Lyrics: (Intro)

Here’s a story…
Here’s a story…
Here’s a story about a girl I once loved
And I’d still love her if she was still around.

It felt like yesterday but I’ll say once upon a time
There was a girl who was far more beautiful
Than did her any good.

The amazing thing about it is she had no idea.

And nor did she feel compelled
To notice such things in others.
She just thought that’s how the universe worked.

What she failed to take into account
Is the foundational self interest
Of all sentient beings
And that’s when it all came…
(Well for her anyway)
That’s when it all came crumbling to pieces.

(Verse One)

She was a girl who
Never thought,
Never guessed,
Never got.

In spite of all the life and love
There was to go around.

Beauty, purity, liberty, symmetry, serenity and energy
Are only for the ones who pay the price with others blood
And throw…

Down.
Steal that crown,
Taking that slave,
Spinning that head around.

You get it,
They get it,
He got it,
I get it,
Those people got it.

But bless her heart she never even stood a chance in hell.

(Chorus)

Oh when I came here I was lost and forgotten
Until then the sun rose in the dawn.
And I just meant to stay forever here running
But in three seconds I’ll be gone.

(Verse Two)

She was a girl who
Never thought,
Never guessed,
Never got.

How many tears it took to take
The wretched tyrant down.

You get it,
They get it,
He got it,
I get it,
Those people got it.

But bless her heart she never even stood a chance in hell.

(Chorus)

Oh when I came here I was lost and forgotten
Until then the sun rose in the dawn.
And I just meant to stay forever here running
But in three seconds I’ll be gone.

And I can’t remember my name. It’s forgotten,
And they all told me I was wrong.
‘Cause I just meant to stay forever here loving
But in three seconds I’ll be gone.

Title:  ”In Three Seconds I’ll Be Gone”

Album:  ”…And Down Goes The Sky”

BPM:  65

Key Signature:  E

Time Signature:  6/4, 4/4

Subject:  Exploitation
 

Synopsis:

In this song a young women, who emulates innocence, kindness, virtue, optimism and moral idealism, is lost to a cunning, thieving, and grievously blood-thirsty community.

In order to thrive in this community one must adopt less than admiral methods, and everyone seems to understand these unspoken rules but her.

In such a hostile environment, all it took was 3 seconds for this bright beacon of purity, hope and enlightenment to be extinguished.
