about

On January 20th 2017, Donald Trump (R) will be sworn into office. While his supporters rejoice, millions worldwide are now left terrified for their safety, their freedom, even their lives.

The day after Trump was elected by <25% of Americans, the daily national suicide rate skyrocketed by several hundred per cent. The main words associated with calls and texts to national lifelines were "election", "scared", and "LGBTQ".

The weekend of the un-auguration, we could easily see another epic rise in suicide rates. WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN.

Today, regardless of which "side" you're on, REACH OUT to a friend you know or fear may be afraid or suffering during this time. Extend your COMFORT and SUPPORT. Keep the people you love SAFE.

We wrote and recorded this song in the last few days as an afterthought, to remind our fans and friends and anyone else out there who needs to hear it today that YOU ARE NEVER, EVER ALONE.

Download for free if you need to. Donate if you want to. All donations for the track will go back into recording our upcoming album, of a similar feel, genre, and theme to this track.

about

Kieran Strange Vancouver, British Columbia

He’s been compared to David Bowie, Tony Stark, Ramona Flowers, Hawkeye, and Tank Girl! – but IRL, he’s Kieran Strange, a powerful young artist blending pop sensibilities, dynamic guitars, and high-energy live rock shows into his own brand of geeky British pop-punk.

At the tender age of seventeen, he left his small English fishing village to write songs about rebellion, relationships, and RPGs.

Track Name: Stay Strong, Stay Safe (Live Demo)
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
Strange, Kieran // Kitsberg, Dave

I WOKE UP TODAY AND I HATED THE WORLD
BURIED MY FACE AS THE BANNERS UNFURLED
THEY SAY I’M WRONG
BUT I’VE BEEN TOLD I’M WRONG FOR FAR TOO LONG
IF THEY COULD STRETCH THE WALLS OF THEIR MIND
EMPATHIZE, AND SEE THROUGH OUR EYES
THEY’D REALIZE
JUST WHY WE’RE SO NUMB

WE COULD RUN, RUN AND HIDE
BUT THAT’S NOT OUR STYLE

Chorus
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
KEEP FIGHTING FOR OUR FATE
PUSH THROUGH THE PAIN AND
KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT THE ONE TO BLAME
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
I’LL BE HERE JUST IN CASE
YOU FEEL BETRAYED AND
NEED TO KNOW YOU’RE NOT ALONE TODAY

YOU WOKE UP TODAY, AND YOU TOOK TO THE STREETS
YOU DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU’RE GASSED OR YOU’RE BEAT
YOU’RE GONNA BRING THE HEAT
AND AS THE RAIN IS COMING DOWN IN SHEETS
HATE WON’T MAKE US AS GREAT AS THE LOVE
THAT’S ALREADY GOT US AS FAR AS WE’VE COME
WE DON’T MEAN TO IMPUGN
BUT SEEMS OUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT TOO SOON

THERE’LL BE NOWHERE TO HIDE
BUT THAT’S NOT OUR STYLE
(IT’S JUST NOT ME, IT’S JUST NOT ME, THAT’S JUST NOT ME!)

Chorus
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
KEEP FIGHTING FOR OUR FATE
PUSH THROUGH THE PAIN AND
KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT THE ONE TO BLAME
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
WE’LL BE HERE JUST IN CASE
YOU FEEL ENRAGED AND
NEED TO KNOW YOU’RE NOT ALONE~~~
YOU’RE NOT ALONE---

(SOLO)

STAY STRONG, STAY BRIGHT
KEEP LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT
REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT ALONE TONIGHT
STAY STRONG, STAY BRIGHT
ADAMANTINE HEARTS IGNITE
REMEMBER THAT YOU’RE NEVER ALONE~

Chorus
SO- STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
KEEP FIGHTING FOR OUR FATE
PUSH THROUGH THE PAIN AND
KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT THE ONE TO BLAME
STAY STRONG, STAY SAFE
I’LL BE HERE JUST IN CASE
YOU FEEL BETRAYED AND
NEED TO KNOW YOU’RE NOT ALONE TODAY
