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

Alive Again

This song was created for Game of Bands round 107 : "Queen-esque"

Lyrics:

Freddie is looking back from the afterlife at us honoring him with this round of Game of Bands.

VERSE 1

Walking out, an empty net
But Pluto guards the etiquette

Dreaming nice, once again
Released of chains now and then

Some are high, Some are low
We all live out this puppet show

CHORUS

Looking out this window view
Gods can get a better view
I'm alive, I'm alive

Satisfied? Stratified!
Because of you I'm magnified
I'm alive, I'm alive

VERSE 2

Florentines
Block the gate
Won't you please just abdicate?

Something's wrong
Can I hide?
Feeling like I'm crucified

Again I dream
Lifted up
Drinking from this scarlet cup

CHORUS

Looking out this window view
Gods can get a better view
I'm alive, I'm alive

Satisfied? Stratified!
Because of you I'm magnified
I'm alive, I'm alive

VERSE 3
Walking out, an empty net
Pluto guards the etiquette

Dreaming nice, once again
Released my chains both now and then

Some are high, Some are low
We all live this puppet show

Again I dream, Lifted up
Drinking from this scarlet cup

CHORUS

Looking out this window view
Gods can get a better view
I'm alive, I'm alive

Satisfied? Stratified!
Because of you I'm magnified
I'm alive, I'm alive

----------

He walks out and there's an empty net. It's a reference to his music used as sports anthems, as well as hardly any new good music around (he could easily score with a new hit).
Pluto guards the fourth circle of hell in Dante's inferno. Which is greed. It would be greedy of him to demand another chance at making music.
So he has to depend on others to make music to honor him, and when he does he can dream again (he references dreaming in songs like A Winter's Tale).
"Some are high some are low" referring to hearing people try to imitate him off key. He's a puppet because he's not in control, neither is anyone watching someone use them as inspiration.
The chorus basically explains the song, he's watching us and living through us. Is he satisfied? He's stratified (split in a hierarchy of layers).
But he's still remembered, and magnified.
Florentines are in the sixth circle of hell which is heresy. Which is really what we are doing.
He'd like that wall to come down, but can't from where he is.
Some of what we will be doing (maybe all) won't live up to Queen, so he's feeling crucified.
But he decides to spin it positive, he's dreaming again (as he did lyrically) and drinking from a scarlet cup (in which spring is contained, rebirth).
