Lyrics

I was a soldier boy in the twilight of my youth
When I still could feel love and a trust in above for the truth
I fought with bravery, then I left my gun behind
But the misery I've seen never wiped itself clean from my mind
   
    Now I never, ever close my eyes completely
    When I'm sleeping...

I barely recognize the people that I knew
The faces the same and I still couldn't name but a few
If god isn't dead, then I'll kill him myself
Cuz I've seen the worst, I'm not scared to just burst into hell

    Now I never, ever close my eyes completely
    When I'm sleeping, I'm not dreaming

This is epic.

Songs like this make me hate being deaf and wish I could make a music video. This song is utterly amazing, and it would fit so beautifully for FMA's Colonel Roy Mustang. Ah, well, there's always fic. I've been on a dry spell for two years, and this stuff is waking up my creative juices. You're a miracle worker.

I can not express my emotions in English, but this track is brilliant, beautiful and very, very sad. I cried when I first time heard.
Adrian (anon) · 4 years, 4 months ago
Simply put, this song is amazing. As is the rest of your music. I heard "Memorized" on a ShayCarl Youtube video and loved it. Thank you Josh for making your music available to anyone who wants to hear your talent and passion. I will definitely spread your name and music.

Hey Jonathan! I'm actually not sure I remember, but I think I think I did something with drop-D. It's probably detuned a half step or two from there, and then just playing the basic chords. But don't quote me on that. :D
