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

Three Inch Pants - Twilight of the Stick Gods (A Journey Begins)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 251 : "Randomly Generated IV"

Lyrics:

Uze apha phambi kwam, (You have come here before me,)
ngokuba wonakele. (because you are broken.)
Awuyazi into oyifunayo, (You know not what you need,)
ungazi ukuba yintoni elandelayo. (know not what comes next.)
Andiyi kukubonisa indlela, (I will not show you the way,)
njengoko ucinga ukuba ufuna. (as you think you want.)
Uya kuzifumana ngokwakho, (You will find it yourself,)
uya kuba ngumkhokeli wakho. (you will be your own guide.)
Njengoko usiya usiba yinto engento, (As you fade into the nothingness,)
njengoko ingqondo yakho ibhadula kwenye indawo. (as your mind wanders elsewhere.)
Ndiza kuba lapha, ndilinde, (I will be here, waiting,)
ukuba ufumane indlela yakho kweli hlabathi. (for you to find your path in this world.)

Wait
No
But I'm so afraid

Qaphela izinsizi ezizayo, (Beware of the coming tribulations,)
yizinkinga ozidalile, (they are hurdles you've created,)
ekhanda lakho. (in your own mind.)
Qaphela izinsizi ezizayo, (Beware of the coming tribulations,)
yizinkinga ozidalile, (they are hurdles you've created,)
ekhanda lakho. (in your own mind.)

I'm sorry for what I've done
I had to survive, or I'd be gone
I lash out at everyone
I must learn how to go on
I'm scared of being undone
I can't bear the weight of being alone


I cannot change, I cannot change
I cannot change, I cannot change
How can anyone?

Accept yourself and be free


Uhamba nolwazi oluthile, (You leave with some knowledge,)
kodwa uzobuya uma uthanda... (but you will return if you want...)
ukuqonda ngokweqiniso. (to truly understand.)
ukuqonda ngokweqiniso. (to truly understand.)

I still don't understand
How do I deal with all this pain
I can't go through this again

I still don't understand
How do I deal with all this pain
I can't go through this again

Uvuka, ukuqonda ngakumbi kunangaphambili. (You wake up, understanding more than before.)
Kodwa waphukile, njengoko kulindelekile, igorha eliselula. (But you are still broken, as expected, young warrior.)
Indlela yakho isandula ukuqalisa, uhambo lwakho lude. (Your path has just started, your journey will be long.)
