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

Ghost

This song was created for Game of Bands round 176 : "By Our Powers Combined"

Lyrics:

Verse 1
Standing in the middle of the concrete fields
Surrounded by a stonehenge of lifeless steel
Lines of power once fed towers from a time before
Before the war, before the fallout reached our shores

Verse 2
When our ancestors looked up to face their death
And their children carried on with whatever’s left
And eventually rose from our sheltered depths
To take off our gas masks and take a breath

Verse 3
New green grows out from the cracks and splinters
Waking with the spring to follow nuclear winter
Vine-choked skyscrapers now scrape the ground
What once stood tall brought crashing down

Chorus:
We are the end and the beginning!
pretending we are gods!
we are nothing!
we are ghosts! we are ghosts!

verse 4/bridge:
contemplating
insinuating
We had to burn it down

For new beginnings
rising like phoenix
We had to burn this motherfucker down


Chorus:
We are the end and the beginning!
pretending we are gods!
we are nothing!
we are ghosts! we are ghosts!
[Exit]
