Recall to Life

This post was written in 1 minutes.
Much like everything I seem to be writing lately, this one is a bit vauge, but still does manage to display a cohesive theme. I attribute much of the inpiration for these lyrics to Poe's "The Tell Tale Heart." If you look closely, you will discover several references to it, as I utilized that story as a basis for illustrating my point. The underlying theme is simply the fact that "Your sins will find you out" and that despite what you do, there is no hiding from yourself and in the end your guilt will find you. It is open to other interpretations as well.

Hide it well
Insanity does not bear such fruit
Bury it deep
They'll never find you

Inhale success
So viscously sweet
Let us one and all
Praise the genius deed

An evil eye, never lies
Oh how you try, how you try
But I can see, all the way through
Remember me, you don’t, do you

Recall to life the words
Beware, lest it seek you out
A distant rhythm
A clamor in the ear
Careful now, close your mouth

An evil eye never lies
Oh how you try, how you try
But I can see, all the way through
Remember me, you don't, do you


Revel in drunken pride
Soothe your hideous heart
I'll take your demon eyes
I'll make the truth depart
Test your luck, board them shut
Still, I will rip them apart

I will rip them apart

An evil eye never lies
Oh how you try, how you try

You shall yet be blind
At least then you will see
Tear up the planks
Dissemble no more
You will remember me

A bit dark, but I like it. I like how you repeat one stanza, almost makes it sound like a song. Good stuff :)

There was an obvious connection to Poe's work, which has never been a real favorite with me, but I loved your poem. It was interestingly written and well thought out. :)
