This song is about fear and anxiety.
That Ugly Voice inside your head whispering ugly thoughts and filling your head with ugly ideas. Controlling you with fear.

"I think we all suffer from some level of anxiety, its a part of modern life. But sometimes it can get so loud that it can effect your whole life. I used to suffer really badly from stage fright. I'd obsess about certain points in a song or piece of music and all this negative emotion would be focused on that particular moment. The terror would build up in the time leading up to that moment and I would get more in a panic eventually holding my breath at the moment just before. It would all be a blur and before I knew it, it had passed. Often times without anyone really noticing anything was amiss.." Bertie.


Ankle deep in one inch sleep
These shallow shores my soul do keep
Beyond the wall a Siren's call
No one to hear my silent fall
My edges are curling, turning brown
I woke up dreaming upside down
Fear it came and staked its claim
I held my breath

In that breath I came undone
In that moment I was...
In that breath I came undone
In that moment I was weightless.

Hear that thudding thumping drum
My heart it beats, a bloody gun.
Past regrets Hang crystal clear
Your ugly voice is all I hear
My edges are burning, turning black
Keep on marching, don't look back
Fear it came and left its stain,
I held my breath.
