Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Compulsion

This song was created for Game of Bands round 126 : "80's Science Fiction"

Lyrics:

In the grim dystopic future of 198X
An unfamiliar terror has a range of strange effects
As upon our home, from among the reach of gods
Alight a fleet of pulsing pods

You can feel them sleeping inside
Their minds are probing out
They're sensing doubt
Compulsion draws us near
And soothes our rightful fear
Intent seems clear

A fate has come along
The hour’s late, the sins are strong
No time to burn away the haunted dreams of yesterday

Human hands to split them apart
If they don't look scary
(Be wary)
Their eyes of silver lure us closer (closer)
Closer to the flame
(Closer to the flame)

A fate has come along
The hour’s late, the sins are strong
No time to burn away the haunted dreams of yesterday

Our pulses weaken, steady
Who knew our thoughts were so ready
We pride ourselves of will, but all we've learned to do is kill

You can feel them peeking inside
Their minds arrive as kings
They pluck our strings
Your body stands at guard
Protecting these fair angels from the stars
(From the stars)

A fate has come along
The hour’s late, the sins are strong
No time to burn away the haunted dreams of yesterday

An end has come along
The ego fled, the lines are drawn
Designs are burned away
Consumed by what they say
You will not be afraid of dreams today
[Exit]
