The blood in our veins Holds the memory of who we used to be In ritual, in sacrifice Bleed it from ourselves and we set it free. Like dead angels falling out of the sky Like the poison in my eye The only thing I offer you. Free man, never stray far His only light a dying star Creation cation You lost your pretty head to the flashing lights. Dream it, in opium The sun burns all creation. And now our love is just a hole in the sky From the sun we always knew would die Black wings we made to fly. I can't tell if I'm getting through Awaiting the end of you. So we blacked out all the sky And we lost our only way Chasing lights Now all the machines watch us die Like a glitch in the electric eye Watching over you Watching over you Watching over you. The blood in our veins Holds the memory of who we used to be.
What Strung Out give us with Black Out The Sky is not an entirely acoustic endeavor. Drums permeate most of the 8 songs on this release in some form or another. As do an array of instruments played by an incredibly talented group of veteran musicians. Still, though this record has an acoustic theme going for it, it feels musically uneven. We get glimpses of that dark tone here and there on this record and it works so well. Not to mention, that eerie sound fits the cover art of this album, dark, devilish and perhaps even a little satanic, in the best kind of way. The originals on Black Out The Sky either hit hard or miss the mark completely. First single, Town Of Corazon, is simply an acoustic song and while catchy enough, it fails to excite. Duke Of Sorrow is delivered to us with a country pop sheen with Cruz singing yet another song about the days of yore.
