All these years have been riveting I'm barely staying sane All these fears left me shivering And no one takes the blame Rewind To the last time you were broken To the last time no one cared And relive what you've awoken They'll never see you scared Fingers twitch try to keep them still It only makes it worse Scratch the itch with another pill You'll never know what hurts Rewind To the last time you were broken To the last time no one cared And relive what you've awoken They'll never see you scared Something tells you This is not the way it's supposed to be Will you be the change Or let it change you? Take a stand You can end this And I will Be the first to let you know Rewind To the last time you were broken To the last time no one cared And relive what you've awoken They'll never see you scared

It took time To discover being left behind was fine Now I’m mine And I’m coming to my senses Reach out Fall down Crawl on Fight! And so the stars align tonight Ready for our fight And all we stand for Won’t be hidden out of sight Close your eyes And imagine being free from your disguise They despise That we’re not what they have made us Hear us See us Fear us Fight! And so the stars align tonight Ready for our fight And all we stand for Won’t be hidden out of sight Say goodbye to the sleepless nights Say goodbye to your fear of heights Say goodbye to your wish to die Say goodbye to the tears they made you cry And so the stars align tonight Ready for our fight And all we stand for Won’t be hidden out of sight If you thought it was over now Know we’ve just begun And I swear that we won’t bow down Stand and fight!

Watch spring flowers fade All decayed I breathe in colours Watch me as I lay All in grey But breathing colours Something gone you’ll have to find Everyone got left behind Take your lids and pull them back Find the colours that you lack Don’t let me go Don’t leave me be Here in this godforsaken world we made Woven together with fear and hate Break all these empty walls we’re trapped behind If we won’t see, we will die Doubt haunting your face But with grace You breathe in colours Dig deeper or flee Will you see Their true colours? Here in this godforsaken world we made Woven together with fear and hate Break all these empty walls we’re trapped behind If we won’t see, we will die Something gone you’ll have to find Everyone got left behind Take your lids and pull them back Find the colours that you lack Don’t let me know Let me believe Here in this godforsaken world we made Woven together with fear and hate Break all these empty walls we’re trapped behind If we won’t see, we will die

Though sadness lies behind our eyes At times we let it go But never let it show Will this sacrifice be my demise? And will you ever know How the world has lost its glow? Though the pain had gone I’m leading it on tonight Tempting it with pieces of my past When we're frail, we run Before they can shine a light How much longer will this winter last? Is it gone if I just smile? Is it gone if I forget it for a while? I say I'm fine, too much is on the line It's only gone if i let it go Sometimes our dreams aren't what they seem They come in shades of grey How dark is hard to say One day you'll look up and see the clock That ticks your life away And take on another day I catch myself repeating another smile Only ever meant for fake displays And I try to tell That it'll be worth my while Worth the tracks repeating on face Is it gone if I just smile? Is it gone if I forget it for a while? I say I'm fine, too much is on the line It's only gone if i let it go Is it gone if I don't cry? Is it gone if I forgive? Is it gone if I just smile? Is it gone if I forget it for a while? I say I'm fine, too much is on the line It's only gone if i let it go

Something strange, unexplained Sent shivers down my spine Nothing changed, they remained Uncared for by you with your cold, dead hands Not that I thought you would understand But you will remember how I can survive I breathe in I can't speak But my mind is screaming why I won't cry Just leave me I can't sleep But I'm alive Demons grow when you show Affection for their kind I pulled through all while you Just stood there and watched as my world burned down I'll rise from the ash when you're not around And you will remember how I can survive I breathe in I can't speak But my mind is screaming why I won't cry Just leave me I can't sleep But I'm alive You break You take You make Everything I thought was kind so fake You're nothing but a snake A great mistake Pretend you never met me (now) You break You take You make Everything I thought was kind so fake You're nothing but a snake A great mistake Remember to forget me I can survive I breathe in I can't speak But my mind is screaming why I won't cry Just lead me to my own demise I've been down these roads before Now I'll own my flaws without my disguise Every shut and closing door Made me want it more And I can survive

Lips are sealed I’ll keep them shut To keep you satisfied Bittersweet Not bringing up What’s really on my mind Give me wings, shoot me down Catch me as I hit the ground Do your worst to shut me up That won’t make it stop Set me free Your eerie screams Keep ringing in my head You don’t see What you give me Is really all you get Give me wings, shoot me down Catch me as I hit the ground Do your worst to shut me up That won’t make it stop Everything is fair in love and war You will learn I learned… I don’t need your acceptance Your permission You just fed the monster When did the truth get so conflicting? Don’t forget that you can’t Give me wings, shoot me down Catch me as I hit the ground Do your worst to shut me up That won’t make it stop

Break me and say it's for the best Take a piece and cover up the rest Fine I won't cry All that was sacred has been left here to die And I sigh “I'm all right” When I'm falling to pieces But they're pieces of me you won't see What if a vital piece is lost? Buried and hidden well by dust Fine I won't cry All that was sacred has been left here to die And I sigh “I'm all right” When I'm falling to pieces Pieces you won't see I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself I can't save myself from me Fine I won't cry All that was sacred has been left here to die And I sigh “I'm all right” When I'm falling to pieces But they're pieces of me you won't see

Cry for the hopeless For the times they have burned The hard way they've learned and Pray for the soulless For the scars they have earned Now they've nowhere to call home I won't be an empty heart I'm the one who tears apart I'm the wretched I'm the broken I'm the storm you can't control I'm the saviour I'm the tide and I am Rising over you Soot-covered windows Where the glass is stained grey Come, wipe it away Step out join the living There's a life here to find Outside of your mind, let go You don't need lungs to be loud Take it in and scream it out: I'm the wretched I'm the broken I'm the storm you can't control I'm the saviour I'm the tide and I am Rising over you I'll pull on the thread that unravels all lies I'll tear off the blinds that have covered your eyes I'm not all you want but I'm all that you'll get This girl who turned woman means war I'm the wretched I'm the broken I'm the storm you can't control I'm the saviour I'm the tide and I am Rising over you I'm the wretched I'm the broken I'm the storm you can't control I'm the saviour I'm the tide and I am Rising over you

Something’s gone wrong Thoughts of it tear me to pieces I don’t belong Here in the midst of these demons It’s so deep Dark I’m Far from the shore And I can’t swim Can’t get in My heart weighs me down But if I dream now Closing my eyes We could be free now Love would suffice So say your goodbyes I ask myself Is it enough just believing? I never dreamt Love could be cruel and deceiving I can’t stay Relive this day For all of my life But you pull me close And all this goes away I can stay And if I dream now Closing my eyes We could be free now Say your goodbyes Ripping a hole in All the black drapes that Held us tight from the start And I beg don’t let love Tear holes in the pages Of books that we’ve waited To write but then We’re rewriting them Every page that we turn Is a lesson we’ve learned We’re not giving in And if I dream now Closing my eyes We could be free now Say your goodbyes Ripping a hole in All the black drapes that Held us tight from the start And I beg don’t let love

So I’m left with this voice in my head Violently screaming my name And I need to remind me you said Only you can destroy it I’ll cover your eyes Silence your cries When everything is overwhelming Have faith Your debt is paid It’s not too late Don’t hold your breath Embrace the tide Thoughts I never invited stay Intrusive, abusive, I’m losing it God, let me throw them away But they won’t let me go I’ll cover your eyes Silence your cries When everything is overwhelming Have faith Your debt is paid It’s not too late Don’t hold your breath Embrace the tide You will find a speck of light one day Though affliction leaves a mark Take my hand and we’ll be on our way home I will lead you through the dark I’ll cover your eyes Silence your cries When everything is overwhelming Have faith Your debt is paid It’s not too late Don’t hold your breath Don’t hold it Have faith Have faith Have faith Embrace the tide

Just a perfect day Drink Sangria in the park And then later, when it gets dark We go home Just a perfect day Feed animals in the zoo Then later, a movie too And then home Oh it's such a perfect day I'm glad I spent it with you Oh such a perfect day You just keep me hanging on You just keep me hanging on Just a perfect day Problems all left alone Weekenders on our own It's such fun Just a perfect day You made me forget myself I thought I was someone else Someone good Oh it's such a perfect day I'm glad I spent it with you Oh such a perfect day You just keep me hanging on You just keep me hanging on You're going to reap just what you sow You're going to reap just what you sow You're going to reap just what you sow You're going to reap just what you sow

about

Megacorporations owning our governments, the world on the verge of ecological collapse and humanity fleeing into cyberspace to escape the horrors of the real world – is this 2019?

When Philip K. Dick wrote what would later become Blade Runner, no one would have believed that the dystopian cyberpunk future he imagined 2019 to be, would be so similar to the world we live in today…

This realisation is what sparked the idea for the new album from FOREVER STILL – »Breathe In Colours«.
With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn’t want to produce a carbon copy of its predecessor »Tied Down«, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments like on the captivating opener ‘Rewind’ or ‘Embrace The Tide’, while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date on the groovy ‘Survive’ or their emotional declaration of war, ‘Fight’.
