    This fortnight's topic is...

    Hmmm... sounds like fun! I'll try to find time to participate
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Unrelated to the topic, because I'm a P and I don't like topics


    Primal

    Time dissolves
    Within the blackened glass of eternity
    The tick slows
    Behold!.. the faithless cliff of sanity

    Echoes burst
    Whispering shadows, profanity!
    Imps release
    Succumbing lows, insanity!
    Sour dream
    Surreal layers, abnormality...

    Now you've seen the vast unseen
    Fallen, stopping in between
    Primal layer can't careen
    Worlds beyond can't be foreseen

    Tell me mortal,
    What's your price?

    Riches brought on by demise,
    Can be yours, tell me your price!
    My grim hunger can't wait twice.

    Who are you?
    What do you offer?

    I bring all you've ever dreamed,
    For a slice juicy and steamed.

    I seek love, demonic figure
    It is worth the price I figure...

    So be it, you pale mortal
    Sell your soul and be immortal!


    Yet the mortal can't have known
    The true price of his own soul

    Loving hourglass of time
    Craving sand...for it to shine,
    All the deserts shall be mine

    ^ with inside/outside, nothing can be unrelated.


    Mumbo jumbo
    Dumbo spoke of mumbo jumbo,
    seldom had we had our keldom,
    Mystic might mend a mind,
    I forgot.

    EDIT (at guesswho's coloured text post)Dun dun Duuuuuun:

    There's a twist, I wonder if you seek it. A knowledge stored, deep inside of you.
    Wander down the stairs, or is it up? Take a left, walk to the right.
    Always stay ahead in the mindful game. Paradox is parallel to yourself.
    Once you find it, you will have lost it forever.

    I live in words
    Binary Codes

    I locked myself
    In nature's wealth

    Encrypting rain
    Within Spring's reign

    I live in strings
    Conscripting dreams

    Going along
    Vibrating songs

    Inside the seas
    I hold the keys

    Behold

    The breath of a million stars
    Holding the shadows,
    Of millions more

    Twisting and spinning
    The heart of a million worlds
    Mother of millions to come

    A heartbeat for eternity
    Eons of drums of Earth's pulse
    Restless, flaming rains of life

    The eye of a nebula
    Piercing rainbows of unseen lights
    A palette for everything to come

    The dust of creation's bakery
    Souls drifting in it's recyclery

    A million lost particles
    Dancing tonight
    In front of unsuspecting eyes

    Passed futures laugh intersecting,
    Future pasts from now and above

    The cycle of life
    The future's been done
    And done shall it be again

    "Outside and Inside" was once a title to a song I recorded when I was a youth. In those days where I looked at music with a naiviety that these years wouldn't allow. Instead, I now examine music for what it is: entertainment. Aspirations to develop a career out of such arts seem trivial, yet all too possible now, but in retrospect the track captured the same innocence that I approached the task with. I still like listening to it.

    The song was about an experience, that I refuse to further delve into beyond this, with a girl. How does this relate to the title? Well, at the time I began studying philosophy, religions, and the principles behind self-understanding. In those periods of time, I can recall the idea of "As so above, is below" sticking with me. I related that to the living experience. The relation being that overt behavior, whether in man, or technology, will indicate internal strife. So, if my screen was to malfunction right now, I'd immeditately recall experiences with previous malfunction, which would eventually lead me to spyware, worms, viruses, and problems with the hardwire. As foremention, this would be the same evaluation that I'd retrieve from malfunction with mankind. When examining the issues of politics, I try to deduce them to daily, social human problems - not only to make them easily accessible, but also easily solved, which leads me back to the thoughts I had on the girl, and the recording.

    The song's lyrics made allusions to the Shakespearan thoughts that life was a stage, photographic memory, and generally capturing the inversion and oversion's of a specific female's personality. It was a study of a simple interaction, and seeing through things to their depths. It was a play on the shallowness of the stereotype on the average man/musician or bravado, ending the track with an echo, but not before saying:

    "...A lot of she's
    And only one I...
    I see you though
    Outside and Inside"

    By the way, I only clicked on the title because I thought it was a reference to Charlie Sheen. I was a little disappointed, Matty
    Oh, its
    You
    ....
