The end is nigh, but Silverstein have embraced the spirit of the anxiety felt in their new song “It’s Over.”

The band’s latest track follows on the heels of early 2021’s “Bankrupt” and it’s a fiery tune laying the angst felt in a defeated situation to waste.

Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau reveals, “This song is the spiral that leads to giving up. Those anxiety packed hours when you can’t feel anything but the low, steady crescendo of panic that eventually gets so intense your fingertips lose sensation. It’s hopeless to feel but pointless to endure. I didn’t learn anything from feeling that way. I just wanted it to stop.”

Silverstein, “It’s Over” Lyrics

It’s all falling down around me

The last grain of sand slipping through the hourglass
And it can be so overwhelming
Like racing to a red light

Someone cut the brake lines

Nothing’s making sense
I’m running out of breath
My heart is beating faster and faster

It’s happening again

The walls are closing in
I’m trying to hold on but it feels like the end

Cue the curtain call roll the credits it’s over

Death is creeping in and it’s never been closer

All the violins won’t make us sink slower
Put me in the ground throw the flowers it’s over

The last time it almost killed me
I could see myself drifting through the afterlife

And from hell I saw my body lifeless
Flat on my back tied up to the train tracks
Take me out of this world
Where trust is corruption
I’ll always be the pariah
So give me death and destruction
I smashed it all into pieces
Rolled in the glass till I bled
This whole ride was just a headrush
Drop the flowers I’m dead
