you may have seen me mention that the song tougher colder killer on my new album was inspired by a short poem/story by my godfather sevan minasian. he was kind enough to send it my way today. here it is:
Message found on the corpse of a soldier.Dear Enemy, I have killed your son. He had caught sight of me and followed me. He had courage. I backtracked and shot him from ambush. He died quickly and with dignity. In the quiet after, I crawled over to him. I took him into my arms. I kissed him. He is my first kill. I die with him. My name is Tom Daly Jr.. Before I came to your country, I lived with my parents, Alice and Thomas E. Daly, in Springdale, Oklahoma.
