I can smell the snow two days before it touches the ground

about

Here's a freebie to make up for our extremely slow output these days and to celebrate the second coming of winter (over here, at least).

lyrics

You... you can throw tantrums back,
be at each other's necks over nothing
I know

And you... you can disgrace your rivals
and bury your faces under bloody feathers
I know

And you can shove me until I fall
Whenever you want

And I, I can smell the snow two days before it touches the ground
Yet I, I will never feel nor know exactly what it'll cover

You... oh you can balance well
as long as your tampered scale doesn't falter
I know

And you... you can take a million lives
as long as the killing doesn't scare the puppy
I know

There's so much more you can do
and there is reason, too

And I, I can smell the snow two days before it touches the ground
Yet I, I will never feel nor know exactly what it'll cover

You... you can be all you want
and if that is measly cunts, then so be it
Just don't pretend to be forever
