Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Those Tuscan sunsets Champagne in gay Paris Your perfect lovers And your perfect homes Sometimes it leaves me Feeling so alone I know all they ever show me Is the highlight reel All the filters and the lighting Make it look so real We’re all in the same position Telling lies of omission We’ve all got a story to tell If it’s awkward, painful or a bore Leave it on the cutting room floor We’ve all got a product to sell (Guitar solo) (Bridge repeat) I know all they ever show me Is the highlight reel All the filters and the lighting Make it look so real We’re all in the same position Telling lies of omission We’ve all got a story to tell If it’s awkward, painful or a bore Leave it on the cutting room floor We’ve all got a product to sell

All These Lies Like a pair of jeans so worn and torn that only patches show Everything I say’s a cover for something said before The problem with the truth is that nobody cares enough To check the facts so lately I’ve been making my facts up But all these lies keep weighing me down I’m breaking my back carrying around All the wingless birds I tried to force to fly One of these days or one of these nights I swear I’ll finally put in flight The truth that’s buried somewhere deep inside All these lies The truth is only good as long as it can be uncovered But a lie can die, be dead, and gone and I’ll just find another The problem with the truth is that there’s only just the one I have told a million lies and only just begun And I’ve only just begun to have fun But all these lies are weighing me down I’m breaking my back carrying around All the wingless birds I tried to force to fly One of these days or one of these nights I swear I’ll finally put in flight The truth that’s buried somewhere deep inside All these lies All these lies All these lies All these lies

Midnight Snow I look behind the door I stumble to the floor And ripped the brand new shirt I wore Opened the window gazed at midnight snow Think about what I saw Poured myself a drink I thought of calling my shrink Changed my mind and let it go I look behind the door I stumble to the floor And ripped the brand new shirt I wore I looked behind the wall and stumbled through the door And thought about what I just saw Poured myself a drink I thought of calling my shrink Changed my mind and let it go I look behind the door I stumble to the floor And ripped the brand new shirt I wore

All alone no words left to say Emptiness, no reason to try Broken pieces, shallow graves Feels so bad , I must testify Hey - there’s a truth left for telling Hey - there’s a lot on the line Ride the lightning , take u under  Paint by Numbers, paint by Numbers All alone no words left to say Emptiness, no reason to try Broken pieces, shallow graves Feels so bad , I must testify Hey - there’s a truth left for telling Hey - there’s a lot on the line Ride the lightning , thrills take u under  Paint by Numbers, paint by Numbers

Weaving strands I’ve been spinning In the beginning Blood on my hands Lying, In time of dying Why are you crying Cross the expanse Drowning Lost in my doubting Pain in my slouching The spin never ends Threading Blessed forgetting It’s so upsetting Laid my best plans Laid my best plans

I hesitate to even include these, as they're 100% placeholder lyrics, but ... If there’s a place you go An afterglow I don’t wanna keep you waiting We used to climb that hill We drank our fill Now it’s only suffocating I know you really wanna make it blue I know you really wanna shake what chased you I feel the presence of a deeper kind of pain I still remember when you held me close I still remember when the darkness chose you I swear I loved you til the thunder chased the rain Sometimes the hawk chase crow The prey deals blows Everybody finds their moment But you don’t seem to care It’s so unfair How you lost your best opponent I know you really wanna make it blue I know you really wanna shake what chased you I feel the presence of a deeper kind of pain I still remember when you held me close I still remember when the darkness chose you I swear I loved you til the thunder chased the rain Oh, how the river used to run How the gain became the gun could you ever change your mind Oh, how I wanted you to stay When the green became the grey What did you hope to find?

about

This week, the assignment comes from Sir Luke, who intends to provide a little balance to the Force:

"After the minimalist harmonic challenge of writing a three chord song, let's balance it out with a maximalist melodic challenge: use all twelve notes at least once in your vocal melody."
