Vera Bremerton (IT​/​UK) - New Day

about

I wrote this track upon hearing the terrible news of Jyoti Singh Pandey being gang-raped and left to die in Delhi. Despite the anger and the sense of impotence it triggered in me, I wanted to give a message of hope: we must never stop fighting and striving for our lives and happiness. This is why the stanzas sound forlorn and desperate, but are then engulfed by the loud, high-pitched and strenuous chorus.

lyrics

Do what you will. How can I blame your nature? I must obey
I am expendable, an organ full of useless blood, of pleasure
You own my fear, fear as an ideology, endless blades of fear
Do what you say, I know you want to hear me scream until you're done
(and the moment I'm silent I no longer exist)
Like burning tears over a desecrated land I'll disappear
Blinded and lost, that's the only way you will ever desire me
but I'll see a new day...
Hail a new day! Hail a new day! Hail a new day!
Mangled and torn, my flesh will never rest in peace
but I'll live in a new day...
Hail a new day! Hail a new day! Hail a new day!
Sacred, secret sunshine of a new day.
