the blue sound and bland sight
makes you wonder if there was a thing called sun

you’ll always have hope you’ll always have hope (2X)

Hey everyone!

For some reason all of our Youtube videos were deleted, so that's why right now you can't play the songs. I'm really sorry about this, and I'll try to get them back up as soon as possible.

Song: The Finish LIne

Hello, friends!

This is my first "official" (with lyrics and almost properly recorded) song in a while. The EQing on my voice is pretty bad, and as you know, I'm not a very good singer. (some of the parts are rather horrendous) Don't worry, it's not just me and a piano, so be patient! When I wrote it, I was pretty much obsessed with it, so I hope you like it too - Jon

Verse 1
An ounce away from a quart of blood
but then again, the blood’s still coming
A foot away from a pile of gold
but then again, you gotta live to take it

Verse 2
And when the blood was still in your veins
you wanted nothing more than to hold it
but now that it’s left what good would gold do
in your arms that couldn’t even feel it

And the body that used every ounce of it’s strength
to grasp those very pieces
is now lying dead on the ground in a
dark mine with no one to shed a tear

What good did you do?
like a honeybee making honey only to have it stolen
your race has finished
but you never crossed the line
somewhere along the way
the corpse lies under the ground

Chorus 2
This is your story it could have been quite a tall tail
but you ran the wrong direction the whole time

Hello Friends!

I haven't gotten to record for a while, due to the crazy holidays and everything else. However, I am planning on starting up again, hopefully next Sunday. I finally had my electric guitar fixed, (the neck was all warped) so I recorded some experimental instrumentals. There are two sections to each song, so don't get discouraged that you have to listen to 2 minutes of the same riff, because you don't! Hope you enjoy! (I didn't record the drums, by the way)

Love in Your Blood

Here is a song I just finished writing. We did some more advanced EQing (is that a word?) so it sounds a little more refined. Enjoy!

Here are the lyrics:

Love in Your Blood
By Jonathan Wright

Verse 1
There is love in your blood
every drop in the dust
how can it be how can it be
that you loved me to death

There is love in your flesh
you wanted me to live
how can it be how can it be
as your skin ripped from bone

how can it be how can it be
that you loved me
as I pressed the crown of thorns
on your innocent head

how can it be how can it be
that you loved me
as I lifted the cross
which was your deathbed
how can it be

Verse 2
There is love in your eye
as you search the dark sky
for a sign of your Father
and his love for you

There is love in your breath
as you cough up the blood
that leaves you white as death
there is so much love

and every ounce of that blood
bought so many lives
and every pang of the pain
opened our eyes

New Song: Bleak House

Hi guys!
I know I haven't posted in a while, because I've been really busy with violin concerts etc. However, I have been recording songs! The problem is the songs I've been recording have been really difficult to edit. That's another reason why I haven't posted anything.
This song is about someone who believes there's nothing more to them than what's on the outside. Here's the lyrics:
Bleak House

By Jonathan Wright

This is just a bleak house
there's nothing more to me
empty rooms reveal
another empty feeling
from my heart

Gray the house I live in is gray
there are one-way windows looking out

movement around me
no movement within me

Hope you enjoy the song!

Instrumental-Guitar 2

Hello Friends!

Here's another instrumental song. I haven't been able to fit in a recording session, (I'm really busy!) so I recorded this at home. I think it turned out a little better than the last. (these instrumentals are primarily experimental, so don't expect perfection! : ) ) I had come up with this riff a while ago, but never really elaborated on it until now. Hope you enjoy it!
