Biography

Oposium, brought together by Richard in early 2005 are a young, fresh, modern & above all exciting band focusing on musicality and alternative harmonies for their songs. Compared in some ways to a modern Genesis or The Police, the Oposium Concept is the result of bringing four highly talented musicians together & giving them an environment in which they can be totally creative. The band is certainly a rebellion against "modest & understated" music and performances by Oposium require each of it's members to be completely on the edge of their abilities.

Lyrics

Behind The Rain

Written By: Oposium

As I stare into the morning sun
Recalling times now past and gone
Do you remember how you used to nurture me?

Just as I began to fly
Unfold into a distant sky
You held me back
You held my hand
You showed me there was no way down

You saw me crumble,
Saw me fall
You saw me crack up there in spite of it all
But you ran with me still
Even though my free will
Took me places I never should be

Eleutheria
A storm is waking
Eleutheria
Begining, breaking

There's only so much I can take
So many times this heart can break
Nothing real is left to ache
You broke the wings I never knew I had
