Blue Light 30-30 – Week 5 Challenge

So, we received this week’s challenge on Monday, and look at me – caught the lightning bolt last night (Wednesday) and my entry just kind of wrote itself – though I think I could have done better in the mix (and as a non-performing songwriter I know that my singing is sub-par).  Jordan Howard, Creative Director of CCS Rights Management is looking to pitch songs for a 19th century “Dexter”-style show starring Christina Ricci – so that took me to a pretty dark place:  There must be some mistake, I didn’t mean to let them take away my soul… I know the devil wears a blue dress, but this neon blue image took over for me and the 30-30 shotgun image completed this macabre work… the longer version (yes, there is an even longer version) also worked in pentagrams and black candles for a full-on Satanist vibe…

I’m back on my Matt Dusk pitch song now – lighter fare for sure! I’m busy over March Break, so I’m making the most of my not-so-free time now… May the Muse, and not the Devil, be with you…

Blue Light 30-30

There must be some mistake
I didn’t mean to let them take away my soul

I don’t know how it started – I don’t know who, what, why or when
But somehow I faulted and he was there as a friend
The devil is wrong but the devil is strong

I used to be a loser – I played the cards that I was dealt
Then I became a user and his presence was felt
He appeared last night in a deep blue light

There must be some mistake
I didn’t mean to let them take away my soul
My soul

You know I’ve never traveled – It’s time for me to go down south
The mysteries unravel – just put a rifle barrel in your mouth
The Blue Light 30-30 will get you there in a hurry

There must be some mistake
I didn’t mean to let them take away my soul
My soul

If the devil is wrong then why is he so strong

There must be some mistake
I didn’t mean to let them take away
I didn’t mean to let them take away my soul
My soul
