Hello. Welcome to my world of weirdness. I write about many things so I don't usually post just under one category. I used the screen name "Alpha de la Omega" because the one I wanted to use (Legion) was taken. It is a made up compilation meaning "First of the Last". It has no real significance other than I thought it sounded interesting when I thought of it. My real name is Jim. I have also been called Stephen, Desmond Tristam, Jimmy Franklin, and James Fontenot. I am known as Legion on a few forums around the internet and took the name from the main character of my first concept album/epic poem that I wrote (which shall be posted on this site as well) that ties in with Legion of the Bible. I grew up in Texas, but now reside a bit further north. All my stuff has been copyrighted due to all the bands (none famous yet) I have written for and played with in the past. It was starting to become a hassle of who had what, so I copyrighted them in case of plagiarism. If anyone is interested in using some of the songs, let me know. We'll work something out. Hope you enjoy my stuff.

Hypocrisy
Wrote this after a couple of years of arguing and battling with someone who claimed to be a morally right and strict Christian but who did not act like it at all. The arguments became a song. Enjoy.

Steam
I came up with this song after studying about the Industrial Revolution in college. A band in England I wrote for recorded it and it sounded great the way they did it. They, alas, split up and returned to the states later. Enjoy.

Something I often thought about when younger while sitting in the pew at church. Maybe I'm a heathen. Maybe not.

The Amphibians Came Ashore
A slightly whimsical look at the progression of man. Thought of this while taking a shower many years ago. My muse apparently is a voyuer.

The Skin of Sin reviews
Not for the timid and younger readers. The choruses can be moved around. They're in those positions for the last band I wrote for that was using this song.

Ballots and Bullets Choosing Sides reviews
Another song of mine. It actually started with the message at the end and was built backwards. Don't usually do that. Added the subtitle later after Van Halen recorded a song titled Ballots and Bullets also. Enjoy.

The Independent Nation reviews
This was like much of my stuff originally a song. A bit political but not directed at anyone in particular. It's all about throwing it all to the wind in disgust and becoming one away from the rest.

This is about a fictional battle of the Civil War. Do not know if there really was an Ezekiel Mann or not. There is a Good Hope in Georgia, but I do not know if it was there during the Civil War. This is also a song. Enjoy.
