There is this beautiful song by
Green Carnation called
"9-29-045". I've listened to this song many many times, but I've always wondered what the title means. Does anybody know why they named it
Just a quick look-up points to it being the date 9/29/1945, which was right around the time WWII ended. Looking through the lyrics seems to hold this up.
All the violence a man can take
Referencing the violence and cruelty of the war.
Broken bones, and broken homes
Referencing what happens to families and countries when people get killed in war
Yes I failed and I can't go back/ I'm wasted beyond my years
Talking about how war ages you and that veterans have flashbacks
