Song lyrics: Wage War – Don’t Let Me Fade Away

We all hide behind a mask
A product of our own self destructive past
We all ache for something deeper than the surface
Searching for anything to break the name “worthless”
If only we could see the damage we cause ourselves
It often seems our best intentions pave the road to hell
We do it to ourselves
It’s got me overwhelmed
I’ve never fallen this far
It’s never been this dark
Take me back to better days
Before I was a slave to the choices that I have made
There’s gotta be a better way
This can’t stay
Don’t let me fade away
Don’t let me fade away
I just can’t make another day
Don’t let me fade away
I’ve been torn down to nothing
We all want to be set free
Enslaved to emotions or someone
We’re ripping at the seams
Can’t seem to stop the bleeding
Too blind to see the cycle repeats
Feels like I’m made to fail
You pick the coffin and I’ll drive the nail
We all hide behind a mask
We all want to be set free
If you can hear this
If you can feel this
Don’t let me fade away
If you can hear this
If you can feel this
Don’t let me fade away
Give me a sign
Tell me everything will be alright
Give me a sign
These idle hands
Adept for a crime

About the band

Briton Bond (Vocals), Cody Quistad (Guitar, Vocals), Seth Blake (Guitar), Chris Gaylord (Bass), Stephen Kluesener (Drums) ­ With over five years of unmatched determination, the culmination of five Florida musicians’ effort is ready to be unleashed. Guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad and guitarist Seth Blake met in high school when they discovered that they shared musical interests, and started jamming soon thereafter. In 2013, the duo encountered vocalist Briton Bond and, shortly after, bassist Chris Gaylord and drummer Stephen Kluesener were incorporated into the mix. The line-up alone of Ocala, Florida’s Wage War sheds a more-than-welcome light on the importance of a solid foundation built upon evolving musicianship. Wage War marks their territory with from-the-heart lyrics and thrashing beats that transcend to a community who understands the trials and tribulations of growing up all too well.

In fact, Wage War IS that community, as Quistad explains, “A lot of the themes in our songs are about growing up to be a productive person, and dealing with the real things that can happen in life and coping with circumstances that could be problematic,”says Quested. “The first single we’re releasing, ‘Alive,’ is an anthem to all the naysayers out there that are always talking about our generation being a bunch of losers.”

Blueprints, the band’s debut album co-produced by A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon along with Andrew Wade, resounds with all of the tension and ingenuity of its creation. The band delivers 11 tracks of uncompromising multi-dimensional metalcore, filled with high-intensity rhythms, battering drums and blazing guitars, tempered with tuneful vocal passages. Crushing breakdowns alongside a combination of roaring and melodic vocals prove powerful enough to level a small village. Yet, Wage War aren’t focused solely on destruction.

“The goal of Blueprints was to establish a foundation,” Quistad says. “It’;s our first record and our first chance to show people what we’re about. So we really went all out to deliver the best songs we could possibly write and play them to the best of our ability. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised.”
