The Lyrics

Made this up in the spur of the moment. I considered Carry On My Wayward Son as the theme song to Supernatural. But on this song, I have applied a meaning of what I have been feeling these days. Enjoy.
Something’s wrong, my son
Look around you, see what’s been laid out
Then take a break
You’ll need peace and rest.
Don’t you dare give into despair!

Once I conquered the silence and the illusion
Just to find a way to make a solution.
I was closer than ever before, but I fell too low.
Though my ears couldn’t hear, I still felt the sounds
Though my eyes could see, somehow, I was still a blind man.
When I’m asleep at night, I could hear the voices
I could hear them say

Something’s wrong, my son
Look around you, see what’s been laid out
Then take a break
You’ll need peace and rest.
Don’t you dare give into despair.

Masquerading as a man with a purpose and reason
This charade was the facade of the season.
And if I claim to be a smart man, well
It surely means I don’t even know.

On a flying plane of flurrying emotions
Tossed about Iike I’m a parachute to be pulled out
I set down towards the target of fortune’s gold
But I hear the voices say

Something’s wrong, my son
Look around you, see what’s been laid out.
Then take a break
You’ll need peace and rest.
Don’t you dare give into despair!

(No!)


Keep on, you’ll always remember.
Keep on, nothing equals the splendor.

Now you have all the answers
Surely, the path awaits you.

You’ve done things right, my son
Now there’s peace and you’re done.
You can take a break and rest.
Don’t you dare give into despair
(Don’t give into despair no more).

You're not matching the original song at all. That is task number one for a song parody. Your song should sing like the original. If you wantto see how to do "Carry On", click the blue link on.this page and see how Alvin Rhodes and Porfle Popnecker and Claude Prez did it. Learn something

Your song is crazy, Tan. But great, by the way.

Makes just as much sense as the original, but it's quite beautifully written. That being said, CML is right. For example, the title refrain should have been something like "Yeah, I feel something's wrong, son".

OR, "Something's very wrong, my son". That sings exactly like "Carry on, MY wayward son." You got to match the intonation of MY exactly because they hit that syllable so hard

I've done this OS as well. Since I was not really familiar with it, I listened to it several times and tried to match the syllables. Then I listened again with my lyrics on one side and the audio in the background. There is usually some way to tweak the lyrics to capture the effect of the original.
