Seems. Seems. Seems. Seems.
Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…
Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…
This table in front of me –
Is it real?
I close my eyes – is it there?
The table in my mind,
The table in my mind,
The table in my mind,
The table in my mind -
Is it real?
The phony’s gone to town.
The phony’s gone to town.
The phony’s gone to town.
The phony’s gone to town.
Seems.

I close my eyes, and I see yours, glowing white.
You look so fine, you’re too good, to be true.
I lie there awake, thinking of you.
I contemplate, are you real?

Seems. Seems. Seems. Seems.
I look in the mirror, what do I see?
Glass, reflections, but my face,
Isn’t there.
I stretch my arms, I grasp the air,
Like pushing through, the sea of bones…
Is this a nightmare?
Nay I know not seems.
Is life but a bitter dream?
Seems.

I close my eyes, and I see yours, glowing white.
You look so fine, you’re too good, to be true.
I lie there awake, thinking of you.
I contemplate, are you real?


I close my eyes, and I see yours, glowing white.
You look so fine, you’re too good, to be true.
Your smile so wide, your voice so clear, your skin so smooth.
You look so fine, you’re too good to be true.

Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…
Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…
Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…
Nay I know not seems…
Madam nay not seems…

I lie there awake, thinking of you.
I contemplate, are you real?

Seems.

Another song to do with reality.

This is probably my most experimental song I have written so far. I think it works in the terms of a song, but I’m not sure whether it works as poetry on its own.

From the ‘Dreamz’ album.

    I think it works as a poem. It takes on a different life I’m sure. In my opinion, the repeated lines and verse make the piece a bit surreal when read like a poem, which works well.

    What kind of music do you hear with this?

  • its kind of a trip rock piece but with a jeff buckley like singer.
    thanks for the comment, i’m glad it worked! :)
