NOT A SECOND TIME
How you be? So good to have you here. Welcome to Day Nine!
Some phrases are so obvious as to be seemingly etched in the very stone of existence.
“Everybody plays the fool sometimes” is one that comes to mind.
Another one is “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Yet another is “We’re not going to take it anymore.” (There are others, but we’ll keep it clean here).
Why did we choose those three? Would you believe they were chosen very deliberately? (Really guys?) There’s a kind of flow to them when read in that specific order. It’s the sequence of standing up for one’s self after laying down for so long.
IT’S ALL IN THE FLAVOR
Sweetness, zest, seasoning, texture, color … whatever you call it, we love adding those little accents of zing to our songs. We dig mixing in a little extra lilt. Some are very subtle, others a bit more conspicuous – but always very treasonous:
THE MUSIC (SONG 9) – “ALL OVER ME”
“This game is done. It’s done. All over. See, it’s so overdone…“
Written by Andrew Roman and Robert Steel
Produced by Elm Treason
Recorded, Mixed and Mastered at Realm Tones Music
Today’s voice, much like the previously shared “TWELVE O’CLOCK RUNNING,” is ultimately about standing one’s ground. (Subject matter that never fails, right?). But this time, it isn’t against an evil entity or a band of roaming marauders looking for trouble. Rather, it’s about confronting one’s self, mustering the strength to not be someone’s stepping stone any longer. Check this :
“ALL OVER ME”
(Listen now. Lay your ears on this!)
Well the snake could feign a dove and shake a faithful love, and they play that play so well.
Betrayal is a deep abyss that’s steeped in emptiness, and I confess that, yes I fell.
But this game is done. This game is done. It’s done. All over. See, it’s so overdone.
But I was the one. I was the one. The one who let you rock and roll all over me.
Well the con could play the part and don a Sunday heart. Don’t they line those lines up so fast?
That trick Is quite a fitting tool to spite unwitting fools, but this ruse will be your last.
‘Cause this game is done. This game is done. It’s done. All over. See, it’s so overdone.
But you’re not the one. You’re not the one. The one who’s gonna rock and roll all over me.
It’s all over now. It’s all over now. Don’t pretend to me again. It’s the end.
It’s all over now. It’s all over now. It’s all over now.
