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

Liminal cities

This song was created for Game of Bands round 222 : "Steal From Public Domain Classical Music"

Lyrics:

Verse

The memory of this place
Belongs to everyone at once
But they can't quite put a finger
On what about it feels so wrong
It could have sprung out the ground
10 years since the construction hit
Someone remembers before it came
But they don't like to think about change

Chorus

Nobody lives here
They just pass through
No river or oceans
There's no beauty in the view
Identical homes
As far as can see
An illusion of safety
In conformity

Verse

Once there where forests
That covered the land
But now the only trees exist
to stop land value going down
You can see movement
Where no motion exists
And the town keeps breathing
Though it's long since dead

Chorus

Nobody lives here
They just pass through
No river or oceans
There's no beauty in the view
Identical homes
As far as can see
An illusion of safety
In conformity

Bridge

Chorus

Nobody lives here
They just pass through
No river or oceans
There's no beauty in the view
Identical homes
As far as can see
An illusion of safety
In conformity
[Exit]
