07. I Am A Stone

Songs of Death and Resurrection
by Demon Hunter



 

Itís hard to say that Iím back on a straight line
Youíll see my path is in fact just a fault line
Itís in my blood, itís in my lungs, and it wonít die
I fight these words, I bite my tongue, so I donít lie

Though itís me to blame, there is no more shame in me
I just feel the same, immune to all this pain
And the scars donít write a song for me at all

I am a stone, unaffected
Rain Hell down onto me
Flesh and bone, unaffected
Your fool I will not be

I tried to see and believe in the short-sight
Accept the burn of a vain and a half life
And how you rest your faith in these for a lifetime
The hollow lie against my hope that I wonít buy

No, your tears wonít line a path for me to crawl

The waters rise above my eyes
I will breathe it in and go out with the tide
And when you think this is the end
You will find me there where I have always been




Behind the Song:
ďI Am a StoneĒ is an anomaly. I challenge anyone to find another instance of a band whose highest overall streams belong to a B-side. Iím proud of this factónot only because itís interesting and uniqueó but because it proves our fans truly appreciate these ballad-esque departures. We began playing this song live in recent years. Its popularity almost demanded we do so. Since a live string section has not been feasible (yet), Patrick and I perform it with a simple clean guitar and vocal. This version of ďI Am a StoneĒ is a bit reverseengineered. Most of the songs in this collection are stripped down and slowed down to some degree. Since the songís original version is a minimal string section and vocals, the challenge here was adding to the song as we incorporated the full band. The best solution to pull it further away from the original was to make it slightly upbeat, but do so without jeopardizing the mood. This rendition of the song is more triumphant and proud. Itís less somber than the original, but somehow these changes feel equally fitting. óRyan Clark
