Alright, I just moved and changed jobs, so I haven't been on ATS in a long time. My first contribution in a couple months is going to be these song lyrics I wrote, because I really, really like this song I've written. To be honest with you, it doesn't sound to good when you're just reading it, it's hard to find the rhythm and it seems like it doesn't flow. But when sung it flows just fine.

Anyway, this song isXD;EF��vwhe exact moment that I realized there was no God. I was standing on a beach in California just staring at the stars and had an epiphone, (sp?). The first thing I felt when I had the epiphone was fear and loneliness, but I didn't incorporate those into this song because I wanted this song to be angry and uplifting, not depressing or sad or anything. It starts off with a kind of classic rock feel, with a sound not entirely unlike some Iron Maiden songs, but just before it gets to the chorus it gets a little heavier with some...you know...yelling and stuff.
Seriously, just reading the lyrics doesn't do this song justice. I'm really proud of this song, no matter what anybody says about it!
(Though as always, I would definitely appreciate any criticisms so that I may potentially make my song even better. I'm always looking to better my song-writing and each one of my songs.)

I went back and read some of the earlier songs I've posted, and I can't believe how bad they were! I mean...seriously, I can't believe I posted some of the songs that I did. Anyway, what I'm saying is that from what I can tell my song-writing is progressing, slowly but surely. This song is definitely one of my best.

Here it is with the vulgar language replaced by "nicer" words:

"IN WHICH I BECOME AN ATHEIST"

with the sand between my toes and the wind upon my face
i look up into the sky into the starry moonlit space
ponder life and ponder death i am questioning whats real
i thought i had known til i began to feel
i was travelling through life down a road that i had known
now im off the beaten path and im going it alone
im a fugitive from slavery yes my destiny unknown
collision course headed for naught but tomorrow!
i have freed myself from bondage i have broken all these chains
i have thrown away this saddle and ive ripped away these reins
for the first time i am independent and i can make the choice
and i realize for the first time i have a voice
i have weapons for the battle and i have allies at my side
information and opinions they unite and you divide
open mind and open heart the only things i need to fight
revolution starts right now it starts tonight!
i am revolutionizing
im on my way to hell
im no longer compromising choices
for the lies you tell
i would rather spend eternity
with heathens and the damned
than spend one second with a man
who says i freaking cant
live my life!
you have spent the years seducing me, youve had me on my knees
all these years i shouldve known that it was nothing but a tease
theres no promise that youve made me that i will once again believe
how could i have been so stupid and naive
but im young and still i have the time to live the life i choose
many years of loss but many more that i have yet to lose
but im in control and ill decide what to do with whats to come
now ive broke away and i am on the run
i am revolutionizing
im on my way to hell
im no longer compromising choices
for the lies you tell
i would rather spend eternity
with heathens and the damned
than spend one second with a man
who says i freaking cant
live my life!
im a man
im my own man
dont you freaking understand?
you dont control me anymore
ive walked right out that freaking door
and i may lose
but ill choose
and that will be my freaking choice
i take responsibility
i choose my own destiny
i am revolutionizing
im on my way to hell
im no longer compromising choices
for the lies you tell
i would rather spend eternity
with heathens and the damned
than spend one second with a man
who says i freaking cant
live my life!
