lyrics

Set out on your journey; you're now in exile
They label and define you away
Passive and complicit all the while
You readily rot and decay

Now cast to a cult of lepers
Your only route to salvation
Always recovering, but never better
Acquiesce to your ablation

Shedding skin, to become one of them
Mind and body quickly become a wreck
Removing limbs, purging self of sin
Hang the albatross around your neck

Is this really who you want to be?
At the mercy of grifters and fools
They say you’re sick, rife with disease
You’re to blame for the harm that ensues

Yes, you’re ill, but will you get well
Taking all these steps to nowhere?
Reducing you to a mere shell
They will break you in the name of care

Shedding skin, to become one of them
Mind and body quickly become a wreck
Removing limbs, purging self of sin
Hang the albatross around your neck

Is this really who you want to be?
At the mercy of grifters and fools
They say you’re sick, rife with disease
You’re to blame for the harm that ensues

I implore you, find resolve within
You’re full of light and standing tall
Make a new beginning, not an end
And know I’ll be there if you fall

Shedding skin, to become one of them
Mind and body quickly become a wreck
Removing limbs, purging self of sin
Hang the albatross around your neck

Is this really who you want to be?
At the mercy of grifters and fools
They say you’re sick, rife with disease
You’re to blame for the harm that ensues

Break the chains, break the chains
Be free from suffering, don’t hide from the pain
Break the chains, break the chains
Reject their ways, don’t accept their blame

Is this what you thought you would be?
In the company of liars and thieves
Thoughtless invaders of the mind
You’re no good down on your knees

about

Northern Crown Florida

In the cracks between the Doom, Prog, and Rock n’ Roll genres, Northern Crown find a unique fit. Their first EP, “In the Hands of the Betrayer”, knocked on the door to the halls of classic metal. Their first album, “The Others”, tested its footing on the fringe of prog. Their self-titled second album was a hydra waving the flag of Doom n’ Roll. "In A Pallid Shadow" will be released July 3, 2020. ... more
