if all you're good for

By Ramsie Shick / Category Surreal

if all you're good for
is endless
.
staring into
places which escape your
gaze
hello i'm nothing new
just like You
:.
if all has been
re-written
re-constructed into
.
better re-adjusted times
you
..
hey there
hello
i'm swimming out here
too
.
floating in the darkness
minus
you
..
this new freedom
this new necklace
,
moving forward in line
not a bow
where did we have your face
lace
is missing mine
but mines forgotten your name
so
..
lets forget the ones that wear our shame
let's move on……..
oh let's move on
:.
if all your good for hass been left on
then let them go
.
if all their good for
is endless
.
then let them go oh oh oh oh oh
let's stay
let's become one face
let's stay
let's live our shame
..
make our place
in the weeds they left for our
grace
suspended in space
there's got to be space
if all you're good for is takin up space?
and just staring into places with no escape
.
well hello!
well hello!
oh welcome home
welcome home!
..
we'll rip the pages up that broken thrown
oh oh aye
oh yah..
..
[THERE SHOULD BE A BAND OMG I AM TIRED OF NOT HAVING BAND im 80minus40
oh SORRY I SHOULD NOT BE TALKING DIRECTLY TO YOU RIGHT NOW! ha ha ha]
.
if all yer good for is lovin me
that's good enuff for me

Additional Info

this is a "sketch" as far as music goes. it's spontaneous both ways and maybe you will see what i mean. i used to be "wuicker on my feet" yes i know "wuicker" is not a werd". it's long. it's how i record. normally its "done way better" but i have some which would really scare my mom so i just leave them be!" so. however, as far as art goes: strokes and shin splints happen. this was done i think between august and september of 2011. i wish there was a picture of this "event"- it was quite acrobatic. one track and me balanced over an amp reaching towards a mic stand holding my tellycaster and me screaming sort of a semi melody. and i did have a few words scribbled waiting for lee to get home and i think the dog was like running about knocking me over half the time. it is a very long 12 minutes plus. DARE LISTEN! it does mean a lot to me. however lee and i gave up trying to come up with a drum lick for it. one portion can hold to "DISCO" and i dont even know for the rest. dont think this one will be seeing "pop radio"/ but i appreciate any moment where i can sing and play it is good for the soul.
..
many thanks

The passion and layered ambient goodness leaves me freeing free. Thanks for sharing. This song needs to be heard.

i am super glad you like this. this is one i don't know if i could attempt again it was so "spontaneous and yet it just came right out. i do want to fix some things- but i do not know how -- i cannot hear some of what i am singing. the recording is rough. it is intense and joyful and it is very "pressing" like throwing a rock through some sort of one-sided double sided mirror but i can only see the one side- but i know the other side is love and love did not build the mirror so i am throwing that rock-for gods sakes - . and i can remember almost falling down because i had my pedal board under both my legs i was squeezed in this small space and i was using garage band [thats a program on computer]- which for me is extremely difficult to use I'm used to like "gear" even if it is crappy gear- and i was using a real microphone and my acoustic amp- to sing into - and capturing that with the usb mic jamming forcing it into like a thin usb cable . so i had chords all around me all a gangly . and lee was trying to work so he was somewhere? and was still having g r a a a a n d m a a a a a h l s. they ended sometime after that its hard to recall or he was highly underweight or something very weird very messed up with what was going on then it was like thanksgiving i think - --- so i was really freaking out. in every way. just to be careful - the comments are from 3 years ago 3 years ago but i recorded it a little before that. so i guess we have really come a far way. this is how good hope is- hoping and i call it "going large" and i went "large" with this song - having no clue the ups and downs which would be on the road ahead of me. love - R.

apparently i didn't read my own notes!
"this was done i think between august and september of 2011. i wish there was a picture of this "event"- it was quite acrobatic. one track and me balanced over an amp reaching towards a mic stand holding my tellycaster and me screaming sort of a semi melody. and i did have a few words scribbled waiting for lee to get home and i think the dog was like running about knocking me over half the time. it is a very long 12 minutes plus. "

but for some reason i really recall thanksgiving. unless i recorded again during thanksgiving- which is entirely possible… hmmm. i have so many songs. unfinished and half finished- then theres the "unsongs"

This is beautiful Rams .. I understand what you mean about the spontaneity .. Being spontaneous is good for your soul, more people should try it .. I just closed my eyes and absorbed myself in you voice .. the music and it was beautiful.. I am so glad that you are sharing these with us :)
