There’s no room left to breathe It’s so bad I can’t even see So bad it seems So bad it bleeds So glad I’m driven away How many weeks left to hate? What is there left here to break? What does it mean? What does it see? My time is slipping away We’re living life in the rain Well it drives me insane Will my life be the same? Oh time please take me away Oh time please take me away Well it burns me out, it burns me out Well I’m dead throughout, I’m breaking out Let’s have a new start today Someone please help me escape Someone be brave Someone be saved Someone will die here today I’ve had no fear to create So much to communicate So much for friends So much for them So much I’m driven away That’s it enough It makes me laugh To think of you Pushed to the edge A spider’s web That traps us all You think we’re fools I’m wiser now The depths hell I’ve made the change I saved myself It’s clearer now You abused trust You tainted us We all were used You’re not excused A division, a decision Submission
Hunter gatherer and skip-trace through the day What’s the contract, what’s the pay? There’s no evidence, and no-one left to blame What’s your question, what’s your name? They can’t find you I will hunt you down They can’t see you I will bring you down Trawling trodden ground, and live life in red tape You can’t be trusted, and can’t escape Well, you can’t be reasoned with, give answers, no delay Run your display, and run away Your passing through In time, I’ll move Life’s amputee In truth, you mean nothing more to me
We are nothing at all We are just dead embers Flying in and out of the walls Into your empty souls We have seen it all We’ve been here one thousand years laying down our laws It overtakes me Well it turns you on That I am nothing more Than what you make me We are free and young Though we lost more than won I can’t be addicted to the time I waste on you There’s too much hurt to be undone We are nothing at all We are just dead embers Flying over darkened sprawls Into an empty hole We, we just want it all You can’t see or understand That until you’re down from the upper hand You can’t change me
Suffocate your final thoughts Running away though corridors I'm heading back without a firefight Out on a limb, I will not crawl Trapped in this room now with hindsight The walls are thin they cannot not fall Your eyes dilate, you’re insecure I cannot relate to you no more We’re reaching up out of the divide Where have we been, I can’t recall Our lives have turned into a landslide. I cannot win, you'll take it all This is my resurrection; I’ve been waiting for so long This is my resurrection; I’ve been waiting for so long Crying out, crying out For salvation Crying out, crying out I’m not the last one Suffocate your final words A heavy weight you can’t reverse
I see you’re rushing, you’re under strain Oh I wanted nothing, to ease your pain It’s not the same It’ll never change It’s not the same I’ll run away I’ll run away I see you’re suffering, you’re raising doubt No point in trying, till we burn out I wanted something more than you’d ever give You’re only sticking around to see what you can get Too many problems still remain, I’ve got fear within my veins
Take a trip into the heart of it, Walk amongst the enraged crowd, Well I tried, but then, I gave up, Oh I tried, but then, I gave up Red light, egos, Flatline, psychos In this town I wanna hear you say, There’s blood on the motorway, Braindead, freakshows, Wasted, zeros, This town ain’t ever gonna find its way. Just how long till you destroy yourself, Watch this place come crumbling down, It will always be the same, No it won’t ever change. It will not change
When your heart stops beating Oh I’m gonna watch you drown When your heart stops beating Oh you’ll never make a sound When my heart stops beating I’ll run through the way I fell When my heart stops beating No-one will ever tell It’s the only way I know With one way left to go Oh what are we seeking? Will no-one ever help us through? And while we’re still living You’ll find nothing is ever true Well now my hearts stopped beating No-one can hear me shout Well now my heart's stopped beating I’m on my way out It’s the only way I know With one way left to go I’m calling out, I’m calling out to you Please help me out I will not make it through Ignore what the signs meant It’s all within my head Go back retrace your steps Prepare yourself for death
Second chances to drag it out Second changes to live without It will just fail A blinded victim of selfish doubt You’re running desperate across the town Well I know it’s lies in The Sickness In Your Eyes Why am I surprised? By The Sickness In Your Eyes Why has it Surprised us apart Now we have to leave and cover it with lies Second chances to interact Second chances to bring it back Stuck in this trap A poison number that can’t be count Well I’m so glad now that I got out Well I can hear the cries in
You know I’m never coming back What’s done is done and that is that It sucked me in and got me trapped Oh you hit the switch I saw the cracks And overtook the inside track You’ve got no option but to attack, and attack Fighting in a fit of rage We haven’t been outside for days It’s gone and set this town ablaze Hiding behind a smokescreen Fucking like you are machines Destroy it now by all means We drown it out, pretend it don’t exist We drown it out If you open up you’ll find We’ve reached the end of the line Hold on to it, and then drown it out What were you expecting to find? Get outta here we ain’t got the time It’s taken grip it’s out of control Eating through your wretched soul How long you’ve got I just do not know Trapped with insecurities Suffocating like a disease It’s got you down to your knees If you find you’re trapped again You need to get out, but you can’t You’ve almost reached the bitter end When all that you get is never what you want
It takes a life to drag it out It’s so different now I took my time to find myself It’s so different now No you won’t be blamed No I won’t feel shame It’s unnatural No you won’t believe No I won’t deceive It’s unnatural I thought I knew things inside out It’s so different now It’s not your fault you tell yourself It’s so different now And I won’t descend And you won’t depend on It’s unnatural And I cannot trust And you cannot be lost It’s unnatural Keep holding on Biting on your tongue I won’t be here long I will not respond You fought but now the lights gone out It’s so different now I light a match to burn myself It’s so different now Yes I’m not afraid Yes you can’t explain It’s unnatural Yes you will compete Yes I feel defeat It’s unnatural Keep holding on Biting to your tongue I won’t be here long I will not respond Keep holding on To where it all begun I won’t be here long You've been lying all along Keep holding on Biting to your tongue I won’t be here long Dead forever long

Broken Links Eastleigh, UK

Diving into the lyrical and musical depths of free association, taking you on an emotional rollercoaster of despair to complete arousal. Influenced by the under-currents of post-punk and New Wave, and then boxing it up into an old stone box made of pure hard industrial pop space rock and sin. A band you simply cannot ignore. ... more
