Lyrics

Far From Home (aka Battlezone)

I bit myself today
Lost all my self control
I'm such a bloody mess
With duck tape it won't show
I strap these feelings on
With grappling hooks and chains
And, carefully contemplate
How guilt can leave a bloody stain

- (chorus) -
Shipwrecked far from home
This crisis of my youth
Come join my battle zone
If you want truth, I'll give you proof
My mind a reservoir
Of crazy crooked pain
My spirit still at war with my demons
I don't dare to name (they have my name)

I drag my crooked leg
Down streets I used to own
And, wrap my bleeding soul
Round blessings I should have known
Now, in my cheaters chair
I carefully cut and paste
My precious thoughts and dreams
To please the judge and the magistrate

- (chorus) -

- (bridge) -
With a felon's sense of pride
And a convict's private creed
I tempt the gods to turn on me
But, I only steel what I need

- (chorus) -

WOW!!!!! What a powerful song!!! Why don't you have a record deal? This is so passionate, so moving!! I love the dry nylon string with the long verb on the vocal! Just BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Very heart felt performance, it started off a little shakey but gained momentum as the song progressed, to the point that I wanted more when it was over. A somber feel that go straight to the heart and then the head.
Has a little feel as tho it would be good in a stage play.

very good lyrics on this folk track. a song that requires the listener to listen to the lyrics and performance and just be absorbed . very good song and performance

I already reviewed this.
