about

Aperture is the third of three singles that Amongst Heroes recorded in the summer of 2015.

lyrics

How could you take this away?
I thought we agreed this meant everything.
Worked so hard just to meet expectations,
But in the end we lost all aspirations.
This was a let down.
Broken, haunted memories surrounding me.
On the edge of the cliff on the mountain steep,
I can only achieve my dreams when I'm fast asleep.

Waking up to find that I've been dreaming,
All of this time put to waste.
If I could turn back the clock and erase this pain,
I would scorch this earth and salt what remains.

Reframe and focus the picture on what's come to pass.
We raised an empire built on sand
It's crumbling down, it's all crumbling now.
Now all that's left is a fractured disappointment
I don't understand, this is not what I'd planned
When will I make my mark?

Once an outcast and on my own,
I finally thought I had found a home.
When push came to shove, it just wasn't enough.
I'm about to lose everything I love.

Waking up to find that I've been dreaming,
All of this time put to waste.
If I could turn back the clock and erase this pain,
I would scorch this earth and salt what remains.

I'm tired of waking up to find
That my dreams are hiding in my mind.
I'm awake and taking what is mine
The nightmare is finally over
(I'm awake)
I'm taking back what is mine.
Fuck

I'm taking back what is mine.
