the roaring silence [Jun. 24th, 2006|11:27 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
my heart is as cold as the wind through the window
my thoughts are a dark as this moonless night
i wish it would rain so i could hear something
to drown out the quiet that roars through my life

the paper i write on is dappled by teardrops
it gets hard to read when the ink hits the wet
blinded by fortunes i thought that i wanted
i missed out on what i needed to get

this place where i sit seems cursed and forsaken
and nobody else dares to come inside
so no one can hear the sound my hearts making
between every beat is a silent cry

hang on tonight [Jun. 7th, 2006|10:12 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
fly on the wings on a dream you lived with
all of your dark days
fade away
leave them behind

take a drink of the cool clear water
then be on your way
on the way
to meet tomorrow

(chorus)
hang on tonight because there's another day on the way
another day...
better than the ones you've seen before that fade
hang on tonight because there's a better plan at your command
another day closer
to when you understand

hold on to something free and easy
let the pain subside
let it go
leave it behind

take a chance on a friend worth knowing
and you just might find
another soul
another time

(chorus)
hang on tonight because there's another day on the way
another day...
better than the ones you've seen before that fade
hang on tonight because there's a better plan at your command
another day closer
to when you understand

(bridge)
there ain't no way to know where your going
even with the best laid plans
changes come but you just might find
something better in your hand

(chorus)
hang on tonight because there's another day on the way
another day...
better than the ones you've seen before that fade
hang on tonight because there's another plan at your command
another day closer
to when you understand

so last saturday morning i had a dream, and when i woke up i had a song and lyrics that i had never played and never sung. it was real crazy.

it's nothing to write home about, but i had a fun time writing it and arranging the whole thing. i recorded everything on my laptop using sound forge and n-track. all of the mixing was done in n-track as well as all but one of the track recordings, but i did a ton of editing and processing of most of the tracks in sound forge.

i did all of the recording, editing, mixing, etc between saturday morning around 11am and sunday night.

it's called day dream, and if you want to you can listen here: http://www.myspace.com/zachsycks

My band's got a song up on myspace that I sing/wrote lyrics for, and it's definately ADD influenced(lyrics are posted on the site), as are our yet-to-be-recorded songs, so keep watching.

i dream [May. 13th, 2006|01:31 am]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
If i'm living today
and it don't seem magical
just getting along
but i don't know where to go
there is something out there
though it may seem out of reach
when i have those kind of days
that's when i dream

(chorus)
that's when i dream of a better way
so much better than it is today
i dream of a time to come
too far away to see
if everything is going wrong
and i don't know what to be
i take a trip to my imagination
and i dream

if i'm wasting away
and i don't have far to fall
just hanging on
when the ebb outweighs the flow
there's still something out there
though it may seem out of reach
when i have those kind of days
that's when i dream

(chorus)
that's when i dream of a better way
so much better than it is today
i dream of a time to come
too far away to see
if everything is going wrong
and i don't know what to be
i take a trip to my imagination
and i dream

(bridge)
i don't know about tomorrow
but i can always change my plans
my world is there for me to catch
because i understand

(chorus)
i can dream of a better way
so much better than it is today
i dream of a time to come
too far away to see
if everything is going wrong
and i don't know what to be
i take a trip to my imagination
and i dream

bad love [Apr. 6th, 2006|02:51 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
something i couldn't say to you
still you wanted to know
i'd given all i could give to you
but you wanted more
i was feeling the pressure
of a thing gone wrong
now all that is left of it
is a lonely song

i'm talkin' 'bout bad love
'talkin' 'bout the shoe about to fall
talkin' bout bad love
now you've got my back against the wall

something started that couldn't be
but we ran with the flow
i knew that i could get kicked by you
but i couldn't say no
i was feeling the pressure
of a thing gone wrong
now all that is left of it
is a lonely song

i'm talkin' 'bout bad love
'talkin' 'bout the shoe about to fall
'talkin' 'bout bad love
now you've got my back against the wall

I've realized that the real plague of distraction caused by ADD is usually internal, not external. In other words, we're usually distracted by internal thoughts, not external things like bright colors or shiny objects or however it is they think we amuse ourselves. I realized this in English today when the teacher told us about the possibility of doing an independent project in senior year, and I couldn't stop thinking about doing an independent project on Jack Kerouac or maybe Steinbeck. It's something that's taken so long for me to connect. for the past 3 years, when I've walked around in a country field or a city street or a school hallway, I've felt like I'm walking around in my own mind; I feel almost like I'm exploring the insides of my skull, not the outside world. And now I've found that this is the reason why I stop paying attention when someone is talking, in the same way I'd stop listening to the constant drone of thoughts in my mind, regarding or disregarding them as if they're just voices in my head. Does that make any sense to you?

[mood |better now]

my mind is just racing,
my mood is just unpredictable,
I am trying to stop and collect myself
but I just keep driving

anxiety is climbing
with each minute that passes by
I am holding the leash
but it is dragging me along

do I put on a helmet
and go for the ride,
unknowing where it will lead to
or what the duration it could be

Or do I try
to stop this momentum
that is building up inside
even if it is mutated to an unstoppable tide

I am writing this now,
to diffuse
and unconfuse.
to let it all out
with no unexcusable bouts,
to put it all here
within this sphere
of words and rhyme
where they will be locked in time
no longer inside
where they control, hurt, and hide
I need it to stop
before my sanity pops

yes this has helped
I feel like my feet are on the ground
I can stop and hear the sounds
of my mind slowing down

I do not like what i feel
when I feel
like I have lost all control
and the momentum begins to roll

I do what I can
with or without a plan
to take away the flight
and make my face bright
by taking away that frown
and putting it upside down,

to really be here a while
truely holding a smile.................

that music [Feb. 18th, 2006|09:40 pm]

[mood |creativecreative]

And then it happened - that music.

My eyes close in sweet surrender. All distractions evaporate as I melt into myself. It's just me, the space, and that music.

The beating in my chest slows to a pace I recognize as my own.

Breathe. Again, more deeply.

Release

I have to move forward, forget what is lost
The more I live the past, the more it will cost
Living today and tomorrow, The future is where I will see,
That through total release, is where I will find me.




Still There

moving forward, not looking back,
But I can feel you still there.

Not in my focus, nor my plan of attack,
But I can feel you still there.

Going my direction, won't jump that track,
But I can feel you still there.

Do actions for me, I will not crack,
But I can feel you still there.

No longer in my dreams, when I hit the sack,
But I can feel you still there.

Stronger I get, I will not slack,
But I can feel you still there.

No more flooded thoughts, when looking at one of your knick-knacks
But I can feel you still there.

My heart is warm, not cold and black,
But I can feel you still there.

I may not be presently with you , in physical-emotional-visual, but there will always be a part of you that will forever be within me. Something that I will never take for granted, or desire to give back.
