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

Dreaming of a world

This song was created for Game of Bands round 135 : " Odd Times and No Rhymes IV"


Verse 1

From every station the same propaganda blares
Elevator anthems written in the key of gray
Thought-terminating jingles rhyming in 4:4
Every verse to the same beat
Every lyric pre-approved

They say it’s all just to protect us from ourselves
That’s what the council passed the law to keep us safe
Now everything sounds so familiar and so stale
No surprises, no upsets
All proceeding just as planned


Dreaming of a world
Where you can’t lock-step in 7/8
Let’s unlock this cage in our own key
And in our own rhythm we can run

Verse 2

From every billboard the same slogans always rhyme
Every show telling you precisely when to laugh
No more more confusion over what what to hear and see
Every choice already made
By those who know what’s best for you

But what if there’s another way to live your life
Combining pieces in new ways unseen before
At any tempo about anything we want
Not tied up in the same 4 chords
There’s no end to what we’ll make
