The Lost

This song was created for Game of Bands round 109 : "Wall of Sound"

Lyrics:

[Chorus 1]0.41 to 1.05

Left out of mind, a father’s shame
A friend lies in a box of pine
They hid the arm, the one that’s maimed
And you, gone in the morning fog

[Verse 1]1.06 to 1.46

I’m still here, where else would I be
Alone now, left me so alone
When all I’ve known now wants to flee
You’re gone and she’s just not breathing
I scream in every dream I have
Silent words won’t stop you leaving

[Chorus 1] 1.47 to 2.12

Left out of mind, a father’s shame
A friend lies in a box of pine
They hid the arm, the one that’s maimed
And you, gone in the morning fog

[Verse 2]2.13 to 2.33


I’ll change, I’ll be a better man
I’ll disappear if you’re with me
I’ll love you any way I can
I’ll chase after all that’s left
Chase after everything I had
Try and get her out of that chest

[Verse 3]2.34 to 3.05


I barely have the strength to move
How would I dig out a coffin?
As always, I wander these rooms
I will stay, where else to stay
Somewhere, pathless, pathetic
I’ll laugh about back in the day

[Bridge]3.06 to 3.34

(Barely audible laughter in the background)
Left me in the grey dust
Beside the old graveyard
I’ll leave you if I must
Inherit her scarred arm
Forget all their faces
And do them no harm

[Verse 4]3.35 to end

I would never harm someone dear
Never lie to them, never die
But now there is no-one here
And there’s really no use caring
About the world that’s only me
About a world that I’m not sharing

[Chorus 2]

All that’s dear will forget my name
All that’s dear must be forgotten
I’ll be nowhere else all the same
And laugh about back in the day

[Outro]

(Louder laughter)
[Exit]
