Burden of a Day’s Mixed Drinks

I thought I knew, I swore I knew / but sour milk and honey, is not the taste of you

One of the great things about spotlighting a lyric from a band’s new release is that ripping a line or two from the rest of the body removes it from any context, so most of the time you end up with some absurd sounding sentence. An academic might call this “deconstruction,” but I like to call it “hilarious.”

Burden of a Day‘s ‘Oneonethousand,’ off of their new album of the same name, might come off as a little goofy if all you read was the pulled lined above, but like a lot of melodic metalcore bands, the subject matter is serious. Vocalist Kyle Tamosaitis wails about lost friendship and beliefs misplaced, using Old Testament imagery of milk and honey as symbols of wealth and good fortune. Without that little bit of historical-grammatical information the meaning isn’t quite clear, but it still makes for some humorous quotations.
