TGIF: Week 7


Hosted by GReads!. Who’s ready for the weekend?!  I know I am!  I’m introducing a new(ish) feature for Fridays to re-cap the week’s posts & to propose a question for my followers.

This week’s prompt:

Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?
Answer: Probably Tokyo Jihen’s “Revenge (Fukushuu)”. I’m in love with that song, ever since I heard the live version on their last album, “Tokyo Collection”. I’m dying to know what exactly the song is about (well, aside from the obvious) and I’d love to see a book written around it. I forgot it was on one of their earlier albums, and it kind of made me rediscover their discography all over again.
Lyrics:
Beautiful thing, you lock your sights,
your hands are trembling
Savoring the taste of flesh and bone
Another one found, the rain it pounds,
and something looks the same
Innocence, you crave it black and cold
Take it down now, throw it down,
all you men wear that crown

Beautiful things, what would you know,
you’re rotting from within
The only self you care for is your own
Another one found, the rain it pounds,
and something looks the same
Pure young skin, there’s madness in your sin
Take it down now, throw it down,
all you men wear that crown

Are you afraid to close your eyes
Afraid there’s nothing left to die
On hills of ice there burns a fire
I’m coming for you from behind

Crazy young man, you think you found,
an alibi in privilege
You’re hollow inside, it bothers you, I know
You try and fill it in, you’ll never win,
you’re running just the same
The thing you hate the most, a pure soul
Look around boy, look around,
see you’re all alone now

Shut out the noise that fills your mind
And in the end you’ll see your life
You’re burning up before the fire
You never heard me from behind

Sometimes I have dreams, of life,
And all that dies comes back to grow,
it’s beautiful
So no, you’ll never really know
You’ll never really know
You’ll never even know, your final breath

So, what’s your answer for this question? What song would you like to see written as a book? Participate at GReads this week!

  1. Oooh, those lyrics are great! I have been wanting to write a story about Florence + the Machine’s Boy or The Girl with One Eye. Their lyrics are so warped I thought it would be fun…(does that make me warped?!) lol
