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

Satisfied

This song was created for Game of Bands round 128 : "Chaos"

Lyrics:

7 AM
Waking up feeling like this again
Spent the whole night feeling discontent
Searching for the order on which I depend

I tried to pretend
That this notebook and pen weren’t my best friends
Scrawling down thoughts until I was spent
Crawled into bed just to stay up until dawn again

Twenty to noon
Copying down arbitrary figures from inside this cube
Thinking about everything but what I’m doing
Even if I finish I can’t leave this room

Until the late afternoon
When I can head back to my lonely room
Walking through the crowds and the toxic fumes
Every step a little closer to my tomb

I won’t be satisfied, by
This mediocre life, I’ll
Reject the path they chose for me

After my rest
Thoughts bubble up that I just cannot suppress
Problems I still have not addressed
Dismiss and ignore it’s what I do best

Consumed by stress
Keeping me up like a man possessed
Wondering how I got into this mess
Feeling like my heart’ll jump out of my chest

I won’t be satisfied, by
This mediocre life, I’ll
Reject the path they chose for me

And I will try to fight this
The path that I decide is
Within my reach, just wait and see


I won’t be satisfied, by
This mediocre life, I’ll
Reject the man I chose to be

But can I even fight this
Everything that I’ve tried is
Out of my reach, eternally
[Exit]
