Ceremony - Presaging The End Lyrics




Oh no
Things have never been worse
I try to change my life
But only end up worse
It's written with a sure hand
But so loath to speak
Another year in its grips
All night and no release
No, no, no, no

Presaging the end
Presaging the end
And then the moon one day over-full
Surrendering
Surrendering
You'll always be more
You'll always be more
You'll always be more alive yesterday
Surrounding me
Surrounding me
Presaging the end
Presaging the end

Beauty
Is to feel
A change in front of you
It comes
It comes
It comes so quickly
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Quicker than it's seen
And it's so
Yeah it's so bittersweet
It's so bittersweet
That you bend
Around it
That you breathe
Into it
You feel adrift without it
Dying without it

Presaging the end
Presaging the end
And then the moon one day over-full
Surrendering
Surrendering
You'll always be more
You'll always be more
You'll always be more alive yesterday
Surrounding me
Surrounding me
Presaging the end
Presaging the end

Beauty
Is to feel
A change in front of you
And it comes
Yeah it comes
It comes so quickly
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves
Then it leaves

Ceremony Presaging The End Comments
  1. Greg Hyde

    To be honest, I prefer the old stuff to this, but this is still pretty good and I know that the band wouldn't be being true to themselves if they were to go on making albums like Violence Violence.

  2. SiberianKissed

    Favorite song off the album for sure, all the close minded comments are just repeating the same shit they commented on Zoo, then again on The L-Shaped man.
    Both are albums I enjoy a lot to this day.
    Don't like it? Too bad. Keep moving.

  3. Primitive In The Extreme

    🎶🌞🌝🎶

  4. Richard Bente

    Please put this in fifa 20!

  5. Brandon Moore

    This is great. Love how they’re ever-evolving.

  6. bottledXviolence

    Who would care about this band if they would limit theirself to the early soundfrom 15 years ago. People like the old stuff because they probably listened to it a thousand times and have difficulties to accept a change. The same psychological effect makes people watch "friends" over and over again. And seriously it's good that we envolved from this

    Cheebo Chevere

    All art , music and films are rehash. Nothing is original. You cannot simply judge a band because it is borrowing from the past... ALL art borrows from the past. 15 years ago, the bands were borrowing from 15 years earlier, and so on. Read up on art history or music theory or Jean Baudrillard's "Simulacra and Simulation to gain a little insight.

  7. constant perception

    Everything about their change is amazing. Ross' melodies and singing are great. Instrumentation is just great. Glad they have kept going with their changes

  8. no thx

    hey relapse fuck you

  9. GreatSmithanon

    Finally some good fucking music.

  10. mousiedung

    Cue bitching about the lack of blast beats and death growls in 3...2...1..

    Troy Gustafson

    Can I bitch about ceremony never having death growls?

  11. Mike Bawakami

    I have always been a fan of the hardcore stuff, but this is amazing in its own way. Fuck yeah m8's.

  12. Kool Rock Radio

    So KOOL!

  13. Ross Horton

    I can hear shades of Arctic Monkeys in the bass (Crying Lightning), Bauhaus in the guitar/bass interplay, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, and some Cage the Elephant in the overall vibe. Superb

  14. Steve M

    People are all upset that Ross and company grew the fuck up. That's your perogative. These dudes don't give a shit about making you happy and that's commendable. Keep. It. Up.

  15. bad friends

    *upgrades

    Wait fuck this go back. This is terrible

  16. Brenno Lorran

    Amazing. Big fan from Brazil!

  17. Rob G.

    This is horrible. I mean, really bad. I use to like these guys and the Bay Area Hardcore sound they had. Now, they're giving in to the hipster crowd. Thumbs down for sure!

    Tim McCarthy

    I hate to make this point like many others have but their name Ceremony comes from the song by New Order so they've always been influenced by that genre. Don't get me wrong, I love their older stuff n kinda "miss" it I guess butchu gotta at least respect the growth n change of pace

    MegaLuxury1

    Sure because they are going to be rich in relapse records, and let me tell you a secret they actually change their sound a few years back not now!

    Suburbannite

    Shut up dummy 🤡🤡

    frenchspreeee

    If your expectations doesn't coincide with music that band wants to play, it doesn't means that band is bad or sell out.

  18. 619 OG

    First !

  19. RelapseRecords

    CEREMONY make their Relapse Records debut with their highly ambitious new album, 'In the Spirit World Now'! The album sees CEREMONY at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Rohnert Park quintet take various influences from post punk and rock to create one of the summer's most compelling and infectious records.

    "In the Spirit World Now" is full of layered sonic fury and anxiety, each song building up to a point and then descending down through a militant, catchy hook. “Turn Away the Bad Thing” sets the tone, guitars climbing around the driving bass line, as Ross Farrar sings, “It’s getting harder for me to be alright/Eyes adjusting to the dark/The momentum of all these last resorts built inside of me.” Songs like “Presaging the End” and “Calming Water” feel romantic and distressed, while “Further I Was” and “Years of Love” are driven by Farrar’s rebellious energy as he repeats the hook with a deadpan realness. “Years of love can be forgotten/In the hatred of a day.” But the true stand-out is the title track, “In the Spirit World Now”, a haunting pop gem with a sticky chorus and lead synth riff that plants itself in your head as Farrar chants the track’s name over and over like a mantra.

    “In the Spirit World Now" is a sort of nebulous and ectoplasmic place where things may not be quite what they seem,” he says. “It means sh*t is about to get weird.” The album marks a milestone for this Northern California punk outfit who have stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth throughout their storied career.
