killing fields official video
'Killing Fields' penned by Daly is an introspective look the culpability of non participation in evildoing and equating it with the guilt involved in Catholicism in the refrain 'I'm Guilty', however the song ends with a rallying cry to 'Free Yourself'. Stylistically the track has echoes of early 90's funk rock and grunge reminiscent of bands such as RHCP and Pearl Jam. The track was recorded at SCAD studios by Clea Cullen who also contributed backing vocals for the song and mixed by Oisin Daly.
Killing Fields lyrics
Have you seen the Killing Fields Or has the veil come down
How can I live with myself with my head stuck in the ground
Can you hear the piper coming back around
How can you with all your hands so firmly planted in the sand?
I can see quite clearly inside these walls of this world I've built myself
Please don't remind me of the death outside my door
We all try to save ourselves but something gotta give
We've all lost sight of this and there nothing we can do to save us now
Crucify me (I'm Guilty) Absolve me (I'm Guilty) Show me the easy way out
