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

Dinonaut

This song was created for Game of Bands round 237 : "Dinosaur"

Lyrics:

Once there was the littlest tyrannosaur
A dreamer, a schemer, a wisher, too
The constellations they called to him
And this dancer he answered their light

Fly, fly, fly away
Reach and find your own way
Fly, fly, fly so high
Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

Every other being, scaled and feathered
Would gather to chatter about their friend
Our T-rex, nonplussed, would only ignore them
And stare at the arc of the darkness above

He gathered bone and ore and rock and tar
Built a vessel to nestle him in heaven
Waved goodbye as a crowd looked on in awe
Our dinosaur stepped aboard for his journey

Fly, fly, fly away
Reach and find your own way
Fly, fly, fly so high
Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

As he sped through the heated atmosphere
His jaw dropped in awe at the sight
Of an asteroid soaring fearsome past
To annihilate the fate of all below

Tiny arms had grabbed for something more
Now floating far amid the stars
The loneliest little tyrannosaur
The last of a past lost to fate

Never let your dreams be dreams
Never stand too long in just one place
You too can be a dinonaut
Hurtling along through outerspace

Fly, fly, fly away
Reach and find your own way
Fly, fly, fly so high
Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky
[Exit]
