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

Lightspeed

This song was created for Game of Bands round 142 : "Only One Instrument II"

Lyrics:

The dust starts to settle down
Light glares off your sweaty head
A sonic scream of gasoline
Did anyone grab the Desert Eagle?

The sun above is beating down
It makes it hard to concentrate
Fifteen past the hour
Nothing so far has gone as planned

We’ve come this far and theres a united sense of failure
Trial after trial and no one could have prepared for this
She smiles wide. She smiles as the whole thing falls to pieces
And we’re left here defeated as the bomb begins to beep

We all exchange a glance around
Light bursts from within your hands
A sudden flash of dust and ash
And a sound they heard for miles

The sunset claims another one
Barricades of flashing lights
A major theft, a crater left
It’s the story of the night

We had a mission and we faithfully stuck to it
Little did we know there was sand inside this microchip
Massive venture, nothing gained except a gaping hole
There may not be a moral but theres a debt thats never paid in full

We’d come this far and there was a light at the end of the tunnel
Then the tunnel began collapsing and everyone was trapped inside
We had a chance but then it blew up in our faces
And I remember my last thought being, “I hope you get away”
[Exit]
