Grew up with Enid Blyton books such as the Magic Faraway Tree and the Wishing Chair...

 

 

World of confusion                                       Draft                                               RogersonLB

 

 

V1

Life was simple when I wore shorts

like the flint-stones no one swore

We watched our p's and q's and back door was always open

then the world decided greed was good

 

 

 

Chorus

 

Feels like I've climbed the magic faraway tree

 

landed upside down in the world of confusion

 

where right and wrong and both the same

 

hate and lust just a passing phase of decaying youth

 

Feels like I've climbed the magic faraway tree

 

landed upside down in the world of confusion

 

 

V2

School was easy but times now changed

lost our leaders while we seek fame

TV and flogs with blogs taught us what we somehow needed

and like good little soldiers agreed

 

 

Chorus

 

Feels like I've climbed the magic faraway tree

 

landed upside down in the world of confusion

 

where right and wrong and both the same

 

hate and lust just a passing phase of decaying youth

 

Feels like I've climbed the magic faraway tree

 

landed upside down in the world of confusion

Hi Arty,

Didn't know the book series so coming at this "open".

 

The verses, to me, seem alittle weak for such a "deep" chorus. V1 could develop this idea abit better

Then the world decided greed was good

 

These chorus lines are wonderful.

Feels like I've climbed the magic faraway tree

landed upside down in the world of confusion

where right and wrong are both the same


 verses could support this chorus line better.

hate and lust just a passing phase of decaying youth

 

Kinda see V2 in a better light, but think this lyric could be so much more with stronger  verses.

 

:)
