Jaws of Life (2022)

from The Rumor (2022) by BEFORE BRAILLE



If you like the “caught off guard…” part of this song, McKane Davis (Roger Over & Out) restructured the song to fit it in twice, in his cover of it. Check out his wonderful version on the “Before Braille Covers” comp.



I'm caught up
In the jaws of life
What can heal can also
Tear you up inside

Writing down your own anthem
You don't like the older one
I would stand at attention
For less than minimum

Wage your own forgotten wars
Trade honor for canker sores
Ghostly pride with matching tours
You're childish without the joy

I know that I said I would change
I know that I haven't changed
A shoulder to lean on
And then break
I'm barely breathing
With my status day to day

I’m caught off guard
By innocence
I cross my heart
Your influences pull you down
I swear it's not
The fault of mine
Or of the fault of anyone

So tell me what the guilt feels like
Are you swallowed in your jaws of life
When you strip people down
You'll see how
They don't need their cover
Is it clear and defined
When fists from a simple conflict rise (I could tell you things to shock you)
And we turn into monsters
We thought were once extinct.
