soundtrackofmysilence:
last chapter.
08/13/11 at 03:24 AM by simplejack
I am barely sober
and I don't want to see your face
but I can say it's over
anger and hate go with the thought of you


I am barely sober
but unlike you I speak the truth
you can call me loser
these games I never won were goddamn fixed!


Don't tell me you care
'cause I can't afford another lie spoken with a smile


I shouldn't talk about you anymore
waste another line or two


I am barely sober
another drink can save me from seeing you
but you can fool me no more
when I know that it was me that I let you do it


Can't you see I'm back on track?
(And I'm coming for more)
But I won't waste my time on you
('cause I've wasted my mind)

so miserable.
03/13/11 at 03:58 AM by simplejack
I can hear your voice all over again
the thought it makes me scream
i'm happy only when you're not
it fells like I can't let go
and I was sure the end was come
it's been awhile and it still takes a hold on me

HOW MISERABLE WE ARE
TO NOT APPRECIATE THE JOY WE HAVE NOW
TO LAUGH AT YOUR PAIN
CAN'T FIND A REASON WHY IT'S THE FUEL OF MY DAY
DO EVERYTHING BETTER THAN YOU

I can hear that question all over again
my answer's always "I'm fine"
discover shortcomings to feel better
you should bring me a mirror
pointing fingers out make me weightless
my life is mine so why should I care about you?

there isn't silence anymore, only noise.

This weekend I've recorded a bunch of songs @my house under the name of Background Noise and I've uploded them on soundcloud. Take them as they are: rough demos without pretention.
Here's the link
http://soundcloud.com/soundtrack-of-...und-noise-home
and let me know what you think

don't let this sad song be the soundtrack of my silence.
02/17/11 at 08:03 AM by simplejack
I've started a SoundCloud page where I'm planning to upload some recorded stuff I've done in the past and some home demos I'm working on right now. If you have some time to waste, go to http://soundcloud.com/soundtrack-of-my-silence and check out a 3-song-demo I've recorded in December 2008.
If you listened some feedback would be appreciated but thank you anyway.

coming home.
01/15/11 at 07:38 AM by simplejack
Waiting at the bus stop for my last trip home
In my pocket a chance not to be alone
Iíve got so many things not certain
I feel so lucky some still remain
Seriously I need some sleep in my own bed
Even with lots of words left unsaid
So Iíll finally get to catch my breath
And have new found strength after rest

I SEE FAMILIAR PLACES SO I GUESS IíM BACK HOME
IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HERE AFTER ALL
I SEE FAMILIAR FACES TO TALK WITH ABOUT MY DAY
THEREíS NO PLACE LIKE HOME, IíM NOT ALONE

I missed so much everything about this place
In my mind I saved every trace
Together with the sundown I make goodbyes
To the life I choose for your eyes

Iíve seen life and Iíve seen death with anger and pain
I fell in love and Iíve seen my heart thrown away
Iíve seen in family and friends the best doctors
Tomorrow is a brand new day and it will be mine

by the river.
01/15/11 at 07:36 AM by simplejack
So far gone the clouds in the sky
The river bank is the perfect place
A peaceful silence and a quiet breeze
What else could I really need?

Out of the mess someone calls world
I run through the air coming from nature
The power of music, the beauty of life
Make my lungs breathe deeper than ever

Would you bet that I feel like I can fly?

AND I LOOK IN THE WATER
(ITíS ME THAT I SEE)
DRENCHED IN RAYS OF SUNLIGHT
(I CANíT BELIEVE)
I FOUND A HEAVEN ON THIS EARTH
ITíS A WONDERFUL DAY

Thinking about how much time has passed
Since I felt this way back in the day
Tears now smiles, mistakes now laughs
And those good memories I keep in my heart

Nothing can knock me down, Iím so happy now
Iím just a boy with a big smile on his face
Songs stolen by bad times I got them back
I still donít know what future holds for me
Good or bad, it will be a rollercoaster
I still have my dreams and I want to believe

lone wolf.
01/15/11 at 07:34 AM by simplejack
IíM FALLING DOWN AGAIN
IF THIS MEANS TO BE A MAN
I FEEL SO MUCH OLDER THAN YOU
MY BODY IS LETTING GO
MY MIND DOESNíT KNOW
I HAVE NOTHING TO HOLD ON TO

My eyes are desperate
My hands are trembling
Can I save this scene before itís too late?
Iím losing weight again
Let my hair grow as I stand
Watching this incomplete beard grow longer again

Maybe one day I will make it
Motivation lacks at all
The worst mistake I could ever make is
Wish a change and do nothing else
To make it happen

When I thought I was okay
Lied to myself during those days
I misspelled invisible with invincible
When I thought that I was the best
It was your fault if I was less
You knew from the start the problem was me

I could be so much more
But the fear of flying keep on bringing me down
In a world Iíve been sleeping
On a cloud Iíve been living and not looking down
And it hurts so hard when I fell to the ground
Bruises, wounds and blood
I wasted myself and the time Iíve always had
But at least Iím still alive

Now I feel your words you told me that morning
ďThereíll always be problems and difficulties, something that knocks you out
From time to time every step requires more and more effort
so do what you like, what makes you feel good
life will be hard but at least enjoyableĒ

Donít let this sad song be the soundtrack of my silence
Iíll mark the music in my head, the lyrics in my heart
To remind me why Iím here and where Iíve been
Ďcause what Iíve done makes who I am but not who Iíll be

ďIf you donít like who you are,
If you donít like the world around you,
If you wake up every morning feeling hopeless, scared and sad
You must know that itís never too late to stand up and change.
Youíve got to work hard and be positive
And one day youíll be a champĒ

after all.
12/28/10 at 07:49 AM by simplejack
I feel the tension in the air
Embarrassing silences and growing pressure
They want an answer I canít give right now
No one told me this life was easy
I never meant it that way
Iím sorry if Iím not what you expect
I let you down without thinking about it
I kept on going forward with steps done backwards
Does that even make sense to you?
You know, other than downfall?

ďDONíT THROW IT AWAY, THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR MIND, YOUR BODY AND HEART.Ē
ITíS NOT ENOUGH TO GO ON WITHOUT A REASON TO BELIEVE, I GIVE UP
BUT IíM ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL.

I feel the tension in the air
Embarrassing silences and growing pressure
Iíve got to show you that Iím not done yet
Iím scared about what future holds for me
I guess Iíll get it through

I canít stand promises and new yearís resolutions
Ďcause itís complicated to pretend that everything will be alright
Problems always find the time to knock at your door
I wonít bet about my scores but Iíll do my best to make them good
The more I hear you say you donít care
The more I know you're there

believe. part II.
12/28/10 at 07:47 AM by simplejack
Sitting by the river and I donít know why
While time passes by everyoneís the same
The lack of balance has become routine
Slowly watching grey lives fading to black
You donít care till you learn the hard way
We delegate our lives pretending our rights
Then you got to ask the licence for dreaming
Future left alone in empty consciences

WE GOTTA BELIEVE THAT A CHANGE IS POSSIBLE
LOOK OUT FOR THE UPSIDES AND FIGHT FOR YOUR DREAM
WE GOTTA BELIEVE
LETíS RAISE OUR HEADS AND OPEN OUR WINDOWS
ĎCAUSE WORLD WONíT CHANGE IF YOU LIVE ON YOUR OWN

Itís time to be brave and raise our voices
Indifference kills the anger of the innocents
Hope is for the young ones, hope is for fools
Who will fight for us, if not ourselves?

in the silence.
12/18/10 at 10:45 AM by simplejack
Everyone is looking for coherence
People who really think and do what they say
Everyone is looking for sincerity
But do you really want to know the truth?
We wear so many masks in life
for every time and place we live in
world's a stage I got a part to act
for any situation I got to live

IN THE SILENCE
I CAN SEE THE SCARS OF WHAT I'VE DONE IN THE PAST
SIGNS THAT MAKE ME WHO I AM
IN THE SILENCE
I CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF STANDING ON MY OWN
I CAN HEAR WHO I REALLY AM

Everything is ready for this show
Iím the actor, the writer, the director
And itís not my fault if audienceís gone
The audition process is a fucking joke

In the silence of the night
With the deafening sound of your thoughts
Can you still hear yourself?
In the silence of the night
When you look in the mirror
Do you like what you see?

my favourite radio.
12/18/10 at 10:44 AM by simplejack
Mixed tapes blasting off my car stereo
Windows down sunglasses winterís gone
Here comes the song I want to hear for so long
As a main theme of the soundtrack of my life
I want simple, effective, predictable songs
They are the ones that speak to me

I RUN THROUGH THE MELODIES OF MY HEART
TO FIND THE PERFECT SONG TO SHOUT OUT
I WILL SING IT LOUD AND OUT OF TUNE
I WONíT CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY
IíM HAPPY AND FREE

I havenít ever pretended to know the musicís history
Or be some hipster who fakes to know it all
Catchy doesnít mean good but radio still sells
My heart is my favourite radio
Itís not about hit singles and weeks on chart
But record players torn apart

When everythingís in transit, music will be there
Connect with my senses, my thoughts and my silences
So Iíll know exactly how to feel how to say

I'm ready.
12/11/10 at 01:09 AM by simplejack
Iím 20 years old
but Iím not grown at all
you can see it from the mistakes I make
the world is a mystery for me
and the way I used to be
choose the path for every step I take
no longer Iím looking back

AND NOW IíM READY TO BELIEVE,
TO REACH UP FOR THE BETTER THINGS THAT SEEM SO FAR AWAY
AND CLIMB THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN
THROUGH THE AIRWAVES IN A FRESH BREATH OF POWER OF WILL

I lit a match made of desire
to make you see a bursting fire
you can rest now or follow your chances
pick up your bags and letís go
I wonít stop and I wonít slow
Iíll break down forever my fences
No longer Iím giving up

I can find the strength to win my fights
I will carry on if youíre by my side

one.
12/11/10 at 01:08 AM by simplejack
Iím arrived at this point in my life
a little worker bee until now
I need a few seconds to rest my head
but when I wake up I donít know where I am
time is golden, itís all I ever had
much of it I wasted along the way
no time machine, no duct tapes, no soul sale
it wonít come back to delete my regrets
Iíll take what I can get

LIFE IS ONE
I DON'T THINK I'LL WASTE OTHER TIME
I'LL HOLD ON
I DON'T THINK I WILL GO BETTER
I'VE DONE MY BEST AND NOTHING CAN BRING ME DOWN

when you feel the weight of the world on your back
and nothing on earth is sold for free
while everything is unpredictable
why you pretend to settle thing for less?
itís just a mess

no broken hearts canít be healed
no broken homes canít be rebuilt
if youíre hurt, I know youíre scared
we all have up and downs but does it ruin our ride?
I gotta hope

LIFE IS ONE
I DON'T THINK I'LL WASTE OTHER TIME
I'LL HOLD ON
I DON'T THINK I WILL GO BETTER
I'VE DONE MY BEST AND NOTHING CAN BRING ME, NOTHING CAN BRING ME DOWN
IN MY BODY SO MUCH FRUSTRATION, CAN YOU HEAR MY SCREAM?

stop. take a breath. press play.
12/08/10 at 01:34 PM by simplejack
Right before the concert tension start to grow
I can't speak a concept
a lump down on my throat
expectations raising high
heart doesn't need to lie
swimming through the silence
I can hear the audience say:
"you're wasting your time, you throw it away
'cause we don't need another boy who wears his heart on a sleeve
but open your eyes and ask us to believe in you"

SING AT THE TOP OF OUR LUNGS
WE CAN DO NO WRONG
WE DON'T FEEL ANY SHAME
THIS IS JUST A GAME
WE ARE HERE TO PLAY

I don't have the courage
to keep my eyes out of my feet
sweat runs down with rage
'til the last song I'm average
please save a breath for the moment you'll come here
you'll need it for telling us something to write home about
good or bad you'll take it in your memories

I need to do it just for myself
the show must go on, I don't need help
my body finds a way to react
my voice is something I still have
with family and friends this concert never ends
I'll have the strength to hit every note right
I'll never stop to

SING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS
I CAN DO NO WRONG
I DON'T FEEL ANY SHAME
THIS IS JUST A GAME
I'M HERE TO PLAY
