Going Through The Updates

Things have been getting written.   I’ve finished the first draft of a new group of lyrics. They’ll be refined over time, but the pieces that will be part of this grouping are now locked in at least. When it was being developed as something that would have smaller chunks released seasonally, I’d tentatively called … Read more

Well, you know that shit’s getting real when there’s a new pinned post on the main page.   I’m just checking in to let everyone know that the Fireteddy National Library has been updated! It’s a bit earlier than anticipated, but a bunch of Synesthesia era lyrics (opens in new tab) have been added to … Read more

I’m Alive-ish

Yes, I’m still alive in a very literal sense.   Full disclosure: I haven’t been using my brain energy very constructively. Besides spending a disturbing amount of time writing (and editing) my feedback for a Marvel Cinematic Universe podcast, I’ve done almost nothing since November. While originally thinking it was just laziness, I’m now pretty … Read more

Strange Progress

So there have been a few developments since my last post.   A couple of weeks ago, I came up with three separate lyric snippets. None of them have really been developed into a fully fleshed out thing I can add to a grouping, but they all show some promise. Working titles for the three … Read more

Back In The Black

How many variations can I make on the phrase “back in black?” I think we’ll soon find out!   Been working up a new idea with Black Squirrel over the past couple of days. In working on the lyrics earlier this week, I came up with a different verse melody that I’m now attempting to … Read more

Back In Black

After working on Stranger Days so much recently, I was happy to explore a new idea tonight.   Came up with a random couple of lines this evening. Upon hashing them out a bit in my head, I also tried Frankensteining them with Black Squirrel’s chorus and pre-choruses. For those who are unaware, Black Squirrel … Read more

Still Strange After All These Days

Another (strange) day, another approach on Stranger Days itself.   Decided to tackle Stranger Days while I found myself with some spare time tonight. Reconstructed the first part of the bridge so it would pack more of an emotional punch hopefully. It’s now the third official draft as a result though. I’ll let this sit … Read more

Marc’s Lyric Diary #1: Lost In Stranger Days

Today I decided to take another stab at Stranger Days.   At one point, these lyrics were tied to another thing called Our Day Will Come. When I originally conceived the idea of releasing smaller groups for each season, those lyrics tied into Stranger Days Have Come. Both had a similar pre-chorus, the same chorus … Read more

The Rules We Left Behind

This one is just a rough sketch I wrote tonight and isn’t in contention for the next group of lyrics.   Remember when we fought for the lives that we all thought were Created equal under God Now we use his name as we justify this pain that’s Inflicted while ignoring the cost   I’m … Read more
