about

"Trenches" is The Broken Are Crowned's follow up release to debut full length "To Those Who Stand Alone." This twenty five minute EP was written and recorded with the sole intent to take what the band already had and progress/expand as much as possible. The result were these five tracks. While each song differs from the last in many ways, it was all written as one during the beginning-middle months of 2013 and recorded over 48 collective hours in July, making a return to Roosevelt Recordings with Jack once again. The members of TBAC are all truly proud of this EP, and hope all others enjoy this as well.

Track Name: Descent
This is all just a dream and it is dead
Track Name: What Lies Beneath
This is all just a dream and it is dead
My life is just a blur
I gave it all to this
I have all control and have become the substance

It’s got me starving for it bringing me to knees
Grasping every thoughts i have beginning with my dreams
I never thought I could end up like this feeding for my next fix

These demons inside me have got me chained down to a leash

I’ve been struggling for so long
To regain what i have lost
To escape this trench
No matter what the cost

This is a vicious cycle
It feels like its been a million years
Abandoned, alone
Not feeling much but the bitter cold

Still broken, still hollow
Only having one thing left to follow
So hopeless, I'm swallowed
By a life i no longer care for

Now that this demon in me
Has consumed everything
A shadow of evil oversees me
Guiding me down this wicked path

Life feels empty
I feel done
All i have left is left to come
Nothing matters anymore
So rip my beating heart out

(This addiction has held me captive)
(And i swore i would never leave)

Reality is dead

I’m done now
Reality is dead
This cycle
Needs to be broken

The time had come for me to decide
Between the substance inside and the rest of my life
What lies beneath has over shadowed
Everything that i could have become
What lies beneath has removed all hope
What lies beneath has drug me down
What lies beneath is death
Track Name: The Lost Ones
We have seen the face of death
And stood on the brink of hell
We are the lost ones
Searching for the light
We’re at war within ourselves
And we’ll fight until we're dead
We are the lost cause
Living night by night

A life lived for love is never a life wasted
So take my hand
You know as well as i do
That we are worth so much more than slits on our wrists
So breathe and keep the blade away from your skin

Never give in
We have fought for so long
We have been threw so much worse
What could
Be so bad as to make you quit now?

But can't you see were so much more than bodies meant to live in pain
We’re still finding meaning
In the darkness of this world

Stand up and grasp what's been before you all along
Stand up and live as though you’ll never die
So that one day you may truly say
That you were alive

Stand up
Track Name: Deceiver
All i see is myself in all of this
Confined, and driven to the point of insanity
These walls, they speak, repeating what was told to me
As a parallel world is waved in front of me

Betrayed, dismayed
Bleeding and left to die
I am stranded in a sea of these lies
There is nothing that will truly mend these wounds and i am waiting to be woken up or broken down even more
I am looking for a meaning in all of this

This is a prison of mirrors
Where no one can escape
All there is to be seen is oneself withering away
The epiphany of becoming a victim
But we’re left alone until we are convinced that we are the enemy

The cycle of life is forgotten
To be left with our hallucinations
So many reasons to believe that this will never end
Looking for a sign to show me suffering is not meaningless

(You are never alone)
(You are all alone)
(Breathe, the end of this is near)
(Breathe, this will never end)

Breathe

Take a breath of the life you were given
Examine yourself and escape from this nightmare
I am still looking for a meaning, a reason, a sign
Something more
Track Name: Semblance
Your thoughts are full of twisted lies
Your heart is full of hate
Who you are is completely fake
I wish that the past could be erased

You may think that you have done nothing
But you have yet to see my wrath
I push the thoughts of you away
Because pretending is all i have

I'll burn down everything we had
No looking back, no regrets
You say we aren't meant to be
But in my mind thats all i could see

You may not know it yet but you can't do this on your own
You placed me hopes higher than I could reach
High hopes mean nothing when all I got in return was disappointment

How could you live with knowing what you did
All this hate it drives me to the point of insanity
You preach at me with words of kindness
Covering up the scars you placed in my heart

The surroundings you placed at the bottom of my feet
Are now my source to find myself again

I found no trust in you
I’ve lost all respect
Nothing can change you brought this on yourself
Don't turn back and ask for a new start
My waiting meant nothing to you and you mean nothing to me

Constant tug of war in my head
Neither side is winning, just losing to myself
This battle started off as you versus me
But now its only me who fights these wars

Glory betrays my side
