I struggle to draw breath
When we are so restricted

This track is extremely powerful, both lyrically and sonically. By far my favorite from Grievances. Interpretation is up to you on this one - there are some pretty heavy lines in there.

Sonically, my favorite parts are ~2:10 during Eva’s clean section and then again ~3:20 – 3:50.


At war within to suppress everything
The more you struggle the deeper you sink
Thoughts form in constellations
Now emerge composed

Nothing is sacred
Electrified by hatred
Nothing is sacred
These threats accumulate
Nothing is sacred
Purified by hatred

Lose and lack control
You’ll find you only ever reap what you sow

Ward off the brightest stars
They are primed with tragedy
Get a handle on this harmony
Get a handle on this harmony

Faith is ill advised
Relapse is a choice
Get a handle on this harmony
Get a handle on this harmony

I am eclipsed
It’s so bittersweet
I am eclipsed
It’s so bittersweet

I struggle to draw breath
When we are so restricted
Observe these passing waves
Forgive the missing pieces

I struggle to draw breath when we are so restricted
Finding imbalance now that the weight has shifted
And with all my being I know that I don’t need this
To hear to be in need, is some kind of weakness

I observe spirited loyalty
And wonder why this does not apply to me
Bitterness has bathed me
I feel destruction overwhelm me

For we’re the loss
Follow our slowing pulse
Practice makes permanent
For we’re the loss
Follow our slowing pulse
I am eclipsed
It’s so bittersweet

Bitterness has bathed me
I feel destruction overwhelm me
I am eclipsed
It’s so bittersweet
