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

Grey Clouds of Black

This song was created for Game of Bands round 81 : "Smoking"

Lyrics:


Your eyes were so void
They got into me
I cannot forget
How careless you've been!
I tried to move your soul
You told me to let you be
But I wanted you
And you just wanted the cig.
When I tried to talk
And ask, as a kid
I remember you'd shrug
And not even look at me.
Maybe you were afraid
Now that I think of it
But I've never asked
"Daddy could you please quit?"
And when all your concerns
Were to smoke a lil' more
How could you not see
It was you who I cared for
And when I tried to warn you
You called me a bore
I guess you didn't get
I couldn't take it anymore
So all you ever showed
Were the grey ashes
And the thick clouds
Of one, long, typical fault.
And all I ever saw
Through the greyness
And the fog
Was your undeletable flaw.
Do you really think
You could act
As if you were there
While you weren't?
Did you really think
I wouldn't have cared
If your thoughts
Were said or exhaled?
1.27 - 1.50 Chorus
Your eyes are so void
From the coffin I see
I?ll never forgive
What you?ve been!
Now the grey from my childhood
turned to black in your life
I have no empathy
For a man I? despise-!

When all the angels
Took our mom
I thought of
What you would have done
But you just sat there
Smoking alone
And then I knew
That good moments were gone.
So I tried your medicine
Took just a drag
and in few seconds
I felt like a wreck.
As then my mood
Was totally black
I knew it was
The time to go back.
I gathered all my forces
And my courage too:
It was the moment
To get away from you.
I guess you didn?t notice
Or did, for a few
That I wasn?t there
And that all I said was true.
Now you?re free from me
No responsibility
You and your tobacco
And the rest of your life to live
I will not follow your steps
Your fragility
I am a man
With a dream of happy family.

Now that I?ve grown
I see it all
All you ever do
Is just to fall.
Fall and fall again
Up to the end
I will live
While you?re dead.

Your eyes are so void
From the coffin I see
I?ll never forgive
What you?ve been!
Now the grey from my childhood
turned to black in your life
I have no empathy
For a man I despise-!
Why have you been so bad?
You were my only dad.
I?ll never know why
You thought it could be fine.
Did you think it mattered?
Our life was shattered...
You?ll never explain
Why was it so lame?
I tried to reach for you
You could have tried too
Now I can?t justify
This childhood of mine.
Smoke always seemed more
Than what I could afford-
-To be for being loved
And you preferred shoving me off

Now I can't make a change
I won't forgive
I can?t get mad,
You can't even see!
Of anyone's life
You never worried
I don't get why
I should feel sorry

Your eyes are so void
From the coffin I see
I?ll never forgive
What you?ve been!
Now the grey from my childhood
turned to black in your life
I have no empathy
For a man I DESPISE-!
