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

Choking on Nothing

This song was created for Game of Bands round 248 : "Odd Times And No Rhymes VI"

Lyrics:

Rigged up, racket round neck
Chained throat, dragging me down to die
No breath, desert of dead last
Bone dry, mummified for life

Waste not, wanting a new go
Piss broke, all the doors are bolted shut
Up top, in the rarified room
This game is a joke they tell

Why court danger?
Lies do wonders

Packed in, record hot flesh
Burned off by better men self-proclaimed
Serfs up, floating in tide
Face down, supplicate for grace

Why use torture?
Sell more scratch-offs

Why keep working?
For some pretense

Neck deep into debt
Hung out to forget
Oh dear god no, I broke the rule again
Whipped back into shape
Scar tissue will not fade
Don't hurt no more, but the lesson stays

Lick salt off the floor
Can't beg for no- seconds
I eat my fill of dust and promises
So, wasting away
Limp day after- night
To drug my jealous peasantry

Why use poison?
Feed us dreamstuff
(X3)

[Simultaneous]
Born into the dirt
Sand blasted by shame
Crook back rakes it in
Bent back wallows
(x3)
[Exit]
