Feel the rush, feel the rush in the back of your head "Breathe it in, breathe it in," isn't that what they said As you stood in the night 'neath the glow of the fires? Watch it burn, watch it burn, watch it reach through the night Feel the heat, feel the heat as you bask in its light As the puppets hang upon their wires dead winter dead

Dead Winter Dead - an interesting enough name for an album, though it doesn't refer to any sort of zombified (cool as that would be) or nuclear winter. Dead Winter Dead, as a matter of fact, is a concept album which largely deals with the Bosnian War in the period extending from November of 1994 to Christmas Eve of the same year. The only difference is that in the Savatage telling of the story, Smailovic is killed by mortar fire the Christmas Eve of 1994, whereas he's actually still alive today. In the story, his death ends up causing a truce between the Serb boy and Muslim girl around which the story of Dead Winter Dead takes place, and so he ends up telling her that he's not just a uniform and blah blah blah in "Not What You See," and they end up walking away from the war with each other in. the end. Yeh" Bleh" Whatever.
