Prompt: The Road Ahead

Lyrics: 

Off This Road

V1
contagious
crimes of hate
uncertain
unjust fate
divisive
death by race

we can’t watch
we can’t wait
we can’t cry
make it great

we need to
get off
this road

C
long detours
treacherous turns
dark tunnels
dangerous curves
I see dead ends
with no returns
on this road
ahead

V1
infectious
irate lies
devious
dogma cries
horrendous
hate filled eyes

we can’t stand
we can’t sigh
we can’t say
it’s all right

we need the
truth to
be told

C
long detours
treacherous turns
dark tunnels
dangerous curves
I see dead ends
with no returns
on this road
ahead

B
may our moral compass
may our North Star
may our God above
may the gift of love
guide us before....
we go too far

C
long detours
treacherous turns
dark tunnels
dangerous curves
I see dead ends
with no returns
on this road
ahead

I really appreciate this concise and effective lyric. Really speaking about current times. Hope to hear it sometime Smile

Wow. Topical and well said. I love that chorus and its worrying message (the way you put it not the message! That kinda terrifies me!!). Perfect for the world right now...

This is another bangup job of writing here! I just crawled out of bed no skirmish for me until I've had some coffee, but I'll read some hahah! Love that chorus, yeah I take it as sociopolitical, it's hard not to with everything right now haha, but also a pretty timeless write as well Smile great stuff

Ohhh, yes. Beautiful job of capturing the dark times we find ourselves in. Thank you for the hopeful bridge. Wonderful writing, as always, and fantastic skirmishing!

Powerful and emotional writing, and I couldn’t agree more. The 2nd verse stood out to me, but the whole thing is excellent. Good skirmishing!
