A song written from the point of view of a snowman. Not quite a cheery Frosty kind of tune, either. I envision it being a metal epic, the guitars imitating the harshness and echoing emptiness of winter and the bass keeping a lonely time, the vocals subdued but hypnotic, rising every once in a while to a scream, which will not take away from the feel of the song but add to it. It's also about me, in some ways I suppose, but it wasn't written that way. It just kind of ended up reflecting some of my own feelings, as most art does. This is a revamp of the old version, which was still good, but nowhere near what it's become now. Hope you guys dig it.


The Snowman's Lament

If you could see...
My world, just ice and snow.
You'd understand...
Why I'd die to let it go!
The light...
Sears me, but there's nothing I want more!
I've become...
Your disposable companion...
Rendered so numb.
Can't feel my useless stick hands!
So bring ignition...
And erode me to my frigid, dead core!

And burn so good.
Like I always hoped it would.
I've never been surer,
This'll be the thaw that warms my blood!
Struck by the fire!
Winter's lonely martyr!
With one desire!
For the sun to get much hotter!
And burn so good.
Like it should!

Just let me...
Burn away inside the summer.
And let me fall.
Like we never did into each other!
Set fire my eyes!
Lumps of coal that have grown, so sore!
It's so cold...
This snow I've spent decades in.
Before I grow old...
Sun grant me evaporation!
Take this life...
From me as my melting, flesh pours!

It would burn so good!
If only I could feel it!
If I'd understood...
Could I have changed it!

"So much spent...
To stand alone, silent snowman.
But soon it ends...
Face death as best as you can!
Your lament...
Wailed in the wind of winter's wasteland.
Song of what's been...
For those that once held your hand!
May they understand...
None of this was as you planned."
