Inside ‘The Story Of My Life’

No Comments News

‘The Story Of My Life’ was originally written and recorded for ‘Defiant’ back In 2007 but we’ve given it the full lockdown treatment and it sounds very different to the original. Some may think it’s an anti-Christmas song but it’s really about the ever increasing commercialisation of Christmas, the unseen suffering of the animals whose bodies adorn dining tables and the debt people take on in order to buy next year’s trash.

The Story Of My Life

It’s the story of my life
Paralysed in the headlights
Looking out from the inside
Same old story of my life

The throbbing hangover of all of the years
The deep of midwinter that blows in my ears
Time for the lonely to sit and reflect
The cruel and unholy and all they neglect

Christmas is coming the noose getting tight
No more herald angels no more silent night
So pull out the plastic pay for it next year
It’s lost all it’s magic it’s so insincere

Oh Oh Oh

Feels like the whole world’s got in for me
Feels like it’s over
And it feels like the whole world’s got in for me
I don’t wanna be your enemy
No I don’t wanna be your enemy
No more….

It’s the story of my life paralysed in the headlights
Looking out from the inside same old story of my life

The cold’s coming closer it all goes to waste
My energy spent fixing smiles on my face
The time when the lonely affirm their belief
The slaughter of millions the corpse centrepiece

Christmas is coming the noose getting tight
No more herald angels no more silent night
So pull out the plastic pay for it next year
It’s lost all it’s magic it’s so insincere
So pull out the plastic pay for it next year
It’s lost all it’s magic
So pull out the plastic pay for it next year
It’s lost all it’s magic it’s so insincere

It’s the story of my life
