22

OFFICAL HOMEPAGE FOR THE BAND 22

YOU ARE CREATING

 

FOR EVERY EVERY STEP THERE IS A STONE

FOR EVERY PRODUCT : A CRAFT YOU HONE

MUSIC IS NOT ABOUT THE WORDS AND TONES

 

YEAH WE PLAY IT

AND THEN YOU MAKE IT INTO MUSIC

WE RELY ON YOUR EARS TO HEAR

DISCOVER WHAT WE DID NOT KNOW WAS THERE

 

ALL YOUR EXPERIENCES

DERIVED FROM YOUR SENSES

 

EVERY LETTER IS AN EMPTY CONTAINER

AND EVERY NOTE :  A VESSEL YOU RIDE

THE VOICE YOU HEAR IS A VOICE INSIDE YOUR HEAD  

 

IT'S NOT A PICTURE · IT'S NOT A TEST

IT'S NOT A METAPHOR · AN ANALOGY LEST

YOU WANT IT TO BE

IT CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO BE

 

EVERYBODY'S FEELING LIKE

"OH MY · THAT'S MY SONG"

AND IT IS BECAUSE

YOU'RE HEARING YOURSELF BY MEANS OF US

THERE'S NO QUOTE UNQUOTE

YOU'RE CREATING THIS NOTE

 

ALL YOUR EXPERIENCES

DERIVED FROM YOUR SENSES

 

[ THE TOOL OF ART CAN ONLY TAKE YOU AS DEEP

AS THE ARTIST WHO MADE IT DARED TO REACH

WITHIN THEIR SELVES, THAT'S THE ONLY QUEST

YOU NEED WORRY ABOUT · FORGET THE REST ]

 

 

CHOOSE YOUR WORDS FOR WHAT THEY  CONVEY

AND NOT FOR  WHAT THEY MEAN OR SAY

YOU'RE USING THESE LINES

TO COME THROUGH TO YOU

 

 

 

EVERYBODY'S SAYING HE IS SINGING ABOUT ME

YOU'RE SINGING TO YOURSELF, YOU SEE

WHO MADE THE JOY

WHO MADE THE STRIFE

YOU’RE CREATING YOUR LIFE

OBVIOUSLY

I'M NOT SINGING. IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG

YOU'RE CREATING EVERY  SONG

TAKE CREDIT AND BOW

'CAUSE WE DO NOT

STAND UP AND RECLAIM

YOU CREATED THIS REFRAIN
