Butchered I owe my life Were in denial One thing, is always on my mind Relaxing, impossible it dawns We fear the very foundations of our existence Even though the will has gone It’s pointless; give me a reason to stay The fight for life is near. I find a path Give me a reason to stay Three choices choice one, Do we take the shit you give? Choice two, leave you rotting here Choice three is worthless I never wanted to be the one I always thought I could carry on my life Living it alone, never making waves Two things I want to leave behind; The world’s selfish point of view The world’s ignorance of our past existence Even though the will has gone It’s pointless; give me a reason to stay The fight for life is near. I find a path Give me a reason to stay I will never find my way But I will always stand here brave
What We Are Entitled I will be the one to tell you the fine line I will be the one to say “pleading insane” Why were the wisest of us forced to regret Why in such a time of need? Bleed and let it go Caught in the crossfire The end of a Dynasty For our family we try We fight for a false ideal, we cry Wait for me, overlook my failures Glorify murder One last time for me I do this for us I fight for what we are One man alive can cause such change My devotion for what we believe to be right Today and always We blame our sins Oh the risk was high, but we pushed hard And now we lye, here amongst the dead And now we see, that were alone And now we see, the truth that I regret the risks I take Wait for me, overlook my blind days
Revelation 03:53
Revelation My feet does touch the ground The dirt feels warm and dry Listen to me when I tell you the outcome To find my way beyond this maze Over and over humanity lies Form an answer Designate the free I'm just a shade, A fragment of the man I was See these eyes? They look upon a lifeless sky Everything has passed, You and I will now realise that it came to me in a dream Leave in silence, do not pass the blame All eyes, focus on the stars Shooting heaven, fallen angel I have now forgotten the lecture I have to take whatever blow I'm dealt Clench my fists and reconstruct your face One more time in this life I am pariah, held lower This is not the path I chose myself Yet I walk this road alone my core is stone Like the earth I'm spared from thought and heart, Taken for granted I've seen this story in a dream We breed in violence, thrive on others shame Sore eyes see nothing past the lies Your world is holographic, and unkind Its driving me insane A fragment of the man I once was
Novation 06:26
Novation This is the way it’s meant to be my decision to free my soul believe in yourself when all those around you have proved themselves hollow I've seen it and breathed it and I cannot stay here no more we parted and we are now free You seek comfort and solace and you long for their arms around you you can only see, what you want to see free your eyes from this pain and tyranny I fled in silence, as I built up my stubborn defences against all advice. Lost my site, my direction and free will What’s happening to me? Why can’t I recognise what i am I'm the monster that's killing my world Break? for all that was sacred for all of the love that we gave it We Scream If you birth it then why would you leave it alone as you're watching it burn do you feel t he pain? if you left it then start to believe it you fool as you're watching it drown do you feel no shame Break dreams and bones all the same as break hearts and skulls like they're nothing you save this land for your children you’re not a hero I promised myself no shame a lacklustre being I kept on missing the point oh my eyes stare in to the sky as i decide to walk away For god’s sake pull yourself together, you see because now it is now or never you messed up, you fucked up it goes to show that brothers are here forever And if i can’t find a way to contain myself I'll bleed my heart out, just bleed my heart out and if i never find a way, away from feeling cold without a doubt, screaming my god damn lungs out I will scream my god damn lungs out this is the way it’s meant to be Feeding you all the thoughts inside my head, but they were all wrong remember the last things that I said? a lack of control Do you feel no shame? I wanted to find a way to the end I wanted to pull myself from the sand and everything comes together and our dreams will meld to form a new horizon believe me when i say I regret all the past, the years that I wasted regret all the lives I tore apart in the name of love how could I be so cold? My mind was clouded by your imperfect dream Do you feel no shame? Imperfection

Also featured is 2 teasers of what is to come from the new album this coming year.

Press Quote:

"Juddering tech metal blends in with the kind of soaring melodies built for arenas to create a sound that is both wall-shakingly heavy and infectiously melodic. Nailing both ends of the metal spectrum, Subversion do serious damage when they get heavy but manage to still get you reaching for the lighter as they reel it in a bit" - Planet-Loud.com


released December 23, 2013

*Featuring lead vocals from Karl Harrigan.

Subversion London, UK

Utilising hard hitting frontmanship from Jay Shields, Kai’s soaring hook filled clean vocals, guitar riffs that sway from heavy groove to epic melody, and the laser tight percussion of Ben Atkinson; Subversion like to dabble in the arts of odd time signatures spliced with huge thought inducing soundscapes. ... more
