This track came about in a very untraditional band manner. Marc had lyrics and a basic idea for drums and bass which he presented to the rest of the guys, stating that even though birds is not an active band, he still wanted to create under the name when applicable.

The song was built from a drum loop and scratch vocals which turned into each member coming to the studio at separate times to add their spice and contribution to the creation and expansion of the song.

Over the course of a few months this song took many shapes and forms to land where it is now. We hope you enjoy!


The scent of the still lit cigarette reminds me of why I want to forget and this night is one more reason why.
The night air chills my bones as I begin to fade.
More stones on my shoulders and I can feel the weight.
So here I am alone but not forgotten.
Just a victim of my own demise; Dead, decayed and rotten.

How long can we go on these broken hopes before choking on the stench of the rising smoke?
I refuse to burn that bridge that held us together
I defy the gravity that holds us down.
