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

The Power - Before Superstitions

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

Lyrics:

With no concept of what
We would become
This pact we sealed in blood
It was up to us, my brothers

These centuries that pass
With us on the run
Show nothing of our crimes
We blend in yet we are none - together

Who bows down
To Gods unknown?
A wasted youth and life I wish
That I’d known better
Whispers in the dark
We were the ones who watched
No questions asked, then it was done
All cloak and dagger

Haunted by their cries
We didn’t recognize
There were no laws of men nor monsters
And now we lie awake
Knowing history won’t speak
Of a time before we were forgotten

Some amongst us knew
Deep down in their souls
That they could not bear the weight and pain
Of this, their cursed burden

They forged their path alone
Abandoned their own names
You can feel them in the shiver creeping, crawling
Through your bones at night

Who breaks out
And cuts their ties
Leaving us behind and runs
From the ones who were their makers?

Haunted by their cries
We didn’t recognize
There were no laws of men nor monsters
And now we lie awake
Knowing history won’t speak
Of a time before we were forgotten

SPEAK NOT
OF THINGS THAT YOU DON’T KNOW (I know more than you ever will)
I AM POWERFUL
AND WILL NOT BE IGNORED
RUN HOME
IF YOU HAVE A HOME AT ALL (We have a home with all our brothers)
I AM FORMIDABLE
AND I WILL LONG ENDURE

OLD MAN (Young man)
OLD MAN (Young man)
WHY
ARE
YOU
THE
VOICE
THAT’S
IN
MY
HEAD

Haunted by their cries
We didn’t recognize
There were no laws of men nor monsters (WHO CALLS FOR THEIR MONSTER?)
And now we lie awake
Knowing history won’t speak
Of a time before we were forgotten (WE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN)
[Exit]
