Lyrics
First light is always the brightest,
As you grow older it seems to fade away,
All those things that seemed so easy,
Fade and fall apart,

Too bad we can't just hit reset,
There's no DeLorean to save us,
To stop it before it hurts,
So hard when one stupid mistake can take your life away,

They say, one day son this will all be yours,
They never seem to say sorry for the mess,

Don't seem to fight the war that we can't see,
Smiling faces while we're sucked beneath the sea,
This violent tide is your legacy,
Fuck you for leaving it to me,

We are the young, we are the wild,
Live for the summer nights,
Ready to fall in love with a heart so full of fire,
Someone to make us forget,
The life that's been shredded by razor wire,

They say someday, son, this will all be yours,
They never seem to say they're sorry for the mess,

Don't seem to fight the war that we can't see,
Smiling faces while we're sucked beneath the sea,
This violent tide is your legacy,
Fuck you for leaving it to me,

Fuck you

Hey, I really like the lyrics and the general rhythm but i feel like if you sped it up just a bit it would just sound better. I don't know if that's something you would consider given that the songs written to that effect. but apart from that i really dig it, good job. :)


ZacStriga responds:

It was written specifically to be slow. Zero desire was to make it faster, but I appreciate the input!
