An Ode to the hate yet elaborate relationship between a human and it's creator, an intellectual combat between man and god, life and creation, birth and destruction. Not really..., it's a story of a singer uncomfortable singing the lines given to her and her annoyance for the song provided, also the really thin line between various emotions a melody can give it's listeners. and an end to a wonderful collaboration between Pia Salvia and me recording this song last of her 3 included for ODES.

Pia to Forte
Tempo : 80 Bpm
In confort I'm bored,
To repeal it I bring-,
-In a major discord,
When I sing-
-In this minor chord. (repeat)
And I might switch, In a bit,
From upset to happy,
Higher pitch,
To befit,
Your preset to beauty.

Hear me now,
See the smiles now instead,
Hear me now,
Easy to get in your head,
Is it not,
No matter what I just said,
Hear me now,
Ho god I think I misread,
Hear me out
These lyrics have you misled
"I'll be Pia-It-seems-on-
-Forte glissando,
My pia-ni-ssi-mo,
Seeks heavy Crescendo,
I'll be Pia,
It seems,
An outlaw,
In themes,
A major melody,
On a minor mind,

And I think I lost it,
Singing this line,
The composer’s crossed it,
So I'll decline,
Smilling back again,
In tune and insane
I'm swinging in vain,
Singing in pain,
From Pia to forte,
From depth to cliché,
Beatrice to Dante,
From dismiss to display.

And I might be lost,
Yet hear me now,
I might pay the cost,
Yet hear me now,
Eloquence was here,
All along,
Beyond the sound it appeared,
Growing strong,
Hear it now,
On the drums,
Hear it now,
On the horns,
Hear it now,
In my voice
Know it now,
It's a choice

So let me end,
On beauty restored,
Yet also to offend,
With this minor discord.
