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

The Revolutionary

This song was created for Game of Bands round 33 : "Punk as Fuck!"

Lyrics:



Verse 1

He knows all the safest places
To read books by candlelight
Now he writes his own in secret
Waiting for the time to strike

So he pens his manifesto
And he takes it to the streets
Shouts what others only whisper
Daring to disturb the peace

Chorus

History has no cares
For all your fleeting fears
Whole worlds unravel at the seams
For revolutionary dreams

Verse 2

Well he stirs up a few riots
And he wakes the underground
As the spirit of defiance
Sweeps the country town by town

Riots turn to revolution
And the coup goes just as planned
With a newborn constitution
For a new and better land

Chorus

Verse 3

In the songs he was a hero
They would raise a glass and cheer
Now those songs have darker lyrics
Where they think his spies can?t hear

In the streets he hears them shouting
One more riot to be quelled
If he regrets only one thing
It's the he taught them too well

Chorus

Outro

He knows all the safest places
To read books by candlelight

[Exit]
