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

Empty Drawer

This song was created for Game of Bands round 178 : "Anti-Love Songs"

Lyrics:

Polarized
Separate beds
Negative angles, faintly wed

I don't lie
You don't speak
Gestures, dangerously antique

I mourn that me I once knew
But I can't get back to the damn that he gave

Step on my right foot
Tread on what's left
I'm not even angry anymore
Can't tell the flowers from the weeds
And who needs such things
When you're an empty drawer

Compromise, oh
It's a trick
Untenable option when you're an ordinary pair of…

Porcupines
At the mention, we prick
Not enough to draw blood, no, we're not yet that sick

I grieve for the truce we once brokered
'Cause at least we could breathe now the killing was over
I vow to quit, but the link's on my fist
And it's inextricable
It's a brick wall

Step on my right foot
Tread on what's left
I'm not even angry anymore
Can't tell the flowers from the weeds
And who needs such things
When you're an empty drawer

You're in the deep end
I'm on the plank, trying to think
But the sharks of ages are circling in the drink
It's a disaster
What could I have been after?
Tying my line to a block on the brink

Solo/Ad-libs

Step on my right foot
Tread on my left
Dancing eventually leads to death
Can't tell the flowers from the weeds
But who needs such things
When you're an empty drawer
When you're an empty drawer
[Exit]
