Gratitune (Spintunes Round 2)

Post by vowlvom » Sun Nov 18, 2018 8:58 am

Thank You Rafa & Agnes by Vom Vorton

the house was quiet for a while
needed a jump-start for my smile
there was something massive missing from my soul
it had been over a year
since feline life was here
when you lose a friend it’s hard to fill the hole

the only answer was a little madness
to balance the boredom and soothe the sadness
and now I want to say…
thank you Rafa and Agnes

I’d like to say we felt a
special connection at the shelter
though really, you were just part of the pack
but we found it hard to resist the
call of a tiny brother and sister
with patches of white among the black

we brought two balls of madness home
to balance the boredom and soothe the sadness
and I want to say…
thank you Rafa and Agnes

and now I can’t say life is perfection
we made the right decision
even if things get destroyed
when you’re not under supervision
you make us smile
you make laugh
you bring us endless fun
although it has become difficult
to get anything productive done

on balance I can say with gladness
you blew up the boredom and shot the sadness
I want to say thank you Rafa and Agnes

a tennis player and a film director
became a ladder climber and a shoe inspector
I want to say
thank you Rafa and Agnes

"Looking For Light" - Third Cat

barely keeping my eyes open
swerving in the road again
don't even care if I make it back.

barely feeling like I'm alive
laying in my bed 'til five
I'm falling deeper into the black.

pull me out, pull me out.

looking for light with your love
no longer afraid to feel
don't know what's seen above
but I need for life to be for real.

only your love can clear my mind
my thoughts were stuck deep behind
you laid the track, now I'm coming back.

pull me out, pull me out.

looking for light with your love
no longer afraid to feel
don't know what's seen above
but I need for life to be for real.

looking for light with your love (repeat)
thank you for (repeat)
pulling me out of the dark, helping me find a new spark (repeat)

So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish
Pigfarmer Jr

I got the 'Hitchhiker's Guide' for Christmas one year
It had me smiling from ear to ear
I sat down and read it straight away

I followed along as Arthur and Ford
Stuck out a thumb and climbed aboard
A passing ship in order to escape

I read it at twelve years old

Thanks for the stories
Thanks for the words
Some of the strangest stories I've heard
But I love them all just the same

I didn't get a chance
To tell you goodbye
'Cause you died in a bad year in my life
I couldn't afford a ticket for a plane

If I had a single wish
I wish I could have been there to say
'So long, and thanks for all the fish'

I read it again just the other day
Still love the crazy thoughts you convey
It brings back a memory or two

Most of my friends can easily tell
Why I relate to Marvin so well
And I wish I could say "thank you."

I love how the story is told

Thanks for the stories
Thanks for the words
Some of the strangest stories I've heard
But I love them all just the same

I didn't get a chance
To tell you goodbye
'Cause you died in a bad year in my life
I couldn't afford a ticket for a plane

If I had a single wish
I wish I could have been there to say
'So long, and thanks for all the fish'

Glen Raphael - Work of the Programmers

Song notes: on this day in Dublin far from home I am thankful for all the computer programmers who came before us and the work they did.

(I’m paying homage to an earlier song called The Work of the Weavers which expressed gratitude for those who make cloth)
lyrics
We’re all met together here to browse and post
As we gather round the gadgets we love the most
And we wouldn’t have the servers from which they host
If it was not for the work of the programmers

If it was not for the programs what would it bode?
You wouldn’a hae a thing that’s made of code
You wouldn’a had the Google maps to map your road
If it was not for the work of the programmers

There’s shopkeepers and truckers and there’s actors and all
There's doctors and there's ministers and them that live by law
And our friends in Sooth America, though them we never saw
But we know they use the work of the programmers

If it was not for the programs what would that bode?
You wouldn’a hae a thing that’s made of code
And you wouldn’a had the Google maps to map your road
If it was not for the work of the programmers

Though coding is a trade that we never can doubt
So long as we need features and to keep bugs out
So let us all be merry o'er a glass of good stout
And we'll drink to the health of the programmers

If it was not for the programs what would that bode?
You wouldn’a hae a thing that’s made of code
And you wouldn’a had the Google maps to map your road
If it was not for the work of the programmers

Zoe Gray - How to Sing

written for Spintunes #15 round 2. challenge: Write a song that expresses or conveys genuine gratitude for someone or something. Your song may be fictional but the expression of gratitude should be sincere. Your song must include vocal harmonies.
lyrics
i already miss your harmonies
already miss it all, oh, please
i feel so scared, please
am i ready
please don’t ask me if
i think i’m ready
i already feel it changing fast
so many things will be our last
am i prepared, please
am i ready
please just tell me how
you think i’m ready

but i know what i’ve got
in the back of my mind
something sweet that you taught
that i won’t leave behind, no
and i know your eyes
cause they look just like mine
and i just realized
that i think i’ll be fine, oh

because you gave me

music
you gave me dance
i don’t know how i’m gonna do this
but you make me think i stand a chance
music
and everything
you make me laugh more than i should
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing

we all know i’m not the best with change
not being with you sounds so strange
i’ll be alone
will i be ready
please don’t ask me if
i think i’m ready
i’m afraid that i will never be
what you both seem to see in me
am i just dreaming
that i’m ready
please just won’t you promise
me i’m ready

but i know what i’ve got
in the back of my mind
something sweet that you taught
that i won’t leave behind, no
and i know your eyes
cause they look just like mine
and i just realized
that i think i’ll be fine, oh

because you gave me

music
you gave me dance
i don’t know how i’m gonna do this
but you make me think i stand a chance
music
and everything
you make me laugh more than i should
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing

and i sing for all the
ways you made me come alive
i sing for all the
ways you make me feel that i’ve
been someone
worthy of the melodies of you
i sing for all
the things i never would’ve known that i could do

because it led to

music
you gave me dance
i don’t know how i’m gonna do this
but you make me think i stand a chance
music
and everything
you make me laugh more than i should
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing
you gave me music
you gave me light
i don’t know how i’m gonna do this
but you make me think it’s worth the fight
music
and everything
you make me hope more than you know
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing
and you taught me how to sing

Good Guy Sôjàbé - Upward & Onward

A tribute to the late, great Stan Lee.
lyrics
It was a quiet November day
When a giant fell to earth

The stories we heard were uncanny
Freed our minds, escaped our reality
We needed heroes in our lives

You said being different was a power
The images and words we devoured
From the streets all the way to outer space

We thought you were invincible
amazing and spectacular
Thank you for being our hero

Out of your head
And onto the page
Upward and onward to greater glory
Isn't that what you said?

Avenging every childhood dream
Life more fantastic than it seems

Astonishing tales you told
Never go away, never grow old
Villainy that never goes untrialed

We surfed the edges of stars
Threw shields at evil in its purest form
More than fairy tales of a modern time

Brian Gray - Your Name

…where the keys are made up and the notes don't matter.

I had some big time fun with this one. Lost count of how many keys, time signatures, and tempos I went through to get to where I wanted to go. This is essentially an extension of "For the Glory of Gleeble Glorp" (obviously, from the background vocals), and since I'm setting two songs in the same universe, why not pretend I'm in a musical? It even gives context to the background vocals, who are groups of slaves and refugees, chanting "for the glory of Gleeble Glorp" and moaning in pain or distress, respectively. I can totally visualize this being staged. Let me know if you think I have a hit here.

OF COURSE I borrowed somewhat from Sondheim, most obviously the absolutely on-the-nose reference to "There Won't Be Trumpets". Lots of other influences too from many other musicals. Shoulders of giants and all that jazz.

Anyway, story wise, the attack has just ended, and most humans have been melted by the slime. Of those that were not, most are taken as slaves. Our unnamed narrator here was targeted by a Gluman streaming slime, and someone else jumped in front of the stream. As the anonymous hero melted, the narrator ducked into a staircase to the subway system and ran around the corner to a temporary safe spot, to take stock of his situation among other survivors…

lyrics

You didn’t have time to think or time to fear.
I hadn’t the guts to disagree.
And now you’re like all dissolved and I’m still here,
And I can’t stop being glad that it was you instead of me.

So I keep thinking how there won’t be trumpets,
Blaring majesty to drown my shame.
And no statue with a plaque atop the ash of an attack
On this world that doesn’t know your name.
What was your name?
What was your name?

Already that briefest glimpse is fading now.
Tomorrow you never will have been.
And I will go underground, and on somehow,
Taking solace that mine isn’t so original a sin.

So I guess there never will be trumpets.
And you only have yourself to blame,
If you thought there’s any use in trading down for this excuse
Of a man who never knew your name.

And so what if there are no more trumpets,
In their cynical and brash acclaim?
Played by men who aren’t me in overblown hypocrisy…

And so this hypocrite will now say, “Thank you”,
Knowing I would not have done the same.
But whatever I’m about, from the here to here on out,
What I do, I do it in your name.

Temnere - Not This Time

come back alive
doomed now to live this life once more
for countless times i have been reborn

repeat, revive
bound through this curse forevermore
another try to even up the score

in life i left my debts unpaid
my karmic bed unlaid
in, keeping to myself
room for no one else

this time ill do right
i swear i've seen the light again
god i'm trying

an open mind
an open heart to bear before
the ones ive loved, the ones i long ignored

and so ill ride against the sea
of selfish tendency
to prove my own embetterment
show my sentiment

eons spent in search
each time i'm stuck behind again
not this time

now that i've found you you must know
the thanks i've never shown
a hundred lifetimes of regret
i hadn't learned my lesson yet

now i see the truth
my good i owe to you my friends
and i'm sorry

Ominous Ride - Dodging Bullets


I tried to do something original: Being grateful for past women dumping me so I could find my soul mate seems original. Another failed romance song, not who much.
lyrics
lyrics
Mama used to tell me I was a catch
Later would I find how many times they’d throw me back
In my mind I was kind and articulate
And educated to the third degree
It would have been nice to see
How hard a woman is to please

One side of the coin was pain
But the other side a blessing

She drifted in like an autumn breeze
Everything she said and did put me at ease
But then she changed in a way that I can’t explain
I didn’t understand her outer rage
Like a rabbit trying to save its cage
I was more afraid of being free

And the daggers she thrust into my heart
I mistook for Cupid’s arrows
Standing in the hall, looking back at her
As she slams the door

Thank God she left me and went her way
So I could find my smile another day

She pegged herself as an LA 10
And when we met I was on my feet again
Somehow we clicked and began a relationship
But then her superficial faces all began to flip
And though I knew the chemistry was wrong
I had no intention of moving on

The incessant belief that I could make it work
Like trying to crack a safe from inside
Sitting at a restaurant table asking questions
And she’s on her phone

Thank God she left me and went her way
So I could find my smile another day

Another night and I’m wide awake
Because she won’t pick up
(And though I don’t know what I’d say)
Is it something I’ve done?
Or what I’ve become?
Or what I’m trying to save
(And I haven’t laughed for days)
There are better things for me
Looking back and giving thanks for what I

See
They were no good
Falling down is not the end of the road
Now someone comes along to make me happy
Gonna get back up
And turn around and see her smiling back at me

Thank God they left me and went their way
So I could find her smile another day

Faster Jackalope - Selfless Heart

Selfless Heart
by Faster Jackalope

Verse One
Painful
Parts of me broken
None of them noticed
But you found my scar

Pieces
You pick them up slowly
Glue them together
Wrap them up tight

Chorus
All your might
You gave me on that night
Lift me up
Carry me back home

Selfless heart
Well I knew that from the start
But you are the one who comforts me

Verse Two
Healing
Mending up slowly
You know that I only
Owe it all to you

Suffer
I know you suffer too
I don’t think I can help you the same way

Chorus
All my might
I’ll give you here tonight
If you want, I can hold you close

My calloused heart
Will slowly break apart
If you won’t open up to me

Bridge
All you do
and here I tell you true
care by the plateful
yes, I'm very grateful

Chorus
All your might
You gave me on that night
lift me up
And carry me back home

so, all my might
I’ll give you here tonight
If you want, I can hold you close

Governing Dynamics - Guiding Star

When the smoke began to clear
We were clinging to each other sharing breath
Like I'd awoke my heart alight
Finally found the spine to get back in the fight

Break down my walls to let the light in

You cleaned me up so I could grow
Followed through my phases of being hard to know
The twisting vines of my wistful wandering mind
Siren songs and secrets, wrongs you might've left behind

It's all I can do to try to deserve you

You are my star
The light I keep in sight in the gathering dark
I don't know who I'd be
Without you as my guide, so thanks for shining
All your light on me

Your love for the ignored
I feel it resonate
It towers, overpowers
When I'm adrift in hate
In my mind's upheaval
Beset by all these evils
I'm reaching out for you
Our place I always run to

You are my star
The light I keep in sight in the gathering dark
I don't know who I'd be
Without you as my guide, so thanks for shining
All your light on me

Marlon - I Am Not Your Princess - SHADOW

I realize this idea was already done by the Mountain Goats, but hey, it's not like I can get eliminated twice, right? Right?? Anyway I did my best not to retread the material they did (except in the bridge). But anyway, this is my favorite Mario character and two people who took the time to notice him and rescue him from a dungeon when they could have easily warped past. So he's grateful to them the way I'm grateful to the two people who didn't put me in last place last round
lyrics
I know your journey
Hasn't been a
Slow walk in the park
I know this wasn't
What you hoped to
find here in the dark

I know you're hanging
By your very
Last disheveled string
You hoped to see your
quest come to an end
And you only got me

It's been a while since
Anything but
Screams of pain left my mouth
All I can think to say is
what you've no doubt figured out

I am not your princess
I am just a toad
I know that you only
Saved me by mistake
But thank you Mario

I know that I
Can't imagine
Just how hard you've tried
You must have died
A hundred times
To end up here by her side
And the guy in the green
seems to have seen some bad things
So I know it can't be easy to hear me say

I am not your princess
I am just a toad
I know that you only
Saved me by mistake
But thank you Mario

I've been
Captured for weeks
Trapped here with
All of these freaks
Witches and monsters and ghosts
I knew at once I was toast
But oh my gosh there you are
A hero dropped from the stars
And I mean these things with
Every single spore in my heart

I am not your princess
I am just a toad
I know that you only
Saved me by mistake
But thank you Mario

Menage a Tune - I Wish (Jennifer's Song) - SHADOW

Written as a shadow for the Spintunes 15 Rd 2 challenge "Gratitune", Write a song that expresses or conveys genuine gratitude for someone or something. Your song may be fictional but the expression of gratitude should be sincere. Your song must include vocal harmonies.

My next door neighbor is alive today because a child died 25 years ago. She remarked to me recently. "I was watching Isabella and realized she is the age of the girl whose liver I received." A powerful thought to have, truly bitter sweet, and it was this that I wanted to convey in my song. Back then, transplant donors families and the people whose lives were saved were not able to communicate with each other. I am glad that today they are given the option of sending letters, and possibly meeting each other. I have seen videos of people listening to the heart beat of their child in another person's body, and am getting teary remembering it as I type.

My uncle had a heart transplant from a 16 year old who had died in a car wreck; we got to have him and all his wonderful silliness for 16 more years because of it, far more than the 5 years they hope the transplant will not be rejected.

25 years for my neighbor...both she and her daughter are living miracles.

Please sign an organ donor card; tell your family you have done so. Don't take your organs to heaven- heaven knows we need them here!
lyrics
I Wish (Jennifer's Song)


I was young, but I was dying
Didn’t think that I’d see twenty
I would never have a husband
Or children in my life

She was young, her life was over
Taken from you in an instant
You would never hold her children
She would never be a wife

Oh, I wish you could see her!
See her playing in the yard
I wish you could meet her!
She’s the age your daughter was
When in your grief you gave my life to me-
I wish you could see her

Thank you! Thank you!
For my daughter for my husband
For my life
Thank You! Thank you!
I pray your grief was lighter
With the knowledge that
You gave another, life

Time has passed, it seems so quickly
But the years are five and twenty
I got to have a husband
And a daughter of my own
You’re older too, I’m sure you miss her
I’ll never know if you had others
I hope you had more children
I hope you haven’t been alone

I wish you could see her!
Blonde hair shining in the sun
I wish you could meet her!
Know your child’s life is not done
She’s alive in me, and in my daughter too-
I wish you could see her.

Thank you! Thank you!
For my daughter for my husband
For my life
Thank You! Thank you!
I pray your grief was lighter
With the knowledge that
You gave another, life

Red Watcher - I Wasn't the One - SHADOW

It started simple. Now it’s not.
You broke up with me. Broke my heart.
How could this happen?
I couldn’t satisfy your hope.

We parted lives and time had slid
Would it surprise you? I’ve a wife and a kid!
How could this happen?
Thought I was sad but
Now I know

I should be grateful that I wasn’t the one.
I should be grateful that I wasn’t the one
I should be grateful that I wasn’t the one.

Sometimes I ask them where’d you go.
I find you ended up alone
But I can’t face it
You can’t erase
What’s already gone.

I should be grateful that I wasn’t the one.
I should be grateful that I wasn’t the one.
Although I hate to admit we’re done,

What goes around comes around.
What goes around comes around.
All that you lost won’t be lost
And what goes around comes around.

Jocko Homomorphism - A New Ideal - SHADOW

Number theory would be unrecognizable today without the incredible contributions of Dr Emmy Noether in the early 1900s. The study of polynomial roots had exploded in the 1800s, but the new number systems broke a fundamental properties of integers -- unique factorization into prime numbers.

Since the prime numbers were flawed, Noether came up with "ideals" to take their place. An ideal is a set of numbers which behave the same under multiplication, like how we can categorize integers into evens and odds.

Noether was interested in chains of ideals, each ideal contained in one that's bigger. Number systems where these chains are finite are now called 'Noetherian domains,' in honor of her work. Besides algebra, she also made major contributions to physics and topology.

lyrics
"The Theory of Ideals in Ring Domains"
We're grateful, Emmy Noether
A woman of talent and major brains,
I'm talkin' Emmy Noether

With her vision and abstract mind,
she changed the face of algebra.
With her vision she saved the day,
when all the primes had broken down

Let x be the square root of minus five,
Imaginary number
It ruins your factors and that don't jive,
Probationary number

Sets of numbers with simple rules,
will multiply and draw you in
Sets of numbers we call ideals
will take the place of factoring

Make a new ideal
Numbers all together
Make a new ideal
Thank you Emmy Noether

Once in an ideal you can't get out,
They get you with the times sign
But that is their strong suit and there's no doubt
We're gonna need that times sign

Number systems with simple rules,
use their ideals for factoring
Number systems we give the name
"Noetherian" to honor her

Make a new ideal
Numbers all together
Make a new ideal
Thank you Emmy Noether

Taking out an ideal
And putting it in another
Climb the ascending chain
We have to stop here says Noether

Taking out an ideal
And putting it in another
Climb the ascending chain
We have to stop here says Noether

The people in physics say give to you,
They're grateful, Emmy Noether
You helped David Hilbert, and Einstein, too!
So thank you, Emmy Noether

With your passion and abstract mind,
you changed the face of algebra.
With your passion you saved the day,
when all the primes had broken down

Make a new ideal
Numbers all together
Make a new ideal
Thank you Emmy Noether

Dr. Lindyke - Match - DEMO - SHADOW

My time, shoulder, and equipment are all fighting me this weekend, so this is just a live demo.

It is, of course, an expression of thanks organ donor. Becoming an organ donor is easy... just check the box on your license at the DMV. Do it.
lyrics
So you give your heart to me
Now is my life mine or yours
And if you gave me your eyes
Would I see like you did before

So what's there to fear
With my dog and dawn in front of me
For the light's been dim so long
I can barely recall the memory

We're the perfect match
You know rejection can be so hard
For a random act of kindness
That holds no reward

Now when I lie down at night
How on Earth can I sleep
Knowing it's cold where you are
While I'm here in the heat

You're the proof I guess
That I could have done more
Than just sit around in pity
And let my blessings go ignored

We're the perfect match
You know rejection can be so hard
For a random act of kindness
That holds no reward

I pray often for you
And I hope that you still dream
And know the good that you’ve done
To make this partial life complete

You’ve made up my mind now
And they say you’ve wasted your life
Yet you’ve given so much
They need only look inside

You’re an angel to me
‘Cause you gave me back my life
Where I wore blinders before
You’ve allowed me to see
All the beauty of life

Red Watcher - Kindness Reigns Power - SHADOW

School
Was so stupid
For a room of big headed kids
Yup I was one of them
It was useless
(They would argue)
Gotta be the top of class
And screw the rest
But there you were,
Sitting so quietly
Listening to the words they spoke
We both knew it was such a joke
Then you mentioned politely,
It does no good to
Disregard the things we should do

‘Cause we’re only as smart
As we try to be
When kindness reigns over power
Yeah we’re only as smart
As we try to be
When kindness reigns over power

I guess I really sucked
I was failing
You offered to tutor me
I thought I was hopelessly
stuck
I don’t know where I was going
I wish I had ambitions like yours
I wish I had them
But I don’t
I don’t know why you would help me
I’m such a cynical guy
I can’t deny, you know.
You would sigh so nicely
“Stop your excuses
Keep your chin up, you can do this.”

‘Cause we’re only as smart
As we try to be
When kindness reigns over power
Yeah we’re only as smart
As we try to be
When kindness reigns over power

Come what may,
I once heard you say that
Sometimes you just have to inspire yourself.
It’s a fine line dividing the ones
Who will rise and who give up on themselves.
And if a wheelchair can’t bind you,
Then why can’t I try like you?

Yeah it surprised me
That you had two months to live
And the skeptic inside me
Is asking what did I give?
All our friends are mourning so kindly
They remember your name
And what you did.
Your steps still inspire me.
You couldn’t walk but you were walking down the stage
And we saw you graduate

And proved we’re only as smart
As we try to be
When kindness reigns over power
Yeah my heart still goes out
To the ones who never doubt
That our kindness reigns over power
