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) · 5 years, 5 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.

I was wondering if you could give me some directions on how to play this on guitar? Cheers Jony, p.s Your musics great man.

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

noah (anon) · 2 years, 2 months ago
I love this song but why in the hell would you say you would kill god....dude that is just wrong in so many ways.

No it isn't. Not everyone believes in or cares about your particular god. To everyone but your religion, he's nothing more than a construct of your imagination.
