Music Monday: In Chains by Shaman’s Harvest

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

This band is on my radar for a few years now. They were supposed to come to Hungary last February, a few days after my birthday even, but the headlining band, Black Stone Cherry, canceled the tour 😦 So I still have to wait to see them, but until then I can listen to their music. Their new album, Red Hands Black Deeds didn’t catch me at first, but I’ve been listening to it at least a dozen times since then. And while I could choose a song from that one (okay, not really, they are all awesome), I decided to share In Chains, my first big love from Shaman’s Harvest.

Lyrics

Angel of death and mercy, come take me from this cage.
Cause these four walls and iron bars have been witness to the rage.
Of a thousand broken hearts in chains.
Like a cripple without his cane, a king without a crown.
The passion that once consumed me,
Has turned to ashes on the ground.
All that I’ve been given I give it to you.
I can’t stand here watching you fail to tell the truth.

Somebody break these chains.
Wrapped around this heart.
I don’t want you leaving,
I’m begging for mercy, oh to break these chains.
Oh heaven help me now,
Trade these shackles for a crown.
And I’m on my way, way down.

Warm the ice that fills my veins, pumping till I’m numb.
Lead me out of the darkness where it is so hard to escape from.
All that I’ve been given I give it to you.
I can’t stand here watching you fail to tell the truth.

Somebody break these chains.
Wrapped around this heart.
I don’t want you leaving,
I’m begging for mercy, oh to break these chains.
Oh heaven help me now,
Trade these shackles for a crown.
And I’m on my way, way down.

Listen
Bless my heart and bless my soul,
You can set my ass on fire.
Momma won’t you call me a doctor
Cause my temperature rising higher and higher.
Dip me in that cold muddy water, I think I need to be saved.
Unless someone breaks these chains

All that I’ve been given I give it to you.
I can’t stand here watching you fail to tell the truth.

Somebody break these chains.
Wrapped around this heart.
I don’t want you leaving,
I’m begging for mercy, oh to break these chains.
Oh heaven help me now,
Trade these shackles for a crown.
And I’m on my way
