about

Watching It Burn is the 2016 debut EP from Siegebreaker following up their single release of Cold Black Eye in 2015. The tracks will take the listener on a journey of varying sounds, and content that will strike thought and emotion.

As a band, we are very proud of not just the songs, but also of the process we used for this recording as well; we sought to bring it back to the roots: The drums were captured using a live acoustic drum kit, not programmed in digitally. There was no backing click tracks or maps used to arrange the songs, time/tempo changes have all been done by pure feeling to keep as much life in the final product as possible. It was a harder route to take, but we think it was worthwhile and we hope listeners will enjoy the more natural feeling we have aimed to achieve.

Thank you to: our friends and families for putting up with our crap and insanity and to all of our fans for supporting our music.

Track Name: To The Victim The Spoils
You dwell in, empty negative
Preying on, weakness and denial
Deception, diseased and so vile

Searching for, weakness to reveal
Controlling, dictate and deceive
Human waste, lying at your feet

And it crashes beneath you
From the ground you've soiled
Still feeding the facade
To the victim the spoils

Take advantage all the time
Those broken bridges left behind
The truth inside we'll never find
You are a leech. You are a leech!

Apathy, shallow sympathy
Remorseless, fake tears, synthetic
Depression, victim, pathetic

And it crashes beneath you
From the ground you've soiled
Still feeding the facade
To the victim the spoils
Track Name: Shutdown
Messiah, pariah
Dumbed-down force-fed bullshit
Blindfolded, then molded
Our shackles co-exist

Deflected, rejected
Maintain the status quo
Submissive, dismissive
We’re robbed of what we know

Disgrace, condemn, revise
Control, our thoughts, our lives
Shutdown, shut up, shut out
Shutdown, shut up, shut out

Oppression, suppression
Gag order in effect
Preach silence, breeds violence
Our freedom manifests

Disgrace, condemn, revise
Control, our thoughts, our lives
Shutdown, shut up, shut out
Shutdown, shut up, shut out

Unrecognizing
Desensitizing
Track Name: Bury The Pain
Begging for relief
Searching through the grief
Losing all belief
Swept underneath

Gonna bring me down
Gonna tear me down
Gonna drag me down
Without a sound

Bury all the pain
Nothing ever changed
Have I gone insane?
Am I insane?

I don't know what I may find
When I'm left behind
Tragedy, faded memories
Numb the pain with your disease

You won't set it straight
Punish, isolate
Blurring, devastate
Pawn of the state

I've been misled
I've been misled

Bury the pain
Bury their name
Track Name: Refusal Of Your Code
They chose to
Burn the world
Distance ethics on a screen

They chose to
Sell out time
Fiscal bloodlust reigns supreme

We chose to
Blind our eyes
Slowly killing life decays

We chose to
Shut down truth
Faded morals on display

Refusal of your code
Society corrodes
The blood you've never shed
The facts are all but dead

Blur the line - confuse
Twist the knife - then use
Neutrality is refused

You chose to
Headline fear
Broadcast standards? Pays the same

You chose to
Mute all hope
Condemned voices sold for gain

Refusal of your code
Society corrodes
The blood you've never shed
The facts are all but dead
Track Name: Watch It Burn
Foundation cracked and dying
Built on the backs of man
Buried past comes to surface
Parasite in control
Revolting larceny
Diseased it spread the plague

Land of no hope
Home of decay
Time has run out
Watching it all fade away
Slaves to their greed
Soon out of grasp
Ash, all that's left
Unaware of its collapse

Extinguish truth and reason
Replaced now purified
Sanitized fact to fiction
Wagered your very future
Laid odds on ignorance
Sold out the only option
Watch it all burn

Land of no hope
Home of decay
Time has run out
Watching it all fade away
Slaves to their greed
Soon out of grasp
Ash, all that's left
Unaware of its collapse
