Lyrics: 

Between the Night and the Day (c) 2020 ustaknow (alias)
Skirmish tag: s081620

I live between the night and the day
Between the dark and the light
The free and the brave
With chains to freedom
And…, no locks to keep scared deep

And so my soul, washes sleep
In the breeze of blood thump needs
The free and the brave
With chains to freedom
And…, no locks to keep skin deep

I live between the night and the day
Between the dark and the light
If my soul washes sleep to keep
And my body then not needs
My rewards then, maybe, about to meet

If give you my chains, wear them swell
And to freedom they will sweep
To freedom they ward breaking knees
Of the ones that do not heed
Then freedoms lesser weeds, there, they, will not keep

Flesh carved well, in wet mold heaps
Dried statued symbols of our past
Tare them down, bleed them again
Now written in your skin,
Written in your skin

And for them then,
I will not,
Care, care, care



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Interesting contrasts chains/freedoms, night/day, rewards/weeds/breaking knees. I hope this gets music. Well done on the skirmish!

Yeah I dig the contrasts as well.....really dark and ominous reminds me of the christmas carol and the ghosts in that for some reason Biggrin

Could be my sleep deprivation, but this reminds me of Peter Pan... "that place between sleep and awake." And all the juxtapositions in this song are like all the characters dealing with aging in their own way... fighting it, ignoring it, or embracing it.
