Trial By Fire

June 27, 2018 6:41 PM

Written for a songwriting competition, it's a lofi/funk/power-pop kind of thing. To ensure songs were not written in advance, entries were required to include a siren in their song somehow, so, y'know, that's why there's a siren in the song.

Here is the basic construct of it all: we introduce a completely different angle?
We got the fire, but we’re never going to give you a trial
We got the fire, but we’re never going to give you a trial

Trial by fire, trial by fire

Take all the time that you feel that you need
Nothing I mentioned can be guaranteed
We in an awful position
I wasn’t listening
I don’t believe what you say you believe
That was some foolishness
You’re usually hit and miss
Did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
Nyah-nyah-nyah out there?

And the peculiar thing is this my friends
The song we sang on that fateful night?
It didn’t actually sound anything like this song
This is just a trial by fire, trial by fire

And this is the way that sets up the scene
And over again and that’s what I mean
When people are lying and lonely on time
I don’t have the patience others have had before me

We got the fire now
Who needs a trial if it’s too highbrow
I don’t have time that I’d like to waste
Seems like the flames are all out of place
Always close the cover before striking
Here come the visions, not to my liking
Sleep is the place where I am a viking

Dame la gasolina (8X)
Trial by fire (6X)
