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

Nothing is Free

This song was created for Game of Bands round 223 : "Music Imitates Art"

Lyrics:

Artwork "Chaos" by Takashi Murakami 1962

So much to see, so much to buy
Places to go, places to fly
For me to eat others must die (shinderu)
How would you like to make that pile a little higher?

Listen to me, I’ve seen the truth
Take every item at the booth
I buy your time, you sell your youth
Always another product to acquire

What some call virtue some call sin
If it’s too confusing, put it in the bin
With all that’s out there, why look within?
Take all your worries, throw them on the pyre

And I was born with all this might
So why not try to win the fight?
And if you lose, wasn’t I right?
So light the torch and jump into the fire

In life, nothing is free (no)
That’s why it feels so good to be me (yeah)
And while you toil and bleed
I get what I want, I get what I need

For every triumph blood was spilt
And I’m incapable of guilt
You hold the blade, I hold the hilt
You know I’m right, quit calling me a liar (liar)

And no one else is wondering why (why)
I get to laugh, you get to cry (aw)
They look in awe, up at the sky
And ain’t I something to admire?

So give it up, follow the plan
Cause after all, you’re just a man (nothing more)
Just give me everything you can (yeah)
So you can push me just a little higher

And now you’re empty, fill the hole
Pretend you have a little control
But don’t forget, I own your soul
And I always gets everything that I desire

In life, nothing is free (no)
That’s why it feels so good to be me (yeah)
And while you toil and bleed
I get what I want, I get what I need
