The new song “Borderline Existence” follows a person locked up in an asylum, watching themselves through an out of body experience. While the lyrics tell the story of their own, they are closely tied to vocalist Alex Reade’s own personal feelings and past experience of being pressured to follow a certain path in life. Alex comments: “I’ve found myself wearing thin because of this, wondering what I was fighting against and how long could I keep going for. This song reflects the battle I feel to succeed against all odds, fuelled by sheer terror that my life will be for nothing.” She continues: “The line ‘I really thought that I’d amount to something, I should have known you’d get me in the end’ really reflects the exhaustion I feel wondering if I can keep going with this fight to be heard and understood. I’m exhausted, always pushing against, trying to win, trying to get ‘there’ and I just don’t know where that is anymore.”
