lyrics

I know we’ll regret this war of words
A siren overhead getting louder, getting louder, getting louder
Shot me a glance, a knowing smile,
Like you were deep in my brain

I took the damaged pieces of your broken heart
I fixed you up, but now I’m crawling

And my resistance meant nothing to you
‘Cause you said the word and I was under

You gave me few reasons to endure
And I felt the grind of my sympathy corroding with my anger
We knew the score, but I had no time,
For you to reap the rewards of your game

You fell on the floor with a dying breath; your final act
I picked you up, but now I’m stalling

And my resistance meant nothing to you,
‘Cause you said the word and I was under
Standing ovations meant nothing to you,
‘Cause you think the worst no matter what I do

In the likely event of a confrontation…
To avoid a scene I might have to play dead again
Play dead again

If this was real don’t you think that I’d react?
But I fight a battle with your lines
And I would improvise my script for the last time
As an unidentified reaction teases my skin,
I look up to face you knowing the opposition
I’m no longer battle ready I rest my case
I’m no longer battle ready I rest my case
I rest my case

about

The Mariana Hollow London, UK

We're a five-piece female-fronted alternative metal band from London, UK.

We write dark music with twin guitar lines, pounding rhythms and haunting melodies - songs that'll sink their claws in deeper with every listen.

There's a free EP here on BandCamp, and two other albums on all the major digital stores if you like what you're hearing.

It's good stuff, honest!
