about

'before the silence breaks' is the second album from orchestral indie-rock group batteryboy. the album title represents that second before something happens that changes the direction life will take. no matter how big or small a decision is, life is never exactly the same after the silence breaks, whether positively or negatively. the 11 songs on the album each represent a scenario of that silence breaking in some stage or aspect aspect of life. a declaration of change. words of encouragement. a desperate cry out for help. singing a loved one to sleep. sounds that bring back a lifetime of memories. laughter at play. realization of self-discovery. expression of love. saying goodbye. encouraging hope. celebrating life in death.

Track Name: recover
shut up you said i don’t want to fight
neither one of us ever turns out right
i don’t want to hear another word i don’t need you to commiserate about the way i don’t live up to how you thought i would live up to be

just live for now and hold on to me forget about any broken dreams always know i don’t want a day where i could die without you by my side

embrace me now, cause i need to know
what it feels like to believe in something better
just take my light hold it deep inside
know i found the strength i needed to recover

something in the sound that the silence brings
something in the way that you put your trust in me
everything here looks upside down feel my grip don’t look around
just look me in the eyes and tell me everything will just turn out alright

the bumps the breaks may never fade soak it up don’t hesitate
just run with arms spread wide with nothing covered naked nothing left to hide
Track Name: soil underneath
sometimes you need sad to feel happy again
if you don’t know what’s been broken
how can you start to mend
some things just can’t be started
until something comes to an end
just hang in there my friend

some days will be black until the silver begins
but you can’t see the lining until the light
startes to bend
you can’t love yourself so right
until you practice again
just hang in there my friend

some days it’s hard to handle every little thing
only to dig deep roots to grow these branches again
to feel the wind blow through and shake these leaves
again

just hang in there my friend
