SS070921D - theme was Dislike Unlike maybe even Hate

Lyrics: 

Am Dm
Bitter and black, transitory
Am E
Deeply ingrained in half a story
Am DM
Rage and tears like honey flow
Am E Am
The funny part, you don’t even know

DM AM
Pillow scream and 2AM nightmare
DM Am
Give up sleeping, I can’t go there
Dm Am
Respite, reprieve, Let me be
E E7
Stop living in my mind rent free

Chorus
Am Dm
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E
To the ground, to the ground
Am DM
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E Am
To the ground, to the ground

Am Dm
Red hell-fire, purgatory
Am E
Splay my guts, but no glory
Am Dm
Don’t want to grow the seeds you sew
Am E Am
I whisper softly let me go

Am Dm
Hands like ice, mind of aching
Am E
No longer there for your taking
Am Dm
Smash and break, and burn the pieces
Am E Dm
I can’t remember what peace is

Chorus
Am Dm
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E
To the ground, to the ground
Am DM
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E Am
To the ground, to the ground

Dm Am
I let you in
Dm Am
It’s all my sin
Dm E
And now I burn

Chorus
Am Dm
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E
To the ground, to the ground
Am DM
Burn it down, Burn it all down
Am E Am
To the ground, to the ground

Very melodic and slightly unsettling. Very good song! This is a really good song even more so for a skirmish! I really like this! I could hear a big 70 organ smashing this out! excellent

"I can't remember what peace is" - such a good line! Love the feel of this piece. There's so much emotion in here. Really great work.

Strong lyrics, classic blues/protest song feel to this song. Good writing Pearl!

Holey moley this is good! Loving the sad autoharp. While the song certainly holds up as-is acoustic, at the same time I can hear a full band hard rock version.

Wonderful lyrics and haunting melody! Love your vocal delivery, too. Terrific skirmishing!

Super bluesy verse, I can feel the sadness and pain and anger. I love the contrast between verse and chorus. Excellent vocal! I enjoyed listening.
