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


This song was created for Game of Bands round 136 : "Minimalism II"


Looking around in my life
Buried in belongings
Surrounded by possessions and strife
I wanna go back to the start
Another ding, another buzz
Attention stolen by the thief in my pocket
Why can’t we get away

What happened to playgrounds and laughter
Where have we gone, now chained to our things
Everywhere we are, are we connected
Tethered to shiny objects demanding our attention

The words are too strong, so we go to bars
The bars aren’t strong enough, so we start wars
Wars with others, and wars with ourselves
A life in conflict is no life at all

Bank account running dry
House overfilled
Searching for satisfaction all my life
Never finding
Like a child with no impulse control
Seeking gratification around every corner
Why can’t we stop
