about

This song started as Kenny playing a weird riff in the dark in his unfinished basement. Three years later, we're still not really sure what it is.

lyrics

A silent alarm deep within
Each day ends and begins anew
In strictest time the shadows dance
The clock betrays him, nothing to lose
Puts on his shoes, laces half-tied
Closes the door, can’t stomach goodbyes
Closes his eyes, the pressure takes him away

As the world explodes into colors and candlelight
You watched as the shoreline collapsed in the night

Why do I assume that you’ll be at the end of the earth, waiting for me?
Echoing the ebb and flow of your breathing in the wind, your soul
Subconscious sleep carries him down through his memories, his mind set at ease.
No more enemies, the pressure takes him away

As the world explodes into colors and candlelight
You watched as the shoreline collapsed in the night

Now we’ll carry this flag unfurled
This is not where we are supposed to be
Can’t you see we are not meant for this world
And now you know I’m not as strong as I was before
So without you I will fall
Leave it all – we are not meant for this world

The definition of damnation roars
A shouting voice, a proclamation soars
And now you feel what you could not have seen
The secret lie of someone in between

A silent alarm
Deep within
