08 - Got The Future Ahead

This song was created for Game of Bands round 200 : "Storyline Supergroups - GoB: Behind The Music"

Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
Had his name screamed by thousands of fans
Now strangers ask "weren't you that guy in that band?"
Got a nice 9 to 5 at an easier speed
But deep down he knows it's not what he needs

So he swallows his pride with a tall glass of scotch
What's he got to lose at this point? Not much
Wife and kid both asleep when he picks up and dials
A number untouched in a hell of a while

(Pre-Chorus)
Here we come, I'm back on my feet again
Can't wait to crank out another song or ten

(Verse 2)

Ol' Smokin' Gun got back in a room
The air was tense, and the mood was doom
Picked up their instruments and and started to jam
Comin' up with ideas, bass thumping, drums slam

Some songs about rockin', a few about lovers
Couple instrumentals and mandatory covers
And after a while, they got back into the groove
Their newest hit came to them and started to move

(Pre-chorus)
Here we come, we're back on our feet again
Can't wait to crank out another song or ten
We can't wait to see all of your faces again
When we're back on the road after God-knows-when

(Chorus)
We've enjoyed the rise and we've felt the crash
Now it's time for us to rise up from the ash
We ain't got much but we've started from less
Long as we're not dead, we've got the future ahead

(Verse 3)
Got themselves a gig in Celebration town
Ready to bring the stadium right down
Their wives and kids in the front seats cheerin' on
The bandmates smiled 'fore they started rockin' on

Some songs about rockin', some more about lovers
Couple instrumentals and mandatory covers
And just as the audience got into the groove
The new hit was blasted, they all started to move

(Pre-Chorus)
Here we come, we're back on our feet again
Can't wait to crank out another song or ten
We can't wait to see all of your faces again
When we're back on the road after God-knows-when


(Chorus)
We've enjoyed the rise and we've felt the crash
Now it's time for us to rise up from the ash
We ain't got much but we've started from less
Long as we're not dead, Got the future ahead


(Bridge)
We'd made the band that night

In that pot of quicksilver

But along the way the magic was lost

We argued, got high, we put success ahead of us

And ahead of you

Through our sanity and vanity, being heathens in disguise

It made doin' what we love feel like a chore

Us trying to be different

Signing pacts, burning fires

Lashing out at eachother

When what we should have been doing was obvious

Making Rock and Roll

As friends, for friends

And for you

Our fans

For the rock and roll

For the rock and roll

For the rock and roll


We ain't got much but we've started from less
Long as we're not dead, we've got the future ahead
[Exit]
