A single to our upcoming debut, Panda Eyes is the introduction to the album's concept surrounding self-deconstruction. The lyrics pertain to two characters within an individual, at conflict about ambition and the self-mutilation that follows when dreams and aspirations are not reached.


We're all lost

Broken one
How your name's been laying on the tip of my tongue
In the dark of my mind
On your back like carrion
Waiting for the vultures
And the morn to calm
With the heart and the harm

Dressed in doubt
Leave naked in the mind

My hands on your everdead dreams
Watch your eyes dance at the strings that pull you under.

And in the end
We're all lost

Bring the light
Sweet blindness, I won't let you down
Standing in their glances living like a coward
I know that there is an end
And even with your heart I beg
Just let me know that I can find
A siren call for bitter ends

Let it ring
Stare you down
Screams as whispers
Dead in love
A silent rain

I know that there is an end
But I will stay in better days
Bury me under
Forget my name
Remember what it's like to want
Your everdead dreams
Let love keep you safe
Stay low in the end
In the wounds we leave
I am alive
But dead in your eyes
