Lyrics & Interpretations: Distain

Sometimes when I write music I do it from a place of consciousness; trying to express something over a predetermined theme. When I wrote these lyrics for Anton and Rafael, I didn’t however. It was a sort of flow that started with expressing thoughts on cognition, drives and sufferings which are universal, that we all (or at least most of us) experience. And in the end, I just ended up in a place where it seemed that it all related to Game of Thrones, so I ended up giving it an homage-verse to GoT. Enjoy!

Mentally, we might just try the same

we both work so hard to wash away this stain

we are left with images of distaste and distain

but now we aim for another distant terrain

 

We all bare rightful claims

we all loads and pains

hunger pangs, unmet demands

ways we fail, ways we strand

we are starved for games and thrones

a hunger burning in our bones

life trots on as if we know

anything about the path down which we go

but we’re never sure

we’re never sure

 

Mentally, we might just try the same

we both work so hard to wash away this stain

we are left with images of distaste and distain

but now we aim for another distant terrain

where the difference is who reigns,

who’s in control, in charge

no more campaigns

 

You were Daenerys, I was a simple Dothraki

became the Loras to your Renly

now you’re wild like Joffrey, unchecked by Cersei

but winter is coming, oh lord of light – help me

 

Rafael Cerato ”Distain” featuring Jonatan Bäckelie is out now!
