Pride - Lyrical breakdown

August 8, 2018

Pride

When I write my lyrics, I usually try to keep them fairly multi-interpretable.

Pride for me was a story about how people spend too much time showcasing themselves through social media.

Not being present in the moment, not appreciating their physical and spiritual surroundings, but instead manufacturing their story with that “perfect” snapshot of their lives.

 

During my travels and even daily interaction with people, I am somewhat disappointed when I see individuals live their lives around selfies. Constantly wanting to be “a part of something” but in reality they aren’t experiencing anything. Call it bragging rights or a vehicle to feed their low self esteem/ego, but it’s not a healthy lifestyle or solution to any personal conflicting problems. You can almost see the hollowness in their smile.

 

The lyrics also hints at our current political spectrum and how humanity feels on edge to if we have a sustainable future. Everyone is on the defence - people have lost empathy and rational.

 

The age of internet and bullying - many people who aren't grounded and comfortable with who they are will be pressured into living these manufactured lives.

 

 

Lyrics

[Verse 1] 

Wait.. 
For the reason-their-self-pleasing that they crave... 
Fabricate, just can't relate on what they say.. 
Visualise, they falsify what makes their day.. 
But my findings. they make me want to.. 

[Chorus] 

Stay!! For the moment! With the ones that give you peace...! 
Pick a side! to keep your pride! their shits released.. 
Fuck the crimes! the hate and lies! they try to, feed.. 

I can see the very start of this old war.. 
I will not be taking part, not anymore.. 
Woaaa ohhh... 
That my pride will be the one to see me through 
Woaaa ohh... 

[Verse 2] 

Fake.. 
Their own lives! personified as what they made.. 
They will try! to fill the void on what they hate.. 

All the writings on the wall to like and share.. 
But my findings. they make me want to! 


[Chorus] 

Stay!! For the moment! With the ones that give you peace...! 
Pick a side! to keep your pride! their shits released.. 
Fuck the crimes! the hate and lies! they try to, feed.. 

I can see the very start of this old war.. 
I don't want to be a part, not anymore.. 
Woaaa ohhh... 
That my pride will be the one to see me through 
Woaaa ohh... 

[Bridge] 
But you know that 
These feelings 
They just cannot stay 

I'll show you why 
Reasons to 
Live without shame! 

Woaaa ohh... 
That my pride will be the one to see me through 
Woaaa ohhh... 
That my pride will be the one to see me through 
Woaaa ohh...
