Parallel, The - Monochrome Lyrics

I used to see vibrancy in all the colours
Changing seasons, now I dread every dead leaf
Wilting away like the ambition I once had
Deciduous, relinquish my intent, battered by indifference
Existential questions, no answers
Languishing in self reflection
Grey matter leads me astray to polar feelings

Leave me by the wayside
Trapped in a monochromatic dream
It's never ending
Leave me by the wayside
Trapped in a monochromatic dream
Left in a trance

If I could change one thing
I'd try to comprehend
The kind of people we've become

Fleeting passion
Dormant hearts
Ceasing perseverance
That we feel we've lost from the start

Time left me behind in a noxious gaze
What's the allure of nothingness?
A chimera in monochrome, I exist in the grey
As the flesh tone leaves my body, I am colourless
We are recollections from a hand full of moments

Now I dread every dead leaf on the ground
Wither away, wither, wither
Now I dread every dead leaf on the ground
Grey matter leads me to polar feelings

Leave me by the wayside
Trapped in a monochromatic dream
It's never ending
Leave me by the wayside
Trapped in a monochromatic dream
Left in a trance

Time left me behind
Time left me behind
Time left me behind
Time left me behind

  1. Tiffany Harmer rehmert

    If you guys need a bassist lmk!

  2. Ron Totman

    Thanks to everyone still jamming this!! <3

  3. Eagles Fan Since Super Bowl 52

    Weaver is my CD of 2018 so great job to the band. The snare drum sounds off on this song, but that's the only thing I've noticed on the whole album.


    I've been fucking waiting fuckersssss!!!!!👌😃😴

  8. Eric Grijalva

    Licked my eardrum dammit & you aint the band I was looking for . kick ASS. KEEP ME POSTED!!

  9. BK VJ

    Now let’s just hope Invogue doesn’t waste this bands time and they properly support these dudes. Can’t say they’ve done a great job with these types of bands in the past.


    face palm

    BK VJ

    invoguerecords Name me some successful heavier bands you’ve had? Whether I? Nope. The Illumination? Nope. Tours for bands like Convictions? Nope. For All I Am? Nope. If ANY other label had Famous last Words on there lineup they’d be out on tour year around. I could keep going for awhile, I’ve seen the shit first hand and I’ve talked to members of these bands in the shit little Lakewood type venues you like to throw them in and they agree this label is ran by a bunch of people who have zero clue how to properly support bands. I’ve been to about 5 shows at Lakewood and literally the max I’ve ever seen was 50 people show up, you know why? Because you and your label do a complete shit job of promoting and ensuring a band has the best chance to succeed. I argued with you on Facebook until you deleted me because my facts became to real for you and you and your owns bands know that you are wasting there time.

    Thank you so much for checking out our music! We hope you enjoyed it - stay tuned for our full length release coming this summer!


  21. protesttheryan

    Like between The Afterimage, The Northern and yourselves. You guys have incorporated clean vocals the best, hands down.

  22. protesttheryan

    Idk why I didn't give this song a full listen the first time. I've always loved your guy's shit. The guitarist's vocals are getting better with each song and is like actually really catchy. The drummer's clean are fucking spot on too. The Northern should take notes, I can't stand their auto tuned drummer, completely kills the vibes of their tracks. But this. This is so fucking amazing, I can't wait till the debut album! You have all have grown so perfectly over the years :') PS. Come to Vancouver so I can rage and blow all my money on your merch

  23. Alex Du Plessis

    So generic

    Stephen Casey

    This is not generic.


    well it's not fresh either. Pretty much a mash up of TAI and TOTA

    Logan Kalber

    If this is generic Id love to know what bands you listen to because they must be out of this world.

    Nicholas Marshall
