No Peace of Mind

I’m cheating on this post cause it’s being written after the Hiatus one, but being published on an earlier date. Fuck it.

This was the second time I wrote a complete lyric since the days of Bulletproof, and also the second time I wrote something that’s now being used by another band, sang by another person. The first time was for Never Fail, with “Living Fast”.

This one was written for my friends Cold Blooded, and was thought specifically for them, so although I ended up writing something a bit personal, I still tried to put in their own flavor to it.

Momma once told me
“Money will bring you greater things in life”
Fuck it, I can’t agree
More money more strife
It only stays gold until the turn of the tide
Lost out of love, lost out of sight
These scars they burn these scars they bite
These scars they keep me up through the night

The road is fucked, so enjoy the ride
Maybe the grass is greener on the other side
BUT I STILL CAN’T GET NO PEACE OF MIND

These bitches they all want the lust, the fucking goodlife
Sharp teeth and flesh cutting knifes
Said it before: more money, more strife
Eyes on the price, never get behind
BUT I STILL CAN’T GET NO PEACE OF MIND

They are now playing this song live as “No Peace of Mind” (or at least I think that’s what they decided to call it), and I think it’s their best song to date. Kizz did an awesome job adapting my lyrics, and he doesn’t sing this complete version, but still it’s very complete. To everyone diggin’ the band already, now you have the chance to sing-along to this one too on a next show.
