about

This is the second single released from our debut album "Phantom Limb". This song explores a dark and nihilistic view of our future that all of us have experienced at least once in our lives.

"The lyrics to this song came to me when I felt nothing that I thought mattered or would have any meaning.

In just a few short years everyone I've ever known will be dead along with myself and there won't be a whisper to remember it." - Matt Dana

lyrics

So as the sun sets behind us
and we know that it's gone,
get what you can then we're moving along.
In a minute you'll be sick of this song,
as it's passing it's pissing me off.
Pulled your head out of the sand.
Your naked body lays dead in my hands.
We know the brain is what houses the man,
so we pass him, we pass him along.

We've all got memories
(and when they fade away)
you'll get no sympathy.
We've all got memories
(and when I die/ so when I die)
you won't remember me./ will you remember me?

So what do you know that's worth keeping around?
When the fog rolls in we don't hear a sound.

So as it caves in behind us
and we know that we're trapped
it sinks in that there's no going back.
Gather around and scream through the cracks
that we're fading we're fading we're fading.
Pulled my head out of the sand.
My naked body has a terrible stench.
We know the brain is what houses the man
so we leave me (we leave me) we leave me alone.

We think we're the monthly centerfold,
but how many stories have never been told.
If I'm the monthly centerfold
then why am I haunted by these ghosts?

We've all got memories
(and when they fade away)
you'll get no sympathy.
We've all got memories
(and when I die/ so when I die)
you won't remember me./ will you remember me?

So what do you know
that's worth keeping around?
When the fog rolls in we don't hear a sound.
