about

Taken from Umbrella Burning Festival's first EP “Poems in braille”, available now for free download and streaming.

lyrics

I've sterilised
everything for fear
of toxic scums
as you went away from me.
I've looked behind
'cause memories are where
I used to hide.
The mind is a shelter.

You've broken vows
'cause you knew they're trash
when every word is
stained with sham.

I've read between the lines
of poems in braille
then scratched my eyeballs out
just to try
and understand despair
is like suicide.
The body is a hindrance.

You've turned a blind eye
to your useless lives
now tell me who's
really wandering in the dark.
As everything falls apart.

You've broken vows
'cause you knew they're trash
when every word is
stained with sham.

I've crucified my youth
with nails of glass
and still I crave to
break the needle
of my compass.
It doesn't matter where
as long as it's not here.

I've turned a blind eye
to my useless life
'cause in the end
we're all wandering in the dark.
As everything falls apart.
