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


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


Attention! I am a straight razor cold against your skin
The urge to jump from the ledge of a 50 story building
I am your call to action, I am your fear
The sand on your tongue when she's too beautiful to approach
The voice that tells you that settling is better than being lonely
You loath me but I push you, the check to the balance of your life
I own you, force you out of bed with the spectre of poverty and uselessness
So hate me for the shots you don't take, love me for everything you have

I put the bullet in the chamber at Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Orlando, Vegas
I can make some see differences in others as acid bubbles on their skin
Find the indignant beating their chest, you'll find my scent like a secret cigarette
I'm chloroform for your emotions cause showing who you really are scares you the most
Oh but when you overcome my devices, it is your sweetest victory
Palm sweat is my last defense and if it's there you know the battle is over
I am your greatest protector and your strongest weakness
I am a straight razor
