The Birthday Massacre Stream New Song 'Down'

Electronic rockers The Birthday Massacre have released “Down”, a new song from their upcoming album Hide And Seek, which comes out Oct. 9th via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). You can hear the track below as well as read the lyrics.

Vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.

The Birthday Massacre will be going on tour with William Control and Aesthetic Perfection this fall. You can check out all the tour dates here.

Lyrics:

Tell me why we never cared to do this when we still had time.
We’ll never have to give up if we never try.
I know I’ll only want it when it’s gone, into the fire.
Show me now.
I wish that I could fake it but I don’t know how.
I know we’ll never make it but I can’t stop now.
We’re only just beginning and it’s over.

Too late. No time, it’s over, and now, can’t wait.
Now it’s too late. No time, it’s over, and now, can’t wait.
And now, we all fall down.

Into the fire.
And my wishes have all come true.
We all fall down.
I don’t want it if I can’t be with you.

Leave me here.
I’ll never see tomorrow till my eyes are clear.
We never could run faster than the passing years.
I know that I won’t miss you till you’re gone, into the fire.
Cross my heart, we’ll never have to let this end if we don’t start.
We’ll never see the light till we step into the dark.

Too late. No time, it’s over, and now, can’t wait.
Now it’s too late. No time, it’s over, and now, can’t wait.
And now, we all fall down.

Into the fire.
And my wishes have all come true.
We all fall down.
I don’t want it if I can’t be with you.

There’s a lesson that we learn in the pages that we burn.
It’s written in the ashes of the fire below.
All the world is spinning round as we crash into the ground.
We’ll never be together now.

It’s too late.
