DROWN THIS CITY – ‘New Burn Order’ Videosingle von Down Under

In der unwahrscheinlichen Schnittmenge von Symphonic und hartem Metal-Core siedeln die Australier rund um Sängerin Alex Reade, die in dem Song die Vergangenheit mit ihrer Familie aufarbeitet. Neu bei der Band und hier erstmalig zu sehen ist Bassist und Co-Vocalist Toby Thomas.

Zur Hintergrund des Songs erzählt sie:

“There’s a line that says ‘You said you were ashamed to share my DNA, I’m sorry to tell you we are counterparts – mirror image, blurred view’… I want to tell them we are cut from the same cloth, my destruction is their destruction, my shame is their shame. They don’t have what it takes to survive this and I’m going to show them I do”, adding: “While you are not responsible for what happens to you, but you are for how you react. True freedom is acceptance that all our feelings, hurts, pains, vices, they belong to us now and we must battle them alone – carry them with pride – I’m not burning to be annihilated but to be cleansed and set free”.

Lyrics:

Remember when you said

I’d amount to nothing

Remember when you let me fall

Set fire to the walls

The world crashed all around me

Losing it all

You watched me burn

But a fire will burn faster uphill

You said you were ashamed

To share my DNA

I’m sorry to tell you

We are counterparts

Mirror image, blurred view

 

Set fire, set me ablaze

And let me heal

The empty space

 

Dowsed in kerosene

(You watched me burn)

This hollowed structure set alight

Time itself stood still

Not knowing how to begin to heal

(Down to nothing)

 

Whoa – We’re getting away from this place

Whoa – Bringers of hell

We are the sons and we are ready

Drifting away

We are, we are the sons

 

But I can’t seem to break these chains

Tightly bound to my aching frame

You weigh me down

The counterweight, the counterbalance

Our mutual pulse shattering through my chest, grass no longer greener

The ash reveals remains of non-believers

 

A fire burns

You weigh me down

 

Set fire, set me ablaze

And let me heal

The empty space

Set fire, set me ablaze

And let me heal

The empty space

In my heart

 

(we are, we are, we are the chosen ones)

Fated mirror, watch me fall

(we are we are, bringer of hell)

Jaded father, hollowed stone

(we are, we are, we are the chosen ones)

Now you watch me turn

Hallowed be our thrown

 

Whoa – We’re getting away from this place

Whoa – Bringers of hell

We are the sons and we are ready

Drifting away, we are, we are the sons,

We are, we are, we are the chosen ones

We are, we are, we will come home
