Lyrics Edit

Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roah

I
Believe in our fate
We don't need to fake
It's all we wanna be
Watch me freak!

I say
We're growing every day
Getting stronger in every way
I'll take you to a place
Where we shall find our

Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots

Rain
Bring me the strength
To get to another day
And all I want to see
Set us free

Why
Can't you see
Can't you feel
This is real

Ah
I pray
We don't need to change
Our ways to be saved
That all we wanna be
Watch us freak
