about

"Remainder, from the Boston area, used to be called C'est La Guerre. With the name change came some sort of rabid beast bursting forth from the deepest bowels of hell. The new songs, under the new moniker seem more intense, more catastrophic. The build-ups and break-downs are all still there, though, the level of intensity displayed on this new LP is far and away heavier and more pronounced than on previous releases. This is still very much a Screamo record, but with more prevalant doses of Chaotic Hardcore, Post-Metal and Noise-Rock peppered thoughout. Where as the first couple recorded outputs relied heavily on that Saetia/Sailboats/Portrait thing, these new songs remind me more of Botch or Me And Him Call It Us. Technical Metalcore clashing against strange noise-scapes and low-end decimation. This is not easy-listening music by any means. This LP represents the deep, dark neuroses we all live with on a day-to-day basis. The dread, dismay and hopelessness of living in a dying city and what it might take to pull ourselves out of that mire with the requisite amount of optimism and self-worth. Yes, I feel all of that when I listen to this record. Take a listen and tell me what it makes you feel."

Track Name: That Which Was Left Beating
I wander this city

Underneath the skyline

just to see your eyes

just to see your…

I wander this city

Underneath the skyline

just to see your eyes

just to see your…
Track Name: Still Restless, Still Tired
I’m exhausted, Im exhausted
I’ve forgotten the distance but still remember the fall.
Wash this crown,wash this crown
But bury it in the dirt underground.
Hold on to the leaves, hold on to the leaves
Remember the change in colors will let you fall.
I’m exhausted, I’m exhausted
I’ve forgotten the distance but still remember it all.

Become the bitter earth, rebirth,rebirth
Forgive all of your worst, rebirth, rebirth

Release those dead lives over Me,
Drink your wine just drunk Your wine.
You’re not as strong as You think
Keep Your head down but don’t forget to breathe.
Release those dead lives over Me,
Drink your wine just drunk Your wine.
You’re not as strong as You think,
Drink your wine just drunk Your wine.

Become the ice in the lungs of all the dying Children.

Make dead the Trees that let the leaves fall from These cold Hands.

Forsake these wretched Winds that let this Guilt walk on in.
What is this existence?
I feel nothing of what I’m told is a Man.
Become the bitter earth, rebirth, rebirth
Forsake these wretched Winds that let this Guilt walk on in.
What is this existence?
I feel nothing of what I’m told is a Man.
Become the bitter earth, rebirth, rebirth

Become the Ice in the lungs of all the dying Children.

Treat the wounds, these frigid Winds have given this Skin.
Give to the sky, mistook Eyes, to beat the sundown upon all of my Lies.
Make night fall forever upon the Husbands and Wives. 4X
Keep distant from the shades frost bitten tongue,
There He carries the Regrets You’ve bestowed in Lost touch.
I have given Myself to this Earth, Rebirth, Rebirth.

Forgive this City and the lies I had left in it,
Fuck this City and the Dead that walk among it.
Forgive Me for being so damn selfish.
Let Me Rebuild the Trust I had left for Dead.
Forgive this City and the Lies I had left in it,
Fuck this City and the Dead that walk among it.
Forgive Me for being so damn Selfish
Let Me Mend the Pain I’ve left in Your head!
Track Name: Balcony Scene
You don’t know what this means to me

Walking these streets, holding in my cries

(sometimes I look back and I wait, for something)

Take my fragile hands, you can feel my heartbeat

Take my fragile hands, you can feel my heartache, It

Didn’t have to be so hard, why’d this have to be so hard?

The emotions in my voice, distract me, from my words

This could be my fault.

I’m not fine, I’m not alright

My Hands, Your Heart, I'll Admit I was Wrong
Track Name: The Frozen World Thawed
How can You see through the haze of burning embers?
Can’t You feel the smoke passing through Your lungs?
How do we always forget to remember the Summer sun on our skin when We were so Young?

I tried to run from Myself in attempt to Escape My Own life.
Just to see if These Hands could Set Me Free from These frosted Tides.

These are the best Times of our Lives
But We’re all running blind.
Take chance and give Love some Time,
She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.

There’s nothing worth such heavy Dwelling on
So forgive Your Hurting and Those Who’ve Hurt You.
These are the best Times of Our Lives,
So pick Your Friends up and keep pushing on.

These are the best Times of our Lives
But We’re all running blind.
Take chance and give Love some Time,
She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.

I can’t believe that I’m Still Alive,
From the Pain I’ve put Her and Myself through.
There’s nothing so Precious on this Earth as life.
Remember being young and finding Joy in fake fights?

I can’t believe that I’m still Alive
I can’t believe that...

These are the best Times of our Lives
But We’re all running blind.
Take chance and give Love some Time,
She’ll come back or You’ll Just Find Life.
Track Name: I Exist in Pre-Dawn World
Here I am on My own two knees

Trying to put an end to this mess I’ve made

Can’t you see that I’m suffering, because of your suffering

Here I am on my own two knees

Looking for an answer to end this mess I’ve made

Can’t you see I’m suffering from what I’ve done to you

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

Again I won’t let these statues crumble

I still lied to all of you, I promise its the truth

We built from lost hope and trust

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

Again I caused her green eyed fall

I still lied to all of you, I promise it’s the truth

But I will keep clean the rust

I’ve not filled these bones with doubt

I can see you’re suffering ,I’m sorry for this suffering

Wouldn’t you just love to see My Own heart thats Bled?

So you can taste the blood that runs through These bloodshot eyes,

Beg the heavens to rain down upon me.

The River cries bring floods to Me.

I can’t bare her screams but they’re all my fault

I have torn from her dreams the fear of her heart.

I’ll do anything to keep the silence of her dreams

as her breathing falls over me

I’ll do anything to keep the silence of her dreams

I can hear the pain coming through her voice

Yet the tears still don’t shake those shallow seas

I can see the pain washing white over her face

I can see the pain, I can see the Pain

Time will wash away our doubts and fix her fragile heart

I’ll walk within the shadows and reconstruct these faults

I’d be better off roaming the streets with the dead

So I can keep clean these selfish hands.
Track Name: Barren Trees
Do You still hear Me even when I don’t Speak?

Do Your eyes gaze in or stare right through Me?

How can You Love Me when I can’t seem to

Pick My Own head up and keep pushing on.

Do You still hear me even though I don’t speak?

I’ll take a chisel to The Eyes and You’ll see that I’m just not right

Do you feel the Cold tides that rip through Me on those long Nights?

I’ll take a chisel to These Eyes and You’ll see into My Life,

Waiting for the Sunlight to ease the Darkness from My Mind.

I’ll take a chisel to The Eyes and You’ll see that I’m just not right

Do you feel the Cold tides that rip through Me on those long Nights?

I’ll take My chances to Reconstruct My Hands Mess,

Just to see the Ones I had left Rusting

I’ll take My chances to Reconstruct My Hands Mess,

Just to see the Ones I had left Rusting

When does My Grieving take notice when I’m Speaking?

When will She see that I’m just Not Breathing?

When does My Grieving take notice when I’m Speaking?

When will She see that I’m just Not Breathing?
Track Name: Forgetful Eyes
There was nothing I had done to deserve this,
I protected what I thought was mine.
Echoes catch me through the halls and I hear her speak my name
Anger in her voice, embarrassed, she persuades she’s not to blame.
My eyelids could not grace me with the comforts of my dreams
But I feel her moving in when her warmth blankets me

“lye with me, please just hold me” she speaks, so I give in
How foolish I was to disregard my comfort and take in arms.
She’s swelling up, her voice mutters in disgust, mistook indulgence.

The warmth of her body recedes, my breathing has lost pace, my hearts replaced
We got lost on our way in, with our fears set aside,
I could not fight the growing distress that plagued us,
We lost ourselves on the way out, our eyes could not recognize,

I took hold my anguish and tore through her world,
The heart you once carried has turned to rust
Inside the remnants of your walls
My voice will creep through your skin and haunt your sleep

I’ve embraced the ghosts that haunt me
I have set myself free,
I’ve embraced your ghost that haunts me
I am finally set free.
I have set myself free.
Track Name: Clear The Earth/ My Exit to Hide In
Where do you cross the line between anger and depression?

If your blood runs cold leave these tired eyes in your frustration.

Where do you cross the line between anger and depression?

How is it that the dark always holds on to our shadows?

Holding onto the things we still hate to know.

I hate to sleep the hours off but I just can’t rid this rust

I hate to sleep the hours off but I just can’t rid this rust

If only we could let the tired sleep then our best would be enough

If only we could let the tired sleep

These cards hold the name, Le Serpent Mascara, you know the game

In this endless hall no one will be there to hear me fall

Without sound I’ll continue to hide within my own blue eyes,

And I’ll admit to being so fucking selfish,

Trying to cover up all of my fucking lies .

Pity won’t save you now, her cries will pierce your eyes

Let the guilt bleed on out and this pill will ease your doubts.

Pity won’t save you now, take this pill to ease your doubts.

I wake up every day breathing

Yet that still doesn’t satisfy my prayers

For this death that waits for me

So clear the earth and carve the stone that waits for me.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, label the stone without shame

And tell everyone who knows my name that I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, label the stone without shame

And tell everyone who knows my name that I’m the only one to blame.

Shovel the dirt in my grave, I’m the only one to blame.

So tell everyone who knows my name to shovel the dirt in my grave.
Track Name: Rust in My Lungs
With open arms and lost endeavors We’ll get past this Anger and Depression

And the things that We Fear We’ll just learn to Love Them.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Green in Her Eyes.

Four years of Hope and Torment but now We know We’ll get through it

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

So all Those Who know My Name can come dig Me out from My Grave.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

There’s a reason I’m still Alive and the deal breaker was the Friends in My Life.

I’m still here and I’m still Breathing.

We’re still here and we’re still fighting

We’re still here and we’ll keep on kicking

Till our legs begin to weaken.

Please don’t let the Night crash in on Me

So take hold My Hand and pull till I’m Free.

I won’t let the Night Crash over You

So take hold My Hand and I’ll keep pulling…but …

There’s still Ice in My Lungs from the Anchors of

Crashing Ships that let the Ice Drown Them

There’s still Ice in My Lungs from the Anchors of

Crashing Ships that let the Ice Drown Them

Speak now Old Sailor, does the Fear of Drowning

Keep You from Sailing Those Wretched Waters

Speak now Old Sailor, does the Fear of Drowning

Keep You from Sailing Those Wretched Waters
