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

Screen Stares Black

This song was created for Game of Bands round 152 : "Sad Songs II"

Lyrics:

The water upon dry ground
A spreading smear of hollow thought
As the water trickles by

The passing time dressed in grey
As light follows the striking stain
And water passes by

Caressing calls echo home
Urgency of longer hold
This daylight dream is filled with mindlessly digging holes

A screen stares black as an eager soul
A screen stares back as an eager hole
A screen stares black as a wanting soul
A screen stares as water passes by

A screen stares black as a wanting soul
So uninviting, away from home
This screen stares back as a sordid hole
To pour a life into and hope
The screen stares back as an eager soul
With bedroom eyes and shattered walls
The screen stares, as water takes its hold

The water upon dry ground
A spreading smear of hollow thought
As the water trickles by
[Exit]
