To reach 50 songs in 90 days I'm going to have to move out of my comfort zone, so here's a dystopian ballad. Might need a couple more verses.
Any resemblance to the current world situation is purely coincidental.
A blood red sun rose through the smoke
Of a thousand funeral fires
Then it cast its golden cloak
Over the quick, the dead, the liars
The sunlight fell on a mighty dome
Which lay beyond the pyres
The people knew this was the home
Of the avarice and the liars
When the curse crept over every land
The liars squirmed with pleasure
At the prizes they’d command
Bartering people’s lives for treasure
One man arose and spoke out loud
That there would come a day
They’d cast the liars from their lair
And then they’d make them pay
