Here we are again you take your time too much it hurts to feel your nails on my face I wonder if this what I want Do you feel like we're all we need? When all we have is out of reach You're dreaming again My fears have all come true the nerves have settled in once you know that things wont change you just get used to it Do you feel like we're all we need? When all we have is out of reach You're dreaming again

Umbra 06:00
I'm leaving I'm sinking I don't expect you to be with me Much lower Don't bother It's only darkness in the end So heavy Its hurting It serves to bring me down I'm fading Dissolving Falling into the underground Don't you want to see You're suffocating me

Existence 01:45
(I want to exist)

You're circling patiently hoping for what's left of me The shelter that's housing fear its not what its supposed to be Its easy to give in Its easy to give in now When you are alone in here I am broken and out of place Sometimes it gets harder to breathe But I'm here with all I can trust I am under the shade now You'll never find me in here This is my environment The shelter that's housing fear its not what its supposed to be Its easy to give in Its easy to give in now When you are alone in here I am broken and out of place Sometimes it gets harder to breathe But I'm here with all I can trust I am under the shade now

Estranged in my own fantasy I don't know what I am anymore Stuck in loops, I don't belong anywhere When all I am is Tired of being tired My arms don't work as they should I guess I gave up cause I'm Tired of being tired

Luminous 04:51
I was wondering how you were doing this year it seems so long ago when I last felt this way I wish I could turn back the time change all the things I said Crawling through the mess I made tangled in thoughts of being a waste burn these strings and make a blaze I wish I could turn back the time change all the things I said You are all that's left

Dilation 05:21
You once called me a liar Then crawled back into my hands A room filled with desire with no one to understand Are you watching me? Come closer and you'll see Its hard to keep dreaming when all i do is stay awake my eyes just keep dilating with those thoughts running through my head Are you watching me? You once called me a dreamer Then crawled back into my veins A room filled with fire with only you to understand Are you watching me? Come closer and you'll see Come closer and you'll see

(Deep with the first dead lies London's daughter, Robed in the long friends, The grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother, Secret by the unmourning water Of the riding Thames. After the first death, there is no other.) Excerpt from Dylan Thomas, 'A Refusal to Mourn the Death, by Fire, of a Child in London'.

You keep making mistakes lying here with mirrors these reflections don't lie to me I wish I could be there be at the end no past no future no time or place Its always the same things that keep you from remembering how you lost yourself here You keep making mistakes lying here with mirrors these reflections don't lie to me I wish I could be there be at the end no past no future no time or place

about

After nearly a 3 year break, we are back with a brand new album called 'A Brief Escape From Life', a hard hitting, riff heavy album with also some lush, dreamlike sounds. The album deals with themes such as social isolation, losing time and dreaming of things that could have been; an escapism of life.

We decided to draw inspiration from our past records to create this album, like 'King Defeatism', 'Mirroring' and 'Fields of Vision', but also adding a new twist to it so the album has its own identity. I guess you can call it a complete refinement of our sound overall.

Thank you so much for the support, it has been a while since our last album (we used to release one nearly every year!), so we hope this album will make up for lost time!
