David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 19

Album
Name of Song: Horror

I really find it hard,
To explain just how I feel,
To help you understand,
My aching need to heal,
So I return.

Fighting horror for so long.
Sometimes quietly feeling wrong,
Tried to calm it with a song,
Gnawing apathy all along,
It just won’t end.

Chorus
I’ve been living in a dream,
That was never what it seemed,
Trapped for too long in a scheme,
Intended never to be seen,
Not ever meant to be exposed,
And designed to go and go.
so I never find it.
_______

Does this ring true for you,
A sorta feeling like a clue,
Are you touched by what I’ve said,
A piece of dread inside your head,
Or just your story.

I am trying to connect,
So my words make an effect,
So you rise to who you are,
So you know you can go far,
Into this world.

Chorus
I’ve been living in a dream,
That was never what it seemed,
Trapped for too long in a scheme,
Intended never to be seen,
Not ever meant to be exposed,
And designed to go and go.

Yes there’s horror in this world,
But was made by motion whirl,
Different powers at each end,
Simple physics makes the blend,
Suddenly you lose a friend.

Chemicals and forces thrive,
Making motion so we strive,
Ever wondered do we drive
What we say is all alive
With our intention.

Bridge
Look around, how come we’re here,
Does God give and take our years?,
Is there nothing we can do
Concerning mysteries of me and you.
Are we that hopeless.
