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

Speed of Sound

This song was created for Game of Bands round 256 : "GoB Live"

Lyrics:

Nothing's the same, it's a shade of grey,
The same old cheap thrills don't hit like they used to,
And the city lights, don't seem to shine as bright,
As they did when you were twenty-two.

I've overstayed my welcome

I'm getting out of here,
You won't find me around,
Escape this crazy town,
Do you want to come with me?

We are the ones who know the truth (A far cry from what they tell you),
These streets, the backdrop of our youth (Now lie in ruin, overused),
Before the occupation, this city was our playground,
But now the rulers make sure everything is locked down.

I've overstayed my welcome

I'm getting out of here,
You won't find me around,
Escape this crazy town,
At the speed of sound.


There's nothing left now for us here, (Our rights used as bargaining chips,)
The rulers feed us hate and fear, (Police checks and the censorship.)
You better stay in line, don't resist,
Don't want to end up on the blacklist.

We've overstayed our welcome


I'm getting out of here,
You won't find me around,
Escape this crazy town,
At the speed of sound.

We've overstayed our welcome

I'm getting out of here,
You won't find me around,
Escape this crazy town,
At the speed of sound.

Thanks too:
