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

In Your Future Life

This song was created for Game of Bands round 166 : "Retrofuturism"


You wake up dreaming of a place in the sky
Your friends were gleaming with titanium eyes
Your wetware team, they wore electrical ties
So where am I
In your future life?

You tell me stories of a boiler room sun
It heats your home, takes almost nothing to run
When winter comes, I hope that I am the one
You hold at night
In your future life

The stars are gleaming like they’re polished chrome
They’re just projections on a giant dome
The carbon sphere, well it looks like home
Am I as bright
In your future life

You take the elevator up to space
You’ve got box seats for the starship race
I guess your life is pretty commonplace
Can I drop by….

We’ll go for drinks a thousand miles underground
We’ll dance to jazz performed in ultrasound
We’ll laugh all night till morning comes around
I’ll be the light
In your future life
