It's About

by Shawn Mitchell


If you want to hear the mp3. - http://www.soundclick.com/bands/6/endgamemusic.htm
It's like the 4th song down, I think. "It's About".

I'll do my best to return the favor of feedback, as well. Thanks for your time.


It's about love, it's about insanity,
And all my damn vanity,
It's about time, and the moments that I lost,
Could I see you one more time, what lines did I cross,

It's about pain, and standin' in the rain,
The poetry I write, and the risk of the game,
It's about the rose, I wanted to give you,
But I threw it away, along with the note too,

And the written words, that I breathe tonight,
In my own winter, a seed of might,
Fails to grow, and I know, I know, I know,
That I'm here - alone, and I know it and hurts,
And hurts, and it hurts, and I can't stop thinking about the hurt
It's going for eternity, not slowing for emergencies,

And I hate it when people say I should've done this,
And I should've done that, I would've done that,
But I couldn't get pass the fact,
That I didn't know how you would react,

Everything in life is framed into my mind,
Slow motion disaster, and yet everything out of line,
I'm goin' out everyday, pretending everything is fine,

It's about pain, and standin' in the rain,
The poetry I write, and the risk of the game,
It's about the rose, I wanted to give you,
But I threw it away, along with the note too,

Is a broken heart, half filled, or half empty,
Can you talk about love, and answer simply,
What do you, when you're a stranger to your own feelings,
It's kinda like business, how are you dealing,

Tonight I gave up, another lost chance,
How can I hurt so bad, if I knew it in advance,

It's about you, and the time I spent with you,
And the nostalgia too, memories pasted together, held so true,
The yearbook of our lives, when you reflect within a puddle,
Ask yourself, how did you survive,
Make it through the obstacles, and all the damn lies

It's like,
I can't love you, can't hate you, can't be the guy you want,
'cause I… can't be the person, I always wanted to be,
Always wanted to see, I like you, I need you, selfishly

It's about life, but I'd be lyin' if it weren't about death,
Weren't about bullets, mentally dropping from my chest,
And I can't help, (can't help), but be a little a lost,
My life is the hands of a 50-50 toss

Nothing is real so it seems, uh huh
But I touch and I feel, like the dreams uh huh

It's about pain, and standin' in the rain,
The poetry I write, and the risk of the game,
It's about the rose, I wanted to give you,
But I threw it away, along with the note too,

Look at the stars, for a celestial light,
The past time, and future, a pedestal of might,
The angel silouhette that outlines your figure,
Dream about tommorrow, right after I look at the picture,
Of you and me, moment, a quantum mixture,

And the mist, that covers me like a blanket,
Not near as soft as ya touch, hell I just fainted,
When I go to sleep, I'm teary-eyed-tainted,
Wipe the crystals away, like the life I've painted

Don't wanna push you - don't wanna pull you,
I'm tryin' to get by, not tryna fool you,
Pass the doors, I could never open,
But you have a piece of my heart, that's already broken,
Take care of what you have, keep the words that are unspoken


Lookin' the scrapbook, through the wonder years,
Can't help but notice, all the fallen tears,
It's kinda cliché, but we're made of these fears,
Of losin' one another, choosin' the other,
The choice of mistake, the choice of a break,
Would you make that choice, for both our sake.

I love the second verse! It's so beautiful! There is nothing that was wrong with this. I may be wrong, but it just touched my heart...in a way. :) Cool beans, ha ha. Nice job.

the lyrics where great. Sadly i couldn't listen to the song, bloody computer, lol. But you can tell by reading the lyrics that it's a rap song. Kudos. And

That part is my favorite, it's good thou, keep on writing in the free world.

It was allright. It's better than a lot of the rap nowadays, anyway. The lyrics were good. I'm not a huge fan of rap, but this was okay.

It's spelled morphine.

I actually found that really good. And thats saying something for me 'cause I'm more into rock but it was really good.
If that is how you think, you may need to take some morphene*.



*I am not sure how to spell it.

Hey this sounds really good. I couldn't listen to it on the site (sadly) but it sounds awesome. Like the others I'm not really into rap but then again, I didn't get to listen to it :( Ah well...the lyrics are really well written.

That was actually thoroughly enjoyable. Never listen to that sort of thing, but maybe I would if it was all like that. Good, simple but thoughtful lyrics, heartfelt content, and some good deliverance with that there mp3. Nice work.

That was really fabulous. Rap isn't my thing, but if more rap lyrics were like yours, I would definitely listen to it. You sound really good to, though some lines seem a bit rushed. I don't know if that's natural in rap (like I said, I don't listen to it much), but I still really really loved this!

Wow. You're really talented. It wasn't my type of music, but I still liked it.
