Final Coil -" …And I'll Leave" Official Lyric Video

” …And I’ll Leave” is a track taken from Final Coil’s upcoming album ‘World We Left Behind For Others’ due for release on 12-04 -2019 via Wormholedeath/The Orchard/Wormholedeath USA.

“…And I’ll leave” comes part way through the narrative arc of the album, detailing the break-up of a relationship from the perspective of a soldier’s wife. It’s clear from the lyrics that her husband is suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder triggered by his experiences during World War II and it’s equally clear that he’s self-medicating with alcohol. As with so many of his generation, the need to maintain a “stiff upper lip” trumps the desperation to communicate, and so, awash with unresolved emotion, he becomes abusive and neglectful. Although she still loves him on some level, for her own safety, she has to leave. However, much as he is trapped by the expectations of his generation, so is she; and she soon finds that the support she might have expected from her family and friends is not forthcoming. It’s a tough lesson she learns, and one that results in a self-reliance she takes to her grave. Part of a wider narrative detailing the way society has become fragmented as a result of the seismic social and cultural shifts that occurred post World War II (seen through the eyes of a family torn apart by internal strife), “…and I’ll leave” tells the all too familiar story of ordinary people trapped into destructive patterns by social convention.


I’ve said I’m leaving,
For far too many years,
You came back different,
Justified all my fears.
This life is over,
I don’t know what to be.
You ground me under,
there’s no much left of me

You can’t see me,
fall apart like this.
Taken over,
drunk on powerlessness

What have I done?
I’ve been cast out with shame
Decried a hero.
I’ve taken all the blame.
Social Pariah.
I’ll have to start again.
Never to discuss it,
I’ll take it to my grave.

You can’t see me,
Fall apart like this
Taken over,
drunk on powerlessness.
