Under Siege

"Thanks again to Denzeity who performed an awesome set on Sat, along with Simon Denzley's powerful vocals ,tight percusion, [and] great guitar work... - Max Mitch gig review"





Upcoming Gigs


Under Siege was the first song recorded of the sessions done at the Smokehouse and took Paul and Troy (both Engineering) by surprise as being a "Surprisingly good song".

It was written at a time when Simon was feeling emotionally trapped and explores the reaction to unreasobable emotional pressure.


This recording is a rough mix of the song, not the final releasable mix but features here as it shows the song's potential. A simple chord progression gives way to a more unusual middle eight saxaphone solo with a satifying return to the third verse.

Lyrics


Under Siege


The trouble with you departing, is you memory
And I can hold on as long as you don’t look back
‘Cause you know where to strike, what to use, how to hurt me
I can only close myself in to escape


I’m under siege x 3
I’m here alone


The trouble with these people is their stubbornness
They climb all over, looking for a way in
If they stood back and watched for a while
They would see the small door open from within


I’m under siege x3
I’m here alone
I’m under siege x3
I’m here alone


Am I now expected to show you my weakness?
After attempting to destroy all of my defense
Do you know anything about survival?
Did you think you might get back in again?


I’m under siege x3
I’m here alone
I’m under siege x3
I’m here alone
I’m under siege x3
I’m here alone


(Music and lyrics by Simon Denzley)
