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

Tombs Beyond Time

This song was created for Game of Bands round 181 : "Songs that aliens would listen to"

Lyrics:

Beneath the surface,
I feel you getting closer,

Sweeping sands aside as you progress,

It seems your pulse betrays you
as I take my long-awaited ragged breath

Sandstone walls,
discussions long forgotten,
frozen in time.
dancing plasma casts the torchlight,
mocking our locked-away lives

Skulls of science,
Wrappings of rage,
Take my pain from me,
And Let me escape

Hounds for heads,
Precious metals pressed upon my grave
Devices far beyond your comprehension
decided to forsake my final days

Buried Alive,
beneath the tombs beyond time
Throbbing, pulsing, realign,
among your precursor's vast eternal veins

Out here, where nothing matters,
Where this world, is just a number on a page,
You find that all the answers lie beneath you
In tombs of long forgotten,
trans-human brains

The time has come for us to rise,
A vessel suited to our needs arrives
You lean upon the crucial coded wall
Sarcophogi now open wide and nano-cells can recombine
I rise
I rise
I rise!

Buried Alive,
beneath the tombs beyond time
Throbbing, pulsing, realign,
As I reclaim my destined rite

My future’s back, and now you’re trapped
I must repair what should’ve never been done
The final act of a zero-sum hack,
That will finally send me back

Home.
[Exit]
