EYE OF THE STORM
September Mourning Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What do you think that you can take from me
When solid gold is dripping from the sun
Black hole eyes, an empty soul
I cannot bleed, you cannot hold me
Fighting in a war that's never won

Can you feel the calm
It's right before the storm
Escape from all your darker days
Follow me I'll lead the way back home

We are the soldiers of your destiny
Fighting for the worthless and the damned
Mortal life, a fragile soul
Broken bones, ethernal silence
Death has always known who I am

Can you feel the calm
It's right before the storm
Escape from all your darker days
Follow me I'll lead the way back home

Can you feel it all around you
Can you feel it all around you

Darkness

Can you feel the calm
It's right before the storm
Escape from all your darker days
Follow me I'll lead the way back
Promise you I'll lead the way back home





Can you feel it all around you
Can you feel it all around you

this band is based off a comic book the lead singer writes. its pretty friggin awesome. Emily is a very humble and loving person. hope they make it far.

LovesPunchingBabies

September Mournings concept reminds me of a band I really like called Coheed and Cambria. they have 7 albums based off the lead singers book/comic series. The wider story really hooks me.

James Buchanan

Fascinating concept. Certainly not the first album to ever be set to a story, but she's got the gift, and she's creative as hell.

Cyber Reeper

I really want them to succeed and make more awesome albums/singles.

Bud Knight
