Noises closing in from all sides
Warning all the ways to die
They say "you'd better give up
You'd better give up"
"I'll never give up, I'll never give up"
I'll be an army, no you're
Not gonna stop me gettin'
I'll sing a marching song and
Stomp through the halls louder than
I could surrender but I'd
Just be pretending, no I'd
Rather be dead than live a lie
Burn the white flag
For Memorial Day, I thought of this song about standing your ground. I'm more of a "stick flowers in your guns" gal generally, but agree there are things we must fight for. For the record, the lyrics aren't meant to be about war anyway. Lead singer/songwriter Natalie Closner says it's actually about not giving in to fear mongering. Joseph is a trio of sisters out of Portland, Oregon. This track is from their 2016 album I'm Alone, No You're Not - their first release on Dave Matthew's label (ATO Records).
