Well, not much has changed in the last (how long has it been since I updated? Oh well)... while. Hmm... I guess it hasn't even been a week. But anyway.

I got an 89% on my math test! It was pretty exciting, since math isn't exactly my best subject. I've been doing pretty well in school lately... makes looking back to freshman year a bit embarassing. I sucked so much back then. I was bitchy and depressed and whiny, not to mention creepy and violent. And I slacked so much in school, too, and was just generally apathetic. I've changed a lot since then, which is pretty nice. Now, I'm not generally bitchy and I'm rarely depressed, and I HOPE I'm less whiny, and I'm not AS creepy, and I'm not violent, and I'm the opposite of apathetic. I can't believe I'm a senior this year. I can't believe I'm going to be 18 in fifteen days. I'm going to be legal! Woo! I'm not going to do anything that only non-minors can do... so it won't make much difference, but it'll give me bragging rights. 

We started a gigantic project in Animation, an advertisement for the Career Center (that's where the class is. I go there for half the day then back to regular school for the rest), but I don't feel like talking about it right now, so I won't. School doesn't need to fill this space. 

Here's a song I'm working on. I'll issue a fair warning: it's in the VERY early stages right now. 

You hit me with your melody
When I was hiding in the dark
You caught me with your masquerade
Your impatience left its mark

And all these faces laugh at me
And drain my common sense
All I have is my (insert something that sounds spiffy here)
Trapped behind a (fence?)

I’m lost here in a city
Where lonely people sleep
I’ve gone down to the bottom
And I’m in far too deep

Let me out, let me out, let me out of the dark
I won’t feed your pain no more
Let me out, let me out, let me out of the dark
Open up the door...

I was sitting here thinking about a song I heard one time called "Silver Rain Fell". It was a pure instrunental piece, no vocals whatsoever (mostly a keyboard arrangement). I was wondering what it would sound like with vocals. And then this popped into my head, so I had to work it into something. I'll probably go through a few revisions before I really like the end result, but if somebody could tell me what they think, that'd be so awesome!

Below are the lyrics, but I've also uploaded the recorded version of the song to my streamload account so it can be downloaded. Just go to and sign in as Moonchild10 with the password irunnaked, and you can download this song as well as another demo song I recorded a long time ago.

And if anyone can guess what the song is actually about, they get a cookie. I just like being cryptic.

Silver Rain Fell

You're so cold inside
And you’ll never be free
You’ll never know what’s inside
Unless you’re walking with me
I see you in darkness
When shadow steals light
Then I open my eyes
And you’re not here tonight

I search for the sound
Pouring into the rain
All that’s left is our blood
And it’s gone down the drain

But there’s always something there to remind me
Of the words I never said
When heartaches feed on rainbows
And music’s never dead
The night’s like a song
And my head’s a hotel
But I won’t forget what you told me
And silver rain fell

You’re so dead inside
And you’ll never be here
You can’t feel the inside
Because pain can smell fear
Roses and alcohol fall at your feet
You can kill my emotion
But you can’t kill the beat

My head’s a hotel
And your memory moves in
Love’s just a shell
And you can’t evict sin

My heart’s a hotel
But nothing gets in
I’m nothing but whispers
That flow beneath skin


I see you in raindrops
I feel you in pain
And you’re the only thing left
That falls with the rain

I’m trapped in your heaven
That life would call hell
But inside you’re empty
And silver rain fell
