ANACRUSIS

About This Song


The Screams and Whispers album by Anacrusis is a highly overlooked and under-valued thrash metal classic. This band brought tons of prog-metal and atmospheric elements to early 90’s thrash, combining elements of Dream Theater and Pantera. The track Grateful, featured here as a vintage label typographic poster, is just an honest song about being grateful for what you have. Now defunct, they band regrouped briefly in the early 2010’s. Below is a live clip of this track. Check out the beginning and main riff throughout this song, it’s wicked heavy.

LYRICS /

I sense the tension
A thickness in the air
The filthy air of our morality
Misplaced affection
In lost and lonely stares
Where urge ignores morality

I sense confusion
Suspicion in the air
Untreated wounds of some dishonesty
Seeking comfort
The strength of friendly ties
Only truth can heal insecurity

But I’m grateful to be far from harm
Safe within peaceful arms
Grateful knowing safety’s warmth
And I’m grateful not to have to face
These days alone

I’m grateful…
Grateful…
Grateful…
Grateful…

I’m grateful…
Grateful…
Grateful…
Grateful…

But I’m grateful to be far from harm
Safe within peaceful arms
Grateful knowing safety’s warmth
And I’m grateful not to have to face
These days alone
