Video: Vante Left Them Human

Estimated read time (minus contemplative pauses): 2 min.

This is “Vante Left Them Human”. It appears as a piano-driven number on my album Neon and Gold, and here I’ve arranged it for classical guitar and violin for myself and Emanuel to play (thanks Emanuel!).  And thanks to Vante (the vampire who inspired this song). This is the first of many videos I plan on posting. Enjoy :)

LYRICS:
god only knows what you have done
to become who and what you are
today is a new day, where will you go?
will you leave us here to wonder
who you are and what you know?
all you know, or is all this just for show?
god only knows what you have seen
to become who and what you seem
today is a new day, where will you go?
won’t you stay here teach us
how to forget everything we know?
all we know, even if its just for show
is it life, is it time
is it everything combined?
god only knows what well become
now that your time
here’s done and gone
today is a new day, seen it before
when our skin is still skin
and our times running thin
yes weve seen it all happen before
all before, before you and all your lords
is it light, is it night is it
all these things combined?
god only knows what we will do
now that your time
here’s done and through
today is a new day, seen it before
still our skin is still skin
and our times running thin
yes weve seen it all happen before
all before, before you and all your lore
