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

To Heaven With A Shot

This song was created for Game of Bands round 114 : "Theme to a made-up James Bond film"

Lyrics:

/* INTRO/CHORUS */

the overconfidence
is gonna kill you in the end
the dandy opulence
is a devil masking as your friend

turn it up to eleven now
double oh seven

blow the doors open to heaven
now double oh seven


/* VERSE 1 */

You've all heard of the man
In the tuxedo,
martini in hand
solid gold cufflinks
with secret compartments
when the party is over,
his business can start

He bids the host goodbye,
Two cheeks kissed,
and a sleight of hand
Finishes off his martini, dry
And watches her
tip back her champagne flute

He's off and away
Before she starts to feel nauseous
He's cautious, he'll never
Get caught


/* CHORUS */

that overconfidence
it's gonna kill you in the end
the dandy opulence
a devil masking as your friend
that overconfidence
you're done before you can begin
you're leaving traces and
the zealots are listening in
turn it up to eleven now
double oh seven you gonna
blow the doors open to heaven
with a shot

/* VERSE 2 */

Yes, you've all heard of the man
Last name, first name, last name again
Dozens of gadgets, and dozens of faces
For dozens of girlfriends in dozens of places

Tonight he will lay with a red headed beauty
And while she is sleeping
He's off with the key
To a room in a lair on a faraway island
Guarded by snipers and red laser beams

He left her a note
That says "Call if you need me...
My number is 007"


/* CHORUS, REPEATED */

that overconfidence
it's gonna kill you in the end
the dandy opulence
a devil masking as your friend
that overconfidence
you're done before you can begin
you're leaving traces and
the zealots are listening in
turn it up to eleven now
double oh seven you gonna
blow the doors open to heaven
with a shot
(and it's a given)
[Exit]
