Lyricist for progressive rock songs

I’m about to start a progressive rock project (composing & producing all the music plus performing what I can, mostly keys) and need relevant lyrics. I’m looking for original subjects, so mostly not love songs (although I’m not against them, as long as the lyric is not pop in character).

Hello Dionysis. Welcome to the Forum. Lots of neat people here.

Can you post some samples of your work please?

This is a sample song (in greek lyrics though).

It is a style I recently got interesting to compose in, so not many things to showcase yet!

More to be written in english lyrics, hopefully!

I enjoyed that video, Dionysis. Loved the start as the figures on stage slowly became recognizable. Nice sound to the music too. I think it would help to have a rough translation of the lyrics, or at least a quick summary of what they are singing about.

And welcome!

Thank you!
I would actually like to make an english version of it.
But for the time being stick to the music :-)

I just thought it might help give potential lyricists an idea of the kind of subject that interests you.

Essentially it talks about how we are brought up with a “fairytale” ethic and how in the course of our lives we ponder upon the conflicting messages of society which, ultimately, don’t work.

Greetings from Tehran

I am a lyricists writing since the age of 9 growing up in Houston TX.

You mentioned you want genuine lyrics with no tendency towards pop?

Well I have a couple of songs that may be of your interest….

I will post one here under ...If you are interested ..let me know as I have 7 songs ready now…only one of them is a love song
and the lover is the universe so it’s not a typical love song although in some parts of the songs it appears to be so.

Let me see now ....alright let me give you the most organic song I have in my album :

“Mirrors”

Hey you who are white, yellow or black.
The light of sun will shine pon all cracks.
And if you brown, blue or tanned
The earth, seas and sands.

Chorus:
So what you mean?!
I am a Muslin?!
Can you really
Kill a Christian?!
Tell me what you mean?!
I am a Buddhist?!
Now who you calling the Judas?!

Can you speaking
Speaking clearer?! 
So we getting nearer…
No boundary interfera!

We not the same tone and shade
The red of blood shall never fade
We all the same form and shape
Your reflection how can you rape(Man)?!?!


Chorus:
So what you mean?!
I am a Muslin?!
Can you really
Kill a Christian?!
Tell me what you mean?!
I am a Buddhist?!
Now who you calling the Judas?!


Your movement
Ooh yes motion
Have inspired my contemplation
From your temples
Your temples high
Down to the fields of your devastation
Shhh….
The light of love will shine!!

Dark in brown
Deep in blue
Strong in shine
Yours and mine
Rust to dust entwined!!

 

ChorusX2 : 
So what you mean?!
I am a Muslin?!
Can you really
Kill a Christian?!
Tell me what you mean?!
I am a Buddhist?!
Now who you calling the Judas?!
