LYRICS

All blossoms die in the light of our new culture
Find your belief in that which cannot be discovered
Countless lessons lie in every fever dream
A million voices asking, what does it all mean?

I’ve lost all direction
I’ve lost all my direction
And now I wish, that I would have believed
Could have believed

Escape, escape
Nature’s indifferent hand
Retreat, retreat
To the bliss of our creation

We were born and raised
To live beyond
The heft and weight of a world undone
Like a bird from the north
Our hearts will roam in search of warmth

Two hands come together to pray for greater yields
Two poles of a compass guided by a field
In the mind of every man, two ghosts dance
Was this place made, or was it here by chance?
I’ve lost all direction
I’ve lost all my direction
And now I wish, that I would have believed
Could have believed

Escape, escape
Nature’s indifferent hand
Retreat, retreat
To the bliss of our creation

We were born and raised
To live beyond
The heft and weight of a world undone
Like a bird from the north
Our hearts will roam in search of warmth

Uncountable numbers written in new fallen snow
I can hear the claws of the beast tapping at my window
Nihilist sleeps and in dreams he sees god’s face
Realize even disbelief requires a leap of faith
From birth to death, we search for what’s yet to be known
We and hope and pray and ask, but we are never shown

Born and raised to live beyond
The heft and weight of a world undone
Like a bird from the north
Our hearts will roam in search of warmth

We were born and raised

THE BACKSTORY

So this cover idea was born while watching one of the last Alexisonfire shows during their Farewell Tour.
I had just bought their latest cd “Death Letter” and was intrigued by their soft version of Born and Raised….but I wanted a halfway version between the distorted guitars and the folkish version.
I was crazy busy during the holidays but I still managed to put this together on my spare time here and there (most of it was learned/recorded/edited during sleepless nights) Hope you appreciate the effort.

If you don’t know Alexisonfire although they have just split as a band each of them are moving forward into other musical projects, so check them out.

I will leave you with the wise words of Goerge : “This is not a funeral, this is a fucking wake!”.
