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

Breath

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

Lyrics:

In the reeds
Entangled fantasy, my mind is bound
Waterlogged, drowning
Finding breath

It’s clear to me
The proud oak tree was once seed
Poisoned, dying
Baby’s breath

In black, the need
Blindly feeling the everything of nothing
Pressure, choking
One more breath

Every time I hold you,
You’re nothing like what I want this to be

I would dream
My soul in you, euphoria I would keep
Fingertips, tracing
Shallow breath

Icy crash, reality
The sun I’ll never see, as I’m drowning
Grasping, reaching
Hold my breath

A welcome breach
I’m finally red-blooded, gushing
Sinking, leaving
To start afresh

A brand new breath,
This nightmare ends,
Cleansing myself, renewing my soul
This mortal plane I’ve left

[Exit]
