Victims Of The Storms

by Major Matt Mason USA



In times of crisis, it is easy to forget about our power as individuals. The storms in our lives can inflict life long wounds. But they can also summon some of our deepest strengths. This is a song about the shockwaves of our actions and the things we touch along the way. It is a celebration of human resiliency and learning how to dance with our ghosts.


I'll compose the music for you spitting in the wind
If you console the memory for the ghost of my old friend
Then we'll raise a glass for every pass we made it around the horn
And spill some for the victims of the storms

You can use a switchblade knife to scrape away the tears
I cold spend the rest of my life tickling the ears of
All my future lovers hiding under covers to get warm
Escaping all the victims of the storms

Do you know where to go and what we're going for?
The wind calls out flowers grow just outside your door

Meet me the garden of a place we never knew
We'll lay down in the dirt because that's something we can do
We'll close our eye and dream about another human form
And dance inside our heads with all those victims of the storms

And get reborn
And get reborn

Reborn again
Reborn again
