Fade....

Fade....

Fade....

Fade, it always melts and fades.
There's no way that I can win
Reach into...
Hiding don't know where or....when....

Gets...
Is reaching, yes, reaching
To my center soul....it's bliss
Strange powers over me.
No applause for dream word string
Yet you feel something for key
Just because.....

Pass...
I just rig...
I just wallow, follows me..souls...are...intact
Cause upheaval
Know that guide is on my side
All those things that I want.

Disembodied souls you can assure
Upward swing as a lark by your tune.

But...
And if you keep your absence
Absently up you'll balk yourself right out of a job.
Out of my soul...
Subdue I'd get you, subdue I, don't want to.

Fade...

I'm sure that my mind is leafed
With connective lines....
But they strayed
They are mere...
My gear...is always in one place
But my thoughts they do miss, fawn and sway
It always melts and fades.
That's a way that I can win.

I see you...
Hiding under there with....in.
Threats...
Are wrecking, yes, wrecking from
An eager twist.
Cause upheaval
Know that guide is on my side
All those things that I want.

I have always known you were obscure
And you sing by the dark of the loon.

But...
And if you keep your absence
Absently up you'll balk yourself right out of a job
Out of my soul...
And out of my sight too
Out of my, my sight too...

Fade...

Oh, song I wish for, do not stay away all the day
Oh, song I wish for, I'm glad that you came and stayed
Oh, song that occurs, stay with me all the night and day.
Oh, song that occurs, flow again, and stay.
Oh, song I prefer, I hope you do not fade away.
Oh......I'm glad your game is, away
Oh, song I prefer, "I hoped you wouldn't feel that way.
Yes, I dread...I fished.
Oh, song I wish for, can you stay with me one...day
Don't fade for me....

Fade.....

Excellent job on a none-too-easy OS. "No applause for dream word string"? You get plenty of applause from me on this one.
Adagio - February 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks Larry and Jack!

I really like the OS now. I just need a break from it from listening to it constantly.
Paul Robinson - February 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Yeah, Pat - listening to "Suede" endlessly to determine how to pace your parody is an experience that can "dis-Suede" you from listening to it for at least a couple weeks after you submit your piece...I KNOW from experience...lol...but I do really like the song...

Very good wordplay about thoughts and tunes that wander in and out of the consciousness (at least, that's what I got out of it).

DKTOS (Isn't it funny how I only know maybe half the songs in the SOTM contest?) Anyway, I really didn't see much humor in your parody. It looks more like a parody of Tori Amos' style rather than her songs. The lines could have been funnier. 333
Adagio - March 08, 2006 - Report this comment
Chris....this type of my parody is meant to be profound, not funny. Where did you get a copy of her lyrics? They're mostly all wrong on the internet. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion about style, BUT I know that the pacing deserves a 5.
Agrimorfee - March 09, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Trust Adagio to always submit spot-on pacing and profundity. It seems a lot like a Tori song all by itself, doesn't it? Probably makes more sense than the OS, too!
Adagio - March 09, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks Agri. - I really needed those nice words. : D

(SOTM) Adagio, I gave you a lower rating for humor since it just doesn't seem appropriate for you, but I think in a way you bring your own quality to the site. I've always seen you as the pensive poet among the rest of us howler monkeys. Creative work.

SOTM - Adagio, have you ever considered to take parts of your parodies and submit them for poetry contests or something like that? While working on your parodies you end up with stuff I think would go down well in such forums (not that I'm an expert, but browsing the internet takes you places you know), stuff like this:

Disembodied souls you can assure
Upward swing as a lark by your tune
But...
And if you keep your absence
Absently up you'll balk yourself right out of a job
Out of my soul...
Subdue I'd get you, subdue I, don't want to
Adagio - March 12, 2006 - Report this comment
Peter.............I've done just that, in fact I still belong to two poetry sites. BUT, ...they of course would let me submit it like that, but then critique in such a way that I would have to, say, take that little verse and COMPLETELY (to me) destroy it because it didn't make sense to them, they wanted everything except my blood type, and I'm not sure they didn't want that too. In essence, it ended up very unpoetical to me. I've read the old poets...they break every rule in the so-called book, make sense when they want to, etc. I discovered that I really liked the people here better and I don't get half as much flak when someone doesn't understand. It seems as if people here are more accepting of ...uh...weird ways and say that's just the way she writes. Plus I frankly didn't like the people over there.....they're too pretentious.

(SOTM) See above. I found two recordings for this (both live); the first sounds like Tori is singing in a sewer pipe (her sound person needs to be fired). The second is much better quality but there are some fairly major differences to this. Anyways, what I said before and kudos for varying the "oh..little sister" parts as well.
Paul Robinson - March 12, 2006 - Report this comment
Hey, Red...just an FYI - yeah, Tori's 'live' versions are pretty much NEVER the same as the recorded version. I'll bet the "sewer pipe" sounding one was from one of the "Official Bootleg" disks that Tori authorized a few months ago...I bought a pair of the 6 available...they were interesting....but the recording quality was not particularly good. which is really a shame. The ones I bought were not even close to the quality of her regular CD's. Anyway, on "Suede" it happens that even her written lyrics differ from what she ended up singing on the Studio Recording Pat was working with (From Disk 1 of "To Venus & Back", released in 1999). I can verify that the parody pacing here is spot-on with that recording...which, BTW, is not especially easy to do on that song.

Confission - March 18, 2006 - Report this comment
didn't want to elaborate, but since you asked, it's a site where a bunch of depressed goth-emo wannabe-intellectual teens post horrid poetry which mysteriously and confusingly makes little sense and therefore must be profound
Dumb Ass Kid - March 18, 2006 - Report this comment
[SOTM] DKTOS, and the 30-second sample on Amazon doesn't give me enough to base a vote on. By comparison of OS lyrics, however, this seems spot on (no vote)
Adagio - March 18, 2006 - Report this comment
Dang, Confission! Exactly why I don't go to one of the poetry sites I used to anymore. They're everything you said...and more. Lets hope I don't resemble them that much. Sorry if I do....besides they didn't like my stuff the way it was.....they wanted it more gruesome. So, maybe this doesn't qualify.

Thanks for the read., DAK!
