lyrics

Us kids grew up in the winter of decline
Reaching higher like it’s a birth right that we climb
But 18 years came and dearly departed went
Like the rage we let so foment

Try to say it again, but you find that you never really want to
If you say “I love you”, do I really want you to?

A country we cross like neo-49ers
After the jobs we’ve chased as mercenaries for higher
But this place only seemed like home
Once the seed of need was twice so desperately sown

Try to say it again, but you find that you never really want to
If you say “I love you”, do I really want you to?

Middle-class expands as their greed demands
The blood of the new unto the temple of the land
So while us kids grew up in winter’s hand
It was in autumn that we’re harvested from the land

Try to say it again, but you find that you never really want to
If you say “I love you”, do I really want you to?

So though obscure our bonds might be (we’re overcome)
I recall they arose from under the childhood tree
Seed of doubt for we grew too fast (we’re overcome)
Raised in Decline baptized in lies (we’re overcome)

So though one day our fates might change (we’re overcome)
We see hope lost to a three-digit exchange (we’re overcome)
And the family splits like a tree in the yard (overcome”
Singing “not long now” “not long now”
And not far

about

Sam Deffenbaugh Chicago, Illinois

I picked up the guitar in elementary school because I wanted to be Paul Simon. Times have changed and influences have come and gone. Now I love everything from Radiohead and FlyLo to Rage, but I'm still a sucker for a good melody. I hope you enjoy what you hear and thanks for listening! ... more
