Urban Sparrows

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

Lyrics:

We urban sparrows
We’re begging for your help
We ask for mercy
For we have sinned
We urban sparrows
The ones who made this mess
We ask for mercy
For we have sinned



We urban sparrows
Stuck in urban traps
We come to offer
Frankincense and myrrh
We send the prayers
To the distant skies
We watch the sermon
Through the coloured glass


We urban sparrows
We want our daily bread
The absolution
To sin no more
We urban sparrows
The ones who made this mess
We urban sparrows
With no one to worship on Sunday



Free from sin, safe from stress
Give us all we can take

Free from sin, safe from harm
Give us all that remains

Free from thoughts, safe from blame
Give us all we can’t have

Free from sin, safe from stress
Give us all we can take


We walk the pavements
Weaker by the day
We scroll the pages
In search of providence
We look for Master
On OnlyFans
A flagellation
Eleven hundred tweets


We watch the sermon
Suffer through the ads
Corrupted heartbeat
The sin of apathy
We urban sparrows
The ones who made this mess
We urban sparrows
With no one to worship on Sunday

final chorus [2:09-3:16]

Free from sin, safe from stress
Give us all we can take

Free from sin, safe from harm
Give us all that remains

Free from thoughts, safe from blame
Give us all we can’t have

Free from sin, safe from stress
Give us all we can take

Stained touch screen, empty gaze
Give us all we can take

Endless days spent in bed
Give us all that remains

Free from thoughts, safe from blame
Give us all we can’t have

Free from sin, safe from stress
Give us all we can take
[Exit]
