about

Recorded as a result of a tiny contest I held, it's made in the hopes of being "a catchy song" that "gives confidence to the listeners to overcome difficulties in their lives," as said by the contest winner, mspidernight. It's a song about skating. But not really. Talk to me about it if you want a line-by-line interp.

Skye Hawaii

Skye frolics through and delves into in ev'ry metaphorical acre of the expansive, fruitful meadow of the creative arts. He's an amateur author, actor, artist, comedian, composer, film-maker, musician, playwright, singer-songwriter, and just plain ol' writer. He also likes drumming out rhythms on his thighs.

He doesn't really know what he's doing, but, needless to say, he's doing a lot of it.

Track Name: Scissors for Your Feet
They’re not on the ice, so they’re wearing the wrong shoes.
And ev’ry girl’s got my ex-girlfriend’s white jacket.
Please pack up the jackets and take off the shoes.
And never pay to lose--

--A limb (Chill out.)
Lose control. (I’m fine.)
Lose equilibrium. (I doubt…)
Lose my mind. (… you’re mine. You’re mine.)

I’m getting left behind.

Slice through ice.
Spin through Junes.
You’re running with scissors for your feet.

Same slip twice.
Stings bruised wounds.
My socks are safe like a substitute security sheet.

The soundtrack sucks and my sneaker shoes
Cling to the edge of my teetering seat.
I sorta relied on some smile on my side,
So I guess I must’ve misused

My heart (Chill out.)
In my hand (It’s the end.)
In arc… (I doubt…)
… tic pigpens. (… you’re my friend.)

I guess it all depends.

Slice through ice on my
Shock-wave heart.
You’re running with scissors for your feet.

My advice?
Stop, just start.
The sweetest spray might show itself in the sleet.

We’re all infants on short sharp stilts.
Starting on stunts
We hope to only do once.
Promenade
On skating bláde.
Oh, wait, that doesn’t sound right.
These skating fates don’t mean to bite
But we all slip from the extra height.

Slice through ice.
Set the pace.
You’re running with scissors for your feet.

It’s not nice
In last place
But hey, I’ll see your face…

Before the Mace.

*spritz* OW!

... You thought I wasn't paying attention.
You thought I'd leave IN the *spritz* even though it's obviously not there.
Because this is a vocal track.
Really now, you should check my piano track lyrics on We Do Not Belong Together, if you thought that for even one moment I would overlook that de-tail.
