I know this is all dead and buried but, a shallow grave is easily unearthed It's hard to suppress memories, wondering if this was what we deserved Strangled the compulsion to challenge you after all that you had done Resisted the urge to get revenge but, the blitz has just begun …and I’ll heal my bloody hands with salt, spit and sand With eyes fixed headed towards you resolute in a plan 
Shards of glass line the street, heels march on through the blood
 Serrated edge and tender meat, blistered feet march on through mud

Cold sweat, broken scream 
I have this reoccurring dream You always suffocate me to death Your name is always my last breath Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager …And then again I am alone Weighted down by my throat Couldn’t speak if I tried Left my will by the wayside Start it all over again …and how many times must I reset? Seems like an infinite regress That is me at my best Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager

The distance is too great between us He says, he knows he’s not enough 
All these lies he tells himself 
Can’t risk to show himself to someone else Numbing his inadequacies Medicating his disease 
He’s not the guy that you must see He’s not the guy he believes himself to be Numbing his inadequacies Medicating his disease 
He’s bought into his own fallacy He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes...

Something hit too close to home and that's the last place I want to be The source of all my goodness, the source of all my misery 
I lost my faith in humanity, I found out man is just another beast With someone I love the most and someone I respect the least Thinly veiled like a bride, poison bleeds on the walls outside I'm so tired of suffering these reminders of a world I can't abide Why else would I carve out my hatred and dissatisfaction? Why else would I preserve aching bones in traction? I need to walk away 
Find myself an escape 
Gain some peace of mind Heard some wounds heal with time Something hit too close to home and that's the last place I want to be The source of all my goodness, the source of all my misery 
I lost my faith in humanity, I found out man is just another beast With someone I love the most and someone I respect the least Thinly veiled like a bride, poison bleeds on the walls outside I'm so tired of suffering these reminders of a world I can't abide Why else would I carve out my hatred and dissatisfaction? Why else would I preserve aching bones in traction?

about

‘There is No Escape’ is the debut EP from Burden Limbs as a full ensemble.

Recorded live over two days in the remote site of Shaken Oak Farm, Oxford in late 2018, Burden Limb's sound has been described as “miserable bastard music” with a large variety of influences. However, the band largely likes to refer to this as ‘Jank’. The London-based five-piece worked closely with producer and mixing engineer Jake Murray (in violet), with the mastering completed by Bob De Wit, sought by the band for his work with Gnod, The Cosmic Dead and Radar Men From The Moon.

‘There is No Escape’ is an ear-bleeding assault on the senses, comprising four-unique tours through trauma and existential dread. Expect tribalistic drumming, uncomfortably personal lyrics and the gargantuan combination of two void-conjuring basses, three jagged guitars and a well-piloted synthesiser colliding with intensely vitriolic vocals. Burden Limbs is not a band for the faint of heart, whilst in this early stage of their career they’ve played very few shows, the most common descriptor for their pre-release gigs was one word - “harrowing”…and they’re just getting started.

The EP is released 6th September 2019 on Glasshouse Records, taking the form of a graphic t-shirt partnered with a digital download.
