Song Lyrics - It's All Been Done (Are You Trendy?)

Updated on October 10, 2011

Your words have no meaning
Because it's all been said
Yet you are speaking
You are speaking

Your actions are nothing new
Because it's all been done
Yet you are acting
You are acting

You pretend to know the way
Even though we tried to show you
But you are not seeing
You are not seeing

Why must we wait for you

To come to know
While you are trending
You are trending

You read a book

From long ago
And now you are stealing
You are stealing

You turned and walked away
Even though we were revealing
Yet you are not listening
You are not listening

When you see light in the dark
You will come to know
That we weren’t lying
We weren’t lying

When you realize your mistake
You will wonder how it was
That we were so enlightening
So enlightening

You ask for one more chance
To amend your past
But time is unforgiving
It’s unforgiving

How long will it take
For you to know what to do
Because we are waiting
We are waiting

      @Eiddwen - You humble me. Thank you for that. I truly appreciate your praise.

      @WannaB Writer - Thank you for commenting. Certainly there are exceptions. No doubt and Jobs is a perfect example. But for me the idea of everything has been said or done is more related to the ego trip some people are on for something that they think they have done. It's more the mental approach to life. It can also lend itself to the idea that we are the same and shouldn't put ourselves above others. You have a heart. I have a heart. You love. I love. You hurt. I hurt. We are the essentially the same but at the same time we are unique in our own way and I welcome that too (variety is the spice to life?).

      But yes I've seen things in the night that are new to me and possibly has not been seen by anyone else.

      @Vocalcoach - Well I'm glad you liked it! I think it works best as a song. I'm tired of some of the hip hop lyrics that are solely about hedonism (not that there's anything wrong with that on a Saturday night!) but I wanted something that might make people think and remember about things in life. But it has to work as a song and not be chock full of big words....

      Take care

      You sound like James Bond in Goldfinger when he said, "My dear, some things just aren't done. Such as drinking Dom Pérignon above a temperature of 38° Fahrenheit. That's as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs."

      Sorry but I do love the Beatles..... guess we can't agree on everything....

      Ah-Ha!!...I get it now...You want to have it sound like one of those agonizingly repetitive songs by the Beatles, like Hey Jude and Tomorrow never knows...Right ?...Those songs drove me up a wall and out the door...BRRRR, may God grant that I may never have to suffer through a Beatles song again...Larry

      The theme is not new:), but you captured the mood of boredom with the repetition. It's true that man often does not offer much in the way of new discoveries, but there are some exceptions. Would you, for instance, say this captures how we feel about the work of Steve Jobs?

      I'm also remembered that with God, much is new. Every night I see a new and different sunset that's never been exactly the same before. On every cloudy day I look at a completely new sky picture, and it changes every hour.

      Well, I love this poem, and knowing that it is a song rates it even that much higher. Good rythymic phrasing and adaptable lyric. No complaints here! Voting a big thumbs up! vocalcoach

      @Majadez - I think the only reason reptition works is because each generation is actually experiencing it for the first time so for them it is new; it's just that the older generation has to sit back and watch them stake their claim to something that was sold long ago....

      @missolive - Thank you! It's me talking to a child or a new generation...

      @maven101 - Ok tough lover... actually I'm glad you said that because I meant for this to be a song and not so much a poem/prose. I have some music in mind for it and it's to be sung in an ethereal manner such as John Lennon might produce... it would be sung with a bit of a driving beat and a hypnotic vocal....

      Repetitio est mater studiorum...These words were writ across the top of my Latin class blackboard. It says repetition is the Mother of all learning...We repeat over and over again that what has gone before us, much like a downloaded C drive...

      Life is absurd, and death is its consequence...

      I enjoyed parts of this prose but became rather fed-up with the overuse of repetition...it became uninteresting after the first three stanzas...

      Voted up even tho the message, while philosophically interesting, was smothered with chaffy end tags...Larry

      There's nothing new here,

      it's all repetition...

      I'm beginning to think that there's nothing more to life,

      we're all living out history's rendition...

      ---

      Much enjoyed! :)

      I will take whatever advice you have on the picture as I wanted to honor a belief that I find to be true but not cause confusion or hurt to anyone. Should I leave the picture up?

      Yes you are very well understanding and I also do it but with a view, not to let the shine and beauty of your poem be dim, I had only suggested you. I appreciate your sensitivity and kind heart. Now I vote up your poem with full enthusiasm.

      Ok.... I can change it... I guess I thought the Hindu's believe everything has been said and done before. Then I put Lady Gaga's picture up as a contrast to a trendy person.... Am I not understanding?

      I appreciate you poem having unexpressed views explored a lot. But there is basic mistake in your hub while uploading the pictures. The first one is the goddess of Hindus of Indian culture which is the image of education and skill. I fear that it may hurt the sacred feelings of Hindus because it is not matched with any nooks and corners of your poem. After all, I give it an interesting.

      Great one - really like this. Interesting images of trying to pull the veil from someone's eyes were created as I read this.

      Thank you for sharing your work - keep it up
