New song in progress - I Believe

Lately I've been experimenting with unconventional lyrical and musical styles. At least their unconventional for me. Unconventional in the sense of the song structure, rhyme or lack of rhyme, and so forth. I'm also striving for lyrics where the meaning isn't completely obvious, and could be open to different interpretations. Here's a draft of one tentatively titled "I Believe". The music is also somewhat unconventional, and composed on electric piano, which I haven't done before. Another thing I like about this one is that some of the lines are very short; there's a lot of space between lines. I'll record it soon and post it on my myspace site.


I Believe
by Rob Roper August 31, 2008

I believe
because I need to
It exists
because it must
Don't bring logic into this
Don't ask me for the proof
Don't bring logic into this
I won't think about it
I won't think about it
I won't
think

I believe
we have a choice
That one's bad
so this one must be good
Don't say anything bad about him
Don't say anything bad at all
Don't say anything bad about him
I won't hear it
I won't hear it
I won't
hear

I believe
because I need to
