Out of the Game

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

I’m out of the game
I think you’re the same
I’m spinning toward your love-shaped energy
From the distance, I could smell our synergy

I’m out of the game
I think you’re who I became
I’ll remember your voice in every phase
As we navigate through this endless maze

I’m out of the game
I think you’re more than imagination’s flame
I saw you in our connected visions
Whispering to let the flow guide decisions

I’m out of the games
I think my mind’s eye still frames
A picture of trust
That no amount of time could rust

I’m out of the game
I think I’ve grown into more than my name
But with your divine trace
I might grow beyond space

I’m out of the game
And never to get back in
But with your graceful aim
I might let reality re-begin

Fucked Up (Song Lyrics + Song)

You kinda love me in a fucked-up way
The way you love me I could never stay
I sorta knew that it would go this way
I never really thought you would stay

I’m just a puppet in your master plan
Had me eating out the palm of your hand
I even wanted to be your man
Nobody else could ever understand

You kinda left me in this fucked-up state
Took for granted everything I gave
If it meant something I cannot say
Our love was always doomed for the grave

You kinda want me in this fucked-up way
Even though you have no plans to stay
It’s kinda crazy how it goes this way
You love so much and then it fades away

It’s kinda funny how it goes this way
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they never stay
You love so much and then they go away

I loved you so much but you did not stay
I loved you so much but you went away
I love you so much but you would not stay
You broke my heart when you left that day

Nobody else should ever feel this pain
Nobody else should ever feel such pain

This song went from a very upbeat sounding song to more of a slow song with only four chords repeating, which reiterates the cycle of loss. It’s interesting to try writing something out of your comfort zone. Sometimes trying a different artistic medium opens your mind up to higher creative endeavors. If you can: try to do something totally different with your next piece. Thanks for reading and listening!

Pregnant Infinite Connectivity

By Benjamin Grossman & Amber (DiosRaw)

In a world pregnant with temporary encounters, yet enteral knots, in a world that romanticises and philosophises the abstracts of next lives and alternative universes we dispose in the now.

Every second is some form of a small tomorrow, every passing moment part of the long, long past. The path to the future is paved with repetitions, whether light or dark.

Eternally knotted cyclical patterns betwixt the comedy and tragedy of every breath of air ever taken by souls; likewise every drop of water consumed yet synergised. If only I could take your hand and disseminate to you the Divine plan simultaneously existing in the eternal.

If only … we could samba through the bosom of the storms, cross the space between distance and time, shuck our stranger status, or baptize ourselves in patience’s perfume. Then perhaps we could return to our primordial states, remember the superiority of our ancient nonphysical forms.

In a parallel universe, ancients crouched side by side, chuckling that in some other life they are apart. Ancestral roots, the thread may stretch and tangle, yet never to break with elasticity pinging all order from chaos into being. My lips swerve with the rhythm of your lineage of words flowing through this vessel, the tongue caressing each morsel of wisdom whilst antiquated DNA rides the veins.

I connect to all existences through your umbilical cordage. You are the dawn of entanglements, the prelude to love, the one and only starting point; and I become inseparable from these essences by being enfolded in your spiritual domain.

Galaxies Across A Galaxy

By Benjamin Grossman & Ace

I am the birth of the Universe
Spiraling through my soul
I am a galaxy becoming whole
Beyond this life and evermore

A solar system of wombs
A star creating many homes
A heartland that eternally ascends
An emotion that will forever cleanse

The Universe echoing deeply in our veins
Our bodies free of restrains
Breaking through intrinsic chains
Becoming a galaxy’s avenue of many lanes

I am the birth of the Universe
All that flows and spins
A story with no beginning or end

I am a galaxy within
An internal grin
A destiny to begin
