So a while ago I bought myself an electric guitar with the intent of learning to play and hopefully record music. Well, that's still a few years away but in the meantime I have been experimenting with lyrics. So in this thread I'll post some of what I've come up with.


This is my most recent composition. There are some older ones but I'll post them another time. I'm generally aiming for one form or another of Metal, if that helps put the lyrics into context. I am interested in any constructive feedback.

My name is Entropy

Since the dawn of time
I have been watching you.
It's my eternal game
And there's no room for two.
A trillion times
I watched the ending come.
A trillion more
before the game is won.

I watched the first brave fish
Crawl upon the land.
Evolution's prize took you
From fins to hands.
From Ape to man
I watched the young race dream.
Look up to the sky
Believe they reign supreme.


My name is Entropy,
An ancient memory,
I bring your life and death,
I take your final breath.
You are dust to me.
You're on your own journey.
There is no god to hear
But there's no need to fear.


When the lies began,
I saw the first of clans
look up to the sky
And they all wondered why.
They didn't know the truth,
So young, so brash, uncouth.
And so their gods they made
out of their dreamer's clay.

They are much older now
But they're still dreaming how
Life's lessons unlearned
Civilizations burned.
How can I let this be?
Is this all on me?
I cannot fix their plight,
Was they who started this fight.


My name is Entropy,
An ancient memory,
I bring your life and death,
I take your final breath.
You are dust to me.
You're on your own journey.
There is no god to hear
But there's no need to fear.


There are no gods to save you now,
There is no guide to show you how.
But you can wake your mind to see,
Life is a chain yet you are free.

All of the pain that you have known
Is just experience you've grown.
Why must your past lead you astray?
Throw off the lies and seize the day!

I am the one who brings the end.
I am the rebirth time will send.
The cosmos glorious and free
I drive it all, I am Entropy.

This one was based partially off my character Entropy, but also this article hypothesizing the idea that life itself could have originated due to the physical process of entropy. Interesting stuff.
