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

The Importance of Being Ersatz

This song was created for Game of Bands round 151 : "No Repetition"


It's you, staring back through one acid eye,
on a full cast of burdens that didn't apply.
Stranded in shallows on an outgoing tide,
but if you'd like to listen, I'll throw in a line.

It's not such a highlight to push through the pain
And it's not a reflection to give up the gain
If it's not your problem, then don't stake a claim
on the failures of others who skip out on blame.

Raise up your hackles and go for the heels
Or seek out your soul just to feel what you feel
You owe yourself better when the value is real
and there's more than enough to make you the deal

So burn through their and armor and craft your disguise
and measure their faults with both your good eyes.
And don't ever discount the values of lies
'cause we can't handle honesty at the best of times.
