about

"The rise or fall of youth means the birth or death of a whole nation."

Brewing with the sentiments of young women and men deprived of their human rights, the brand new single by Schooldrivers entitled "On My Knees" dares to tell the story from the perspective of the European South. In a world where freedom is a meaningless and void word for the Lost Generation, this song is a call to rise up. An acceptance of defeat and a call to arms through a Modern Mental Rebellion.

Track Name: On My Knees
Got me on my knees
I am here just to please
I am a nation dying 
I am a family’s appease
I am a freak on a leash
I am a viral disease
I am the skeleton hiding in the closet with your keys

This is our final stand!

Hear me gracious
Listen to me gracious
Hear me gracious
Hear me now…

Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am tired of being a thorn
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am bringing freedom back home!

Got me on my knees
but it’s you the one besieged
With the power of justice
I will make all hell unleash
I am the pirate of peace
I am the rhyming police 
I am humanity with logic
I am the answer to your deeds

Recession strikes back
Our dreams (have) been painted black
I choose a life in evolution
a Modern Mental Institution
I am bringing back the revolution

Where’s solidarity?

Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am tired of being a thorn
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am bringing freedom back home
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
Through life I am rising
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I’m making a stand for my home!

People rising…
People. Rise up!

Down down… Rise up!
Down down… Rise up!
Down down… Rise up!
Down…

Down down get the motherfuckers down
hang them high and put them underground
Down down get the motherfuckers down
Shoot their brains out and spill it all around.

Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am tired of being a thorn
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I am bringing freedom back home
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
Through life I am rising
Hey eh - oh - ho - oh - oh
I’m making a stand for my…
Home!
