Song of the Day: Scales of Motion - Hard Rains

By in News | No Comments

Scales of Motion’s latest release was eerily-prophetic. It’s a song strewn with gnomic phrases like “This whole year has been one long November”. Stylistically, it feels like a classic emo song, reminiscent of Mineral or early Cool Hand Luke. Check it out below.

Hard Rains by Scales of Motion

Lyrics:

Take me down to the edge of the river
To watch the banks be reshaped as it flows.
When I was young, all of life was a blanket.
Now I sleep shivering in the cold.

There will come hard rains,
And they may wash away
The things you thought you’d always know.
But there in your front yard,
The seeds of something else.
The ground begins to swell.
All will be well.

I’ve had teeth as long as I can remember,
But I keep dreaming that they’ll all fall out.
This whole year has been one long November.
When, oh Lord, will our March come around?

There will come hard rains,
And they may wash away
The things you thought you’d always know.
But there in your front yard,
The seeds of something else.
The ground begins to swell.
All will be well.

And the sun will always rise,
The leaves fall then regrow.
The change is there to show us a new road.
And as dark as I have been,
You will make me glow.

Take me down to the edge of the river
To watch the banks be reshaped as it flows.
This whole year has been one long November,
But I’m content to wait and see where it goes.
