It's 3:34 in the morning
And I still haven't gone to bed
I shake and scream and tug at my ears
From a song stuck in my head
I know that I have heard it before
And it's notes they make me weep
This song comes burrowing through endless night
As I desperately try to sleep
Its tune is haunting and evil to me
My insides are starting to show
This brutal song keeps playin’ on
And this is how it goes

Padam padam padam
Padam padam padam

I been a martyr witnessed hell
But never a horror like this
It's paralyzing and breaks me down
Leaves a tightness in my chest
I fear that it’s the end of me
These chords they rip so deep
I can't control the energy I get
When the notes begin to leap
It has a line that mellows out
And I can breathe one more breath
But then the bridge comes storming in
And this is what it says

Padam padam padam
Padam padam padam

How could music feel so free
And still take all that you have
I thought you were my savior once
But now I see you are my death
An unrequited love we have
I give it all at every show
But you take and take and bury my heart
And try to strip away my soul
I have a wife I have two sons
But you snap them up in two
Padam padam padam you scream
To this song my life I give to you
So I’ll sit here and pick the notes in my head
Across this beaten guitar
And I'll continue throughout eternity
Because the end is still so far


from Cold Was The Ground, released February 28, 2015
