the fall of the jungle king
on: September 21, 2021, 15:47:32
I've been working on the music for this a whole lot lately
I hope my labours comes to fruition. I'll put extra effort into this one, so it might take a little longer. It's an artistic lump of a song, after this Ill do a few pop songs.



The Fall Of The Jungle King


hunger when I see you
what's an animal to do?
reaching for perfection
with nothing but affection in my heart
fear aside, come step into my cage
where the air is dry but cooler in the shade

blind since my recapture
to does and does not matter
just because you're paranoid
doesn't mean that they're not out to getcha'
friends appear and will tell you of their dreams
and enemies, well, they're never what they seem

eclipse of the sun with the birds anticipating
fall of the one time mighty jungle king

the whole point of no return
was a landslide of earthly concern
'only time I knew my place
was when they rang my bell and then they ran away
close your eyes, lo' and behold the truth
and what you feel belongs to none but you

no complaints, I've no regrets
I've made my peace with what is left
and my pride it was no gift it
was a curse I will be glad to have lifted
the price I paid I choose now to remember
with a leap of faith and the courage to surrender

the fall of the once so mighty jungle king
the world still turns and the birds, they still sing

the fall of the one time mighty jungle king

It’s a compelling adventure @rightly

I especially like

“the price I paid I choose now to remember
with a leap of faith and the courage to surrender”

A strong image of inner conviction...

I wrote this in troubled times
Sobered n somewhat disenchanted this was one of three 

They were too difficult on acoustic guitar

I'm producing it these days
I've  done the others already, only one of them worked out. tbh I think this'll be the middle one that's only OK   lol

You truly have your own style @rightly
Lyricwise and songwise! I can already imagine so vaguely how you might perform the song.... I'm looking forward to it. ::Rachel::

For better or worse
Yes I have my own style
I'm old school but too nervously creative to get comfortable that way.

I've been producing this jungle king lately.
It's a lot of fun
I hope it works out. I don't make anything public I'm not mostly pleased with.

Thanks for your comments Mo

@rightly - looking forward hearing how it sounds. The Word Jungle immediately made me think of The Lion speels tonight.
But I guess your lyrics ask for a different vibe

Specially liked this lin:

The whole point of no return
was a landslide of earthly concern
