Philly’s FIXATION drop new track; hit the road

1 min read

Philadelhpia’s raw 80s infused punks FIXATION (WAR Records)have released a new track called “State of Anguish”, intruduced earlier this week via NoEcho webzine, for whom the vocalist Matthew Green commented:

“I wrote the track about dealing with the aftermath of trauma.

It’s the first time I’ve really written head on about that part of my experience; it’s been both cathartic and unnerving being that vulnerable, even in a hardcore song. The process isn’t fun, but it’s more common than you might think. Hopefully this strikes a chord.”


Now I fucking know

so you tried to ruin my name
like I’m not already ruined
Looking back, I was never the same
but you already knew that
you couldn’t take what’s left of my brain
so you pushed and pulled until it’s gone
so it’s gone, but I’m still here

and bleeding out because of you;
the frigid years of reopened wounds
as the prime directive of your abuse
when I’d do anything to bend over backwards again

So bury me in life’s regret
as if there’s something that I don’t get.
I already knew that I didn’t fit
now that I’ll do anything but bend over backwards again

So shut the light out; you’ll never get it
this is the soundtrack of a fucked up kid
fighting the thought that I’ll never get better
so if I’m going down, then we’ll be going together
