about

Single from my upcoming album "Volume II: Impressions of Another Life", coming this summer. The story comes from the light novel series "The Empty Box and Zeroth Maria", Volume 2.

lyrics

[Verse 1]
Dearest greetings
To my brother, allied with me
He'll speak my ideals
And enforce the outcomes I seek

All your friendships
Nothing more than fodder

In the trenches
You cling to a taken vessel
Your moves, branches
Which we'll cut until there's one left

Raise your white flag
Or prepare to end this

[Prechorus]
Either with your shield or on it

[Chorus]
When I wear you down
You'll relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)
Relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)

Deny all you want
You're erasing yourself (erasing yourself)
Erasing yourself
And I'll take what is left

[Verse 2]
I'm calling on the demons
Who drove us into madness
And created these corpses
To fuel these cruel convictions

[Prechorus]
Either with our shields or on it
Either follow or feel our wrath

[Chorus]
When I wear you down
You'll relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)
Relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)

Deny all you want
You're erasing yourself (erasing yourself)
Erasing yourself
And I'll take what is left

[Bridge]
Treachery
Between her and he
Blurs the seams
That connect him and me

Conspiring to forge betrayal
The ally finds another way
Threaten someone close, and watch him
Beg to obey

Prove to my brother and me
That ceding your identity
Will change you fundamentally
Just like my wish did

Another hour that you waste
Another hostage I can take
Follow to the letter, or
Their blood is on your hands

[Chorus]
When I wear you down
You'll relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)
Relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)

Deny all you want
You're erasing yourself (erasing yourself)
Erasing yourself (Erasing yourself)

When I wear you down
You'll relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)
Relinquish yourself (relinquish yourself)

Deny all you want
You're erasing yourself (erasing yourself)
Erasing yourself
And I'll take what is left
