Age

Ah, it’s the Age of a lot of Things.

These thoughts came to me on the subject.

The music and recording were done pretty much in one night.

Greg added a bass part and re-mixed the tune.

It’s Already Been Said

It’s Already Been Said–Paul Woodsong

I just can’t Comment on Things These Days.

Things Change so Fast, I got Nothing to Say.

Nothing to Say cause the Thing I dread,

Is the Simple Fear, It’s Already Been Said.

_______________________________________

No Matter what you say,…….It’s Already Been Said.

How You Say It,………………..It’s Already Been Said.

It Must Be Said,…………….For A Place in Your Head.

What You Say?………………..It’s Already Been Said!

…………….Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

_______________________________________

Already Been Said, by People Long Dead.

Many Things that should Shake Your Head.

But, Whoever Listens to What’s been Said?

It’s History Now, It’s Already Been Said.

One And Only

 

 

This song was recorded initially while in the classic rock band, THE BATZ.  We recorded a Cd with 13 songs, 6 of which were original songs, the other 5 songs were classic rock songs.  I had 2 original songs on the CD, this is one of them.

(More on The Batz later)

 

One And OnlyPaul Woodsong

Think about the Good Feelings

And of the Good Times.

What’s Mine is Yours,

And Yours is Mine.

And How I love You, so Preciously

You Mean more to me, than the Sky and Sea.

So Hold me very closely.

I will be yours until Eternity.

——————————————————————————————-

Alone Together with You.

You’re so Special,

You’re what I chose to do with my Life.

I Want to, Always Spend it with You.

You are my Only One.

My One And Only is You.

——————————————————————————————-


Tell me now that we’re Bound Together.

Will you love me all the Time,

Always be mine, Forever?

Will you always be true?

Help me through my Blue Weather!

Live our Lives for the Future,

The Future couldn’t be Better!

Better Baby!

(Repeat Chorus)

A Place For Me

This Song was originally written in 1959 by my Mother, with a different musical score, composed on an organ.  In 1975 I took the lyrics and composed a completely different song, written on an acoustic guitar.  I finally recorded this version of the tune for my “Eye of the Pyramid” Cd which I did in 2006?  I re-mixed it, and that re-mix is what you hear.

A Place For Me-(Woodsong/Baker)

They Tell Me, I’m a New Born Babe.

They say the World Didn’t Stop, When I was Made.

They say There are Too many of Me.

But, I Ask you Now, How can that Be?

When the Heart of Time, Beats in my Heart.

And our Ancestor’ Blood, Is In My Veins.

I am Their Tomorrow, I am their Part.

Of the Whole Wide World, Their Only Gain.

____________________________________________________________________

Oh, There Must Be A Place For Me!

In This Wide World, Can’t You See!?

That I’m Alive, and I am Real.

I Can Think, and I Can Feel.

____________________________________________________________________

I’ve Got A Brain, I’ve Got a Heart.

From other Creature’s, I’m set Apart.

So, the Boy I am, will Become A Man.

And To the World, A Gift I’ll Give.

Of My Own Son, And He’ll Take My Place.

In the Human Race, and My Life Will Be Done.

(Repeat Chorus)

So, Don’t You See, That There Will Be?

In This Wide World, A Place For Me.

A New Born Babe, That Was Made.

In His Own Image, I Was Made.

(Repeat Chorus)

Hours In Our Life

This song is on the ‘Something Foul’ website.  The main ‘riff’ is from an instrumental that my band at the time used to jam on.  (Band’s name was “Helios”.  Out of Kansas City, Mo.  1972).  My writing partner, Greg Hafner, encouraged me to put words to the riff and make a real song out of it, so here “it” is.  I played the guitars, sang the vocals, Gregg added bass, & friend, Steve Michaelson, graciously added keyboards, drums, and did the final mix.

The Hours in our Life(Paul Woodsong-Woodner/Hafsong)

Dragon and Serpent, the Devil and Hell,

Objects of Blame, no one can Tell.

Encourage Delusions, Control the Flocks.

Hide behind doors, with unopened Locks.

Its all just Thought-forms, Inside our Head.

No matter the reason, which way we are Led.

We follow blindly, like lemmings to the sea.

Theres none so blind, as those that cannot see.

                     The Hours in our Life.

                    Like Centuries of Time.

                  The Twisting of the Knife.

                 To Squeeze a Simple Dime?

Beings in the Saddle, ride mankind.

Others make sure theyre wined and dined.

Most of us just trying, to get along.

Try to figure out, where we belong.

One thing is certain, theres no turning back.

Once its decided, to stage an attack.

The result will be, anyones guess.

A Wise Man, would stay out of the mess.

REPEAT CHORUS–2 Bar Lead

What are we doing to each other?

Why do we hurt our Earth Mother?

When was the death of Common Sense?

What makes a good President?

Still Waiting, Waiting to see. Just what the Future will be.

What has become of, those boys and girls?

They were enlightened, to save the world.

But, Wall Street, and Main Street, are two different things.

One wears Gold, the other, dimestore rings.

Still Waiting, Waiting to see. Just what the Future will be.

/:/Instrumental Ending———-Main Lick/:/

Knee Deep In The Swamp of the Nebulous

This song is also on the ‘Something Foul’ website.  The lyrics are gibberish.  The music inspiration is from a song from 1965 by Ronald Thielman, entitled: Chelsea Suite.  My High School Concert Band recorded the song in 1968.  (I played Coronet on the tune.)  I re-worked parts of it and came up with the music for this song.  The lyrics happened by chance.  I played/recorded all the instruments, did the final mix, etc…  Paul Woodsong.

Knee Deep in the swamp of the nebulous- (Paul Woodsong)

Mostly Cloudy, & patchy fog.

Chance of rain, all day long.

Into the night, it will be.

Mainly raining. Time for tea.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Time for whatever, life requires.

Try to fulfill, Our mind’s desire.

our body’s ocean, of human need.

A secret potion, say the creed:

Knee Deep, in the swamp, of the nebulous.

every step taken, will be dangerous.

Watch, as you gaze, upon the precipice.

life, is on the line”, make your exodus.

life is illusive, what’s to gain?

What is lost, causes pain.

What’s needed, try to find.

Escape from, A shattered mind.

way back where, we came from.

follow the path, of bread crumbs.

plumb/rum-scum/slum-swim/some.

back home, the old humdrum.

repeat Chorus

Knee Deep, in the swamp of the nebulous

Eye of the Pyramid

Okay, this is a totally weird “song”.  Never modulates.  Inspired from various readings over time.  Some of the sources were:                                 A Faust Play by Goethe, entitled, “The Devil”.                                                   A book, “The Secret Doctrine”,  by Helena Blavatsky.                                Also, a book by Anthony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment, (The Order of Skull & Bones)

Eye of the Pyramid-Paul Woodsong

The Eye of the Pyramid, is What You Must Fear!

In All that is Close, In All that is Near.

What Remains Present, is What Remains Clear.

The Eye of the Pyramid is What You Must Fear!

A Symbol Hides A Secret. Which Veils Mysterious Forces.

The Energy Released, Can Have A Potent Effect.

The World You Think Exist, Does Not Exist.

It Is Completely Corrupt, Beyond Our Wildest Dreams.

A Black Cauldron of Dirty Secrets.

The World is A Contest For Our Souls.

The Spirit of All Lies. Works of Dazzling Magic Blind You.

Then Absolutely Mine, I’ll Have and Bind You!

I AM, THAT I AM! AS ABOVE, SO BELOW!

PERPETUAL WAR, FOR PERPETUAL PEACE.

AMIDST THE FIRE, MYSTERY OF INIQUITY. MYSTERY OF INIQUITY!

The Serpent Bites His Own Tail.

The OROBOROS SERPENT! LIE OF THE SERPENT!

The Return of Unity. The Trinity of Unity.

The Eye of the Pyramid, Is What You Must Fear!

The Future’s Undone!

Don’t think we’ll ever See, Eye to Eye, with Anyone.

Because, the Past Proceeds.

The Past, Remains Present.

What Has Been, Decides on What Is.

Our Will to Live, is Prisoner.

Because We Have No Power, Over Time.

The Past Remains Present.

Life is a Tribute, to Death.

The Past, Continues, To Claim the Future.

All of us Live, the Universal Fate of Mankind.

The Past Defines, The Present.

Because, Man Hasn’t Mastered His Own History.

Because Man Hasn’t Mastered His Own History.

————————————————————————————-

 

 

Let Us Be

Let Us Be, the 2nd song on my Eye of the Pyramid Recording, is another weird attempt to do something different.  I always wanted to add Tuba, and other horn parts, to give it a Circus music type of sound.

Let Us Be-Paul Woodsong

There’s a Shadow Hanging Over Our Humanity,

An Element Among Us, That Won’t Let Us Be.

A Brotherhood of Death, A Fraternity.

Welcome to the World Corporatocracy.

The Wind Cuts a Cold Knife’s Edge.

Imagine for Yourselves, Another Ice Age.

When we Look at all that we’ve done.

So much Pain, and Reckless Abandon.

Let the Truth be Known, the Facts Laid Bare.

The Liars and the Thieves, It’s a Nightmare!

Blood for Oil, Mother’s Despair.

While our Future, Hangs in the Air.

The Order, Bones, Charged Operation.

Controlling & Consuming Populations.

Managed Conflict, Synthesis of One.

A New World Order, Eye of the Sun.

The Institute of Revolution.

The People’s Way of Retribution.

For the Pain & Misery.

The Robbing of the Treasury.

Regardless of the Circumstance.

We’d Like to take the Last Dance.

Before the Last, Will be Past.

Before we know it, We Will Be the Last.

To be the Last, To be, Not to Be.

Such a Contrast, of the First Class.

We’re Outrageous, We’re Contagious.

The Leaders Lied, Look What They’ve Done!

Led us to War, with a Sovereign Nation.

Nobody Wins, It’s a Losing Situation.

Just for the Sake, of Their Bloody Salvation!

Creating Hate, Fear, & Social Regulation.

Changing the Face of the Human Equation.

Making it Hard, to have a Normal Relation.

Can’t We Find A Different Path?

—————————————————————————–

MODERN ARMS-

 

This song was also written many years ago & part of the Eye of the Pyramid Cd.

MODERN ARMS-(Paul Woodsong)

Modern Arms, with Ancient Heads,

Fashioned Legs, Fighting Death.

Their War is Business. It Makes Them Money.

It’s what we’re Geared For, with Milk & Honey.

__________________________________________________________

War isn’t War, it’s Extinction.

It’s the Illuminati, fighting Salvation.

It’s the One Percent, Playing with their Power.

Our Hopes & Dreams, Depend on their Desire.

_________________________________________________________

Their Strength & Power, “Acts & Applies”,

The Forces of Energy, To Live & Die.

Why not, Unite! Build! & Create.

A Future Strong, Which We Can All Relate.

___________________________________________________________

War isn’t War, it’s Extinction.

It’s the Corporatocracy’, fighting Salvation.

It’s the One Percent, Playing with their Power.

Our Hopes & Dreams, Depend on their Desire.

LIFETIME DREAM

This song was also written many years ago & is on the Eye of the Pyramid Cd.

Lifetime Dream-Paul Woodsong

In these troubled Times, Having trouble, nursing my rhymes.

I’m getting tired of wasting, All my precious Time.

Thinking about the Future, And what’s installed for Me.

Am I to live my life, a struggle for sanity?

Is this my Lifetime Dream? My Dream Reality.

(GUITAR SOLO)

I Wish I could look at myself, Through someone else’s eyes.

I wish I could exist in this world, Free From Freedom’s Lies.

People expect so much, And get so little in Return.

The way some get treated, It Makes Me Really Burn, Burn.

____________________________________________________________________

Is this their Lifetime Dream? Their Dream Reality.

(GUITAR SOLO)

Unsatisfied at what’s Happening? Twist your Head the other way.

Leave it to someone else, And It’ll come back to you some day.

Sometimes we fall into a role, We’re not accustomed to other goals.

A Variation on A Theme, 

Of What You Thought, Was Your Lifetime Dream.
