about

Symmetry Tir., Austria

SYMMETRY is a young band from Austria based in the mountains of the Zillertal. We are just four friends playing music we like and have a good time. The songs we are writing are melodic with a dash of melancholy, inspired by life. In near future we will try to set up some shows and play live.

Founded in February 2014 we started to create songs despite all our individual influences.

Track Name: Autumn Wind
Push from my mind
the image of your withered face
fade out of view and watch the sky darken above me

you were the last leaf
carried by the autumn wind
my eyes followed you, on every turn you made
until the cold took you away

Was it ever enough?
The love I gave to you
Cause now I‘m lost in the dark
and my heart is torn in two

Was it ever enough?
The love I gave to you
Cause now I‘m lost in the dark
and my heart is torn in two

Was it ever enough?
The love I gave to you
Cause now I‘m lost in the dark
and my heart is torn in two

No, it won‘t be the same
desperately chasing a dream
No, I won‘t pretend
I got the time, to come to terms
As the leaves change
your words come to mind
“Be my autumn wind, and I‘ll be your summer sky”
Track Name: Black & White
There are those days I can‘t step out of my own way
I‘m stuck inside my head with nothing left to say

There are those nights I feel afraid to fall asleep
because I can only dream in black and white, I‘m
colorblind

I know there is more to life
than just stains of black and white
and I‘m learning again to see the colors for what they are

I know there is more to life
than just stains of black and white
and I‘m learning again to see the colors for what they are

but still my feet touch, sway and sweep
over cold cement, on empty streets

I tell myself „Be gone“
All I ever cared for were the colors

I tell myself „Be gone“
All I ever cared for were the colors and
how they run ...
how they run ...

All I ever cared for ...
All I ever cared for ...

I know there is more to life
than just stains of black and white
and I‘m learning again to see the colors for what they are

I know there is more to life
than just darkness and light
and I‘m learning again, what it‘s like to feel
Track Name: Cope
I can’t find comfort in our home
I can’t cope with letting you go
Keep trying to fight, keep trying to run
Would give anything to come clean with my soul

But this wound refuses to heal
Let me pour salt, so it can feel new
I’m lost and I won’t blame you
It’s hard to accept but I have to

Why can’t I just move on like everyone else is doing?
It seems I’m stuck in a cage and you’re the keygone missing
My body is growing weak, over all the things surrounding me
My mind is growing weak, over all these shattered dreams

I’ve been always waking to this dream
Where I watch you fade away
I’ve been always waking to this dream
I hear you always say
If they take my pain, we will make it
Track Name: Cardinals
Eevery winter, when the sun turns her face away
I watch the cardinals spread their wings
I want to be like them, loose of every chain
that ties me to this place, I‘ve grown apart

When you left, you shut the door behind
I guess it’s worthless to ask
„Was there ever a chance to make this right?“
When you left, I was left behind
to carry the weight of …

I still wrestle the time I spent with you
From my tired bones and blistered hands
This coldness on my skin lets me know you‘re gone
(It lets me know you‘re gone) and you won‘t come back

Will we see us again?
Will we see us again?
Track Name: Intent
I am longing for,
What we once were, as if anything would change
Throw me away
These shattered dreams, bring out the worst of me

This worn out words you cast from your mouth
I never thought they could hurt so much
You swore me off, turned my life around
But I‘m better, just not better off yet

Oh, I wish I could hate you
It‘s not in my bones to cut this out
No matter the strain on my chest
The best of me, is still taken away

I‘ll never be who I once was
And it‘s sad to think you might never know
I haven‘t had a good night’s sleep in weeks
And they‘ve turned to months
I‘m weak and tired and they won‘t go away
There‘s nothing I can do
The feelings that we don’t share
I’ve lost myself inside of you

Oh, I wish I could hate you
It‘s not in my bones to cut this out
No matter the strain on my chest
The best of me, you can‘t take away
Track Name: 45
They say that everything happens for a reason
But I can’t find a reason in all of this
They say I’ll soon enough will learn
But I don’t intent to pray these empty phrases anymore

This past year claimed everything from you
Now I stand here by your bedside, I can only watch you breathe
And I swear, oh I swear I never saw my father cry
At least till yesterday, as he refused to say goodbye

How could you let someone suffer so much pain?
Where have you been because I didn’t see you there
If you exist it seems you’d never really cared
But to be honest it doesn’t matter much to me
