Song of the Day – Blood In the Tears (Demon Hunter Month. Lyrics Included + Acoustic Video) From World Is A Thorn Album (2010)

26 Jan

Blood In the Tears by Demon Hunter is a song from their fifth full-length album, 2010’s The World Is A Thorn.

Blood in the Tears marks the final track on the regular edition of 2010’s The World Is A Thorn, Demon Hunter’s fifth full-length album, and is a criminally overlooked slower, but not too slow, ballad from the band. I love the feel of this song, which has a harsh tone to it while also remaining hopeful. It straddles an interesting line, as it talks about having love for your enemies and praying for them to know the pain of Christ suffering for them, just as they want to bring pain on others. This song also is interesting musically, it’s definitely not metal, but it sounds very different from their previous slower songs. It even uses autotune, and yet places it in the perfect spot to elevate the song.

Lyrics:

Don’t come on quietly when you draw near
Don’t go on lightly
Don’t leave me here
I wither quickly in winter’s cold, but carry onward like I was told

And I wait for a sign

Like blood in the tears of all my enemies (So they will see)
Knowing the pain the way they should
Blood in the tears of all my enemies (Given to me)
Leaving a trail to where you stood

And when it’s quite, when you can hear, I beg you take me away from here

Cleansing red, wake the dead

——-

Even better than the normal version of the song is the Acoustic version of Blood in the Tears by Demon Hunter, available exclusively as a video on the Deluxe Edition of The World Is A Thorn. It’s absolutely fantastic!

About Demon Hunter Month
January 2013 is dedicated to the Christian metal band Demon Hunter, arguably my favorite band; and will feature songs from their entire catalog featured daily throughout the month, one a day. Whether you like metal, believe in God or not, check these songs out as you may be pleasantly surprised and hopefully you will discover some new-to-your-ears music to enjoy. Demon Hunter’s sound is extremely diverse, not all songs feature screams and growls, some are slow, sung ballads; others are heartfelt, all are deep with powerful lyrics that will make you think and ponder, as the sound takes you away.
