about

This was the first song I wrote when YTN first started. I was coming out of a creative place that I was very unhappy in and for a while wasn't writing. I didn't feel like I had anything important to say anymore. This song is me rediscovering my voice and my anger.

lyrics

V1

It's your word against mine

And that's fine.

I am the heat death of the universe

It'll all be over in time.

It's your world against mine

And I'm ok with that.

I want to consume the planet

Until I'm bloated and fat.


:Chorus:

I thought I was a goner

With nothing else to say.

But then a fire started roaring

And it just won't go away.

I've still got anger in my soul

If you could believe in that.

I just ate my finger nails

And tasted blood when I spat.


V2

There is a vast hole in my life

Where my hopes have finally withered.

I've been wound up oh tight.

I feel the knots deep in my liver.

If I try to sing out I don't know if you'll hear me

But I'll pull the microphone closer

In an attempt to speak more clearly.

V3

Lets light a fire across the oil spills

In the ocean so polluted

We forget that we intruded

On the timely evolution of the world.

It's on us.

Let's build a wall of broken buildings

In the bombed out ego centrals.

We'll take a walk over the bodies of a thousand new inventions made to kill.

Made to kill.


:Chorus:

I thought I was a goner

With nothing else to say.

But then a fire started roaring

And it just won't go away.

I've still got anger in my soul

If you could believe in that.

I just ate my finger nails

And tasted blood when I spat.
