lyrics

It's not everyday you put your back against the wall
And by the time you take the last shot to the heart the feeling's gone
The black top held our feet up for as long as we could stand
And I remember making faces, writing our future in the sand

Sleep comes to those who won't stay awake
Can you feel the pull of the ocean's waves
Overlooking the horizon of a downcast day
Cuz the future's always brighter than the road you pave

I've been down and out and lost along the years
But nothing gets me more than when I'm charting all my fears
I tried to play the game, I bet my share, I spun the wheel
And all I got from that was taking another chance at something real

Sleep comes to those who won't stay awake
You can feel the pull of the ocean's waves
Overlooking the horizon of a downcast day
Cuz the future's always brighter than the road you pave

The road you pave
The road you pave
The road you pave

A postcard to devotion, put your thoughts and words to motion
Set your scarlet heart on fire and pray to God you've made it in
Just because you don't find answers
Doesn't mean you don't take chances
Give a moment to remember what's been keeping you alive

The future's always brighter than the road you pave
It's a centralized reminder of the good old days
A vicarious solution to the black and gray
Cuz the future's always brighter than the road you pave

Sleep comes to those who won't stay awake
Can you feel the pull of the ocean's waves
Overlooking the horizon of a downcast day
Because the future's always brighter than the road you pave

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."
