about

Southern folk-rockers, Damned Rivers, are at it again. "Darkest Dawn" is the second single off of the Damned Rivers EP which is set to be released August 11th. Dirty guitars and wailing organs characterize this Americana jam.

lyrics

goddamn the ones who shrug us off and damn our brothers
I'll do my damnedest to see you through
I'm on my second year of living with the fear
I sense the darkest dawn coming for me and you

how can I come to be happy
if happiness never comes
I won't adorn this crown of frozen fingers
I'll never claim to be the captain of the ship
but when I see injustice
I'm gonna lead my crew against it

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but when I see you, I don't wanna be around

I fight the habits that have worked their way into my conscience
and shake loose the pebbles from the cliff
you are the passers by who stare into the ocean
you know not the danger you have missed
it's right behind you so

how can I come to be happy
if happiness never comes
I won't adorn this crown of frozen fingers
I'll never claim to be the captain of the ship
but when I see injustice
I'm gonna lead my crew against it

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but when I see you, I don't wanna be around

damn, damn, damn, I'm at it again
I'm choked by some words that I should have let in
but now I'm taking it to heart that's soiled on my sleeve
and if you're asking me to stay, I'm just dying to leave

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but goddamn the ones who shrug us off and damn our brothers
I'll do my best to let her down easy
