lyrics

Never alone, got a story to tell.
Speak with your eyes, but you say you mean well.
I know you'd love to rip it down and out,
Better things to do than spend it in doubt.
Better alone rather than as a friend,
See you again, it'll be too soon then.
I know you live to see me torn and thin.
Scream but I'm not listening.

Ooh no, you've got a big stick, but I've got a stiff back.
You'll never keep me down.

Clap and crawl, never stay for a while.
Crickets call, no response with a smile.
Pocket picking but the picking’s thin,
Slash and burn with a dead-eyed grin.
Smoke and mirrors' got different side,
Sharpened shark teeth giving way with a lie.
One way down, no direction now.
Crickets echo in doubt.

Ooh no, you've got a big stick, but I've got a stiff back.
You'll never keep me down.

Ooh no, you've got a big stick, but I've got a stiff back.
Don't let them keep you down.
Gotta be pleasant for a snake with a crown.
You'll never keep me down.

about

Iduna Toronto, Ontario

Iduna makes alternative rock music that wrestles with the question of what it is to be and who we should be to each other. Building on the sounds of The Smashing Pumpkins, Matthew Good Band, Biffy Clyro, and Kings of Leon with a political tinge, their songs are replete with questions about modern morality and the state of being an empathetic person in a world complicit with injustice. ... more
