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

Confession from the Hanging Tree

This song was created for Game of Bands round 127 : "Trapped in the Closet"

Lyrics:

Verse
It was a hot summer night, the bar was swinging
Pour another beer, just got me thinking
One more shot to wet the whistle please
Take another sip and it slips down with ease
Damn that chick making eyes across the room
Seems like an idea but now I’ve see the sun rise too soon
She struts round room with her high heels on,
I gotta get outta this place, gotta get gone
Find my hat and boots trying to feel loose
Whiskey breath mixed with yesterday's juice
The door handle twitches and she screams out his name
Just a minute darling, Shit just got insane

Chorus
Am I in or out,
Closet or the cupboard
Hide my truth
Families a bitch it's true
Whooo Whoo
Trapped for another day
Whooo Whooo
Trapped waiting for you

Verse
door swings open, there's a shotgun in his hands
Start to fidget but this guys backed up to make a stand
Preachers and god's love, she needs another fix
Another fine mess while I’m trying to hit the bricks
Both of them now making eyes towards me,
The strangest feelings that have ever been leveled I seen
A new situation, and a lot of unknowing
There is a lot to learn today about where this is going
She tells him he did it first, a day break drinker making moves
At another guy walking tall. Standing here footloose
Excuse me fellas, I think that I am done
I’m sorry there bubba but I think that’s our mum


Chorus
Am I in or out,
Closet or the cupboard
Hide my truth
Families a bitch it's true
Whooo Whoo
Trapped for another day
Whooo Whooo
Trapped waiting for you

Verse
Never been confused before, but now I need more
Sister, brother, cousins my jaw hits the floor
Make my way home to have my girl calm this mess down
But when I get there, another guy is floating around
She tells me that she knows me, that this is a mistake
A funny way of showing it, shit give me a break
Tells me they got the hoedown while I was trucking elsewhere
Man alive I got to push my wife, push the lover to share
Talking to the birds and stinging with the bees
Our Genealogical tree is a straight line going from A to B

Bridge
Texas ain't that far, with her tattoo of a rose
Still leaves me bleeding by the side of the road
A lover in the closet and a new man in my bed
Afraid of where to look till all of us are dead
The preacher and the minister The Ladies and the child
A man who lay with me our life just got wild
Pushing life to make sense time and time again
This is not going to stop, there ain’t any end
Long gone and fancy free
my brothers little sister is making eyes at me
Trapped in the closet of my family tree
Another day, another time is too much to see
It’s what you get from cheap whiskey and cheaper wine
Another beer for the road, swig it down and it’s all fine
(pause)
That’s it, time to go.

Outro Chorus
Am I in or out,
Closet or the cupboard
Hide my truth
Families a bitch it's true
Whooo Whoo
Trapped for another day
Whooo Whooo
Trapped waiting for you
[Exit]
