Daily Lyric: NO NEW SONG

Everything’s so slow and sluggish

I can’t pull my scattered thoughts out of the air

What starts as a good idea comes out as rubbish

The words don’t seem to go anywhere

I need to get centered and focused

That’s what these pages are for

No mystical magic, no hocus pocus

Seems simple but it feels like I’m fighting a war.

Oh, I wish it didn’t have to be this way

I know I’ve got so much that I want to say

I try to will it but the pen won’t obey

Looks like there’ll be no new song today.

Just put the pen to the paper and it’ll start going

But right now it seems like it’s going nowhere

Normally by now the words would be flowing

But all I can do right now is sit and stare

A vertical red rule and 33 green lines

And all the empty space in between

It lies there before me, as blank as my mind

It feels like my memory has been wiped clean.

Oh, I wish …

I know this will end, it’s only temporary

It isn’t a relapse of the old writer’s block

But the thought of slipping back is quite scary

Especially with the image bank overstocked

So I sit here ruminating and mulling

About regressing back to a bygone age

But what do you know, I took something from nothing

And somehow filled an entire page.

Oh, I wish …

No music on this page.

This is a song that dates back to the mid-2000s, once I had finally begun work in a field that suited my talents properly ... but the price of such stability was the loss of the roll I was on in terms of songwriting prolificity. I was frustrated at why I wasn't able to write as profusely as I had only mere weeks before, and ironically, I wrote a song about it. That's the way it just goes sometimes.
