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

Am I Awake Yet?

This song was created for Game of Bands round 162 : "Multi-Part Songs"

Lyrics:

Babe made of whims and bones
Lain out alive
Born out in ordinary times
He cries

"Don't leave me here
Alone
I'm not myself
How could I know?
And should I find
A mirror mild
It may not frame
A child"

As he made ways
Seldom scrutinized
He could hardly leave a day's beliefs unanalyzed

"Am I awake yet?
Is this final?
Will my eye deceive me
When I see me?"

Dream of what you need to become
"Am I awake yet?"
Fire in the clay when you're done
"Is this final?"
Settle on an elegant one
"Will my mind deceive me?"
Perceive yourself and try not to run
"When I see me"

As he shaped up
Sure identity
He could hardly spare a day's accounts for memory
When he comes to
From philosophizing
He may be surprised to find that life has passed him by

May he wake well
To the looking glass beside
And dare to face
The face he never could describe

No one will come searching
If you decide to hide again
Better then to set stone
And be someone alone

"I must be awake
In this gentle light I see
I'm an ordinary man
How could I know I'd be?"

"I must be awake
In this gentle light I see
I'm an ordinary man
How could I know I'd be?"
[Exit]
