lyrics

Hi my name is Ninja, music fan for 20 years
There’s something that we’ve wanted,
Something we hold close and dear to our tortured souls
Even though it’ll tear us apart
Music’s all that matters that why it stole our fucking hearts

It’ll set you there and there’s nothing more to strive for
We care so much about this that we’re willing to die
Before we go back home, running scared to our parents
We’ve got a message and we must share it

Change is knocking at your front door
(This is the most perfect time)
Never needed civil unrest like this before
(Take a chance, sing a song it’ll save your life)
Time to take a breath and be ready to fight
(Don’t you know it’ll set you free)
Music without message is a way to end your life
So start looking for a set of answers that you know you will never forget

Why do you represent a brand and not use your spotlight to demand
some radical social change so that things don’t stay the same?
Stop negating your self worth being boring never works
Push the envelope and push yourself, complacency is never worth the wealth

It’ll set you there and there’s nothing more to strive for
We care so much about this that we’re willing to die
Before we go back home, running scared to our parents
We’ve got a message and we must share it

Change is knocking at your front door
(This is the most perfect time)
Never needed civil unrest like this before
(Take a chance, sing a song it’ll save your life)
Time to take a breath and be ready to fight
(Don’t you know it’ll set you free)
Music without message is a way to end your life
So start looking for a set of answers that you know you will never forget

Bands nowadays just like to play it safe
(Don’t you know this is the most perfect time?)
Nothing of value left to say
(Take a chance, sing a song and save your life)
Guess they don’t see things our way.
(Don’t you know it’ll set you free?)
We preach a different way so that things can be fixed
