Cold hunter's knife,
washed in a silver rain.
Threaded wings and pierced by those claws that cling
to the throats and hands of death.

Bold, brazen child
who said you could do these things.
Made from rain and light blowing in from space.
Now, to kill, and fight, and hide your claim.

Cold, haunted heart,
you dream of my warm embrace.
All the while carving with all your hate,
rage and bile to turn me cold.

But cold is home and I am winter;
blinding light and blasting horns.
If you want warmth, then I am summer,
but choose the one you're wanting more.

    General CommentAmazing song, Chris's vocals ARE the melody in the first half and then it just bursts out of the gates for the last verse. Incredible to say the least and very good lyrics but it's too late in the night for me to delve into meaning beyond the intimate binding of life and death, cold and warm, comfort and pain. They're tied together so close yet the question is posed whether the two can exist at the same time.

    General Commentits hard to essplain... think of a drug.
    and all the music starts to make perfect sense.
    the recurring knife, the light...
    im not too absolutely positive, the last
    always kind of confused me....
    im thinking he's everything and he has it all.
    either way you choose, he's got it.
    something like that...
    versatile people that they are.
    my kind of people.
