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

Optimism

This song was created for Game of Bands round 209 : "Look Back On 2020"

Lyrics:

Explaining to myself I'm not the man that I once was
Lying to myself just like everyone else does
Our heroes never answer, turn their capes in for a bribe
As we watch the days go by we see the truth among the lies

Where can we go from here?
Call it the worst fucking year
Where can we go from here?

As the rich whores serve more evil, all across their metal floors
And the nation splits itself across the lines of rich & poor
The pot of gold they promised was a lie right from the start
You can take it all away but you cannot replace our hearts

The highclass citizens look down from atop their lofty air
Our lesser plane of existence don't mean much from way up there
Forty six more ways to tell you we are hella poor
It's all come crashing down, don't think I can take much more

We don't know what to do in life, we don't know where we are
I'm fairly sure this shitty year will leave a massive scar
Try to take a breath but it weighs a thousand tons
My consciousness is fleeting and my heart is nearly done

Is this really life? Do I exist? Am I real?
I'm sick of my psychiatrists telling me how to feel
This year has taken such a toll, I don't know what I'm paying for
I feel like I might fold and crash right through heavens door.

The highclass citizens look down from atop their lofty air
Our lesser plane of existence don't mean much from way up there
Forty six more ways to tell you we are hella poor
It's all come crashing down, don't think I can take much more

Where can we go from here?
Call it the worst fucking year
Where do we go from here?
[Exit]
