New Dustin Kensrue song!



From Alternative Press:

When former Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue began writing "It's Not Enough" a few years ago, he wasn't sure to which of his creative outlets it would belong. "I originally thought this would end up being a Thrice song," Kensrue tells AP. "But I never got around to finishing it until now."

The song will now be released on Kensrue's upcoming solo album, The Water And The Blood, set for release October 1 via BEC Recordings/Mars Hill Music.

"It's probably one of my favorite songs I've ever written and stoked for it to finally be done and seeing the light of day."

And here are the lyrics as posted on Dustin's twitter account:

Though all the wealth of men was mine to squander
And towers of ivory rose beneath my feet
Were palaces of pleasure mine to wander
The sum of it would leave me incomplete

Though every soul would hold my name in honor
And truest love was always by my side
My praises sung by grateful sons and daughters
My soul would never still be satisfied

It’s not enough, it’s not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It’s not enough, it’s not enough

Though I could live for all to lift them higher
Or spend the centuries seeking light within
Though I indulged my every dark desire
Exhausting every avenue of sin

It’s not enough, it’s not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It’s not enough, it’s not enough
I could right all wrongs, or ravage
Everything beneath the sun
It’s not enough, it’s not enough

To make me whole
It’s not enough, it never was
Awake my soul
It’s not enough, it never was

It’s not enough, it’s not enough
I could walk the world forever
Till my shoes were filled with blood
It’s not enough, it’s not enough
I could right all wrongs, or ravage
Everything beneath the sun
It’s not enough, it’s not enough
Though all would bow to me
Till I could drink my fill of fear and love
It’s not enough, it’s not enough
