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

Smoke/Mirrors

This song was created for Game of Bands round 250 : "Mods vs. Everyone"

Lyrics:

Mirrors break in
showers of silver
Shards that cut deeper than
skin we envision what it's like
who would we have become?

Let them rain like
sharp steel kisses on my skin
Maybe then I will recall
Who I once was and my promise
Wishing I
could turn back time
and repent

Roads less traveled by
Littered with shards of better lives
Woes uncovered by
My own reflection

Roads unravelled by
Ceasing life in denial
Smoke and mirrors, lies
Broken at last

For how long...?

Seeping from my spine like water
If a man was born to be kind
Then why am I still here?
Is this
a joke to you
Or am I?

Who would I be if I weren't a monster
Would there be anything left?
Could I (then) take a look at myself?
Would it make
A difference for me
at all?

Roads less traveled by
Littered with shards of better lives
Woes uncovered by
My own reflection

Roads unravelled by
Ceasing life in denial
Smoke and mirrors, lies
Broken at last
For how long...?
[Exit]
