Some say it’s the fault of our fathers
Some say it’s the fault in our dreams
Some say it’s the cold, for whatever that means
A wild horse is better than no horse
The winter will tear at the seams
And I like the cold, for whatever that means

It’s bitter cold and white
A candle on a table
I drink the poison wine
A friend inside a stable

Some met with their lovers at leisure
Some met with their lovers at night
Some met with the devil by candlelight
A blind horse is better than no horse
I stay with what’s left to atone
We crucified silver on houses of stone

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
