Generic Ratings: 1: Crap. 2: Okay. 3: Good. 4: Great
So many of the songs on Know Your Enemy are in danger of getting lost because they don’t stand out from the other 15 tracks. That’s the main problem with Dead Martyrs – it just feels like another album track similar to many others; scratchy guitars, basic hook, simple lyrics. As you’ll see on these posts I have favourites from that album with others will probably overlook for the same reasons I overlook this one – there isn’t anything tangible I can say to describe why I feel this one is inferior to others – it simply doesn’t resonate with me.
Misheard Lyrics: 1. Dead martyrs or Steam Runners
2. Had a penguin but got no rent/Had a pigeon but got no rent/Rather begin but I had no wind
3. Got no future, just extensive dead eyes
Actual Lyrics: 1. Dead martyrs all stigmartyrs
2. Had a beginning but it got no end
3. Got no future, just dead stars for dead eyes
