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


This song was created for Game of Bands round 225 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes V"


Verse 1
Like a moth to a flame
I'll steer the ship into the lighthouse
Plant my feet on the coast
Stomp my way into a hornets nest

Set up shop in a photo booth
Like a mouse with a head of cheese
Don't want my picture took
Make like a tree and grow

No highway that I can find
Out of breath out of sight and out of gas
Homeward bound and homeless
Lost in my neighborhood

Verse 2
Like a bird in a cage
I'll turn this home into a house
Peak from my perch out the window
See old friends soar freely by

Put pen to paper maps
Plotting Xs to mark the spot
Parade through paradise lost and found
Pleading for a compass

Chorus 2
No roads out of town left
No escape from the heart, from the mind
Onward but spinning wheels
Lost in my neighborhood

Chorus 3
No clear path out of orbit
Global satellites show the route
Colliding debris cascades and I'm
Lost in my neighborhood

Chorus 4
The North Star's light is gone
The sun rises and sets serpentine
road signs turn their backs to us
We're lost in our neighborhoods
