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

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

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

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

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

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.
