The Summer came round early this year,
Oh Winter swung around soon after,
The scent of Spring was high with fear,
The Autumn crows call disaster

Because the north wind blows so cold,
Chilling the warmth of my desire,
And the whispered words we know,
Tell of a future born in fire

And the music that now fills the street
Falls to the rhythm of marching
I find no comfort here
No not in this, or any other year

Because the north wind blows so cold,
Chilling the warmth of my desire,
And the whispered words we know,
Tell of a future born in fire
Tell of a future born in fire

A stranger asks me what do you know
And just where are you going
I told the truth, I just don't know
If you don't mind, I'll just keep going

Because the north wind blows so cold,
Chilling the warmth of my desire,
And the whispered words we know,
Tell of a future born in fire
Tell of a future born in fire

    My InterpretationNot exactly sure what this one is about. Seems like unhappiness year round (first verse) and also from year to year ("I find no comfort here // No not in this, or any other year"). Music and marching sounds like war - that the only music left is war tunes.

    The part with the stranger I think shows how they don't even know what they're doing (could also refer to the general state of the world), what are they trying to achieve, but they keep doing the same they've done, not trying to change anything ("If you don't mind, I'll just keep going").

    Beautiful song :)
