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

Something's Wrong

This song was created for Game of Bands round 145 : "Track Must Build to a Climax at Some Point II"

Lyrics:

The note in 12 pt. Times New Roman
Printed on beige instead of off-white
Reading Error Report: Status Urgent
Please implement changes tonight!

Tucked away in the back of the office
In the wrong folder on the wrong shelf
The warning unread and unheeded
Not a sign that something wasn’t well

But hey now, nobody’s perfect
The best of plans can unfurl
Come on, what’s the worst that can happen
Not like it’s the end of the world

Then the suits who commissioned the software
Sent their status report to command
The defense grid exceeds expectations
Free of errors, progressing as planned

Plugged into every satellite system
The program scanned the skies for a threat
When the sirens went off: status urgent
Foreign missile detected: code red

But hey now, nobody’s perfect
The best of plans can unfurl
Come on, what’s the worst that can happen
Not like it’s the end of the world

Then the man with his hand on the button
Prayed as he primed the counter-attack
Not a clue there was nothing to counter
Just a few ones and zeroes off track

But hey now, nobody’s perfect
The best of plans can unfurl
Come on, what’s the worst that can happen
Not like it’s the end of the world
[Exit]
