A SCARECROW ON THE GALLOWS

The lyric below is from my song, ‘Ballerina Dancing’ from 2014. It got good reviews back then but me being me it has never made a published album yet. Right now the song itself is still in demo mode, but not for much longer, so just the words today.


I’ve never known love
And I’ve never known hate
And charcoal letters on the wall
Help seal my fate


Ballerina dancing
And she’s just a silhouette
An offer to the condemned man
Of one last cigarette


All I know is all I know
And all I know is real,
Like a scarecrow on the gallows
It is no big deal


I’ve seen the writing on the walls
In shadow land today
Telling of another place
A place of night and day


I’ve never known love
And I’ve never known hate
And charcoal letters on the wall
Help seal my fate

  1. Hello,

    We got in touch a few weeks ago about one poem from Mrs. Geetha Prodhom, an artist you worked with.

    She’s still unreachable and the various social media she is subscribing to, including her Tweeter feed, remain mute since December 1st, I’m very concerned.

    Did you get any news about her?

    Best regards, Paul

    1. Thanks. I’ve been sitting on the music for this one since I recorded the demo. It was recorded in a bedroom when I was at uni. This time around I want it perfect. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks again ~ George

    1. Thanks. I’m glad you liked it. Funnily enough I found the original demo from back when on ReverbNation, down the bottom of my listings. It’s the ‘made in a bedroom’ before i had the right kit, demo version. I thought I’d kept it on an external hard drive these days. If you fancy a listen then here it is – no worries if it doesn’t ~ George https://www.reverbnation.com/zoolon/song/29289224-ballerina-dancing-demo-version

      1. It was certainly different from what I expected to accompany your lyrics. It’s a very frantic beat, more fitting for modern dance than a ballet. But what do I know when it comes to creating music. Not much! 🙂 Thank you for sharing.

      2. You’re right, a new version will be in slow-mo. The original song was part of a uni concept album based on Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’. Pace was all. But now it stands alone, I can play around with it. Thanks for listening ~ George

      3. Now that you said it was conceptual piece for Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’ it makes more sense. I’ll look forward to the musical revamp. Thank you for the time to explain. Have a good day, George.

    1. Thanks. I guess standing alone it must read a bit dark. The original song – the demo – was part of a uni concept album based on Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’. Given that the album was recorded in a bedroom before I had all the right kit it never got released. I think the 8 tracks this one was part of would have made a decent concept theatre musical. One day maybe. Thanks again ~ George
