"(Breaking over the) Barriers" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, John James Douglas, Keith Leslie Smith and David John Pybus....
Floating with nowhere to hide
unspoken, twist back inside

How did we get here?
Life don't belong here

Feel like I just never tried
to find a way back to the outside
it stops me from breathing
kills all the dreaming

talking to you from the other side of a wall
in my mind
and it's clear that you're near to me.
think I found a way to understand
why I couldn't see what was happening
the fear over came me.
Took a trip on the inside
I took a trip on the inside
I try to hold on 'til this feeling is gone
break through to the other side
need to break through
to the other side of everything...

I just can't lay down and die
it takes a lifetime to understand why
it seems that you need me
but you don't seem to hear me

talking to you from the other side of a wall
in my mind
and it's clear that you're near to me.
think I found a way to understand
why I couldn't see what was happening
the fear over came me.
Took a trip on the inside
I took a trip on the inside
I try to hold on 'til this feeling is gone
break through to the other side
need to break through
to the other side of everything...

    General Commentthis is the song that made me fall inlove with anathema..it`s always pushing me forward,so that no matter how much i find this piece of shit life too fucking hard to live,i listen to this song and calms me down...
    it has this great deal of energy,giving you the idea that there is someone,anyone that cares about you and that person is worth live for...no matter what happens in your own life...

    General CommentIt's very evident that Vincent is moved by fear, hate, resentment in many of his lyrics. This is very easy to identify with if you have had a troubled childhood yet Vincent sometimes finds a way to relieve one's pain and includes a little hope too...
