Beauty Of Defeat

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

Lyrics:

When he’s told to close his eyes
This is what he’s meant to see
Sunflowers and pristine skies
Peace as long as can be

Since nothing’s gonna be refused
He wants to sing
And yet he lays battered and bruised
Inside the ring
Can’t hear the laughter and prayers from the crowd
He is unbound

His own conscience has gone south
Since the echoes of the bell
Streams of blood leak from his mouth
But he’s never felt so well

Since nothing’s gonna be refused
He wants to sing
And yet he lays battered and bruised
Inside the ring
Can’t hear the rage of his coach from that cloud
He is unbound

He knows he’s gonna wake up
Reuniting with the pain
Still chasing for a stupid cup
One more regret in the brain

But, for now, he has it all
Where he’s never on the ropes
Sirens and trees having a ball
Winds of love and streets of hope

Since nothing’s gonna be refused
There’s no pressure
And yet he lays battered and bruised
On this stretcher
Can’t hear the ones telling him they’re so proud
He is unbound
[Exit]
