The Cost of Being Free

This song was created for Game of Bands round 212 : "Sci-Fi Aesthetics"

Lyrics:

[Intro: Tomble2000]
In the beginning there was peace
The world lived in a state of harmony
Balance was the silent ruler keeping a watchful eye
A faceless entity residing in everyone
Chaos, on the other hand, had a face...

Ice cold feelings, watching me
Clouds of darkness envelop all I see
Smog stream rises as chimneys fall
All I have is within us, everyone and all
Watching raiders, fear their movement plunder lands
Time ticks on golden cogs through each second of the hands

The cost is nothing
The debt is paid in full
The cost of everything
Is only paid at the end
The cost of happiness
The cost of fear
The price of freedom
Is never clear

Sounds that echo out of sirens, ring in my head
A fall is upon us, the wind whispers things she once said
The train that clatters pulls me down
A shade of loss bestows us in its frown
All that cleans us, all that washes true
Time ticks on golden cogs through each minute as it flew

The cost is nothing
The debt is paid in full
The cost of everything
Is only paid at the end
The cost of happiness
The cost of fear
The price of freedom
Is never clear

[Interlude: Tomble2000]
The cogs and the machines that powered the city of Frailing were well-kept and powerful
They tick with a precise measure that was a comfort to those who heard it
No one considered that these cogs might one day stop
Some told stories of a time before the peace
A time when life was balanced on the edge of a knife
But these were just stories that were told to frighten children
...Stories that were closer than anyone could imagine

[solo]

The cost is nothing
The debt is paid in full
The cost of everything
Is one we only pay at the end
The cost of happiness
The cost of Fear
The price of freedom
Is never clear
[Exit]
