Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/19/18

***

It’s Sunday, and time for another SLS, with a prompt that Helen has chosen for us. Today’s word is ‘fear’. Thanks, Helen!

There’s lots of songs & lyrics that speak about fear in one way or another.

I’m not real sure what this song I’ve picked means, but there are several I think it could be referencing. There is the fear of death, the fear of losing a loved one to death, and fear of your own death and the unknown beyond.

Then, it could be about the fear of breaking up with a lover, losing a friend, or losing yourself or another to addiction to drugs of any kind.

Shotgun Messiah has been a favorite band of mine for many years. Most of their music and lyrics are heavy mental, in that they seem to have a message. Their earlier work was more lighthearted, but as they evolved, it became more thought provoking. They did eventually break up, but the lead singer, Tim Skold, went on to a solo career, after stints with Marilyn Manson, and others.

Anyway, hope you enjoy this song even if it’s a bit different.

See the skies through misty eyes
Your mind will open the door
Left behind the ties that bind
You stand and wait by the shore

Oh, you cry
You see me die every night
Oh, you fear
I’ve seen the tears in your eyes
We’re not meant to be
I’m far beyond your touch

We, we ride the storm
I’ll guide you home
When hope is gone
The night you say goodbye
The angels will cry
You’re not alone
We ride the storm

By my side, await the tide
The pain gets lost in the deep
Miss you so, it’s time to go
My soul is longing for sleep

Oh, you cry
You see me die every night
Oh, you fear
I’ve seen the tears in your eye
We’re not meant to be
I’m far beyond your touch

We, we ride the storm
I’ll guide you home
When hope is gone
The night you say goodbye
The angels will cry
You’re not alone
We ride the storm

We ride the storm
I’ll guide you home
When hope is gone
The night you say goodbye
The angels will cry
You’re not alone
We ride the storm

    • Thanks, Felicia!
      I think I’ve posted one of their songs on here before, but don’t think it was this one. I’ve heard songs, too, that seem familiar, but I’m pretty sure I hadn’t heard it before. 🙂
