about

The Siege Perilous Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Formed in 2008, the Siege Perilous is a melodic Wisconsin alternative rock outfit that delivers an engaging live show that draws from three albums worth of original arena-style anthems in the vein of the Goo Goo Dolls, Jimmy Eat World, and Jack's Mannequin.

"A sound similar to some of the classic alternative albums of the 90's, with a updated influence of today's indie superstars."

Track Name: Downer Races
Break into the day
It was touch and go for me
Because time alone was never on our side

Tidal eyes from years away
Nothing changes in the shade
But our history can always be revised

And the sounds of open windows, up and down the street
Concrete shadows of the trees, of the trees

When you fall asleep, and your eyes close
It's nice to finally meet you, I've been locked inside a smile
We fell along the way and we both know
The Downer races run back to the place we left behind

Someone had to stay
There's no room for company
Seems this duel cannot be settled by a tie

We can leave for our own sakes
But the storm that we will face
Will engulf us or leave us high and dry

And the sounds from Oakland windows, up and down the street
Concrete shadows of the trees, of the trees

When you fall asleep, and your eyes close
It's nice to finally meet you, I've been locked inside a smile
We fell along the way and we both know
The Downer races run back to the place we left behind (behind, behind)

[instrumental bridge]

When you fall asleep, and your eyes close
It's nice to finally meet you, I've been locked inside a smile
We fell along the way and we both know
The Downer races run back to the place we left behind
