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

The Long Dark

This song was created for Game of Bands round 154 : "Vocals First II"

Lyrics:

Sleeping faces,
Many years before they’ll wake.
I’m alone out here in the black,
Far from any place to call my home.

So much space yet.
So much space to travel yet.
Irritating waiting here.
I
Must
Have better patience.

I manufacture a thrill,
With so many years to kill.
I speed so,
Recklessly,
Weaving through the dangerous space debris.

Sleeping faces,
Many years before they’ll wake.
Slumber long out into the black,
Far from any place to call home.

So much time, yet.
So much time before they’ll wake.
Sleeping safely, frozen there.
I
Must
Have better patience.

I watch them lying so still,
With so many years to kill.
I wonder,
What my duties will be,
To our alien colony.
[Exit]
