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

Open Grave and Lampshades

This song was created for Game of Bands round 12 : "A Murder Ballad or a Song Describing a Crime"

Lyrics:

I pushed my knife into her chest
I felt her give up her final breath
I closed her eyes held her as I wept

She was the one and only woman
who loved me for exactly who I am
But I was scared that she?d leave again

But now she?ll be always here with me
And my soul can finally be at peace
perfect here forever I believe

Burlap sacks nine masks
Forever in a grin
Open graves and lamp shades
The police are closing in
Slit wrists loose lips
Pressed against my skin
Bed posts old ghosts
The police are closing in
(The police are closing in)

I?m blind, closed eyes I?ll undo this crime
I just have to bring her back to life
And then she?ll be my blushing bride

Burlap sacks nine masks
Forever in a grin
Open graves and lamp shades
The police are closing in
Slit wrists loose lips
Pressed against my skin
Bed posts old ghosts
The police are closing in
(The police are closing in)

Burlap sacks nine masks
Forever in a grin
Open graves and lamp shades
The police are closing in
Slit wrists loose lips
Pressed against my skin
Bed posts old ghosts
The police are closing in
(The police are closing in)
[Exit]
