The New Serg Beret

Talking and Writing About Cinema Since 2012

Trailer-A-Thon Ep. 2: Defend. Evacuate. Run.

“Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to be.” Welcome back to Trailer-A-Thon, our bi-weekly look at the hottest movie trailers on the internet hosted by Serg Beret with Jerry Monroy and Patrick Raissi returning for their reactions.

This time around, we give our reactions to the smaller screen with Netflix’s “The Defenders,” then back to the big screen with Christopher Nolan’s war film “Dunkirk” and return to the sci-fi noir world of the future with “Blade Runner 2049.”

Lyrics: “Samantha”

Notes from the Writer
Hello, Serg Beret here. The next set of 14 lyrics (including this one) are revised and rewritten lyrics back from my first few years of writing lyrics. Out of the hundreds, only these 14 felt worth the time to revise and add to the next Lyrics Collection to be titled Schoolhead Revisited. The original lyrics will follow the revised lyrics

Introduction to “Samantha”
This song in particular was personal favorite and was originally written as “Zamora.” I decided to rewrite it with a different name with “Samantha.” It was written mostly because I thought Zamora was a cool last name and I wanted to make a Radiohead-inspired song (think of their second album The Bends when reading). Without further ado, here’s “Samantha” formerly “Zamora.”

“Samantha” (Formerly “Zamora”)
Got caught with your heart on your sleeve
It can clue in all your enemies
Embracing the sun and sky that surrounds yourself
And it’s quite clear you get the better of me
But as long as you stay under this light

Everything turns out fine
Samantha
We’ll remain in this time
As they try to take advantage of you
Falling down, falling down

Stare into your pondering soul
Make sure the framework is under control
Your lungs are gasping for breath
And you race as if to beat death
But as long I hold you, a new loving friend,
We can fend for ourselves out of this place

Samantha
We’ll return to home
Turn these cascading frowns to smiles in this time
As you make way to fall
Into my arms, into my arms

Could we take our bruised hands
And hold them hand in hand
Even if this relationship doesn’t last?
You’re intricate beyond compare
A beauty so debonair
Right down to every flaw
These pulses they beat in rhyme
This heart growing in size
Two sizes too small to three too big

I think we can try
To be fine in life
In these hopeless rhymes
Samantha, we can try

I promise to keep us afloat
Maybe it’s too much to hope
Samantha
We’ll be fine
We’ll be fine

“Zamora” (Original Version)
Got caught with a heart on my sleeve
Felt like I was being chased by the thought police
Embraced the air and the sky that surrounds me
And its pretty clear your mirage is all I see
As long as this spring grows deep into summer now

Everything turns out fine, Zamora, you’ll be there
In time
As a gravity’s breakdown catches our eyes
Falling up, falling up, falling up

Stare into my pondering soul
Make sure the cogs and gears are under control
My robotic is breaking out of my chest
And realizing we all die in the end
As as I’ll love you, a new best friend
Who can defend me out of this place

Zamora, return to town
Turn these cascading smiles to frowns
And in time
Falling up, falling up, falling up
In arms

Could you take my bruised hands,
If this relationship, so perfect, doesn’t last?
You’re beautiful and intricate
Right down to the depth of it
The impulses grow in size
From twenty to a thousand megahertz
In mind

Just could you try
To fall in time, in my hopeless rhymes
Zamora, you can try

I promise to everything you’ve wanted
Only if you could see it you I wanted
All this time
All this time

 

 

“I spent twenty years looking through those damn things!”

Welcome to Tangent A Week, the in-betweens of recording podcasts with us discussing topics outside of film and such.

Lyrics: “Safe By You”

Can you promise not to break?
I’ve seen lovers break before
Can I promise to do the same
In return?
For I’ve been run down before

I yearn to be safe by you
I hope to learn to love by you
You can do right by me
You can set me free

Will you promise to be the same
When the lights dim and cameras fade?
Because I will do the same
For I’ve been fooled by this act
Before you came to my stage

I yearn to be safe by you
I hope you are safe by me
Can we hope to learn to love again?
You can do right by me
I can set you free

Let us be free
From this world’s stage
And all the players in it
Oh, how I yearn to be safe
By you

Hope to learn to love by you
Hope you are safe by me
I can do right by you
We can set ourselves free

I yearn to be safe by you
Hope you are safe by me too
We can set ourselves free

Safe by ourselves

Lyrics: “ane”

You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul
You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul

It’s the late night tying to keep outta sight
From the streets’ harsh reality by sitting here
Stabilize my own mentality and fear
Of you appearing as it only perks
The anxiety, oh how this mind jerks
Thinking of the quirks I loved
Trying to outshine times when you push and shoved

Nadine was the name when it appeared
A kaiju being come to fruition when it reared
Its ugly head, yet it was only grand in bed
Private practices of different positions
Natty Neidhart when it came to submissions
Took advantage of the nocturnal inhibitions
In between my gestures of romance on a roll

You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul
You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul

Darken hallways are a grim reminder
Being driven to death with her dragging me behind her
The balcony was her home, star above kept her alone
A phantom haunted her, paid out of pocket to confront him
Got you held on tightly on his whim
Got her away from the nightmare of scars
She got as a therapeutic lab rat
Making a controller out of her, she’s a Mad Cat

Even if you took out my lungs and clogged my artery
To keep me from beating on and on by doing only me
I dreamed of your true name I sought
That nerd gal pal with happiness always a thought
Because I love you and missed you, as you see, past tense
You’re gone with the tide, you no longer take control
Her actions aren’t part of my toll

You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul
You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul

I scream when I hear your name
Internally though as not to show
The pain and shit
A coronary can come just from
Seeing your eyes
All those times
They remain in rhyme
I remember them all

You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul
You are chaos, a symptom you can’t control
I’ve met the monster, the beast within your soul
