lyrics

Misshape of truth and warped notions
Fed day by day infections
Blinded by the lies of dismay
To fight a chokehold of power

Face in your filth
Blood on your fingertips
(You crawl on hands and knees)
While the mistakes
Of the world will drag you down
(On leashes for the world to see)

You’ll never understand why I scream
You tried to break this curse
It’s only getting worse
You’ll never understand what I’ve done
To take what’s left
It’s all in my hands

I see them turn and look away
There’s no escape from this mistake
You’re nothing more than dead men walking
I see them reaching to the sky
Trapped in the world I left behind
What’s left but a city in ruins

No one feels the pain
Of the blood that fills my lungs
(This is your funeral)
Breathe lies of hate
Among those you’re condemned for
(This is your funeral)


You’ll never understand why I scream
You tried to break this curse
It’s only getting worse
You’ll never understand what I’ve done
To take what’s left
It’s all in my hands

I see them turn and look away
There’s no escape from this mistake
You’re nothing more than dead men walking
I see them reaching to the sky
Trapped in the world I left behind
What’s left but a city in ruins

Trapped in the world I left behind
What’s left but a city in ruins

Misshape of truth and warped notions
Fed day by day infections
Blinded by the lies of dismay
To fight a chokehold of power

I see them turn and look away
There’s no escape from this mistake
You’re nothing more than dead men walking
I see them reaching to the sky
Trapped in the world I left behind
What’s left but a city in ruins

about

Ready For The Fall Sydney, Australia

Ready For The Fall is a four piece Sydney based post-hardcore band. Through blending the strongest elements of their musical roots such as 90s pop punk and metal with recent hardcore influences, the resulting cocktail was a melodic mixture of dual guitar riffage, punk anthem choruses, violent breakdowns and bloodcurdling screams.
