about

The debut single from Melbourne 5-piece, The Motion Below.

lyrics

Look back at all the years spent unchanged,
Take a step back and see that they are the same.
If I could only find the chance to say that you are not okay.
Look back at all the years spent unchanged,
Take a step back and see that we are the same.
If I could only find the time to say that your soul's turning gray.

Recklessly inflicting sickening sentiments on all your peers.
The consequences you can't see are the hands that shape your reality.

Look back at all the years spent unchanged,
Can't help thinking we're the cause of the pain.
Always searching for another man to blame.
Spent years misplacing fame.
And I can't find the strength to tell you wrong,
But you were the problem all along.
I'll mount a mirror on my megaphone to see the face of hypocrisy.

Save your regrets for all the rest,
Because endless rest is an endless test.
Don’t shut me out, I’m not your enemy,
So hear me out, ‘cos we’re here to stay.

We'll help you all we can, but we won't stand by your side.
Cause when the flames burn bright it's such an awful sight.
A calling for a guiding light.
And when you shout out for aide, make sure you tighten your noose,
Before you claim innocence.

I gave my all to be an anchor in this storm,
But years of bitter conflict have turned my heart to rust,

There's something missing from you, something taken.
It's evident from all the friends you've forsaken.
Another outlet for your boundless frustration,
The anger rises, you can't resist temptation.

Save your regrets for all the rest,
Because endless rest is an endless test.
Don’t shut me out, I’m not your enemy,
So hear me out, ‘cos we’re here to stay.
No-one bares the spirit truer than a voluntary loss of will.
But a spirit bared is a burden shared, and the spirits shared have pardoned none.
Hated by everyone, fortitude shunned.
