start a new topic cos no one is likely to come and answer this question when your title is completely different

Origins of Science
Ok hereís a quick note that may help you with ideas. I wrote this song when I was on a train and I was really into my music at that time, I always trying to think of a new song. Anyway, I kind of wrote this song to sayÖ Ďhey! Do you ever really question life? Or do you just take it for granted?í
Anyway, I wanted to use this really cool line too that Iíd read in a book somewhere. ĎYou canít teach a spider how to spin itís a webí basically meaning that some intelligence or skills we are born with and some are drilled into us. The original book was going on about how spiders instinctively know how to spin webs.
Anyway Iím ranting, make of that what you will. Hereís the lyrics.

How do I spend my time from here to there?
Travelling on trains with nothing to do but stare.
Looking through windows for inspiration,
Pass open fields, cities and stations.
The clouds are immense, they make me feel small.
On this Edinburgh train Iím no one at all.
Bridges are memories of one mans creation,
How he solved the puzzles by observation.
Now we pass under without any thought,
For the man who has made them is no one at all.
And you might wonder where weíre gonna go from here
Are we gonna meet our destination on time?
And youíve passed under all these bridges on your way,
Never even questioning the origins of science.
How do I know that Iím really here?
Is it something you teach me, teach me to fear?
You canít teach a spider how to spin its web
And the things that you taught me just messed up my head
Iíve just been waiting, waiting too long
For the answers to questions that wonít come along.
And you might wonder what is going on in my mind.
Did I even listen to the words that you said?
And youíve passed under all these bridges that Iíve built
Never even questioning the origins of science.
And how will you know if itís alright?
And how will you ever be satisfied?
Cos you have wandered many years on this earth
now its nearly time for your journey to end
And youíve passed under many bridges on your way
Never even questioning the origins of science.

voila! lyrics

all i can say is you newbies (ok im one too) want to do everythin straight away. Make a person??? that is a skilled task that takes these guys years to master. Did you not even read the tutorials on the sight or the manual?

just keep at it bruva it takes time

as i already said, i'll post it for you with full credit going to you. or failing that as i said.. 'dont be too honest in the name of art' or words to that effect. If Piccasso would have done everything he was told, would he have been the great artist he was? rule breaking is part of the game.

ok i dont know u dude but after reading Indian8or's comments i was inspired to post too. I think what he say's is quite true and that a positive mind can make a big difference. I know this becos i also ocassionaly suffer from a very negative mind which makes me believe everyone hates me. Sometimes i think i have no friends, then i remember only you have the power to change your mind. I am a buddhist and buddhism has taught me a lot about positive thinking, that doesnt mean im always positive, it just means i live with the negatives and dont let them take over my mind. 
It seems to me the only person who has expectations of yourself is you. Dont beat yourself up im sure you are a great person and dont expect too much of yourself too. Things take time and time takes things.

Hi everyone
i would just like to announce the guys over at animanon have agreed to use one of my songs as the basis for the new competition. The plan will be to compose a short 3 minute ani to go with it. you can hear the song on  mp3 tube   >>>> <<<<just follow the link.  Im thinking about posting the winning ani on youtube depending on what everyone else thinks about it. We could potentially get a good few viewers of our work i.e my music - your ani
I also wouldnt mind posting all of them on youtube myself but we'll have to see what everyone thinks. I m really excited about this its the first time anyone has done this to my music so its great !!  :D
