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


This song was created for Game of Bands round 210 : "Random Wikipedia Page"


got involved when he was young
no more years then seventeen
just a boy with no intentions
of going places or finding peace

he grew up knowing no one cared
about the way he earned his keep
keeping tabs on expectations
he made his way by transferring

And the money came right to him
if only they saw what was left unseen
The way he held his head so low
Directionless face behind a screen

a painless day in the early hours
the strain had finally crushed his mind
that cross he wore, got to his head
the unspoken guilt had crossed the line

looking back to those early years
to when that trap came naturally
he’d be better if he knew the pain
wouldn’t come with any amnesty

because no one cared about his name
or gave a damn about his history
maybe they’ll never know his life
was brokenness and transferring
