I wanna know that we make it
I wanna know that we get out alive
But this world is sinking and I can see that old look in your eyes
Staring at the horizon
Watch the sun as it falls from the sky
Watch the fire from the rooftop
Wipe a tear as the smoke hits your eye
I don't wanna know, now that I know
All alone and searching for reason
Fly in a bottle, escape within reach
In another life, in another world, through another set of eyes I believed it
Now I believe that it can fall.
I wanna know we can break it
I wanna know we can knock it all down
Start anew, start a fire in the hearts beating deep underground
And our voices will carry tonight
Through a storm filled with poison and lies
While the rest of them curl up and die inside
Now whatcha gonna do with that hope?
I don't wanna know all that I know
Don't turn your head, don't let me walk away.
Track Name: Something Better
Someday I won't hate this,
Someday I won't be scared, aimless, and empty, and waiting to disappear.
Well, is it worth the wait?
Is there another way?
Hold on for something better to find you're better off just letting go.
Reach for a piece of heaven, to find you're reaching through a darker hole.
Some will remember, the others will all forget
The face in the crowd watching over the day we met.
As we turn away, the smiles we know will fade.
Now we lie awake faced with another day.
With lyrics that move from poignant accounts of violence and inequality, to empowering anthems of self-determination and self-worth, Royal Brat’s debut is raw power. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 28, 2018
