CROWN

Throughout the West people are losing faith in democracy. Whichever way votes are cast the fundamental issues of poverty in societies seem to never be resolved. Hundreds of millions of disenfranchised voters see the rich getting richer, corporates not paying their fair share of taxes and politicians of all persuasions promising much and delivering little.

Our children come into a world of uncertainty and are the first generation to be worse off than the previous by many economic measures. We have detached from the same old arguments and 'same old thinking' that leads to decline and stifles progress. This song is not a call to violence, but is a reflection of the self-evident reality that many yearn for a new way of governance. We hope the youth can unchain themselves from advertising, consumerism, slavery to money and the prejudice of dogma to create a better future. Big ideas, but things are changing - the old system is cracking.

LYRICS

Go, go, go, smash it all down
Challenge all the rules
Don't suffer fools who claim a crown
You, you, you, dreaming of it
Know your bones and dance your own way
Keep your faith and never sway
From who you are

Rising, from the depths of dark seas
Reaching for the surface
Ascending up to breathe
Watch us, break free, fly and soar high
Bright stars on the skyline
This is, this is our time to

Stay
True to yourself

Go, go, go, smash it all down
Challenge all the rules
Don't suffer fools who claim a crown
You, you, you, dreaming of it
Know your bones and dance your own way
Keep your faith and never sway
From who you are

We know the odds are stacked
The haters hate but we'll fight back
Our faith is strength to see us through
These battle lines we've drawn with you

We hold these reigns, this change, this wave, this movement, conquer kingdoms
Stand for future generations
Fight for choices, fight for freedom

Stay
True to yourself

Go, go, go, smash it all down
Challenge all the rules
Don't suffer fools who claim a crown
You, you, you, dreaming of it
Know your bones and dance your own way
Keep your faith and never sway
From who you are.
