"The Precipice" is Deathwish's newest single and the first new recording released by the band with their new line up.


So here we stand -
Stagnant, complacent -
Heads against the wall

At a loss -
Not for purpose,
But for a renewed resolve

Weighed down, wading in apathy
Grains of sand tipping the scale
Waiting on a gift from Providence,
Too afraid to venture beyond the pale

Overcoming the fear of failure,
Overcoming the self

And hesitation
Momentum in decay

A labyrinth
Of excuses built
On a foundation of fear

Emerge from your slumber,
Atrophied limbs find new strength
Flames wane, but the ember still remains
Beneath a decade of dust

Overcoming the fear of failure,
Overcoming the self

Fight or flight - the momement of fear
Opportunities never last
Step up to the precipice
And never look back


released August 30, 2016
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris Piquette at No Boundaries Studios in Providence, RI.
