Through the panes of broken glass See the lessons of the past Watch hypocrisy unfold From the mouths of open goals Fractured earth, November sky Minds too young to doubt the lie Changing winds and shifting gales Find the secrets on the dial In the shadow of the style The devil’s in the detail Changing winds and shifting gales (So my brothers fell like rain) Hoist the flag and set the sails (So my brothers fell like rain) Tie your faith onto the rails So my brothers fell like rain Memories too close to the bone The stare from angels made of stone Stood like dominoes in chains The fate of youth lay in the hands That built their castles made of sand So my brothers fell like rain Changing winds and shifting gales (So my brothers fell like rain) Hoist the flag and set the sails (So my brothers fell like rain) Tie your faith on to the rails So my brothers fell like rain They filled our hearts they filled our minds They’d be safe behind the lines There’d be no way that we could fail Hoist the flag and set the sails The world we knew would leave our hearts And crumble like a house of cards A certain sense of freedom

Starfall 04:14
I watch them roll and burn They wait for your return Falling from their eyes Gazing at the skies Falling like stars Falling like stars I watch their rise and fall (We freeze like stones as we hit the ground) The light connects us all (We dare not breathe or make a sound) Reflected in our eyes (Our stillness is our sole defence) The Devil in disguise Lest we fall in every sense Falling like stars Falling like stars Falling like stars Falling like stars This is no place for hope This is no place for faith This is no place for love No matter what you hear No matter what they tell you This is no place for glory And this is how we feel As we ride this storm of steel There's nothing to be gained Nothing to be saved that could be worth any of this If you ever get this note From the pocket of my coat I'll have put down my gun The peace of the done

Zero 02:05
Give me grace to meet the hand that strikes me down Bury my faith in this bitterly contested ground We didn't want this We didn't make this Still we give ourselves retrieving your mistakes We didn't want this We didn't ask for this Still we lie in the beds that you make And terror sweeps the face at zero We didn't want this We didn't make this Still we give ourselves retrieving your mistakes We didn't want this We didn't ask for this Still we lie in the beds that you make And terror strikes the face at zero

Remember 05:55
Just before the dream begins To fade into the day I’m holding on for dear life To remember us this way Faces in the photograph Yellowed by the years To be young in a peaceful time Strangers to our fears Sleep on the honed edge of a knife This is the measure of my life This is my testament of youth I live and breathe the bitter truth How we played the game so well So many well spent days Trace the lines of all the years I wear them on my face To be young in a violent time Keeping hopes alive Open hearts begin to search The wreckage of our lives Remember how we were expected to survive Remember how we were so glad to be alive After the earth had taken every drop of rain I looked at you and asked did we achieve our aim Left with the mist that lay between us Left with the words that were never said Our fears outweighed the hopes of reason We tipped the scales and left it for dead Two brothers looking for forgiveness Two brothers asking for the truth Each one is fighting for a freedom Both red in claw both red in tooth Remember how we were expected to survive Remember how we were so glad to be alive After the earth had taken every drop of rain I looked at you and asked did we achieve our aim

Hypnotized 04:18
We’ve been hypnotized. And analysed. Multiplied and paralysed. We’ve been poked and prodded. Transistorised. We’ve been kept in the dark. But modified. Made to smile. At the spies in the skies. A lab rat. A hard hat With a handicap. We’ve been told to wear. A hi-viz vest. They’ve taken over. From our Sunday best. Hypnotized. Sterilised. Analysed. Desensitised. Right honourable. Yeah that’s a joke. Chauffeur driven, second home. We hope you choke. A single voice heard as one. Now that’s a vote. Hypnotized. Sterilised. Magnified. Hypersized. Transistorised. We’re qualified. Unorganised and pacified. Undignified. Tranquilized. Hypnotized.

about

The Wait is a 6 track concept album. It centers around the experiences of a young WW1 soldier leaving his homeland, fighting a war he can't understand and his later recollections of the futility of it all. A concept piece in it's own right, The Wait forms part of the unfolding Freedom To Glide collection of WW1 inspired releases.
