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

Burn it all

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

Lyrics:

Your sweet desire first lit this fire
But it’s my turn now to burn it down
October winds will send you higher
One match to catch the devil’s crown

Your laugh a gasp so quickly turned
So like the knife beneath your ribs
Your smile and guile so quickly burned
The night alight with what we lived

Now I lay you down to rest
Until there’s only ashes left

Look at how we all fall down
Your lies could make the world go ’round
Fade to black, the last dissolve
Not sorry, love, to burn it all

Your fear it tastes so tender dear
Like marmalade and summer snow
The flames reclaim your every tear
As I bask in the last ember glow

Your cries and lies full silence now
As fire consumes the liar whole
There’s beauty to this crackling bow
I take to rake your tattered soul

Now I lay you down to rest
Until there’s only ashes left

Look at how we all fall down
Not sorry, love, to torch the ground

Your desolation made immolation
The heat a treat for my trick heart
Now dust to dust your desperation
I always finish what I start

Now I lay you down to rest
Until there’s only ashes left
[Exit]
