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

Rising rebel

This song was created for Game of Bands round 221 : "Only One Instrument III"

Lyrics:

Look, look, look, look
She’s got her nose down buried
Deep in someone else’s book

Words, words, words, words
Falling from their mouths
Like the nests of carrion birds

Everything known unknown again
Circling back around the bend

How long before she figures it out?
How long before she gets her head out?
How long before she gets out?
How long to remove the lingering doubt?
How long to get the blood out?
How long before she gets out?

Get her out
Get her out
Get me out

There’s a story here never willing to be told
Perpetuated by the old getting older—spinning gold
How the hell did we let it get this far?
Who never took their hand out the cookie jar?

We the people making haste
Running for our lives in this ever-losing race
Looking for ways to let ourselves out
Never stopping to wonder or doubt

Who started this damn game in the first fucking place?

Who let the Riot Grrl die on the vine?
Cutting up emotions into neat little lines
Swallowed or snorted to make the lies honey
Anything—and everything—to hasten that money

And now we cry out that the last bit’s too much?
Everyone sighing with their pearls in a clutch
Where were you a decade ago or two or five?
Why did it take this long for you to be alive?

And why didn’t you ever ask how to stop this fucking race?

Get her out
Get her out
Get me all the way out of here

Get me out
Get us out
Get everyone out of here

Get me out
Get us out
Let’s get all the way out of here

Get out
Get out
Get out...
[Exit]
