12 Stones - Bitter

Thankfully, there's a little more to 12 Stones than living off the reflected glory of a lucky collaboration. Potter's Field, 12 Stones' second album, builds on the sound of their steadily-selling debut album as they continue their attempt to take up the mantle of former touring partners, Creed.

12 Stones is an incredible band, but not only in the genre of Christian rock, but in the rock genre as a whole. The talent of the band really shines on this one: the awesome, heavy guitar riffs, sweet drum beats, and incredible lyrics and vocal talent of Paul McCoy (he has a great singing voice and screams a little bit when it's necessary in the context of the songs) really leave the listener in awe.

They really have an uplifting message for Christians and non-Christians alike that I truly appreciate, but they are definitely not afraid to show their faith in Christ with their incredible words. This band really cares about their listeners - which is also very inspiring.
This is really an incredible compilation of songs. "Far Away" is an incredible smash hit about the feelings and pain someone is going through as his/her friend has committed suicide..... it is truly an intense and heartbreaking song that no rock fan should miss (and please don't think this is depressing music, because it's not..... it is music that's truly relevant to today's society). "Stay" and "Photograph" are a few more great hits off this one that are incredible. Really, the whole 12 Stones Potter's Field album is awesome - I can't even skip through a song because it is really that good!

12 Stones - Bitter Lyrics

Artist: 12 Stones
Album: Potter's Field
Year: 2004
Title: Bitter

Mother mother can you hear me, i keep trying
Just to find me all i know now, all you s how me,
Endless questions, hopeless ending

This bitter pill is pushing me away and now i feel
Like there's nothing left to say and i pretend to
Look the other way but in the end will i be okay,
Will i be okay

Father father will you be there as i cry out
Silent again turning colder, frozen deeper,
Numb to this dream sleeing within

Before i face another day, won't you let asleep,
Lost among the dreams that always comfort me
And before i find my feet, won't you show me
What i need, what i need to walk again
