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: Curtain
Don't bother leaving me out
There's no other way I'd have it
It's a simple rule of thumb you've turned into a subtle habit
Well, you sound the same, but your words, they've changed
Your mind's made up and locked in
It's a picture perfect scene you've broken through and long forgotten

If its a story for another time
Don't bother telling it at all
Oh, you've gone and set my world on fire

On your mark, get set, and don't let go
Time is running out, it's quiet, and the curtain's falling slowly
How come no one told me, how come no one knows, no
How come no one knows how the story goes
On your mark, get set, and don't let go
Time is running out, it's quiet, and the curtain's falling slowly
How come no one told me, how come no one knows
No, how come no one knows what's behind closed doors

Sympathy won't get you far
It's warped your destination
It's an honest way to live when fairytales are your foundation
Well, you're out of luck and you don't mind much
No, it's all too much to take in
You've grown so tired of hearing why that you've scraped one last confession

On your mark, get set, and don't let go
Time is running out, it's quiet, and the curtain's falling slowly
How come no one told me, how come no one knows, no
How come no one knows how the story goes
On your mark, get set, and don't let go
Time is running out, it's quiet, and the curtain's falling slowly
How come no one told me, how come no one knows
No, how come no one knows what's behind closed doors
Track Name: Sephorus
I took a walk up to the waterfront to watch the sky
And saw the colors catch illusions under different lights
I swear there's something dedicated to the shallow tides
The waves move back and forth the gravity the force they can't deny
Resistant reasons to exist beyond the other side
I must have missed what you dismissed as being sanctified

Hey
We're drifting farther away
There's nothing left to take
The sun'll come up no it doesn't matter if we stay around here or not
I think we've lost our way

I took a break from being front and center of the crime
The sun and moon and stars will burn out bright when they collide
I swear there's something lost that we have found among the flowers
The air moves back and forth, the time falls short along the seperate hours
Resistant reasons to exist beyond the other side
I must have missed what you dismissed as being sanctified

Hey
We're drifting farther away
There's nothing left to take
The sun'll come up no it doesn't matter if we stay around here or not
I think we've lost our way

I got caught in a landslide
Another hole in the great divide
Forgotten moment in our eyes
A hotshot, melting pot, serve behind his blind spot
Time of our lives

Caught in a landslide
Caught in a landslide
Forgotten moment in our lives
A mismarked caveat, disembark a loan shark
Caught by surprise

Hey
We're drifting farther away
There's nothing left to take
The sun'll come up no it doesn't matter if we stay around here or not
I think we've lost our way

Hey
We're drifting farther away
There's nothing left to take
The sun'll come up no it doesn't matter if we stay around here or not
I think we've lost our way
I think we've lost our way
What are you doing today?
What are you doing today?
Track Name: Stray Dogs
If anyone is out there watching
Every move you make
Would you feel afraid
They'll see your lows and your mistakes

Determined not to let you talk
A higher price to pay
You'll hate it anyway
It's never close enough
To what you want to say

I got dressed in the dark today
It didn’t change a thing about me
I didn't hold out for a hand-me-down
Sweater vest or pockets full of jade and bronze

And if read the headlines right this time
I'm gonna make it out to New Orleans
I'm gonna hope this whole night can hold its own against the tide
And be the sailboat captain in our dreams

I wish I was
Falling asleep
Instead of
Calling out to stray dogs
Roaming the streets
They've got an
Infrastructure held out
By a hierarchy

Eleven boxes filled with organs
And stringless violins
You're stretching out the skin
The temporary hole we're in

Travel to the overcrowded thread where I sit
Germinating diamond cane
Breaking out the sand like champagne
Taking cover under the southern rain

I wish I was
Falling asleep
Instead of
Calling out to stray dogs
Roaming the streets
They've got an
Infrastructure held out
By a hierarchy

The strays are on the run again

Don't look back, and tell them not to run
We haven't been home long enough to know where we went wrong
Don't look back, and tell them not to run
We haven't been home long enough

Water above
Wasted on the young
And I'll be there with bells on
When I feel the time has come
And no man is an island
Not every road leads to Rome
And I'll be there with bells on
When I feel the time has come
To lead the strays back home

The strays are on the run again
Track Name: This is Tragedy
Drawing lines across a map
Here's to hoping we can find you
It's a different world without you
Everything felt so much lighter then

And here we are, two years too late
Your name's still on the radio
Your face is on the telephone pole
Right outside my front door

Holding hands and lighting candles
No one else could understand those
Nights we stood outside your porch
And let the city lights define ourselves

And here I am, without you, asking
Who I'd be without the memories
Of you and me
Reality would bring me to my knees

Love
This is love, this is love
This is tragedy
This is losing you right
When you're next to me
This is holding you down
To forget you know my name
Love
This is love, this is love
This is overcast
This is letting you go
When you want me back
But what do I know about
Love

A light polluted urban skyline
It's impossible to feel fine
When I know you're somewhere out there
Looking for a way to get here

And it might be like my dreams
I see you coming back to me
What goes up has gravity
To bring it back down to diplomacy

Love
This is love, this is love
This is tragedy
This is losing you right
When you're next to me
This is holding you down
To forget you know my name
Love
This is love, this is love
This is overcast
This is letting you go
When you want me back
But what do I know about love
About love?

You say you love me but its not enough
You need something you can't take your eyes off
Take your eyes off of me
This is tragedy

Love
This is love, this is love
Its a mystery
When exactly you'll
Fall to its ecstacy
What do I know about love
About love? About

Love
This is love, this is love
This is tragedy
This is much more work
Than I thought it'd be
Maybe I'm not cut out for love
Maybe I'm not cut out for us

Take your eyes off of me
This is tragedy
Track Name: Masquerade
Every white lie I've ever told
Hunted me down and burned my soul
Every ticking time bomb never went off
Every misconception told I'm wrong

Every last debtor will pay their debts
Every last moment is filled with regrets
And none of this will stop me coming back
From coming back again

Light it up and take my breath away
For another chance to relive today
Falling faster in this masquerade
Don’t you know
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong

Second to none you chase the past
Memories fade you built to last
Outrunning the road that fell apart
Painted on your failed scars

Now you walk in separate worlds
Change your fate as it unfurls
Breaking down is not enough
Stay awake I’ll sway your love

Light it up and take my breath away
For another chance to relive today
Falling faster in this masquerade
Don’t you know
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong

Hold on to whatever makes you young

Light it up and take my breath away
For another chance to relive today
Falling faster in this masquerade
Don’t you know
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong
This is not where you belong
