skeletorg – “X: The Wheel” (Original Song)


18 long years, yet the years they pass so
quickly I’ve never felt so different ‘cuz I still
feel like the same me Everyone says it will so I know it’ll all
work out. Still I doubt. What a pity youth must be wasted on the young
I only know one thing and it’s that I know none It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die Hello’s Goodbye Five years ago I aged thirteen and though
I don’t know how, I was much older then, and I’m younger than
that now. Trust that I’m a liar, so when I say that
I’ve known no youth It’s the truth. What a pity youth must be wasted on the young
I only know one thing and it’s that I know none It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die Hello’s Goodbye The earth that’s nature’s mother is within
her tomb. What’s in her burying grave but that rainbow
in her womb? To die in dust and live by fame, death shall
all the world subdue And Renew The kid I was last week has since Monday been
quite dead; Replaced by the me that’s me that woke up
in their stead Next week when I’m dead too and the me that
I’ll be is born Will they mourn? What a pity youth must be wasted on the young
I only know one thing and it’s that I know none It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die Hello’s Goodbye Old enough to vote but not old enough to drink. All this wonderin’ I’ve been doing really
makes me stop to think. At the end of the beginning, is it the beginning
of the end A bookend What a pity youth must be wasted on the young
I only know one thing and it’s that I know none It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die Hello’s Goodbye Captain– on a ship without a sail As I venture ‘cross the nothingness to yank out Oroborus’ tail I fear nothing– the most frightening thing to fear– That that nothing might envelope me when I’m no longer here… Oooo- Ooooo-
Oooo- Ooooo- Ooooo- Oo-Oo-Oo
Oo-ooo Oo-ooo

  5. LYRICS OF THE VIDEO:

    18 long years, yet the years they pass so quickly

    I’ve never felt so different ‘cuz I still feel like the same me

    Everyone says it will so I know it’ll all work out.

    Still I doubt.

    What a pity youth must be wasted on the young

    I only know one thing and it’s that I know none

    It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die

    Hello’s Goodbye

    Five years ago I aged thirteen and though I don’t know how,

    I was much older then, and I’m younger than that now.

    Trust that I’m a liar, so when I say that I’ve known no youth

    You know the truth.

    What a pity youth must be wasted on the young

    I only know one thing and it’s that I know none

    It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die

    Hello’s Goodbye

    The earth that’s nature’s mother is within her tomb.

    What’s in her burying grave but that rainbow in her womb?

    To die in dust and live by fame, death shall all the world subdue

    And Renew

    The kid I was last week has since Monday been quite dead;

    Replaced by the me that’s me that woke up in their stead

    Next week when I’m dead too and the me that I’ll be is born

    Will they mourn?

    What a pity youth must be wasted on the young

    I only know one thing and it’s that I know none

    It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die

    Hello’s Goodbye

    Old enough to vote but not old enough to drink.

    All this wonderin’ I’ve been doing really makes me stop to think.

    At the end of the beginning, is it the beginning of the end

    A bookend

    What a pity youth must be wasted on the young

    I only know one thing and it’s that I know none

    It’s a Catch 22–To live one day to die

    Hello’s Goodbye

    Captain– on a ship without a sail

    As I venture ‘cross the nothingness to yank out Oroborus’ tail

    I fear nothing– the most frightening thing to fear–

    That that nothing might envelope me when I’m no longer here…

    Oooo- Ooooo-

    Oooo- Ooooo-

    Ooooo- Oo-Oo-Oo

    Oo-ooo Oo-ooo

  6. dad i love your singing AAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    dont worry my voice has cracks too but yours is so good<333
    stay awesome

  7. Oh my god another song!!! I loved the meaning and sound of the last one but this one it improved so much! The lyrics flow so smoothly and has a creative and catchy tune. Along with the meaningful impactful lyrics.

    Also the cover art is so cute.

  8. What do you call a sad clown? a clown. Can you imagine someone who works as a clown and doesn't hate their life? not directed at anyone in particular just saying something without actually saying something.

  9. Heckin hell, your voice sounds so different since the last song you put out, and it somehow managed to improve hella too. You are an inspiration

  10. I found you through d&d vine comps and this and Sandstone got me to finally write music for my d&d characters! Keep it up, you're very good!
