about

Forming in late 2013, Defences found their unique style combining the melodic sound of Electronic and Orchestral styles with the aggressive bite of Metal. The band got to work creating their best, most hard-hitting music to date, released in the form of their debut EP, Stitches In Sanity

Track Name: Defences
Please be patient with me, I swear, I’ll let you inside
Despite my worries of what you’ll find
I built these defences strong, invincible for so long
I feel them weakening, and it scares me

Trying to ignore all the signs, that I’m in too deep
Will you be the one to save me?

This is not an unfamiliar force but
It hit me harder than ever before and
All I want is to take care of you
Promise that you’ll take care of me too
‘Cause I can’t pick up the pieces again

There’s no secrets I’ll hide from you, no stone left unturned
But it’s no secret that the words get caught in my throat
Over and over again, I hear them
Screaming “don’t do this again”, these voices

Trying to ignore all the signs, that I’m in too deep
Will you be the one to save me?

This is not an unfamiliar force but
It hit me harder than ever before and
All I want is to take care of you
Promise that you’ll take care of me too
‘Cause I can’t pick up the pieces again

The pieces of my heart, without falling apart
I swear I’ll let you in, I swear I’ll let you in
Pick up the pieces again, I swear I’ll let you in
Go! Fuck! I swear I’ll let you in

Give me time to figure it out
I’m breaking down my defences
Give me time to figure it out
I’m breaking down my defences

This is not an unfamiliar force but
It hit me harder than ever before

This is not an unfamiliar force but
It hit me harder than ever before and
All I want is to take care of you
Promise that you’ll take care of me too
Get the fuck up!
Track Name: The Oblivious
I see these faces of strangers surrounding me
Weary hearts and idle minds
I’ve wasted time trying to find the light behind their eyes
But they forgot their dreams (the indifferent will only achieve)
And they don’t aspire to anything (a life of apathy)

I don’t wanna live like the rest of them
No one should settle for second best
Even when it feels like it’s hopeless with no way out
All the walls are getting closer and I start to doubt it all
I’ll give it everything I’ve got, every part of me
To make the most of the life I lead

So many places outside the one you call home
Places you’ll never know
And I’d waste my time trying to show you the world through my eyes
When you’ve lost everything (ambition replaced by despair)
I won’t let it happen to me (content though you’re going nowhere)

I don’t wanna live like the rest of them
No one should settle for second best
Even when it feels like it’s hopeless with no way out
All the walls are getting closer and I start to doubt it all
I’ll give it all that I have, all of the air I breathe
To make the most of the life I lead

You can keep your ignorance
But for me there will always be more to this

You can keep it, with your back to the world
Remain oblivious, you can keep it all
No initiative, no intention to grow
Stay oblivious, and fucking keep it

I don’t wanna live like the rest of them
No one should settle for second best
Even when it feels like it’s hopeless with no way out
All the walls are getting closer and I start to doubt it all
I’ll give it everything I’ve got, every part of me
To make the most of the life I lead
Track Name: Scared
Someone tell me please, are we supposed to live this way?
Unwilling and afraid
To seek these cherished treasures
They’d set us free, oh so easily

It lives in us all, entwined in the threads of our veins
The fear, the confusion, the pain
Provoking us to give up, until all hope is destroyed
But this isn’t the end, we all have a choice

Our defining moments are when we decide
To cower or jump and pray for flight
Fingertips weaving through sunset skies
Are you feeling scared or are you just feeling alive?

We get caught in a never-ending cycle of doubt
It’ll pull you in and push you back out
Is there a way for us to move on?
How can we learn to overcome

These obstacles in our minds
Preventing eager hearts from feeling alive
We live for the spark but fear the flames
Caution triumphs and instead the matches get thrown away

Our defining moments are when we decide
To cower or jump and pray for flight
Fingertips weaving through sunset skies
Are you feeling scared or are you just feeling alive?

Are you feeling scared or are you feeling alive?

I won’t let the fear back in, I will feel alive again

Our defining moments are when we decide
To cower or jump and pray for flight
Fingertips weaving through sunset skies
Are you feeling scared or are you just feeling alive?
Track Name: Beneath The Surface
I can’t stop this
But I will always have a choice
You never witnessed it
The very sound of your voice
Time to rebuild and start again
But I will always have white noise to save me
When nothing is changing

Break! Through!
But this ain’t nothing new
Stop! Me!
Or I’ll end up like you
You say you’ll stay beneath the surface where you can’t dictate me
Am I going crazy?

Am I an illness?
Or just a box you gotta tick?
Reality exists
In more ways than you will admit
You’ll never see this face again
But I will always have your arms to save me
I know you’ll be waiting

Break! Through!
But this ain’t nothing new
Stop! Me!
Or I’ll end up like you
You say you’ll stay beneath the surface where you can’t dictate me
Am I going crazy?

And I fear, for my life!
Am I losing, losing my mind?
Cut you out, thought I’d won
But this war, has just begun

Break! Through!
But this ain’t nothing new
Stop! Me!
Or I’ll end up like you
You say you’ll stay beneath the surface where you can’t dictate me
Am I going crazy?

Break! Through!
But this ain’t nothing new
Stop! Me!
Or I’ll end up like you
You say you’ll stay beneath the surface where you can’t dictate me
Am I going crazy?
Track Name: ∆LLEVI∆TE
Help me, I am submerged in the ocean's abyss
I gasp for breath as my lungs are filled
Crashing waves into my chest
They’re drowning me out, they’re drowning me out

Did I pull you under?
Or did I push you down?
To the place where the stricken dwell

I can't alleviate this feeling, don't know what to believe in
Don't tell me I'll be fine when there's no hidden meaning
Written in between the lines

Help me, I can’t see and I’m struggling
Blind in my efforts to get underneath
The armour you wear, didn’t have that before
You hide away now that I need you more

Give me a reason to see past the guise
Is there really more than meets the eye?

I can't alleviate this feeling, don't know what to believe in
Don't tell me I'll be fine when there's no hidden meaning
Written in between the lines

We got lost in the stars
The weightlessness pulled us apart
Back to the solitary corners of our mind
Where we used to live

We got lost in the stars
The weightlessness pulled us apart
Back to the solitary corners of our mind
Where we used to live

I can't alleviate this feeling, and what do I believe in?
When there's no hidden meaning, written in between the lines

I can't alleviate this feeling, don't know what to believe in
Don't tell me I'll be fine when there's no hidden meaning
Written in between the lines
