This song is so strong.. vocals, lyrically, musically, it is so well put together and it’s not afraid to challenge what is going on in the world… What do I mean about the lyrics?
Well the opening line is:
“You got blood on your hands,
There’s blood in my pants, what’s the difference?
My blood is mine alone your blood’s
from a life stolen.”
The beat itself is based around a Bossa nova, and hits hard, it’s still got that soulful edge, and I love the shouts of “Hey!” it catches your attention – plus you’ve got kettle drum hits – this song could have been written in the late 60s early70s with its vibe but with a modern take… Love the pizzicato strings too.
