It is time for Throwback Thursday and one of my favorite songs by City and Colour. If you have not heard of Dallas Green you need to immediately fix that, because you have missed big time! It is Dallas Green side project which he started during the active years of Alexisonfire. I miss this amazing post-hardcore band very much but at the same time I am glad that at least some of the members continued to play music by started/joined different projects.
Overall, the lyrics are truly beautiful and touching and my favorite is Gordon's Downie part. It gives me chills every time I hear his voice. Sing along or listen carefully, it will get you too.
A simple souvenir of someone’s kill
And like the sea
I’m constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and souls as if the great divider could swallow me whole
Oh, how I’m breaking down
