The Spice of Life
« on: May 17, 2010, 09:11:21 pm »
So this was originally going to be a song I was going to write a piano part to. Then I discovered that writing piano music to vocals is hard. I may do it in the future when I have more experience with composing music because I still love the sound in my head when I sing this. It somewhat sounds like "There's a good reason these tables are numbered honey, you just haven't figured it out yet" by Panic! in the Disco. Anyway:



"Please leave all of your misconceptions and your hateful comments out of this so I won't have to listen to the stupid things you say.

You think this thing that I belong to is some weird and freaky-butt obsession,
that is sick and twisted and so,
You think I'm sick and twisted,
You say that I should go and die, but I just cannot find the reason why,
Is it caus I am different?
Why is it wrong to be different?

You don't know bout' what I am so why should I be listening to you,
why do you pester me now?
I know what you say's not true,

But I know just what I am so I should be the one who's telling you,
about the truth of what I am,
You really haven't got a clue,

Variety's the spice of life, that's what they say, it's what I live by,
Why would I want to be average?
It's boring to just be average,
You've satisfyed yourself with lying to yourself of who you really are,
You lie to appear normal,
Self-destruction to be normal,

And I've tried, oh I've tried but time again you have refused to open up your eyes,
Why are you so content,
Just sitting there so ignorant?

I'm really trying to get through,
why does this matter so much to you?
I'd love to move on but you insist,
on making such a huge deal of this,

You don't know what bout' I am so tell me why I should listen to you,
I'm getting tired of you now,
I know what you say's not true,

But I know just what I am so I should be the one who's telling you,
about the truth of what I am,
You really haven't got a clue,

We've danced this dance so many times, I've come to realize that you're nothing,
Bringing me down to feel higher,
Subtraction won't take you higher,
You know, I'm finished, not my problem if you think that all of us are freaks,
We know who we are inside,
Do you know who you are inside?

You don't know bout' what we are so why the hell should we listen to you,
you're all just gnats to us,
We know that what you say's not true.

But we know just what we are and we're all tired of correcting you,
about the truth of what we are,
You just could never get a clue."
