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

Catastrophe

This song was created for Game of Bands round 236 : "Graphic Notation"

Lyrics:

You and me on this mattress is
The last moment you're clearly mine
Tomorrow is the day things change

This fighting we've signed up for
I don't wanna go to war
A series of catastrophes hoping for a victory
Where we can't be us

The dormitory's aglow
With nightmares that have come to show
I'd hold you in my arms if we were closer

Instead I'll stare at your bed
Wishing, praying that things were different
I covet the day "don't ask, don't tell" is behind us

On these paper-thin mattresses
There's no sleep, there's no end in sight
The ghosts we've left behind keep watch

This fighting we've signed up for
Hopeless like never before
A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
But not one for us

Love, I would have called us love
With nothing fair in this love or war
But when's the world ever been fair to two women?

Wish we didn't have to pretend
Waiting for our service to end
Do we not have the right to love each other?

On these paper-thin mattresses
There's just pain and the stench of death
The trauma of our warfare keeps close

This fighting we've signed up for
Hopeless like never before
A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
But not one for us

The thanks we get are just pretty words wrapped in ugly intention
"Live how you want to" but don't you dare to show or tell
Who I love is not a lifestyle pay fucking attention
This in return for giving up my sanity and health

I've no love for defending this country, only for financial securiy
I didn't get out of war to become another casualty
They’re shooting us fucking dead, out on the street
Don’t you dare glare at me you ain't seen what I've seen

(Who do you think you are)
If you want to thank me
(Trying to say who I can't love)
treat us with decency
(I think it's time you fuck off)
Let me hold hands with the other half of me
(Unless you wanna meet your god)

And otherwise you can fuck off
Your arms are down, I'm stirring up the pot
You’re not allowed any other thoughts
GET FUCKING LOST
