    Well, My name is Lord Scizzgoth (don't start laughing.. I am passing the Black Metal Phase of my Life... :p, I WILL come of age one day :) ), and i am a fan of anathema, tiamat and katatonia mostly, especially their early ages, but surely also following their nowadays endeavours.

    Well I have 3 bands, one called Frozen Glare (a strange mixture of atmospheric/doom/death/black and even proggressive) which are my main band, currently passing the "i wanna die doom" phase :p

    My other band is called My Fallen Fins (I write the music and lyrics for all of them) and is a melodic black metal band, with maybe some atmospheric parts. That's my "brutal" resort when I want to write "evil" so Frozen Glare (and the band following) do not get disturbed by uneeded violence :)

    Finally my 3rd band is called (and that's mostly where Katatonia related subject comes into place) Tonight's Poison, deeply inspired (it IS easy to see!) by Katatonia, and are a strange mixture of doom,alternative. Mostly depending on the lyrics, and secondly on the music, this is the softer of the bands i have.

    I am a keyboard player myself, but also know some guitar (but i let my guitarists do the guitar playing for me). All songs (or at least in their majority) are written by me (and more than usually on a piano) and so are the lyrics.

    I think that this would be a fine way for me to enter the forums since i am new here. Shall anyone of you is interested, i will post some lyrics from my bands, so i get opinions. Especially Tonigh't Poison will intrigue you i hope...

    hail.. :)

    First Tonight's Poison...

    1) The Vortex That Forgot Twice

    Grey pictures of the vortex that forgot to spin.
    Twice once more beggining for the first time.
    Paradox memories of a falling cosmos.
    Unreached distances of a nova past.
    Bewitched miracle of a descending star.
    A pitiful actor on his way to the Cross.

    2) Tonight's Poison

    Path closed, eyes melt with Sun.
    Ears shut wide, tears one with dust.
    Serenity a carpet to lie on.
    Poison a decision to stand for,
    and drink it slowly forever.
    Faded day coming down on my lips.
    Smoothly running on my veins.
    Spinning slowly it takes me away,
    this narcotic feeling of "why".
    Wrecked May,
    take the dust off my lips,
    and bury with it the sorrowful dead.

    3) The Girl, The Chair

    Sitting there, the girl with the chair.
    A Chariot of Death that fell in love with Life.
    Standing there, the chair with the girl.
    An Angel of Light that was bewitched by Night.
    Suffering pressure of the manlike burden.
    The overwhelming weight of stillness.
    The unfelt sense of waiting for something,
    that will never come.
    ...Waiting for something that will never come...

    7) The Ice On His Eyes

    Drinking silence further now.
    Swimming through layers of dirty light.
    Searching for a path in this forest of Black.
    A sparkling dream in silent vain.
    A man drowned in the tears of his light.
    Lost in a forest made of illusion.
    Ash and Dust on his hands.
    Melt ice on his eyes.
    Stained with fears forevermore.

    5) World

    A stupid canvas,
    with stupid shapes,
    and stupid colours,
    all with a stupid meaning:
    "You".

    8) Once Filled With Beautiful Tears

    Falling dusk under the same old Sun.
    Undirect choices wasted on unmeant meanings.
    Silence betrays my voice.
    Emtyness fills my eyes,
    once filled with beautiful tears.
    If there was a choice, would I then throw it away?

    13) Moonlight Serenade

    Dance in my serenade.
    Drink the moonlight deep.
    Feel the beauty of the silence.
    And then burn in the rage of abscence.

    18) Silk Skin Sick Sin Six Spin

    Oh already sixteen with...
    Silk skin, sick sin and six spin...

    3) So Far For An Angel

    He had these strange wings,
    He had this strange look,
    He had those strange clothes,
    He was an ordinary stranger.

    4) Paradox?

    A blue Sun glued with the red Sea.
    A purple water glued with the yellow Tree.
    A vibrant bride glued with the pale Me.
    Nothing strange here I guess.

    1) The Loss Of Sanity

    Who can bear a moment of noise?
    Who can fix a deeply broken soul?
    Who can stand a choice of press?
    Who can change a mind full of distress,
    once proud and sane?

    4) Slipping Away

    I holded you so tight.
    You were up there.
    I was on the brink to fall.
    I holded you so tight.
    But finger by finger, I was slipping away.
    I think I saw it in your eyes.
    This enigmatic stare like when something is unfair.
    You must have seen it in my eyes.
    This lost vision of a life slipping away.
    I was just slipping away.
    I was just slipping away.

    5) Weak

    I feel life in you.
    I feel pure in you.
    I feel real in you.
    I feel full in you.
    I feel warm in you.
    ..I can fool noone.
    I feel weak in you.
    But for a while, it was soothing to lie.

    6) ...

    There should be a title up there.
    But this is not much of a concern.
    We, the words down there, can't read so far.
    We just stay together, one by one.
    Until we are all read.
    There should be a title up there.
    But by the time you read this line,
    you must have already forgot the reason.

    1) The Countdown To Extinction

    Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four,
    Three, Two, One...
    ...Extinct Here...

    2) Beggining To Melt

    In the start it was hard,
    It then softened on the edges.
    Beggining to melt, and dropping on the floor.
    From shaped into amorphis larvae.
    Solid once it was, now melt to water.
    Sun is the only enemy.

    i think your lyrics are good, but i think they surely need more work...
    i mean, they are quite short...and the words are quite simple, and i can not find a good ryme in them... use more metaphors...don't go too straight...

    this is a lyric from my project "awaiting the rain"
    the song is called "drowned"

    i seek relief
    my mind plays tricks,
    this haunted self,
    forget my sins

    i drown, alone
    through darkness i fall
    to heal these wounds
    i never asked for

    my disease, it never leaves
    my curse, never ends

    would you listen to me?
    it's all i need!
    would you stay with me?
    please, don't leave...

    i wander, alone
    i have lost hope,
    pour a drink on me,
    cease this fuckin' pain

    my disease, it never leaves
    my curse, never ends

    He's got a point. The lyrics are a bit short. Not asking for an epic or anything, though, but sometimes they do better if they're longer, and give better descriptions of certain things, to stress whatever point they have.

    lol.. tonight's poison really have small "poems", plz don't ask for bigger, or i will post Frozen Glare lyrics which are relatively huge :)
    well i will,
    as about i music, i promise i will give you mp3s also, but just give me the time to make everything sound exactly as i want. i am a perfectionist (is that a word?) and all these bands are currently making their demo. sound is not exactly right. once everything it is as i want, you will listen first!

    now about WHY the lyrics are small in tonight's poison. first there is really NOT a ryme as you spotted, that's because it is a flow of thoughts, I do not want a ryme, or a second proccess. What came into my mind, that was the ending result. It is small because in that way I wanted to keep the interest in the lyrics, over the music. And finally about grammar, typos and lack of "words wealth". Well I live in greece, my english suck, and i only get to use them through the internet. i CAN speak english, but surely not well. So i hope my english betters with time....

    Well here I have a Frozen Glare one. I write all the lyrics. This is from our forthcoming album, Tragic Animation.

    My Only Summer-Frozen Glare
    Sun dropping on me,
    Skin turned violet.
    In an empty beach,
    A burning dream to reach.
    And Sun dropping on me,
    Still alone by the sea.
    Images that lose their shape,
    Blurred water in the lake.
    Screaming for my soul to take,
    My only Summer on Earth...
    ....it has been a lonely one.
    It has been a lonely one...

    The Abyss-Frozen Glare
    Six hundred same birds,
    Flying in sixty different patterns,
    Only six survived...

    Premature Tear-Frozen Glare
    It was not the right time, I know.
    I remember like it was yesterday.
    You held my hand and said that,
    "It's alright".
    I shaped your face in my hands,
    and noded back..
    You then pointed the heavens with
    your velvet finger stretched far.
    And in raging agony you said, "Look"
    "It's a shooting star!".
    I know it wasn't the right time,
    But I could help myself nomore.
    I started crying.
    Spilling with azure fear,
    Another premature tear.

    The Furthest Beyond-Frozen Glare
    Gazing out the universem
    For a moment I was lost.
    Tied my desires in a timid curse,
    and set on the journey of the holocaust.
    From the frozen palace I arrived,
    with just one question.
    Where is the velvet poison?
    And where is the furthest beyond?

    Creating Questions, Creating Answers?-Frozen Glare
    Time is standing still forever.
    My heart I cannot listen.
    I never though silence can be so slow.
    Answering to questions never made yet.
    He kept wondering "how" and "when".
    His world opened up, to swallow him.
    Swallowing him deeper, all "how's" turned to "when's"
    and all "when's" turned to "why's".
    The mirror he grasped and finally saw no reflection.
    Does life's end comes this way?
    Are we eternally meant to be torn?
    Torn the answers from our questions?
    Does every "why" bind us to a falling "if"?
    He then looked back for a while.
    His shadow standing still for just one more moment.
    I should have never left your side.
    No dreams ever come true.
    No pain ever is salvation.
    No questions ever have answers.
    No hellfire ever brings release.
    We are just binded to our own demise.
    I have seen it all but now I blind.
    Having waited for so long for some light,
    Can't you see my mind dying?
    Shrouded in ignorance, I just wait.
    For your coming.
    For your coming.
    But my how turned to when.
    My when turned to why.
    My why turned back to me.


    please please note, that i said frozen glare's lyrics are big whereas these song are quite small. well i selected those small, biggers will follow next time :)

    these are lyrics that i wrote for one of my band's songs

    Lost

    I stand in the darkness
    the rays of light intrude
    on my quiet brooding
    my bittersweet solitude

    blurred eyes cannot see
    (into the mirror)
    what has become of me?

    I'm lost without you
    light a path for me
    I'm drowning without you
    lift me up from the sea
    I'm drifting away
    dreaming broken dreams
    I wish you were here
    I'm nothing without you

    I let the smoke surround me
    give release to my pain
    tears of sorrow
    washed out in the rain

    blurred eyes cannot see
    (into the mirror)
    what has become of me?

    I'm lost without you
    light a path for me
    I'm drowning without you
    lift me up from the sea
    I'm drifting away
    dreaming broken dreams
    I wish you were here
    I'm nothing without you
