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

I'm gone

This song was created for Game of Bands round 247 : "Summer Bangers"

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
Staring down the numbers
They don't count down quickly enough
Calendars and clocks
The paperwork it never stops

He said "Have it on my desk by three"
That's fine
She said "I needed that yesterday"
My bad
They said "Can you sign this birthday card"
Yeah sure
They said "Can you order more paperclips?"
Can do...

Can do attitude
Can do with some time off
I'm not in the mood
In my mind I'm already gone

Pre chorus:
I'm gone
To a white sandy beach
With water so clear
I can see the deep
And I'm gone
To lush fields of green
Where email doesn't reach
And I can get some peace

Chorus:
Coming back to earth again
Outta office space, outta office space
Reconnect with the world again
And my place in it

Verse 2:
Staring at the schedule
Responsibilities rack up
Briefings and meetings
From the mornings to the evenings

He said "I need you in early tomorrow"
That's fine
She said "Have you finished that report?"
My bad
They said "Can you skip your break today?"
Yeah sure
They said "Can you order more ink toner?"
Can do...

Can do attitude
Can do with some time off
I'm not in the mood
In my mind I'm already gone

Pre chorus:
I'm gone
To a place in the sun
Where they serve bright drinks
With pineapple in them

And I'm gone
To wide open expanses
Away from the masses
And I can get some peace

Chorus:
Coming back to earth again
Outta office space, outta office space
Reconnect with the world again
And my place in it

Bridge:
Unplug myself
To recharge my battery
Some time away
Some time away from it all

Unplug myself
To recharge my humanity
Some time away
From the grind of it all
[Exit]
