And wash it down with sunshine… Song 285

This one turned out to be a barn-burner. It started on acoustic as a dark, bluesy kind of song. But, I kept building. Synths and drums, electric guitars and bass. Plus, gotta have the good old “Boom + Clap”. I really had some fun building this one up.

Song 285: “Battle Cry”

I guess I’ll burn those bridges
Burn them to the ground
I guess I’ll burn those bridges
Burn them to the ground

I’m tired of waiting, I’m tired of being down
I’m tired of the chances, hiding underground
In plain sight

Swallow down that bottle of rocks
And wash it down with sunshine
Swallow down that bottle of rocks
And wash it down with sunshine

I’m tired of waiting, I’m tired of being fooled
I’m tired of chasing ghosts, wondering what’s what
In this life

Call it my battle cry
Call it my battle cry
Cuz this is war

I’m tired of waiting, I’m tired of being fooled
I’m tired of chasing ghosts, wondering what’s what
In this life

Call it my battle cry
Call it my battle cry
Cuz this is war
