Got Brains

Hello there you Beatles. Tonight I am here to promote a song I made, which although pretty bad, still needs slight attention to soothe me. This was the song that you all voted on a long time, but I put the name as “End of The Road” or something similar, and I didn’t realize that it looked like it would be the end of the song I’d already made “The Road”, even though it was totally unrelated. Nonetheless, here it is now, on Soundcloud.

While i’m here, I suppose i’ll also apologize for the little hiatus of no posting from me. I just didn’t have anything to say.

Thanks for reading this post and hopefully listening to my song :3

(Please Read and Vote) A Music Post

Hello there you prolonged awkward eye contact. This post is going to basically just be me rambling about my piano stuff, so if you aren’t interested in that stuff, don’t bother continuing.

As I am writing this, I have just sent Jamie a text about possibly separating E-Quality into two separate albums, a piano album and a regular one. Jamie agrees, so we might do that, but before we decide, you get to decide!

Before you vote though, here are some pros and cons.

Pros:

1. People who only want to hear either one or the other get to choose.

2. It’s a little bit easier to structure when they are separated.

3. We can spread them out over more time, and spend more time perfecting them before releasing them. Plus you will get more songs than a grouped album.

Cons:

1. We lose the power of the almighty musical interlude on the vocal album.

2. It will take a lot more time to finish the projects than if they were grouped together.

3. We could possibly lose our listeners that don’t exist yet if they aren’t a fan of the first to be released. They would probably avoid the second album if they didn’t like the first one.

That’s all of the pros and cons I can think of right now.

Please vote on this poll 😀

Thank you for voting 😀

If separated, these are the album tracks made so far.

Piano Album

Calamitous

Flower Flow *

Unnamed Song #1 **

Nightfall **

A Midsummer’s Ice Stream **

Jazz Spiderman **

Normal Album

The Road

Heartstrings *

Heavy Eyelids *

Alone All Along

Paper Flies *

* means they are finished, but will be edited.
** means they are not done being written.

As you can see, neither of these lists make it to album length, so it will be a while until we can call the separate “albums”, albums.

That’s all I can think to put into this post right now, so I’ll just thank you for reading and voting and be on my merry way.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Heartstrings

​A song from E-Quality.

You remind me of the rainy days

Staying inside gazing out my window
It’s you that I am trying to chase
But so far it’s only caused me more woe

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

Heartstrings
Are the most useful instrument
Inspiration rings
Through my heartstring’s torment

Heartstrings
Are the most useful instrument
All my writing
Come from my heartstring’s lament

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

Love is just like other things
That’s the only metaphor I need
Doves can’t fly without their wings
So take my warning and heed

I don’t wanna be the one to ground ya
But I can promise that I will astound ya
Together we’ll wade through the memories
Flooding with our now old nostalgia
But that’ll never happen cause I am not around ya

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

I love you
But you don’t love me the way I do to you

It’s a common misconception I suppose
A ramen-fueled misdirection told by prose
But I can blame it on getting no sleep
See Track 13, sit and weep

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

Flower Flow on Soundcloud!

This is the first song from E-Quality (our album) to go on to Soundcloud! It’s only piano, but don’t let that disinterest you! At least listen to the first 30 seconds of it xD

Also, the recording came out a little quiet, so turn up the volume all the way up with earbuds to hear properly!

Paper Flies

Another song:

Paper flies round in the wind

And the monster’s just around the bend

Plastics are fused with the earth
And the monster’s just behind the mound

Our unrecycled waste
Will destroy us in great haste
As we ignore the signs our earth is sending us
And the fumes ascend outta the old grey bus
Poisoning our atmosphere
No one sees what matters here
Our world
Which used to thrive
Now has few things still alive

Once, the king of the jungle
A lion, once loud and proud
HA, not anymore
Loved by few
Hunted by more
It’s species has fallen
Into a typecast of gore

The massive whales that ruled the water
Now killed into hidden submission by
Monsters
Now that we own the sky
The sea, the land, and space
You’d think that we’d by wiser
Seeing through our high tech, electronic vizor.

*instrumental stuff*

Smoggy skies
Groggy eyes
The humans are the monsters
In this prolonged fairy tale
That analyzes our story
As we travel down this dark trail

All the monsters want is
Money and fame
And the bee’s are disappearing because
Honey is lame?
But know that some monsters don’t wanna
Play this dangerous game anymore

*instrumental stuff*

Know that nature disapproves
The tools that humans use
They crack and break the earth
So they can increase their worth

Paper flies, through the skies
Running from the monster’s lies

Plastics are fused, with rock
Trying to escape the human’s lock

But it won’t get away
If we treat the earth this way
Almost everyday
Almost everyway
The monsters ravage this place
While we run out face
A race against time
A race to the line
No one sees the true direction
That were heading in
No one sees our true reflection
But no one looks again

Paper flies, through the skies
Running from the monster’s lies

Plastics are fused, with rock
Trying to escape the human’s lock

Paper flies, through the skies
Running from the monster’s lies

Plastics are fused, with rock
Trying to escape the human’s lock

Mother Nature wouldn’t want it like this
And it’s not like humans have just hit and missed

Our Earth is clogged with smog
That acts as a massive fog
It’s like the human’s don’t
Want to see the rays of the sun
Anymore, like they’ve given up and run
The factories churn out harmful gas
So much that we’ll soon have to wear a mask

Most of them are
Ignorant
Or simply
Inconsiderate
They care about themsleves
But we can’t move on without them
Oooooh
It’ll be team effort
Fixin our man-made problems
All of us will have to exert
A huge amount of work
But it can be done
We can save our doomed planet
And we really gotta plan it
To help us see the sun again
To help us have fun again.

Paper flies round in the wind
And the human helps it reach it’s end
Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of the post :3

Heavy Eyelids 

Another song I made. Sorry you can’t hear the way it’s supposed to be sung by reading it, but we hope to record some of these songs as soon as we can.

You’d think after all these years
Of practicing every night
I’d be little bit better
At getting to sleep

My eyes droop down
Then flick back up
As my brains gears
Twist and turn

My mind begins to drown
In darkness
But then a thought
Rouses me back to life

Why do you give me this strife
I just wanna sleep
Staying awake in the night
Just makes me want to weep
I just want no more light
No more bright to seep innnnn
I just want to fall into a deep sleep
Before the morning sun begins to creep
Over me.

Right as I begin to lose my grasp
On consciousness I’m hit with a flash
I reawaken with a gasp
And my sleep fizzles like fresh ash
The fire in my brain
That is being awake
Reignites itself miserably
Fighting against the sleepy rain
And I’m right back where I lain before
I got to sleep

Staring up at the ceiling
Wondering why my eyes gravitate up
My ears are hit with an indistinct wailing
It’s me, my minds meak rhymes are leaking
Sound pollution into the air around us
To everyone else it’s no big fuss
But to me, it’s all I hear
The sounds of my sleepless melodies
Echo around the empty chamber of my mind
Sleep winks at me, but it’s just a tease
As the sounds bellow in my skull
I wanna know what kind
What kind of person hears that
My eyes start to feel a bit dull

Why do you give me this strife
I just wanna rest
Staying awake isn’t right
sadly the sleep was a jest
Yet with all of my might
All my fight I can’t close my eyes

And the morning sun is up
Against my face is its gleam
And then I realize
I did sleep
This was all just a bad dream

Ahahahahahhahahahahahahhahahaha

If you got down here, tell me which one you liked better, this or Hi-Fi in the comments.

Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom :3

Advertisement Re-Advisement

So as you may have heard, riley and I are writing a bunch of songs. Some comedy, so serious, and some just fun. So Here is one I just wrote called Advertisement Re-advisement about how much I hate ads. Hope you enjoy!

Also, our site has been getting a lot of traffic and I wanna say thank you! With this luck we will surpass our best year of views; 2014.

*knock on wood* 

Anyways back to the song

Advertisment Re-advisement

 

We gather here today to discuss a topic that troubles us all

An issue that occurs whenever we watch football

Advertisments plague us daily

From orange juice to a new ukulele

Everything they want us-to buy

We don’t expect perfection

But we certainly need correction

Cause some of these ads-just make no sense

For instance

They want us to buy pizza thats hot

So they fly a spaceship across time and space, why not

To get our fill of vitamin c

They plead

‘Please buy our powder

To give you extra power’, good grief

The ads are sometimes totally zany and there are so many that i’ll go crazy

so we need a solution today

Because advertisments annoy us all the way

With movie stars and serene pathways

That somehow become a chevy commercial

Instrumental stuff

Well,

Halftime hits and we go for dip, we got guacamole and some nice corn chips

We settle back in to watch the program but all we see are solutions to paper jams

The game is really heatin up

Will it be the broncos or falcons who take home the cup

The snap is clean the throw is good

But an ad comes on to stain treat wooooooood

Instrumental stuff

We all know that ads are how you stay in business

But right now all we need to do, is end this

Because

Advertisements plague us constantly

With guests like rob lowe and sean connery

So we need some advertisement re-advisement now

Yes we need some advertisement re-advisement now

Yes we need some advertisement, re-advisement NOW

Thank you so much for reading, and as I always say:

A dollar isn’t worth ten dimes, ten dimes are worth a dollar

Hi-Fi

This has a punk rockish tune with a slow part and a rap 😀

I miss my life with Wi-Fi 

Ever since December, Sixth Grade
I’ll really have to try
To get this song done and made

The boredom’s sometimes enveloping
And sadly fooor me,
Google Fiber’s still in developing

*musical stuff*

The nothing manifests itself
In a form that I can’t see
Silent but prodding
It pushes us towards our destiny
Some think it’s asiety
Some think it’s insanity
I think it’s CREATIVITY!

Now back to the chorus

I miss my life with Wi-Fi
Ever since December, Sixth Grade
I’ll really have to try
To get this song done and made

I know this song is full of crambo’s
That means inferior rhyme oh’ s
I stare at my old modem
Hoping it will flick to life
But when nothing happens
I get bored and write this song!!

*musical stuff*

I miss my life with Wi-Fi
With a hole in my heart

It was Decemeber, Sixth Grade
When Clear said oh ah wow I’m out

My Wi-Fi was wike a woyal dog
To meeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEĖĖĖĖ

Sorry for the cheap alliteration
I just needed to fit a bunch of figurative figuration into this bad rap situation where I continue to talk fast even though I have nothing to say but hey, how you doing today. Today’s a fresh start, out of the way of all the problems of yesterday, like losing my Wi-Fi. Without it, I can still read and write and talk with all my might, about the light and how I will continue to fight the boredom with my silent energy. Called creativity.
The energy helps me to tell you this.

NOW BACK TO THE CHORUS!

I miss my life with Wi-Fi
Ever since December, Sixth Grade
I’ll really have to try
To get this song done and made

If you didn’t know
I’ll tell you now
The secret to creativity is down low
Behind your router
There’s an outlet
With your lifeline plugged in

Once the plug is pulled
See how long you last
Before your singin’
And dancin’ along

I miss my life with Wi-Fi
Sometimes saying that is a lie
Sure I’d like it back
But losing it helped me get on trACK!

Hehehhee it’s horrible I know. I had to write this for my 7th grade English class (just like L.O.V.E.) using poetic figurative language skills.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
