Today’s video is shows the proces of writing Stranger Danger. We get to hear Tom playing an acoustic version right after he wrote it. And then see how it progressed by the time the band were rehearsing it last summer.
We got a teaser of this months ago, and finally we get to hear a bit more. If any of the lyrics below are off, leave a comment. Not sure what this song is called, Distraction?
Hello it’s nice to meet you, well, not really, no.
Cos everybody’s showing up *
Do you know somewhere we can go?
I’m getting no ideas
They got them force feeding the lazy generation reasons to believe
we wanna get away, get away
from all of what we have become
Hold on it’s a momentary action
All the kids on the street making reaction
Sorry don’t mean to be a distraction
What’s the plan of action?
Chapter 13 teased a short clip of this song on their instagram account last week and left us hanging. The wait is more or less over, you can listen to a much longer clip right now!
Unfortunately this time they didn’t post the lyrics, so it will take a little bit longer to get them on the site. Here is what we have so far from this clip:
Now I’m walking on my tippie toes,
Thinking everybody knows,
More about myself than I do
Is that true
Am I a bad guy for thinking its cool to keep your bruises on the inside.
There’s girls getting sexually abused
Guys thinking its alright or its cool
Or it doesn’t really matter and its ok
Well guess what, it’s not fucking okay!
Whats wrong? Can’t a man kiss a man, or a girl kiss a girl
Or whichever way around way around they want it to be
But oh no you see
I want to be experimental in the things I try
But you can’t when you’re 16 and you’re a guy
Cos its gay or its weird
putting on my social armor getting ready to be called a queer.
Fantasy can be so much better than reality
No wait, sorry, fuck that
It is better than reality
You deserve what’s going on
You should be loved by someone
It has been all of a few minutes since the last post, but I thought you might like to know some of the things that have been added & fixed this morning. Plus, new lyrics are always needed, and some more have just been added:
