The Sound Of Revolt


Pettybone were drawn together through the individual struggles they had encountered in their lives and the desire to speak up about their experiences. Their music is "the sound of the revolt"; raw, angry and deeply emotional, taking you sonically on a journey of self-empowerment. Put more simply by the band : "what once was powerless becomes powerful and the catalyst for this change is Pettybone"

Pettybone is the voice of the voiceless
Pettybone is the voice of the oppressed
The sound of revolt for all those that were told they're useless
For all those who lost their youth in the process
For all the kids that believe in their dreams but the fucked up system cut their wings
For all those living in poverty on the edge with (in) sanity
For all the vagabonds and homeless
For all the women who fight for freedom and respect
For all the immigrants trying to make their way through the London streets
For all the sisters and brothers in need
For all the truth seekers...
You have a voice
(cuz) Another world is possible...

We will be the noise
So listen to what we say
Screaming from the top of our lungs
There is no other way

We will not be silenced
We’re here to fuck it up
You tried to hold us down
But we will stand our ground

Fed up of being nothing
From our hearts resist
All our dreams corrupted
From our hearts resist
Our innocence smothered
From our hearts resist
Anxiety awaits
Unless we let our hearts resist

Our every movement controlled with every step
By Police, state and boys playing god
Telling us how to live our lives

Blinded and numbed
Enslaved and paralysed
The time has come
To play our own games
Let’s take it all back
Our body and mind roaming free
We do what we want
You don’t like it?
But we don’t fucking care

Le Regard

Feeling so low
Emotions severed
It feels like a game that I’m not playing
Can I have my life back please?
You know, the one you stole when I was young
Advertising intrusion
Men in suits don’t sit well with me
The gaze that follows me all the time
Feels like a shackle around my body
I feel safer in the shadows
Where you cannot look at me
I am tired now
I am tired of running away
I am tired now
I am tired of running away
You try to lure me with your sweet temptations
Tailor made images and expectations
I feel sick
Your constant drone, it never ceases
You think you can catch me with your hooks?
There are many dawns that have yet to break
But each one will be my chance to shine
Away from you
