lyrics

Where do I begin
A life lived in doubt
Ain't no life at all

Carrying weight
Holding a heavy mind
Blame and guilt course through my veins
Like a sickness pounding in my heart
Coarse exhalations, from lungs so worn
Weathered skin, tattered and torn

What is left for me
With aspirations and dreams
Hopes held so high
Blame, guilt, punishment and fear
Leave me grounded,
I'm scared to death of failure
But I can't let this go any longer
I need you within arms reach
Oh to keep you
Oh to keep you

Charmed by foreign tongues
That voice carries with such delicacy
Like satin falling from a contoured nightstand
A bird trapped in a cage
Heart held in a rusted embrace
When all you need
Is a breath of fresh air

You are a cardinal so bright
Flight feathers removed,
Trapped in a cage of white
To keep you at arms length
Is to clip your elegant wings
I still haven't found the strength,
Within to let this all out.

Holding myself back,
A Conscience riddled with regret
Guilt rings loud
In the back of my head (In the back of my head)
Past mistakes i've made
Burn such a fickle flame
But they still cloud the road ahead
I long for just one night of peaceful sleep
This uncertainty could Be the death of me

You are a cardinal so bright
Flight feathers removed,
Trapped in a cage of white
To keep you at arms length
Is to clip your elegant wings
I still haven't found the strength,
Within
To let this all out

Where do we go from here
Does this mean I'm nothing?
Where do we go from here?
Does this mean It's nothing?
Where do we go from here
Does this mean I'm something?
Where do we go from here?
Does this mean It's something
I still haven't found the strength,
Within
To let this all out
I still haven't found the strength,
Within
To let this all out

about

Surroundings Perth, Australia

Following the success of 2014’s debut album “Of Bane Burden & Change” Surroundings spent most of 2015 in search of two new members to develop their unique take on modern heavy music - one unafraid to draw influence from forgotten or unfashionable styles to make its point. The new lineup is their strongest yet, and the new single “Elizabeth” is the perfect showcase. ... more
