lyrics

Small Moments

This is what it’s like
To finally give in
It’s a soft and subtle cry
“I don’t have the heart for it”

(As I attenuate)
The sound of breaking down
(Trace back the lines)
That guides us to our ends
(Understanding in time)
I shouldn’t be surprised
That Sometimes

I hate the sky,
I hate the deep blue sea
And everything between
These are my own failings

It’s the small moments that mean the most
But pain is the last thing we forget

This is what its like
To know you need to change
I’m a stranger to myself
Which makes it hard to face

(Calling out I defy)
Remember what it’s like
(Calling out to the sky)
But the stars won’t tell me how
(Knowing nothing is right)
What is it that I have missed?
Why do I feel this way?

I fear the how
I fear the why
You can see it on my face
I’ve been told I have sad eyes

It’s the small moments
That mean the most
But pain is the last thing
That we forget

It’s not enough to simply drift aimlessly from moment to moment
Missing the innocence of childhood
With age comes the wisdom that the smallest moments
Make the heaviest of hearts
Searching for something to drown out the voices
“You are not enough, you never will be”
So I have to find another way
I’ll find another way

It’s not enough to simply exist
So I’ll find another way
I’ll find another way

about

Roman Lions San Jose, California

Starting as the side project of Baltimore-raised brothers Justin and Matt Tracy, Roman Lions took shape after the brothers relocated to California where they expanded their sound and their lineup.

Including former members of A Perfect Kiss, I Am Empire, and Octaves, Roman Lions combine the emotional intensity of screamo, the build-and-break grandeur of post-rock, and the heaviness of hardcore.
