I am darkness
I am night
I am vengeance
I bring light

(2x)
I'm a winter breeze in summertime
The world is broken, I'm just fine
Looking day and living night
I'm alright

Cloak and dagger
Cape and mask
Smoke and mirrors
Guilty past

(2x)
I'm a winter breeze in summertime
The world is broken, I'm just fine
Looking day and living night
But I'm alright


I am the man behind the mask
I am the man behind the mask

(2x)
I'm a winter breeze in summertime
The world is broken, I'm just fine
Looking day and living night
I'm alright

    General CommentI freaking love this song. AC is amazing. It's about hiding your true self from everyone with all these little tricks and disguises.
    I may be a little off, but in general this song is pretty straightforward to me.
    But still very powerful. :3

    General CommentOMG, This song is so awesome, how come no one commented on it yet?! Anyway, I'm takin' a shot in the dark here, but I think it describes his true self under the mask that everone else sees.

    Don't suppose anyone knows if Anarchy Club have more than two songs?

    General Commenti think there's more to the song then the so cliche'd "man behind the mask" thing. they seem to have a quite a bit of depth to their songs.

    General CommentIf anyone's interested, Anarchy Club has an entire album called The Way and Its Power with 15 tracks on it. A few are filler, but most are really good songs.

    That's pretty much it.

    General CommentI wouldn't necessarily say it's about Batman specifically...It could be about any superhero or vigilante figure in general.
