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

Through The Everglades

This song was created for Game of Bands round 210 : "Random Wikipedia Page"

Lyrics:

Inspired by: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_and_ecology_of_the_Everglades

I ran my hand down the sawgrass
As we walked down the boardwalk
Through the everglades
A land alien yet familiar
Of water and fire
The memory begins to fade

I was too young to understand
The scope of where I am
5000 years in the making
And I'm here just taking
pictures with my cheap vivitar
And I couldn't tell you where they are
But if I could head back south
I think that I would get it now

As we cut through the mangrove
The roots like a spider web
Strain this river of grass
As the boards stain and creak
The birds take to their wings
And we flock en masse

I was too young to understand
The scope of where I am
5000 years in the making
And I'm here just taking
pictures with my cheap vivitar
And I couldn't tell you where they are
But if I could head back south
I think that I would get it now

Now we take this for granted
We drain as we expand
We poison we corrupt
All in the search for land

I was too young to understand
The scope of where I am
5000 years in the making
And I'm here just taking
pictures with my cheap vivitar
And I couldn't tell you where they are
But if I could head back south
I think that I would get it now
[Exit]
