The Fourth Wall

Here’s a new song I made called “The Fourth Wall”! For those of you who don’t know, “Fourth Wall” is a term for the imaginary wall between the characters of a TV show, play, etc. that divides the story and the audience. “Breaking” the fourth wall means that the character comes in contact with the audience. This song is from the point of view of a character who knows that somewhere out there, there is an audience that likes his performance. I hope you enjoy it!

The Fourth Wall – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

The first scene is where I appear
The characters may not look ahead
But where I stand the view is clear
I know there’s someone else
Instead of constantly thinking about the fellow characters like me
I bulge my eyes out at the crowd ’cause there is other stuff to see

I felt the glass
The audience suggests I take a hammer
So I smash the screen
My hand is not
Just made of pixels once I poke my face through
Exiting the scene
And all my life
Participating here I never realized it’s fake
But in reality out of normality
I’m the only one to ever break
The fourth WAAAAALLLLLL

You creep me out as you are watching although
You might say that of us as we speak
And focus right into your human eyes
As we still do every week

The next scene I’m lost in a mall
And I have to concentrate
But I could just ask you where the exit is
That would be great but I’d
Fail to care and think about
The fellow characters I see
I love them all but not as much as
Audience that talks to me

Once I reached out
A barrier protected me from everything I know exists
Out of this world
I always had to stay in ’til I
Found a place that’s filled with bliss
I broke right through
And hoped you’d understand that I can
Live a life that none could make
And in reality out of normality
I’m the only one to ever break
The fourth WAAAAALLLLLL

Nuclear Winter

Here’s a new one!

Nuclear Winter (4:22):

Nuclear Winter – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

A storm is coming to our town
The sounds I hear are way too loud
For us to sleep when
It comes to our own nighttime
I see another second term
I see nobody has confirmed
The reason those
without homes are trapped in violence

Find my house with the crooked
Roof with parts that fell
And windows cracked because of
Guns that don’t aim well

I think the weathers getting cold
And that the story has been told
Like they know what it
is but not when it will end
They think that they’re accomplishing
A new lesson learned is just the thing
To keep them from poking their
Head into our space that we live in

Someday you’ll find out just how
Frightened we are now
If one could stop this mess they
Still would never tell how

CHORUS:

The nuclear winter tries us
hard as it can to tear us out of our land
The day that I woke covered in
tons of dirt I realized that no one understands
the terror I lived through in the cold dark nights
Every single year of my life

Our supply of food is running out
Barely enough to go around
We’re starving and there’s
Nothing anyone does about it
I think somehow we won’t survive
And moments like this in our lives
Can make us feel like
Every day is as long as a year

Shelter and food is all that
We are asking for
But people act as if we’re
asking for ten times more

Repeat Chorus

We try hard to make it through
But there is still not much that we can do

Repeat Chorus

Wasteland

Here is song I completed last December, but just got around to posting it. I used this song on one of my PMVs (Pony Music Video). Check out my “Video” page to watch it.

Wasteland (2:40):

Wasteland – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

Entered this wasteland
I did last weekend
The sky was very still… until…
I got quite used to it and
You looked back at me
Blinked your eyes disgustingly as I just
Turned around but never walked away from
This place

This desert wasteland
Frolic through the sand
I’ll sing and play this tune as soon
As I complete the band
Then build a dirty stage
And our still fantastic bass player’s
Lost in traffic and will not come back to
This place

I followed through the maze
Until I saw the gaze
On your eyes I could tell you didn’t
Want me to get any closer
I just kept marching on
Since the fourth wall is gone
I’ll live in where there aren’t distractions
Everywhere I go

(Instrumental Break)

The day that I met you
I didn’t have a clue
What caused all this destruction but
After some research I know what did
It goes back to the day
That this place was pretty
But no one likes that idea anymore

My finger touched the ground
And I shall wash it fifty times or more now

Come to this wasteland
There will be cake and
A celebration soon, for you
So you enjoy it so that
In this day’s midnight
While you others scream and fight in your land
We shall just relax and I suggest you do the same

This desert wasteland
It will be so grand
And then the sun will set… I bet…
You will have thoughts that we were
Friendlier as well as this
Ground for us to sell to you
Your new home will be the best

Don’t bother standing up
You don’t look bored enough
Just carry on with what you’re doing
You’ll be ok
If not then call for help
We are not used to you just
Staying here every night

Dizzying Heights

Here is a new song that I just finished. This song is about a magical creature that everyone seems to be impressed with. I played all the parts including the vocals. My dad helped out on the guitar. Hope you like it!

Dizzying Heights – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

I brought stuff to enjoy on the way
I don’t know if I’ll get to the top today
My head won’t balance
Let’s try my feet

With lots of water from rivers nearby
I won’t need tearfulness to keep my supply
Until I’m falling
Then I land on the street

CHORUS:
Half of the time I’m walking around
I know I shouldn’t but I’m looking down
The weather crawls right into my coat
My balance falls back into the moat
I lose my sight above strange and dizzying heights

Go slow and steady and you may succeed
But just for once I will try it with speed
I’m not so used to
Attempting different things

One more step and I will be done
But at the sandy ground I hear someone
They tell me to come down
But I have a bad feeling

CHORUS 2:
Some of us walk right into the sun
I know they shouldn’t have but I’ve begun
To start on a path that leads to my heart
But there is something keeping us apart
Until midnight I’m on strange and dizzying heights

Walking on dizzying heights
Trying to find dizzying heights
I can’t find you
I can’t find yooouuu

(Instrumental)

(CHORUS)
(CHORUS 2)

Astroflight – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

Some cloud is long and thin
Like someone flew up there
With maximum speed and we know the clouds we see are changing
Feathers fall on the trees
Feathers from a monstrous wing
We know we’ve seen it at the end of a rainbow from far away

Jealousy will always seem to be uncommon
But there is no other choice but to envy people talking

Behold up in the sky
Preciousness shall make us cry
But the things that I see are way too much for me to take
Colors can not be made
Or at least the stories say
But clouds are all white and I know they’ve made color in those

I’ve searched but never seen any different creature
But there’s something coming soon that I will never miss and

Chorus:
Take time in your crooked house to do whatever’s necessary
At least once a day look out the window to see the extraordinary
There is someone faster than you ever could imagine
And I’ve seen the light. I know it’s name. Astroflight

Newspapers tell the truth
For the first time I did not believe what I read
Until up ahead I saw the face
Sometime when night will come
It will shine instead of the sun
So it never is dark and it never will be night again

Guitar Solo

Chorus (repeat)

Bridge:

Stand on those clouds and meet your destiny
From then on you’ll know what you are supposed to see
Some day you’ll be as amazing as it is
He’s something every one will want to be

Chorus 2:
Take time in your fancy house to do whatever’s necessary
At least once a day look out the window to see the extraordinary
There is someone faster than you ever could imagine
And I’ve seen the light. I know it’s name, and

Take time in your fancy house to do whatever’s necessary
At least once a day look out the window to see the extraordinary
There is someone faster than you ever could imagine
And I’ve seen the light. I know it’s right, I know it’s name Astroflight

Techno Cube – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

I’m living in a techno cube
I live with nothing else to see
But the window that I hope never let’s me free
I’m living with a tiny bug
Between the colon and the ‘L’
And there’s nothing that can ever come between ourselves

Chorus:
Some days are happier than you’d think
It’s nothing I can say but it’s true
And I say what I do feel like now

Someday we’ll type away all our life
The minute the computer is dead
But we like to pretend it won’t be
But still we have 200 laptops
No matter what our neighbors will say
We won’t throw away any one of them

Everything I say, interestingly
Is another part of technology

I’m living in a techno cube
I order all my food inside
The delivery man slides it under the door and hides
I’m living in a world of links
The more I click the more I think
I can memorize the fonts as fast as I blink

Chorus (repeat)

Guitar solo

Rubik’s Cube – Music and lyrics by Andreas Jahn

There is a world
Where pencils lie around
And draw nothing and just wait to be found
For every nap
Everyone tries to take
There is a thing that changes color and shape

Chorus:
I’ll hold in my hands and
I’ll make a friend
Called a pattern I see in my eyes
If we can change and energize today
We’ll have mercy, houses and food
We will always be in a good mood

Our breaks are short
But our work gets destroyed
in Slow motion
We’re too lazy to work and enjoy
We let things build themselves
But this film is fictional
You are seeing lies and hearing a fake guitar solo

Solo

No more
No more laying around because

Chorus (repeat)

Food
Mercy and house
I try to do activity
This slug has changed it’s color

Chorus (repeat)

Chorus (repeat)
