Burning Tower

This song was created for Game of Bands round 254 : "Dream Sequence"

Lyrics:

Surrounded by a great field of fire,
was a shelter, an old shattered spire.
From the rubble and some barren dirt,
by some power, a flower bud spurt.
It grew in size, and bore a human face.
It had no eyes, but mere seeds in their place.
It took a human shape, rose from the ground.
It bloomed, and bore its petals like a crown.

The flower turned its twisted face and looked at me
the way it walked, the way it looked, could it truly ?
It walked to me, and its seeds became real eyes
That's when I realized, I had to realize :

I saw your face in a dead flower,
a rose risen by a twisted power
I saw the face of my dead lover
and I watched you die, over and over
I saw your face in a dead flower,
a rose risen by a twisted power
I saw the face of my dead lover
and I watched you die, over and over

Surrounded by so much smoke and fire,
was your body, still trapped in a spire.
Trapped under stones, body charred and hurt
as if you slept, you laid dead, inert
You laid there, dead, some charred meat for a face
I wept and cried, wished for a last embrace.
covered in black flowers, wreath for a crown,
closed casket, you were lowered underground.

It may have looked like you, but no, it couldn't be you
It was a dream I knew, but all my pain was true
as true as when you fell from atop that tower
as true as your ashes, your funeral flower
[Exit]
