lyrics

We all know what it's like
To be in fear & be in pain,
But in yours you did unspeakable things.
And as my heart gets past the shock
It's filling up with such disdain,
But honestly my apathy was just as much to blame.


Now you have to atone for all the lives you chose to take,
And I must bear the weight of all the ones I couldn't save.


This is how we'll always be
Me and all my enemies
Trapped in this imperfect skin
Until redemption


When we catch you in a lie,
The rest of us feel justified,
And It's never hard for me to say you're wrong.

It's easier to focus on
Your flaws instead of mine
But I know that I'll screw up again,
No matter how I try.


This is how we'll always be,
Me and all my enemies
Trapped in this imperfect skin
Until redemption

This is how I've always been,
I fall and then get up again,
And pray for the cycle to end

[Bridge]
But I have hope
I'm keeping it inside
This broken heart
This broken world
Our broken promises aside.

I found my second chance,
So maybe I can help someone else to do the same
Yeah you could do the same,
you could do the same


But this is how we'll always be,
me & all my enemies,
trapped in this imperfect skin.

This is how we'll always be,
all my friends, and you and me
We're waiting for redemption

Drawing inspiration from mid-2000s emo/pop punk and a few decades' worth of video games, the band specializes in upbeat tunes, with prominent melodies, distinct guitars, and emotionally-charged lyrics.

The band debuted with the Glowing in the Dark EP in November 2014, and recently released The Better Friends EP in early 2016.
