New Music Friday (November 18, 2005)

I've got plenty of new bands to review so keep coming back each Friday for more. But today, as long promised, I'm featuring another "real" Cody jam from my band "The Cody Show". I even use piano and synthesized strings in this one. Click here to download it.

I will say that these are some of my favorite lyrics that I've ever written. Hope you enjoy.

Without Their Own Rose (The Cody Show) --
Lyrics:

The staleness of the plays you play,
Rang just to get in my head,
The redundant echo of your nymphical thoughts,
Came just get in my bed.


You went to get one or the other here,
And you came back with a bleeding nose.
I said both might be neither one,
Without their own rose.


And I have risen and there I sit,
Hung from your wall.
A bedless tramp who sells her body,
To nourish what she no longer owns at all.
Nourish she no longer owns.

So come on down if you feel very pretty,
Make a tonic for you and your wife.
But don’t you forget to regret,
What you meant to call your life.


But don’t you forget to regret
What you meant to go and get,
You wanted your needs and you needed your wants,
But did you ever place your bet?


It’s the life we choose.

I sleep alone, searching for me,
You know I saved myself all alone.
You should have come back without yourself,
Or you should have just stayed at home.


And I have risen and there I sit,
Hung from your wall.
A bedless tramp who sells her body,
To nourish what she no longer owns at all.

It’s the life we choose.
