Brave The Wild

BandRockPunk

Brave The Wild is a Punk Rock band from Niagara & Toronto, ON that attacks the crowd with fast, angry music packed with emotion and fueled by personal experience.

BTW pours every ounce of themselves into their 2-3 minute songs; from that comes tunes that sound gritty and straight up garage punk.

Biography

A group of dudes from Welland, ON that started jamming covers of classic rock songs in their parents basement, Brave The Wild is the product of years upon years of friendship, heartbreak, teenage bullshit, and heavy drinking.

Years of being young and experimenting with the good and the bad have developed this group of pals into a heavy-hitting Punk Rock gang with experience that pulls no punches.

Lyrics

Break

Written By: Connor Johnstone

"Gahhh, D'Oh, Fuck, OW!"

Break!
(Not who you wanted to be)
This heavy heart weighs down my chest so I can't
Breathe!
(Your voice was taken away)
These brittle bones won't be so long until they
Break!

(You're so damn self-destructive)
I can't help the way I feel
(Fought tooth and nail for something)
Let myself slip
Away!
Like a poison bitterness is
(Flowing through my veins!)

Stuck somewhere so unfamiliar
What keeps my head up in it's home?
(We'll keep on pushing you forward)
My broken body's holding (on) x2

Break!
(Not who you wanted to be)
These swollen eyes have grown so wide cause I can't
Sleep!
(Your voice was taken away)
These empty words fall on deaf ears til my jaw
Breaks!

(You're so damn self-destructive)
I can't help the way I feel
(Fought tooth and nail for something)
Let myself slip
Away!
Like a poison bitterness is
(Flowing through my veins!)

Stuck somewhere so unfamiliar
What keeps my head up in it's home?
(We'll keep on pushing you forward)
My broken body's holding (on) x2

Stuck somewhere so unfamiliar
What keeps my head up in it's-
Break!
You keep on pushing me forward
My broken body's holding-
Break!

You won't let me
Break!

Circling Overhead

Written By: Connor Johnstone

This came upon us from who knows where
And our intentions were all but sincere
It didn't change what became of you
But it sure changed what became of me
Our expectations were nothing new
You were another notch on my belt
I don't deserve what you let me have
But I don't deserve what you made me take

So write another love song
About someone who left
Cause in your head saying it out loud's gonna bring 'em back
Is that still what you want
I know you think it is
But smarten up you asshole, get those thoughts out of your head

(I've made mistakes)

Circling overhead
The harpies closing in upon their prey
They'll never get me
(They'll never get me!)
Talons in my back
I'm lost but I'm not gone I'll find a way
I'll find a way

You gave them every reason
You gave them every chance
To realize that what they wanted could also be what's best
But now it's said and done
The choice was theirs to make
Better or worse hold your head high it wasn't your mistake

(Not your mistake)

Circling overhead
The harpies closing in upon their prey
They'll never get me
(They'll never get me!)
Talons in my back
I'm lost but I'm not gone I'll find a way
I'll find a way

Sober Up

Written By: Connor Johnstone

I can't even see no more
I can't even see no more
I think you'd better wait
For me to sober up

You
Told me
To go
So that's just what I'm doing
I
Want you
To know
My choices are my own

I never needed you judging me

Well I-
I can't even see no more
I can't even see no more
I think you'd better wait
For me to sober up
Can't even bleed no more
I can't even bleed no more
I think you'd better wait
For me to sober up

*woah* (x2)

I
Know you
Know you
Know you
(x2)

I can't even see no more
I can't even see no more
I think you'd better wait
For me to sober up
Can't even bleed no more
I can't even bleed no more
I think you'd better wait
For me to sober up

Stay Strong

Written By: Connor Johnstone

What you should know boy
Is to never underestimate your fears
There's a reason you feel this way now
Stay strong, you'll need to hold your ground
What you should know boy (x4)

Love him or hate him he tries damn hard
They build him up just to watch him fall
But every unlucky bastard has his one lucky day (x2)

Stay Strong

Love him or hate him he tries damn hard
They build him up just to watch him fall
But every unlucky bastard has his one lucky day (x2)

Damage

Written By: Connor Johnstone

You say these words without a thought of
What it means to them
You're dropping bombs you can't control
Don't know the damage you've done
