"I suppose if we post something here (or anywhere on the net, I presume) as an original composition, is it safe to say that is the "copyright", of the poster?"
I think it's safe to say that it date stamped here - that it is a form of copyright -
the other thing you can do is "poor man's copyright" take you lyrics put them in an envelope - address to yourself and send by registered mail -
make sure the postal people stamp the date where the envelope is sealed - and when you receive it file it away unopened -
if you ever have to go to court to prove that the lyrics are yours you give the registered (unopened) letter with your lyrics to the lawyers or judge where it will be opened in court proving that you owned those words on that date - in case anyone published those lyrics after that date - proving you are the rightful author
hope that makes sense

Yes indeed. However, I believe I heard that being shot down by a court somewhere.
What the heck

Well, maybe in the States, but not here in Canada

Tales of the Clouds -
(July 18 1983 - Peter Gabriel Rain or Shine CNE Bandshell)
In the beginning
An ivory skeleton of a beautiful beast was cast upon the sky
Coming and going in so many forms, she is
Forever changing to met herself.
In a time of silent twilight I wait with her, for Him.
He calls Her Gaya,
She is the goddess of perspective,
He sees her many faces, true and disguised
Dancing with her
He says He will bring to Her lost children
Bring them back with tenderness and care
She says, Young Prince, if you can find for me my children,
If you can rescue them and gently sweep them up,
I will give you my throng, make you a King, and share with you my love.
In the beginning
He played Revelation
And right away, I caught on
He pulled me out
And led me back from all the chaos
So patiently He led me in a deep and gentle trance
With powerful music in my ears, I followed Him home,
He is the pied piper of the Great Moon Goddess.
The piper calls from somewhere in the air
Calls for me to join him
I cannot help but fall in love with His song
I hold the line behind Him with my heartstrings
As He stirrs the winds
And leads his parade across the skies.

an oldie but a goodie - written June 13/91 at Charlies Restaurant (Nanaimo, B.C.) with Vicky, Ryan and a little help from Mr. C
My Soul Has Thirst
Running on empty
my soul has thirst
I am her man
she is the first
I saw her from a distant shore
Separated by the dogs of war
Smiling she beckoned me
Dancing under a willow tree
Blood red heart in golden cup
She was thirsty I was hot
Her thirst was quenched
My blood ran cold
My soul was wrenched
I grew so old - so ancient
She caught my eye
I caught her soul
The Master played
sweet rock 'n' roll
We went to bed
I woke a'flame
Tangled passions to tough
Her tears washed away
all of my pain
She loves to dance
I love to flirt
No more pain
no more hurt
Our souls have merged
The world shines bright
She takes me soaring
through the night
Love is pure
Love is strong
I'm going home
where I belong
My desire runs deep
within her sleep
I am numb, but still I come
Oh lonely lust of devildom
My heart beats like a Tommy gun
She has me wrapped
around her thumb
She is my heart
I am her soul
She's every facet
of my rock 'n' roll
sometimes I write from a man's point of view

Is Beauty Silent?
Is Death a Mute?
Is Life a Game?
What is my Name?
Surrounded by White Noise -
A Cacophonous Din of Rays

Baby Faces & Judgment Day
Baby faces in ancient places
Soul's divine Satanic graces
Living high in the penthouse
Living low nose to the ground
Strange lights split the sky
Eerie traces eerie sounds
They've been here for years
They've recorded every tear
Silver ships on Judgment Day
Tired of this place - take me away
Judgment days every thousand years
Ground forces relate, summer daze
R & R the battle is over
Bad guys like rabbits run, take cover
Seeing you again, war is over
Smiles for returning men
Warrior girls & boys
happy wedding trend

Hey Ezri - glad you're back -
I thought I had killed the thread!
Nice one, too - that Baby Faces

Inside a face, a morning smile
Of sunshine warm and stretched a mile
A lock of hair, a tress so fair
A witch of a woman, but,an angel. an angel

here comes the lords of the fairyland,
princess, oh princess will you take thine hand,
beautiful maiden with sapphire eyes,
love me, please love me
there goes the queen of the willow tree,
sire, oh sire will you come and follow me,
handsome majesty with purple cloth,
love me, please love me
thou art an evergreen forest
of where i love to roam,
a place where my heart beats,
in a paradise of a lonely tune

Where is the solitude of which i seek?,
Does night fall without me?,
I cannot bleed without emotion,
Pour the wine from my bluest vein
Like the claret of love it seeps
And I shall sleep and sleep.

Thank you for posting here Mermaid Ezri and Padowan.
your words are much appreciated.
Padowan, happy you found the right way to the topic here they are meant to be

let fall this one into the abyss of oblivion, :-] and please gather under a sole banner.
That is my wish for today.
I would like to read you all "UP"
Have a good day all.

my fingers are the flute of which they play,
the song of the happy tavern
with thine finger tips a sweet, sweet sound,
inside the happiness of the tavern.
a piper stands amongst the weary crowds
at the door of the happy tavern,
with thine heart i find the perfect melody,
surround the walls of the empty tavern

O'spring, let's sing for the lighter season
afore summer,the brigher song to be sung
O come one and all, for the perfect reason
to celebrate in the warmth of the sun

So.with every passing day I seem to become unintentionally louder.here I am thinking if I stop listening to music and making noise on purpose then my life would go back to post-awareness.
I'm beginning to wonder how much bargaining power I have here.
Take care Brian.
