Oakvale: Release the Crack-en

Updated on March 3, 2012

This was actually one of the few songs that wasn't written by me and the only song, lyrically, to be written by our first drummer (we're currently looking for one- circa 2011) The lyrics mean nothing special, they can be interpreted however you want. The lyrics were sent to me as a text while my drummer was on the toilet. These were not my original lyrics, I loved the ones I had originally but a dispute between myself and the nearsightedness of my guitarist over what they meant lead for him to choose the lyrics our drummer wrote in jest. Like a lot of things in life, I just had to get over it. I had to get over the fact that my original lyrics weren't chosen, I do however, still have them and every time I hear this song, I think of my words.

(1st Verse)
A malevolent creation
Forged from flesh and fire
Bringing internal frustration
As the pressure builds higher

Can't you feel their eyes
They are watching me
Can't you hear their cries
Of bloody agony

(2nd Verse)
Struggling to be unchained
While promising turmoil
When he is unrestrained
The waters will boil

Can't you feel their eyes
They are watching me
Can't you hear their cries
Of bloody agony

Swatting at the flies
They are bugging me
Can't you hear my cries
Of bloody agony


The original title of this piece was called "Life Sentence" and the lyrics I wrote I thought were much more appropriate. It was three against one though so I couldn't really put up too much of an issue. Although I did make my drummer sing it. I wasn't going to. My own little dash of spite. I'm not generally so immature I was just really unhappy cause I put a lot of work into the previous lyrics to have them so systematically crushed because one person didn't understand what they meant. Oh well. Life goes on. Anyway, it's a good song regardless, the music more than makes up for the lack of quality lyrically.
