09. Deteriorate

Songs of Death and Resurrection
by Demon Hunter



 

Time has had it's way with me.
My broken tired hands cant build a thing.
The wires that have held me still embedded now in flesh to find my will.
The idle of my days is won, the empty I have fed has made me numb,
Despite what you will find in me.

The failures of my past just swirl beneath.

[Pre-chorus]
I need a heart that carries on through the pain
When the walls start collapsing again.
Give me a soul that never ceases to follow,
Despite the infection within

[Chorus]
Our careless feet leaving trails
Neverminding the fragile dirt we all end in.
Our careless feet leaving trails
Neverminding the fragile dirt we all end in.

This is where I find my fall the cares that held me alive dont work at all.
And every step away from here is closer to the plague I hold so dear.

I need a heart that carries on through the pain,
When the walls start collapsing again.
Give me a soul that never ceases to follow despite the infection within

Awaiting my end breathing in the day that finds me new.
Redemption begins bleeding out the flaws in place of you.
Awaiting my end breathing in the day that finds me new.
Redemption begins Redemption Begins.

[Chorus]



Behind the Song:
“Deteriorate” is a song we’ve barely touched live. I remember Patrick and I playing it at a one-off acoustic gig in Quakertown, Pennsylvania in 2009. To my knowledge this was the only time it saw the light of day in live fashion. Dusting it off for this collection, and rethinking how to execute it in a new way was a lot of fun. In the end, it felt great in a very simplified state—just piano and vocal—for the most part. My favorite moment of this song takes place towards the end of the bridge: just after the music drops out. Here we arrive back at the song’s intro/ verse section, but with some added “umph” before the final chorus. For this new rendition, we decided to bring the full band in at this point—mimicking the heart and soul of the original recording—and ending an otherwise entirely piano and vocal song on a really big note. This time, we end the song with a four or five-part vocal harmony, which has become one of my favorite moments. —Ryan Clark
