Against the Waves' new song from the upcoming album "Borealis" produced by Joey Sturgis.


I've seen brighter days

In times like these
A warning comes as it may
I, deceiver
Disrupt the sleep of the sovereign
I, betrayer
Singing an ode to the long-lost forgotten
Open the gates to the damned
Mediocrity overflowing
A flood of stagnant routine

Course-corrected by the clutches of time
I'm an island
Being unique is not a disease
I'm an island

Did I go too far?
A plea for an average existence
Defined by the foretold
It's just a wake up call
I only bow down to ideals that keep me hanging on

I'm done wasting my time
I won't delete and rewind
I embrace the gallows you assigned

This is the legacy of a broken man
The merits of someone who never had
Something good enough to write home about

My dearest friend
No one likes a discorageous war
In our home away from home

Did you honestly believe
That I would just walk away?
You know uncertainty is what makes me feel alive
