Now I'm sure all you Gorillaz fans are probably thinking, whoah, did this guy rip them off. No and yes. I've studying Vivaldi lately and his idea for the narration of music e.g. The Four Seasons. In it, he writes a poem about the subjects of the music. I felt like trying it out for myself, and Last Living Souls inspired me to do it. I know the song has some lyrics, but really, it's more like another instrument than a featured singer. Anyway, here is "A Poem Inspired By Last Living Souls".

Feet pound pavement,
and trudge on though,
one begins to wonder,
"Are we the last living souls?"
But stay the course
on the empty road.
Nothing left to come from.
Nowhere left to go.
Overhead stars begin to twinkle
though twighlight still lightly shrouds
the orbs' first shining
in miraged clouds.
Hour upon hour has
this road been trekked.
But so far, no hope yet.

Ahead sounds a voice,
"Get up!" it rings.
"Raise your head and bring
back your minds to present things!
Ahead, ahead, just through
this pass, between these hills.
Relief maybe at hand
at last!" But still,
holding pace to it's
even melancholy stride.
Out of disbelief
of what has yet been eyed.
Just as clouds overhead furrow brow
a tension of hope enters now.

And at the beginnings
of cresting the pass.
Still feeling heavy optimism
weighed down by the past.
To the distance
eyes gaze ahead to see lights
and marvel at
the intriguing sight.
As the eyes take it in
a bolt of lightning flashed above.
to remind those
that are alone and unloved.
But the despondent spark
won't break the stares
at what was there.

Twinkling against the stars,
and cloud top flares
in the night shines a city,
a city of nowhere.
Sprint to the city
a few feet below
with it's dark towers
and lit windows.
Door to door,
knocking without cease.
Each door passed,
hope's dramatic decrease.
Until frustration sets in
and deceit upon minds.
And to dreams hearts close,
and open to the thought of being
the last living souls.


Rhyme scheme's shaky I know, but was never a big sticklar on that anyway.
