Liner Notes

#needs_collab #politics #revolution
I probably write at least 1 lyric in each 50 90 or FAWM that is about the topic of division in society. Quite like the way this one came out

Lyrics

Kicking Cans

(Verse 1)
Two boys kicking cans down the road
On opposite sides of a tall brooding wall
Same Messi replica kits
But they'll never be on the same side at all

(Verse 2)
Two girls singing songs that they love
On opposite sides of that tall monstrous wall
Same Rihanna tour t-shirts
But they won't sing together until that wall falls

(Sound denoting a wall crashing down)

(Chorus)
Tear it down
Smash it down
With hammers and fists
Knock it down
Bash it down
With karate kicks

(Verse 3)
Some men preaching hate on the streets
On opposite sides of their beloved wall
Same old tapestry of lies
Their view of the world is so dated and small

(Verse 4)
Some suits sitting tight on their hands
Safely away from that constructed wall
Same fake promises to help
But we know that they’ll do sweet bugger all

(Chorus)
Tear it down
Smash it down
With hammers and fists
Knock it down
Bash it down
With karate kicks

(Bridge)
Could be Palestine
Could be Belfast
Could happen anywhere
Where hate’s allowed take root and last

(Chorus)
Tear it down
Smash it down
With hammers and fists
Knock it down
Bash it down
With karate kicks

What a wonderful lyric. Great social commentary with a poetic touch using these individuals as examples of a bigger problem. May I have a go at putting this to music? I got something a little bluesy in mind.
