about

This song tackles the feeling you get when you’re reaching out to someone for help. Sometimes, as much as you hear “everything will be fine in the end” you can’t quite wrap your mind around that.

Musically we’re really happy with how different this song is from a lot of our work. Really heavy, some odd time signatures, tons of distortion, and big beautiful noise to cap off the ending. - Mark

lyrics

If everyone gets what they deserve in the end
Why am I talking talking in circles
Repeating myself again
And if everyone gets what they deserve, we'd all be fine
But our dreams are in our sleep this time (and our nightmares are alive)

Everyone's trying to tell me that I'm strong
But in all honesty, I'm the weakest link in a chain of uncertainty

If everyone gets what they deserve in the end
Why am I talking talking in circles
Repeating myself again
And if everyone gets what they deserve, we'd all be fine
But our dreams are in our sleep this time (and our nightmares are alive)

Why does it feel like this life is over when it's only just begun
Stripped away and left for dead is not what I pictured at twenty-one
(at twenty-one)
