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

Behind the Veil

This song was created for Game of Bands round 111 : "Avant-Garde"


Behind the Veil

It all started with the wheel and the compass
No one knows quite what it’s leading to
Never know where we’re going

Painted caves and jewelry, monuments and agriculture
Mapping out the starry night above us
Probing DNA, weighing quantum physics
All of our years we’ve been so bewildered
By our own inventions

Doesn’t anyone know where we’re going to?
Doesn’t anyone know what this is?
After all of the time we’ve been stumbling around
After all of the time we’ve spent fighting
There are so many things that you can’t comprehend
When you don’t even know who you are

It’s a peaceful Christmas morning
Something’s stirring in the undergrowth
Now it’s rising up from the shadows
Here it comes, our final creation

What are these strange intelligences,
These malevolent alien creatures?
Doom is fast approaching
Nobody sees what’s beyond the forefront
Nobody knows what’s behind the veil
Of the avant garde
