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

We Gave it a Name

This song was created for Game of Bands round 246 : "Evil"

Lyrics:

I am not anchored to anything true any more
No hearts with warmth in them will ever again cross my door
All the bridges and the books that I have burned
Lit my way down a dark path and I will not return
I can not change
Hand is in glove
Evil is not the opposite of good
It is the absence of love

We were so desperate to explain
The fear, the spite, the shame, the pain
The mystery this misery we caused each other again and again
It defied understanding
We could not comprehend something
So abstract, so abhorrent, so insane
So we gave it a name


I'm the serial killer, you know my name you’ve seen my picture
Im the one they write the books about
But I am in your neighbour, and looking at you in the mirror
I live in fear and grow strong in self doubt
I have killed as many millions
With vitriol as with indifference
I feed hate to those who can not get enough
You may say that I'm the opposite of good but I thrive in the absence of love


It’s easy to use me to name your enemy
Like watching a movie, where I’m defeated in act three
But here’s the reality, there is no cavalry
Coming to confront me, and force me to my knees

We were so desperate to explain
The fear, the spite, the shame, the pain
The mystery this misery we caused each other again and again
It defied understanding
We could not comprehend something
So abstract, so abhorrent, so insane
So we gave it a name
[Exit]
