Love this song


Not really a huge metal fan, but this metal band made a very sad, yet, at the same time, uplifting, and soft song. It is amazing. - Alpha101

"I woke up from the same dream:
Falling backwards, falling backwards

A model citizen of doubt.

Until one day I had enough
Of this exercise of trust." - Metal_Treasure

I heard this song and Shazamed it at my cousin's dance recital. It's a very deep song that's one of my personal favorites. It came out in 2015 and has 400K Shazams, but I've never heard in on the radio, none of my friends have heard it or of it, but I think it's simply breathtaking.
