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

An Offer

This song was created for Game of Bands round 219 : "Space Shanties"

Lyrics:

As a young boy I gazed at the sky
Dreamed the dream of an adventurer's life
Was stuck in a world of toil and strife
Till that man came round with an offer
An offer
An offer
Till that man came round with an offer

The engines made a horrible roar
Pushed my stomach right through the floor
Till I couldn't tell down from up no more
And I was off on an adventure
Adventure
Adventure
Off on an adventure

The journeys long space is cold
It's damn lonely but I'm never alone
An untold millions of miles from home
wish I'd never left her
Left her
Left her
I wished I'd never left her

The pay seems good when you grew up poor
But you spend it all in the company store
Still better than dying in the horse head wars
Either way the rich get richer
Get richer
Get richer
Either way the rich get richer

Grand dad died of coal black lungs
A collapse took my father when I was young
Now I'm pulling the ore off a long dead sun
I feel I'm cursed to die here
Die here
Die here
I feel I'm cursed to die here

There's a star burning out in the night
Now barely a twinkle in my eye
If I don't make it back alive
Send my ashes toward her
Toward her
Toward her
Send my ashes toward her.
[Exit]
