    "I despise the rising
    Of the upsetting sun
    I'll hide away
    Until the day is done"

    And

    "You could fall away
    And no one would know
    Release the tension of holding on
    Feel the high of letting go"

    "The sun was in my eyes, it blackened my sight"
    I love the use of the sun metaphor - where normally the sun is 'sheddling light on etc' in this use it's concealing what is real.

    Also love the delivery of
    "My moment of peace was just the eye....OF THE STOOOORM!!"
    Great example of the lyrical concept, vocal delivery, and music all rolling into one :)

    It is the discomfort that sets us apart
    That wakes us up, that puts us to sleep
    It is our pathetic moments
    Which make us desire to be great

    Satisfaction is a peak on the verge of decline
    It will be over in the blink of an eye
    Take your time to feel every moment
    A gradual climb will let you enjoy it

    For your life is measured
    By the degree of dynamic from your life to your death
    The wait is long and the wait goes on
    But it is better to travel hopefully than to arrive

    :headbang:

    you'd know eh? :loco: good to see you here duder!


    today my favourite lyrics are two verses from 'Shedding the Deadwood':

    I can't use it to build a home
    it will not fulfill my desires
    Some wood can be used to help build a life
    This wood will be used for building a fire
    ....
    I’d give up all that I started
    To pursue all that I wanted
    I may arrive empty handed
    But at least I will arrive



    I can so goddamn identify with these lyrics so much more now than when this came out! Scary thing is I think I knew it was gonna happen

    I wouldn't miss it for the world
    With that having been said
    Could you be careful with your words,
    Because my world is in your hands
    It was a year ago today
    I put a desperate man to death
    He was the man I used to be
    He trusted every word you said

    I feel like a fist is squeezing my heart whenever I hear these words, the fact that I was going through a breakdown in my relationship when I first heard this really made them powerful words to me ... this whole song is incredible.

    I also really like the "reach out for the cold upper hand" part.

    well Chester, I'm going through a breakdown in my first and only relationship right now (lasted almost 4 years, since I was 17) and those words do hit close to home. I'm gonna pull out both versions of Against the Seasons today and give 'em a spin. Dave's lyrics are perfect for times like this.

    Ghost of Summer's Past is another track that's gonna be a bitch to listen to in this respect... the lyrics will hit close to home!

    Sorry to hear that.... Dave's lyrics are excellent for introspection but never underestimate the power of Cannibal Corpse for the angry moments ;)
    Best wishes to you

    From a recent review of the "Against the Seasons" remaster in the "LotFP" zine (Finland), the author writes:

    "Lyrically, the album stays away from any cliches that may be suspected of a near-black metal band. No Satan, no blood, no violence, no racism, no garbage. No garbage at all* (*that was my favourite line - DG). Just some real metal music with emotional content."

    This observation, I really appreciated. :kickass:

    + This was in a Finnish metal magazine, and I like anything to do with Finland. :) So, extra points!!!!

    haha, go Finland. Yeah I would agree with that statement too, Satan, blood, violence are all fun stuff but Woods would not be the same with it

    And in that we managed to find comfort in each other

    "The Allure of the Earth
    When the urges aren't worth fighting
    The temptations on the great beyond
    Become so exciting"

    and

    "A moment of euphoria
    Inspired by a photograph from that summer
    I remember how we hated everything
    And in that we managed to find comfort in each other"
