Song of the Week #59: State of Man "Swallow Your Fears"  
In a week when I’ve been spinning the new David Gray repeatedly, 5 all-new Trans-Siberian Orchestra tracks are unveiled, the new A Fine Frenzy crosses my path, and I’m seeing long-time favorites Heart, I’m pulling from the ‘it was a song I listened to a lot a week or so ago, but not so much this week….

State of Man: "Swallow Your Fears"


Pure melodic, anthemic, windows down turned up loud goodness.

Their new album is good, not stellar, but some good melodic rock tracks with powerful vocals.

Enjoy.

Swallow Your Fears

Say what you want to say
but you know there is something in the way
always something in the way
Don't act like nothings wrong
when your past seems to haunt you every day
and you know you're so afraid to love

Swallow Your Fears
swallow the things that hold you back
That hold you back from living life
Swallow Your Fears
Swallow the things that hold you back
That hold you back from living life

There's nothing you can do
to erase the wounds that only time can heal (that only time can heal)
but all you've got to lose
is the time it takes to know
how you feel when you know you're so afraid to love

I know sometimes it's hard
we all feel heartache
but if you learn to trust again
you can be free from fear
you don't have to be alone
you can find what you want
if you wash away the pain and learn to trust again

Say what you want to say
but you know there is something in the way
always something in the way
