Casual Raiders, Never Apart

A new day, a beautiful world,
Another night, a new word,

From the ashes, a fire burnt,
A leader came, bold and blunt,

Estelali, a leader of people, so caring,
Estelali, courageous and daring,

A kinship rekindled and reformed, in friendship and glory,
Casual Raiders is the name, let me tell you about their story,

Four years ago, with a vision in sight,
After four years, still shinning with a light,

Who could have imagined, who could have thought,
The casualness and raiding and fun they brought,

Brandywine, a server abandoned, left by cowards, in fear of others,
But Casual Raiders stayed, embracing their new sisters and brothers,

Always staying true, to our core, our message was true,
It was a long, harsh, difficult road, yet we always grew,

Still taking the new players in, telling them they belong,
Not worrying about the wipes and failures, we kept carrying on,

The new ranks of amazing officers, in Ham, Mittens, Shoban and Fara,
The core group, in Io, CJ, Wook, Tanky, Anna, Prav, Snips, Tor and Vara,

Countlessly people in kin, with kind hearts,
Along with kin friends, the morgis’s and darts,

Together we make Brandywine, a place to be,
Our home in LOTRO, a sight to see,

Casual Raiders, always and forever, in our heart,
Casual Raiders, far away but never apart.

Maybe I Do, Maybe I Don’t

Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
Here is the history of life, the mystery of delight,
Born and raised in a middle class family, born to fight,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
The social ladder is hard to climb up, it is no doubt a struggle,
In a world of opportunities for some, contest of wizard and muggle,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
From the humble beginnings, to highest of the high,
The customs, cultures, family values and norms you defy,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
It is a duel between living and existing or surviving,
The purpose is to achieve the living, before I’m dying,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
My heart is ever yearning,
This world is ever turning,
The desire inside ever burning,
Absent mind, heart is governing,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
The thoughts are wack,
Watching over my back,
Grey in world of white and black,
Decision between striving and slack,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
So what is this fictional story,
What is this imaginative glory,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
Ramblings of an addict, in a battle to lose his cause,
Rambling ever on and on, absent praise or applause,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t,
Nowhere left to hide,
No rules to abide,
Absent belief, faith on the side,
Leaving it on God to guide,
To my salvation and decide,
To my fate and bride,
To my companion on this ride,
Coming back to humility from pride,
Saving me from the pit, large and wide,
To soar in the air, fly off and glide,
Maybe I do want to, but maybe I don’t,
I won’t say I do, I won’t say I won’t.

Questions On My Mind

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If God made Earth for Man, made Adam and Eve, then what’s the purpose of mass extinctions,
Be it 65 million years ago or 200 million years ago, I can’t understand, these facts from fictions,

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If God sent Messengers and Prophets for every nation, every tribe, every race, all of humanity,
Then how come there are still Aboriginal tribes, living in jungles, away from world and it’s insanity,

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If there is a direct lineage, from Adam to Noah to Abraham to Moses to Jesus to Muhammad, and it’s 6000 years,
Then howcome there are structures built by Man, from 30 thousand years ago, hunters and their bows and spears,

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

The origins of life in question, non living matter became a living being, what is a soul?
What is the meaning of life, and consciousness? What is Our purpose, what is Our goal?

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If good and evil exists equally, amongst the religious ones and the ones without it,
Then is the fault in the individual? Not the race, creed, color, religion, but why do we still doubt it?

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

What is good? What is evil? What is it, absent the consequences or context or punishment? What if we don’t get caught?
What is humanity? What is compassion? What is empathy? What if reward is all you sought?

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If fear of punishment, for breaking the law, makes one wear a seat belt, or wear a helmet, can you tell?
Then why do we make fun of, look down upon, mock the ones who proclaim their fear of hell,

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find.

A Moment of Silence

A moment of silence, a moment to reflect,
All the time wasted, all the duties you neglect,

The routine, ever going on and on,
There is no coming back to the time gone,

So wake up and realize and do something about it,
Work, hustle, work and never ever doubt it,

Hard work pays off, it’s a fact, not a fiction,
So kick out of your deviant ways and addiction,

It’s time to rise up and fix the mistakes made,
Time is running by, dear, live life before you just fade,

A pursuit of happiness, a happily ever after,
Live life with love, joy, family, friends and laughter,

A new beginning, a new start,
Pack your bags and depart,

Stay true to your core values, your heart,
Just close your eyes and breath in and throw that dart,

Peace is inside you, God is inside you,
Be bold and confident, be sincere and true,

Greatness is in your grasp, just reach out,
Show the world what you’re made of, what you’re about,

A moment of silence, a moment to reflect,
All the time spent, and the people you affect.

Casually Raiding

Another year of casually raiding,
Here to stay, never fading,

Leaving our mark on Brandywine,
Drinking our pints of ale and wine,

Beautiful people and their heart of gold,
Taking on challenges, being ever so bold,

A true family of people, a bond of Kinship,
Far apart but ever so close in friendship,

Growing in numbers everyday,
Casual Raiders are here to stay,

Four years since it’s inception,
It’s not a farse, not a deception,

We take all players, old and new,
Geared or not, as long they’re true,

Casual Raiders in their fifth year,
Having fun with friends, never fear,

No one will judge you ever, we have the best of the best,
So be proud and wear that as a badge of honor, a crest,

Another year of casually raiding,
Here to stay and never fading.

Casual All The Way

Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, casual all the way,
Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, we’re here to stay,
Oh what fun it is to raid night and day,
Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, casual all the way,

Sit down and grab some ale,
I am about to tell you a tale,

There was a time, about three years ago,
I got this idea about a kinship, you know,

A place for casuals and hardcores to unite,
To grow, have fun, teach, learn and fight,

A place where all play styles are respected,
Where your good nature is the only thing expected,

Over the years, kinships have come and gone,
But we’re still here on Brandy and carry on,

Over the years, many tried to destroy what we built,
But together we faced them, absent guilt,

Such a great group of officers and kinmates, a blessing,
Maybe the largest kin on the serve? Hah I’m just guessing,

Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, casual all the way,
Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, we’re here to stay,
Oh what fun it is to raid night and day,
Casual Raiders, Casual Raiders, casual all the way.

Stairway to Heaven

I fell from the stairway to heaven,

Guilty concious, my sins were seven,


Inspired no more, desired even less,

Hired no more, afraid to confess,


The mask of fakeness, fake laughs, fake smiles,

Journeying through time and space, infinite miles,


The will to rise up, the will of iron broken,

Remembering her eyes, regretting the words spoken,


Remembering her eyes, eyes deeper than Nile,

Her beauty and innocence, her sweet smile,


Her fake smile, her broken promises, her lies,

Her manipulation, her empty words, her fake cries,


She cut my wings, I couldn’t fly,

I sat down to wake up, to get high,


I picked up the pen and started writing,

Put my thoughts in rhymes and started fighting,


Took back control of my life,

Broke free, ended my strife,


Found my way back to the stairway to heaven,

To get to my paradise, my safe Haven.

Hidden From Sight 

There is a crisis, a turmoil going on,

Occupying my mind from dusk till dawn,

So many paths lay ahead, 

Which path should I tread? 

The decisions that create divisions, 

So many views and visions, 

Are compromises worth making? 

Or just carry on living and faking, 

Conflicted in my mind, 

I can’t pretend to be blind, 

What’s my release, my escape? 

I can’t cry over my sour grape, 

The hopes and dreams of people around, 

I was dropped in middle of this battle ground, 

One wrong move and it’ll be chaos about, 

I bow down and plea and cry and shout, 

I am a fighter, a warrior, stout hearted, 

Thinking of the departing and the departed, 

Can I make this right?

The end is hidden from sight!

Let’s Pretend

Let’s pretend that the fairy tail never ends,
Let’s pretend that the heart mends,
Let’s pretend that the dream is still alive,
Let’s pretend that I am still that naive,
Let’s pretend she is still in my heart,
Let’s pretend we never fell apart,
Let’s pretend that I still believe in love,
Let’s pretend that there is still a God above,
Let’s pretend I still believe her lies,
Let’s pretend the soul never dies,
Let’s pretend I never picked up the drink,
Let’s pretend I never rolled back from the brink,
Let pretend there is a happily ever after,
Let’s pretend there is still joy and laughter,
Let’s pretend, I never picked up that pen,
Let’s pretend I am still hiding in my den,
Let’s pretend life has a meaning,
Let’s pretend it’s not demeaning,
Let’s pretend I never made a mistake,
Lets pretend, let’s just pretend for Gods sake.

Fight!

This world in crisis, tension rising,
Tension rising on both side, its not surprising,
There is so much hate all around,
No one understands the real situation on the ground,
People blaming masses without knowing them,
Not even trying to understand, thinking they’re just blowing them,
They think there is no reason or rhyme,
They think they’re without any crime,
But that is not the reality,
It’s not just a brutal brutality,
What goes around comes around but they forget,
They think they’ll live forever, but they’ll regret,
The world is not black and white,
Hate is not a solution for this fight,
We kill their families with our drones,
So we cant hear hear their cries and moans,
But just because we can’t hear,
Doesn’t make it disappear,
When we don’t understand, we fear,
But remember karma is always near,
Yesterday we went to invade their lands,
Today we destroy under new brands,
Then we judge them when they flee,
We have eyes but we cant see,
Humanity is no where to be found,
Bombs exploding, we dont hear the sound,
Which direction are we moving in,
We have to stop this madness and look within,
People are people, people are everywhere,
Our colors different, but we have to be fair,
There is no black and white but there is evil and good,
We have to rise up and take control as we should,
It’s time to rise up and unite,
Stand up and fight,
Fight against oppression,
Fight against wars,
Fight against injustice,
Fight against corporations,
Fight against racism,
Fight against nazis,
Fight for fellow human being in need,
Fight! Just Fight!
