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

The Race

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

Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
Welcome to the Race,
another waste behind the wheel
Helmets cracked in mud,
and Reflections laced in steel

Take another token,
Why don't you put your credits down?
Now your feet decide your fate,
As we torque that freeway round

(Chorus intro, much brighter, in harmony)
The sun will
rise upon
a golden quilt of lanes,

A hundred
thousand homes,
and the winner joins their ranks


(Verse 2)
Skill no more than mettle,
Scars on hands and teeth,
The curses I've sustained
no less than skin upon the street,

I will burst out of the shadows
Leave the towers far behind
I will climb out of this neon filth
By the strength of my own hide

Pull right up and knock you down
Around each and every play
Ask me Do I deserve it?
Hell Yeah I’ve earned my way

Leather whipping past the tar
As flames rip up my rear
I’ll take my knocks, like I give a flock
You’re just another early grave

(Chorus, much brighter, in harmony)
The sun will
rise upon the
most Bountiful of feasts

A hundred
thousand bones,
Lie carried by the breeze

(Bridge)
If only every one of them
Would work as hard as these
Life would be as easy for you
As it is for we

(Interlude with vocals. Yeah, officially not an interlude, but how would you call this?)
We want to see the blood,
To spark your inner light,
To enforce the natural order,
And reward the truest might

(Another bridge?)
A simple truth-be-told,
The world won’t hand things out
So fight for what is yours tonight
And really make it count

Verse 4, Reprise
Welcome to the Race,
another waste behind the wheel
Helmets cracked in mud,
and Reflections laced in steel

Take another token,
Why don’t you put your credits down?
You’ll die before I’d let you steal my crown

I’ll win that Golden Race,
And I’ll take my rightful prize,
I’ll leave this wretched place ‘cuz I’m alive...
[Exit]
