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

Tectonics

This song was created for Game of Bands round 171 : "Elements Part 1 - Earth"

Lyrics:

Vesuvius blew, destroyed Pompeii
Since ‘44, they feared the day
When volcano blows again
A million people could see their end
Live in the shadow and just pretend
That a lovely mountain could be their friend
Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
Mountains detonate (embers glow)
Plate tectonic (overthrow)
Burns right through us (lava flow)
Mt. Ranier in Washington
Mud buries Seattle, nowhere to run
Tacoma hit, 50 megatons
US Northwest is said and done
When volcano blows again
A million people could see their end
Live in the shadow and just pretend
That a lovely mountain could be their friend
Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
Mountains detonate (embers glow)
Plate tectonic (overthrow)
Burns right through us (lava flow)
Mt. Fiji on the isle Japan
Tokyo would be a frying pan
The greatest earthquake seen by Man
Is there a real disaster plan?
Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
Mountains detonate (embers glow)
Plate tectonic (overthrow)
Burns right through us (lava flow)
[Exit]
