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

A Willing Sacrifice

This song was created for Game of Bands round 230 : "Halloween V"

Lyrics:

Oh how I burned at each mistake
Knuckles bruised, rapped awake
Your poison coursed in my veins
Heavier than mortal chains

Hung myself from the gallows tree
I sold my soul to buy your dreams
I cried in the night, I cried for more
For your shadow to lay dark my door

I gave it all
In the night
I gave it all
I gave you my life

I crossed myself and hoped to die
Like I was some sacrifice
A willing sacrifice
A willing sacrifice

I watched each domino fall
Felt every pin pierce the doll
Forever cold in the burning light
To these blue black eyes

Still taste the ash on my tongue
Every curse held in my lungs
Barely choking out the notes
The bible belt around my throat

I gave it all
In the night
I gave it all
I gave you my life

I crossed myself and hoped to die
Like I was some sacrifice
A willing sacrifice
A willing sacrifice

Hung myself from the gallows tree
I sold my soul to buy your dreams
[Exit]
