First Light of Winter

First Light of Winter
Unknown
Indie Rock
Just a strange and errie line: "And the levee’s holding fast they said it would last they promised."  It brings all sorts of thoughts - sadness and despair and yet just a little hope.

I’ve been traveling down a dark road
Going places that no one knows
Now I’m rambling across the basin
Trying to get back but no one’s waiting

Brace yourself for the first light of winter
Grab the line before you hit the bottom

There’s a hunger that’s deep inside
It’s not polite it won’t apologize
It’s a wild beast that has a grip
And it won’t let go make peace with it

Brace yourself for the first light of winter
Grab the line before you hit the bottom

When the storm arrives it’s got a crazy eye
It has no mercy until it dies
Now I’m heading north to Baton Rouge
Where the ground is dry and the sky is blue

Brace yourself for the first light of winter
Grab the line before you hit the bottom

And the levee’s holding fast they said it would last they promised
Descending in your diving bell beneath the swell looking for solace
But you had been down so long you knew it was wrong you felt helpless
As the pressure starts to rise it’s a matter of time you arrive
At the bottom

Feeling bad feeling better
Gonna stop write a letter
To the government the powers that be
I’ve been fighting wars in the name of peace

Brace yourself for the first light of winter
Grab the line before you hit the bottom

And the levee’s holding fast they said it would last they promised
But you had been down so long the pressure was strong til you release it
As your spirits start to rise make your way toward the light at the surface
Now you’re coming up for air the coast is clear you would survive this
Now you’re lawless
Now you’re fearless

Oh oh oh oh oh ohoh ohoh ohoh ohoh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
