BandRockBlues

We aim to create the best songs in the world. Genre: Alternative Rock / Metal / Emocore. We save our extreme emotions in songs; what good is a song otherwise? At the start of the next year (next semester) we will put together our songs into CD's and sell them in school.

Biography

Oeniques

The name is made to be artistic in design, mostly visual design. That's the gist what we strive for - artistry, rather than popularity and nonsensical loudness that some bands seem to prefer.

By artistry, we mean many different things:

- Creative structure of song to best present the lyrical content (We try to create our songs in different structures than the mundane ones like Start - Verse1 - Chorus - Verse2 - Chorus - Diff - End)

- Fine-tuned lyrics that best present the idea - rather than being merely straightforward so that any listener can understand at their first trial

- Intricate composition that aims for much more than "sticking it into the listener's head" - much more than commercial songs - we aim for artistic work. By that we mean we present our songs to artists rather than the public. Thus, to best enjoy our work a close regard is required.

- Emotional content (in lyrics); a song without emotion is a song without passion, a dry song. It also means the song has nothing to do with us; and therefore very dishonest and probably also having little to do with listeners because the songwriter would have known little about the lyrics himself. We are honest, and present our true emotions - in fact, the most extreme emotions we encounter. By doing so we believe we are fine-tuning the artistry of our songs. It cannot be avoided, though, that only the people who have felt similar emotions before will emphatize with our songs and enjoy them best.

- Creativity in instrumentation; if it sounds better, we incorporate new instruments into our songs, such as the piano, the strings orchestra, and 6-string bass. We do not confine ourselves to the electric guitar, bass, and drums.

As we yet lack experience and therefore some skill, we try our best in the due time we are given.

Yoon Ho Jung

Yoon Ho started writing songs - at first not very seriously - from the winter of 2004, in 8th grade. He was inspired with a friend Hyunjei while preparing together for (not really) the SAT, whose score they needed to submit to gain entrance to a summer-school program called CTY. During preparation at an academy, Yoon Ho and Hyunjei talked with ferverent interest about the rock songs they loved - the style, lyrics, and structure. They made a promise to themselves that they would start writing songs as soon as the SAT test was over. And after the test, the two best friends got right to work. They started with only a cheap, classical guitar; they knew nothing more about songwriting. At first, no matter how hard they thought, nothing came to them; but they became better as they did this over a long period of time. They eventually came upon a computer program called Guitar Pro 4, a songwriting program that even sounded the written notes, and this is when Yoon Ho could really start writing songs - he would meditate all day at school about new, creative melodies, come home to quickly write them down in Guitar Pro 4, and ponder over them for the rest of the day.

Before meeting Hyunjei, Yoon Ho was not very interested in Rock; rather, he listened to Rap. Hyunjei introduced Yoon Ho to Rock and later played a part in introducing him to songwriting. Hyunjei, therefore, is a best friend who really changed the course of his life for the better. Without Hyunjei Yoon Ho would probably have never embarked on this composition odyssey, much less have such a strong love and affinity for rock music.

Lyrics

Dreams Stay

Written By: Oeniques (Yoon Ho Jung)

This time I may regret
This time may be the same as the last
It may be better to just give up

Stop myself dead from regretting
Hold myself back from the wish I wanted
Cover up the reaching hands of my thoughts
Let it smother
And stop myself dead from regretting that wish

I should hold myself back.

Having desires like these
It laughs in my face
Comes more mockery
In my heart, it hurts when I fall onto the ground

Phase one, consists
Confidence and
Willingness to dare for a chance
It could work or fail

And phase two
Where you failed as you did the countless times
In the past till now
You have wanted, but failed
Again and again
And you had wanted the gain

Keeping desires like these
It laughs in my face
Corrupt mockery inside
I never wanted that much
But laughs in my face
Until I collapse
When I
Know that I¡¯m all alone in facing

¾Æ ¾ÆÁ÷±îÁö ¸ð¸£´Â°Å´Ï
³ªÀÇ ¼Ò¸ÁÀº ¾ðÁ¦±îÁö¡¦
(Translation:
Oh, do you still not know
Until when will my wish¡¦(last)
)

Keeping desires like these
It laughs in my face
Corrupt mockery inside
I never wanted that much
But laughs in my face
Until I collapse
When I

Know I can realize my dream
That laughs in my face
I strive for that dream
And keep my hopes

Unfolding Complication

Written By: Oeniques (Yoon Ho Jung)

Right inside of me
It's settling
Ready for some
Resurrection of
Anger management's
Feared enemy
Upcoming

Walk through the sideway
Clear up the path before my steps
When it starts
you're all down beneath me
I can feel it coming
and when it does it's silent
no-body's living up to my ruthless vengeance

You give the signal for the
wrath of my fisto
If i hear you agitate me I'm again a killer
So then you wanna keep shut
Even though I keep my silence
In-side somethings burning up
and it can really hurt, so

KEEP OFF!
You don't wanna stand before me, as do I
KEEP SHUT!
Do you have some words to say? Well then
SHUT UP!
Finally a word from me you're all
FUCKED UP
So you better stay away. FROM ME!!

This is how I- feel, it keeps growin inside
This is who you made me become

Also at the core of my mind there are
stuff rather difficult to tell in words
How I got kicked off
from the phone by you
That's where I hoped could maybe get me back to where I was
But I'm
Homeless and lost
within and out of my heart
I now stand on this dead hill looking and find
I see nobody
or else dead bodies
I see nothing that can help me out of where I stand
Nevertheless

KEEP OFF!
You don't wanna be stand before me, as do I
KEEP SHUT!
Oh you have some words to say? Well then
SHUT UP!
Finally a word from me you're all
FUCKED UP
So you better stay away. FROM ME!!

All around the people are circling on the margin
Round and round they circle like magnetic force

Right in side of me
It's settling
Ready for some
resurrection of
Anger management's
Feared enemy
Upcoming

Fire Evacuation

Written By: Oeniques (Yoon Ho Jung)

Fire has suddenly broken out
Everybody's runnin for their lives
But I'm standing
Inside a burning home
I'd better think quick before I get stuck here

I could escape
With scars on my body and head
Burned up arms and legs
And scorching memories
Of pain and heat
Dreaming fire every night

Or I can die here

When I'm
In this tragedy, when I'm stuck in this stalemate
Through recovery I only get more distorted
So I take it all and it's hurting even more
This is when I feel like I lost most everything

My home is losing its basic foundation
The wooden beams collapsing down (in front of my eyes)
Burning logs and the shaking floor
Things are getting worse

When I'm inside this house, windows covered by fire
I can never know outside, sometimes I just ponder
How would this look from outside?
Would they understand it's burning to ashes?
Painfully, and ever silently?
Would they be able to see through this veil of thoughts?
And emotions, pains?
They should realize that what they see is a cover that I used to hide, from...

I could escape
With scars on my body and head
Burned up arms and legs
And scorching memories
Of pain and heat
Dreaming fire every night

Or I can die here

When I'm
In this tragedy, when I'm stuck in this stalemate
Through recovery I only get more distorted
So I take it all and it's hurting even more
This is when I feel like I lost most everything

Far Reach

Written By: Oeniques (Yoon Ho Jung)

Never before have I been so drenched
Reaching endlessly falling
Not even close but still justified
And I walk on like always before

Getting up and forced back down again
Fighting against the pressing down divine power
Alas I face it the king

So it is begun
Oh God bless me
Thus I
See nothing but this

As before, I walk hostility
Far before me, I barely see myself
a sight, a hazy dream on
For I have come a thousand hitherto lands
I know I deserve much better
Still my sight is far from reach touch

and I have but a choice I'm loath to~ choose

Suddenly I bluntly see a truth
Such a novel insightful
tragic realization of a fool
All that I give eats more away

So it goes on with much sacrifice
Which I still can't afford to
do away these corrupt barricades
Keeping me from myself far away

As I put out more for it to gorge
I am indignant of myself
But this is the only path
That I can reach myself far away
And I put out more for it to gorge
And I'm indignant of myself
But I know t¡¯is the only path
That I can reach myself far away

((
As before, I walk hostility
Far before me, I barely see myself
a sight, a hazy dream on
For I have come a thousand hitherto lands
I know I deserve much better
Still my sight is far from reach touch
))

Yet I can't give up
For I'm centered
I need
more sacrifices

So it is begun
Oh God bless me
Thus I
See nothing but this

And I put out more for it to gorge
And I'm indignant of myself
But I know t¡¯is the only path
That I can reach myself far away

((
As before, I walk hostility
Far before me, I barely see myself
a sight, a hazy dream on
))
