    Just tossing this out there - are we sure we want to do an 'OCAU-ish' number? I mean - it's not exactly an easy topic hahaha...

    I think it should definitely be geek/game themed - maybe Weezer style, but with a bit of dream theatre thrown in for the epic song length and many solos :D

    Glare In My Face (lyrics only)

    VERSE 1
    Is this moment fleeting or dragging me down?
    Is the world before me even real?
    The glare is cold, my soul is sold...
    No one knows how I feel...


    VERSE 2
    I've stared so deeply I've stared so longingly.
    Morning or night, I can't even tell.
    When I gaze ahead or through the glass
    I missed when winter fell...


    CHORUS 1
    My face it GLOWS from the GLARE it throws
    My work and world ring truuuuuue
    The stories shine, the plunders sting
    My enemies will ruuuuuuuue


    VERSE 3
    Droplets wait to fall from my furrowed brow
    The time has come to make this real
    Press my words with finger tips
    I exist only on feel


    CHORUS 2
    My face it GLOWS from the GLARE it throws
    My work and world tell liiiiiiiiiiies
    Has magic passed, will dragons last?
    The face of death reliiiiiiiiiiies


    BRIDGE
    Is a word a blade?
    Has your grave been made?
    Is it softly will lose?
    The bold... will... choooooooooooooooose


    SOLO

    CHORUS 1 and 2

    Repeat and fade "The bold... will... choooooooose"

    I'm up for anything, those lyrics work well for OCAU actually!
    Can you guys decide who wants what guitar parts etc?

    synthfag reporting in.

    personally, I don't like games very much, or geeky nerdy things, so I'd prefer a general theme

    actually, we should just be instrumental
    or psychadellic
    but you know, I'm down for most things :p

    I'll do some lead, maybe some harmonised parts, oh and anything that needs a 7-string :D

    Jump of Faith (lyrics only)

    VERSE 1
    I see a ghost, standing, waiting to faaall <- TWO BARS 120BPM
    A little goose, handing, no one the baaaall

    I need to move, now, take me awaaay
    Too many hacks, wow, let's call it a daaay


    CHORUS INTRO
    Jump or fall, leap or craaaaaaaawl

    CHORUS
    Every time you swallow this, it's a JUMP OF FAITH
    Listen to my word or his, it's a JUMP OF FAITH
    Dangling by a slender line, it's a JUMP OF FAITH
    Ordered into killing time, it's a JUMP OF FAITH


    VERSE TWO
    Too many left, feet, make me fall doooooown
    A little break, meet, me in your goooooown


    CHORUS INTRO
    CHORUS


    INST BREAK/LEAD BREAK (include short drum solo)

    CHORUS INTRO
    CHORUS repeat and fade


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Change of Heart(lyrics only)

    VERSE 1
    All over ecstasy flows into my world, as a dawning of a new age fills the world
    I only ask one thing as my life is lead away, a chance to see my new battle flag unfurled


    VERSE 2

    The many years were so kind to us, and we sauntered along times gnarly path
    The memories keep my head up high, even as I assess the aftermath


    CHORUS 1
    A change of heart, is it really for what I stood?
    A stray from warmth, is it the only way to see?
    Your love came and went, and now it's gone for good...
    A change of heart... Is now only a memory...


    VERSE 3
    And now I look ahead and hope for the sunshine, forgotten are the days when you were once mine
    People come and go and a few of them leave a mark, some of them bring light and leave us in the dark

    CHORUS 2
    A change of life, is there no other way forward?
    A drive through pain, away from agony
    A new sunrise ahead, I move toward
    A change of heart... Is now only a memory...


    INST BREAK/LEAD BREAK (include short drum solo)


    CHORUS 2 repeat and fade

    I just saw this thread and think it's a great idea! I'd love to chip in with vocals at some point, but I'm definitely more of an acoustic/pop singer, I don't know how I would go with the heavier stuff.

    To the end (WIP)

    EDIT: Got a couple of verses in but I just had a writer's block while writing out the Bridge...damn it!

    Verse 1

    Heart’s beating faster
    Fists clenching harder
    Will this anger go away?

    Killing thoughts in my mind,
    Words going maligned
    Is it here to stay?

    Try and stop I dare
    Oh we wouldn't care!


    Verse 2

    Frontal conflicts rising
    Verbal insults spreading
    Holding off the clash by a thread.

    Cursing is ending
    Reasoning is failing
    It’s going to go til’ one is dead.

    Try and stop I dare,
    Beating ourselves to death.


    Chrous

    It had to come to this, it’s to the end
    Time to face the foe, one must end
    Nothing will stop us now, it’s to the end
    One must go on, one must end


    Pre-verse

    Even when the duel is over, it will only start again!

    Verse 3

    Swollen head gushing
    Adrenaline rushing
    Will I overcome the pain?

    Screaming furious cries
    My face hiding in his eyes
    It’s making me go insane

    Try and stop I dare
    Oh you can only stare


    Verse 4

    Knockout punch inbound
    The oppose crashes to the ground
    Can’t do anything like a slave

    Fear is showing in his yells
    Not my own I can tell
    Tempted to make his grave

    Try and stop I dare
    Forcing his last breath


    Chorus

    It had to come to this, it’s to the end
    Time to face the foe, well one must end
    Nothing will stop us now, it’s to the end
    One must go on and one must end


    Bridge (Unfinished)

    And then he pledged for his life
    I know he’s defeated
    Kept telling me now it’s his time
    But why I have to greet it


    Instrumental/Solo

    End of Song
