intro We may not be professional musicians here. But we may like to compose music and, sometimes, lyrics and other artistic writings.
Of course, you may use anything posted here in your own work, create your art from this, whatever. It would only be fair to give something back if you see any value in it or if you get something for it. in sono Music composed over the years. Played on acoustic guitar with no usage of guitar picks and amplifiers, recorded and edited using Audacium. Requiem for midnight (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.18
Something I composed long time ago. Probably would be better on a piano, but I don't have one. Perhaps not the best sound, recording and playing, but not bad for my non-professional equipment, playing and editing. I find it very satisfying to set this on repeat and listen while working - I guess it's probably the best to create your own music for such purpose.
Requiem for stars (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.22
Resurrection of truth (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.31
Sometimes I think the intro in this one should be slower, sometimes not...
Resurrection of truth [demo] (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.29
Demo recording of the song above.
Resurrection of truth [demo 2] (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.29
The same demo as above, with slowed down intro.
In memory of youth (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.29
Dedicated to teen days, friends in high-school and AC/DC who made these bearable (days of course).
The misery of Baal [demo] (Amenoum)
Date of recording: 2021.08.29
I can imagine this with drums and perhaps more consistency...
in scripto Here are some lyrics, cryptic and other writings done over the years. All in all, it's all just a play of words and structures, sometimes with a deeper meaning, sometimes maybe not.
Droga (1998), Amenoum

1st verse:

(1) Ja nisam bio jedan od mnogih,
    bio sam drugaciji od svih.
(1) Ja nisam bio jedan od onih,
    bio sam bolji od njih.

(2) Misle da su na ovom svijetu sami,
(2) nemaju nista u toj prokletoj glavi.
(3) Bez zivota, tupi pogled u ocima,
(2) bez pravog cilja, lutaju nocima.

(4) Svi su oni isti, svi su oni psi,  
(4) leze na cesti, puse kerozin!         -2x
(5) Nemaju para da kupe drogu pravu,
(5) nemaju novca ni za obicnu travu!     -2x

(6) Volio bih biti netko drugi,
(6) Volio bih znati sto se nalazi,
(7) preko granice, daleko od stvarnosti.

2nd verse:

(2) Stajao sam na rubu, duboko u tami,
(2) pognute glave, buljeci u prazno.
(3) Bez ikakve nade, spasa na vidiku,
(2) Drzao sam bodez, ali bojao se kraja.

(4) Ti sad ne znas kamo, ti sad ne znas kud,
(4) Ti se malo gubis, il' se pravis lud!     -2x
(5) Vise ne znas zasto, kako i kada,
(5) Heroin je tvoja jedina nada!         -2x

(6) Volio bih biti netko drugi,
(6) Volio bih znati sto se nalazi,
(7) preko granice, daleko od stvarnosti.

It was that morning, I've found myself,
Standing on a line, between the dream and reality.
They've found my soul, at the edge of insanity...

Sparks and flames all over the place,
The game was over...
Rage of fire (1999), Amenoum
I'm gonna make a devil of myself,
gonna take the evil outside.
Summon the demons out of me,
a lot of bad things I'm gonna do..

and when I'm done, I'll do the same to you...

But the things went wrong and bad,
I did something I never wanted, not today,
And my soul went the wrong way...

Hey, is this a curse, the final damnation?
Can't think of the worse situation.
Am I in hell, cause the fire's all I see,
The fire rages all around me...

Rage, Rage, it burns flesh of me
Fire, Fire, raging inside me

Rage, Rage, it burns all around me
Fire, Fire, raging inside me
Piece of time (2002), Amenoum
moments of time are passing by
faster every day, time's running away
one moment I'm child
the other one I say goodbye...

if only I could slow it down
if I could run before my time...
but I'm a man, not a god...

I can hear the time passing by
and as I sleep it steals my life,
my little piece of time...

*Chorus (2x)

 the time races with my mind
 and I can't win, I know
 I can't tow the line
 the time.. wins every round

I can't stop the clock
the seconds are getting away
another hour, another day
my life is fading away...

*Chorus (2x)

 the time races with my mind
 and I can't win, I know
 I can't tow the line
 the time.. wins every round (2x)

*Solo

I can hear the time passing by
and as I sleep, it steals my life,
my little piece of time...
Rusted truth (2003), Amenoum
And when my trust begins to rust
and at the end just turns to dust
then I'll know there's a life
in every truth and every lie
there's a time in place
when every thing has to sigh and die
where everything goes to die

So while you're here don't hesitate
don't wait to realize a life of dreams
just be alive just be alive
Blijeda noć (2003), Amenoum
Svaka noć je tako tiha, tako ista
Uvijek gluho priča o samoći,
nijemo govorim u sebi...
Brojim uvijek sate i minute
dok razmišljam o tebi
I kako minuta ostaje sve manje
one postaju sve duže
a meni sve je teže...
I u sitne sate, kada noć već polako blijedi
moje oči traže tebe
uvijek traže ono što najviše vidjet vrijedi
Blijeda noć izblijedjela je moje lice
a sad već i kapi slane kiše
brišu ga još više
Umorne oči čekaju na tebe
čekaju da dan pretvoriš u san
i mole da ostane vječan
Less than nothing (2005), Amenoum
why is it that
I can see thru you
why are you so pale
bright just as a day

why are all your words
all your lies
I wonder if there's something true
in your head
behind those lying eyes

no, there's nothin' real
nothing about you
can make me feel
anything

faking smiles
faking cries
you're everything
but less than nothing
makes me wonder how
whenever did you die
For god's aches (2020), Amenoum
No man cares for god's aches 
as man likes to believe it cares for man. 
The man chose not to see gods 
in divine it chose to claim. 

And when the abuse forms hell and the gods depart, 
only then, when aches reflect to bite the man 
image of the devil will be accused for abomination no more
but recognized as a serpent made of human men and women. 

God is called on the premise of good intentions 
and with a promise of no repeats in misbehavior. 
Of course, soul free of matter, now believes in 
good, now, when it is nowhere to be found. 

Now, comes the suffering you have abused with your medicines. 
Now, comes death you have abused with your pills. 
Now, comes the hour, one you have abused, over and over again, 
for a piece of paper made out of a tree.. you have abused. 

Proudly. 

Now, when diversity and abundance of life 
you have transformed into diversity and abundance of pain. 

Even now, with the end upon you, you only pledge to feel the shame. 

But now, comes hell to consume you, thorough and slow. 

In fire, now, you realize, what does it truly mean, 
to call god's name in vain. 

In that single, yet painfully infinite, moment of now, you will accept the truth. 
Upon maturation of yours, 'twas the devil in yous who said... 

For god's pain, let me be a man. 
Let me be corrupt, so there can be sin.
Let me be tamed, so I can tame.
For god's aches, you're inhuman, be humane. 

And yous... said yes, 

Am I evil? Yes I am man.
All ships have sailed (2021), Amenoum
Looks grazing distance
because there's nothing close to sea
all our ships have sailed
beyond the point of no avail

our horizons may be wide now
but devoid of events 
we are particles of dust
and all our remains are waves unalive

was anyone ever here
blinded will one day wonder
but may choose blindness
to remain the only wonder

was anyone ever here
blinded will one day wonder
but may choose blindness
to remain the only wonder
