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

Can't Shake the Thought of Death

This song was created for Game of Bands round 234 : "Triple Dual II: Vocalists"

Lyrics:

Can't you smell the smoke
Rising from the burrows
See it swallow the sun
It seeps in through my nose

I can taste it my mouth waters
I've not eaten in a week

The neighbours in the garden again
Wonder how he gets it to grow
Award sized pumpkins
In soil weeds don't show

Flies are buzzing round my head
I barely move count drops instead

There's a specter screaming
Can't tell if it's just in my head

I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death


Someone was shot last night
Its not been this close before
Crimson flowing down the gutter
Nothing gets cleaned anymore

I guess I should do something
I'm the only one left
Where did all my friends go
I don't remember where they went

There's a reckoning coming
I guess I'll be next

Do you remember waking up
Thoughts of lost yesterdays
Summers lost to the haze
As all our time drips away

I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death

Come on down to the waters edge
Plunge deep take no breaths
Come on down to the waters edge
Plunge deep take no breaths

I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
I can't shake the thought of death
[Exit]
