Cover Design by Amir Hamizadeh and Trevor Giove

lyrics

Nothing beyond these scraps of freedom
Thin wire rails along this train
Outline black lung conversations meant to
Turn their eyes away

Silhouettes carved out of blistering
Reminders that we have to pass
Along a momentary overture
A prelude to the past

It won't let me breathe on my own
It's like somebody stole
The oxygen out of the room

Someone start the car
You're only running
Cuz you're right about one thing
Someone start the car
You're only running
Cuz you're right about one thing
Someone start the car
You're only running from
The rush of the noise
Someone fell asleep
It's coming back to keep
The hush in your voice

Tie me down and bind me when I'm
Least expecting company
I'll soldier on cemented to the
Roar of vacant symphonies

Deadlines bruise the innocence
That narrows down the human strain
And vertigo's the cure we found
For those who choose to stay in place

It won't let me walk on my own
It's like somebody stole
The ground beneath my feet

It feels like the end
It sounded better in our heads
It feels like the end
Some things are better left unsaid

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."
