Back to Dead Of Winter (Demo)

Culture Clash

The darkest chapter opened up

In front of our eyes

And pierced into our hearts on fire

With cold desires

And the author to this bloody book

Is mother herself

She sent me to the freedom land

This culture clash

And we’re searching for a reason

An apprehension left untold

I’m not the soul I was before

I’m not bruised with inequities that left me sore

I’ve defeated demons in the night

That fought so hard to block the light

And I’m never going back to write

These empty melodies that made me stay up all night

Gonna get it right tonight

I’m certain now the words I speak

Are subtle beliefs

And the words I never spoke as a child

Are pouring out

From fear and loathing

To tears I’m exposing

And we’re searching for a reason

A comprehension left untold

And time and time I think about

The years I spent living in doubt

And I hope you’re happy bringing down

This world on your kids and knocking us down

And spinning us round and round

There’s only one that deserves this loving, beautiful sound

Dad, I hope we make you proud

You’ve got us singing

Look at us now

Where are you now

I’m not the soul I was before

I’m not bruised with inequities that left me sore

I’ve defeated demons in the night

That fought so hard to block the light

And I’m never going back to write

These empty melodies that made me stay up all night

Gonna get it right tonight

And time and time I think about

The years I spent living in doubt

And I hope you’re happy bringing down

This world on your kids and knocking us down

And spinning us round and round

There’s only one that deserves this loving, beautiful sound

Dad, I hope we make you proud

We’ll never ever truly breathe

Till we see you again
