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

Akkuin akka (Reap what you sow)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 233 : "Lyrics > Vocals > Music"

Lyrics:

When will you lock away the dragon in your mind?
The scars of fire ache inside, the fear I try to hide
You threaten me with promises of tenderness and love,
I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again

Words from silver tongues can never worm into my mind,
Each lie, it falls and shrivels when I see familiar signs,
Tracing my reminders of every time I bled,
I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again
Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
Akkuin akka — Now you know


Forged in darkness,
Strong as perfect steel,
I don’t long for you,
You were never real
Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
Akkuin akka — Now you know
Akkuin akka!
Akkuin akka!

When red horizons rise, it’s time to run and hide,
Your anger, it erupts and it envelops me inside,
The ugly face of man, entitled, rotten flesh,
I buckled and I bent, to leave you here for dead

The twisted hate inside your soul,
It fuels the demon in the hole
This story is a sordid thing,
The demon dressed up like a king
It sounded like a fairy tale,
Aesop’s finest happy fable
Turned into a horror show,
But I’m still here to make it flow

Forged in darkness,
Strong as perfect steel,
I don’t long for you,
You were never real
Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
Akkuin akka — Now you know
Akkuin akka!
Akkuin akka!

Too strong to break again…
Never feel that way again…

I, felt the dark grow inside me
You, rained with roiling spite
Drowned in senseless rage
Burdened with the blame

Shed this dying skin
Shed the numb within
Tears upon my skin
Sobbing deep within…

In your silver suit facade, it’s easy just to see,
The broken bully, scared, alone, unable to be free
Ivory tower up above, so far away from all,
You burst and burn alive, what’s dead will never die


Forged in darkness,
Strong as perfect steel,
I don’t long for you,
You were never real
Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
Akkuin akka — Now you know
Akkuin akka!
Akkuin akka!

Now, you know
[Exit]
