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

Vivid Dreaming

This song was created for Game of Bands round 206 : "Psychedelic"


Between the many minds
Black beckons in the light
Its ambience, its beveled edge
Light bent in reverence
Drift down the sandy ledge
Emptiness, stretching immense
Nothing filled with everything
Life’s short, but neverending

Cradle the flower, red
Blood crusted, decrepit
Holding high a million grains
Sifting through my hands

Kept searching far too long
Reached the edge of what has gone

Kept on searching far too long
For ego death

Running fast to screeching stop
Red flashes of dread
Hope appears before my eyes
Only to be ripped away

Vivid dreaming happily
Purpose melts into the clay
Solopsistic, draining brain
Purple rain, igniting nihilistic pain
Seems the point of everything
Is love and rage and liberty
I forgot the sun would set
Sunny day to endless grey
Beaming hope
