Lyrics

THE WIND INSIDE MY SCREAMS

Remorse since I was born
With no attendant pain
Embattled dust till dawn
Haunting and abstained

My soul has gone to hell
My pride's not far behind
I know this all too well
It's how I tell the time

These stains I carry round
Of Satan's certain sins
Bemuse the circus clown
And haunt my soul within

(chorus)
I circumnavigate
A dozen endless storms
But never ever reach
The center of the calm
With anguished howls at night
And bloody tempest dreams
I fight to save my life from
The wind inside my screams

I drag this weighted ball
Down streets of assassins
Knowing it contains
All my brother's sins

I'll gladly share with you
My resume of shame
And help you validate
It's me who ought be blamed

(chorus)
I circumnavigate
A dozen endless storms
But never ever reach
The center of the calm
With anguished howls at night
And bloody tempest dreams
I fight to save my life from
The wind inside my screams

(bridge)
These screams that howl at night
Yet sleep all through the day
Are still 'fraid of the dark
With no sense of fair play

(chorus)
I circumnavigate
A dozen endless storms
But never ever reach
The center of the calm
With anguished howls at night
And bloody tempest dreams
I fight to save my life from
The wind inside my screams

Great Song, enjoyed listening. I think this would have good market potential with great vocals and a really good arrangement.
Has a bit of eighties feel about it with a modern feel which I think works well.

I was blown away by the originality of the feel to this song. It was pleasantly unpredictable. Awesome and captivating song!

Purely awesome, and spectacular in every aspect that counts in songwriting and performing. And many aspects there are: Great concept with thoughtful and clever lyrics that are PERFECTLY supported by the instrumentation to not only tell the story, but to make the listener "feel" it. Great wavering of pitch in the chorus sections makes this just odd enough to lend mystery and uniqueness that works for any song to distinguish it, but particularly for this one with the theme it has. EXCELLENT vocal that brings the mood right out front. Larger than life instrumentation that is precise and mood evoking as well. Example: Section at 3:23 with the high pitched guitar echo and the whooshing sound - it's the perfect sonic equivalent of the lyric. Love the way it builds intensity at 1:00 and 1:57. Loved the intro too.
