The Lyrics

Either the second or third song I wrote. I think I originally wrote it before OSC (2TF), but I had to rewrite it when I wanted to record it, because I lost the lyrics that I had written down.
Verse 1:
Every once in a red moon
I sit watching the sky/on a dark night
Is it shining with the light from the sun?
Nah, the sun doesn't give light to the moon
I'm presuming tonight mars owes it one
It makes me think of how you seem to be
Hating red so happily
And you how you turn around and start asking me
Why red means so much to me

Pe-Chorus:
I'm so sick of the blue/Sick of the green
Sick of all the colors that come between
'Cause red is the color that feeds my need
I think that red is the best

Chorus:
I don't want to look at your face
To you're not trying to understand
[Can't you see what red means to me?]
Red gives me my energy, now you're my enemy
A place for my red

Verse 2:
Maybe someday I'll be just like you and
Hate red just like you do
Become obsessed with the color blue
I remember back then who you were
You used to be nice
Used to have spice
Used to like red
But I should've known
That you'd wear out your redness
And you see
How black it is all alone

(Pre-Chorus) (Chorus)

Bridge:
You don't like red-GO AWAY!

(Chorus) (Pre-Chorus)

I'm hoping author's are allowed to comment on their own stuff, because I really like to interact with my reviewers. Anyway, even one person giving this 3 1s is like...WTF?! The pacing is just about as good as I get, and once again (I've said this everytime. lol) The Chorus is GOLD. Perhaps the humor is lost to some people, who don't understand the origins of this song, which I should've mentioned in the header (silly me). This guy I knew in school, he was co-prez, and his whole campaign was RED, because he wore read a lot. So me and him were friends and we kind of made a joke about him and I both being obssed with the color red, so as part of that bit, I wrote this song, then I rewrote it like this to record it. The pre-chorus is perhaps more gold than the chorus itself. "Sick of the blue, sick of the green, sick of all the colors that come between!". Now c'mon guys, that should be at least enough to boost the pacing rating to a 2 or 3 out of 5. But really, they should change the system to a 1-10 thing, because quite frankly a scale of five makes it feel like my lyrics are being rated in extremes.

I'm reading it and...one line "Hate red just like you do", when I rapped it in the song I think it was "Hate red like you do" without the just. And the following line was kind of off "Become obssessed with the color blue". I'm just saying my best pacing is in the pre-chorus "Sick of the blue, sick of the green...". Really, I'm not sure if I said it, I write it to perform it. I don't write it just to look nice and organized and well-paced when you read it. Sure, it's a weird theme, being obssessed with a color, and it's my early early early work, so I didn't have a lot of the experience I have now. If you read my explaination, you'll understand what it means. Anyway, you don't have to use the word "retarded" to describe it.

me again i went to your site and listened to the parodies, they were good but they would be funnier if you didnt put on voices and you sang normally that way we might be able to understand wot you were saying,if it is a good parody you it will do itself justiff without the need for the singing and tunes to be perfect keep working at it.

That is my "normal voice", most of the time. I'm just dangerously tone-death...although recently I've honed my singing voice, but only with serious songs. I'm not doing any new Winkin Shark songs, or even re-recordngs, until the next LP album comes out, hopefully next year, if they're gonna continue their 3-year cycle. Right now I'm focusing on creating an album with at least 10 tracks, which contains primarily serious themes...I'm hoping my singing voice can hold up. Anyway, this is amongst my earliest works, so it is kind of off...but I performed it pretty well, I think...actually, I believe this is one that I DID re-record, although not exactly recently.
