Here’s something different this time. The song’s from a Filipino rock band called “urbandub” and believe me, these people rock. I’ve been listening to these guys music ever since the history of forever and I still love them up until now. Their songs are usually angsty but hey, I’m pretty sure everyone can relate to most of them.
Hope you guys enjoy this song as much as I did. <3
Urbandub (stylized as urbandub) is a Filipino rock band from Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines. Since its inception in 2000, the band’s line-up has consisted of Gabby Alipe (lead vocals, guitar), John Dinopol (lead guitar, vocals), and Lalay Lim (bass guitar, vocals). The band’s current drummer is JanJan Mendoza, who has been with the band since 2003.
Urbandub is the first indie band who has released albums nationwide thru EMI’s help. EMI also featured Urbandub with the unique and not to mention—heaviest compilation of Pinoy rock entitled FULL VOLUME with a remake of Sade’s No Ordinary Love. Urbandub is gaining more recognition around the nation like never before, and is garnering the attention of fans throughout Southeast Asia with a recent tour in Singapore.
I see your face all tired & weary
From battles fought, lost & won.
You take your chances
Fuck the consequence
Dive right in with no regrets
THERE’S NO POINT TO KEEP YOUR HEAD FACE DOWN
WHEN ALL WE SEE AND KNOW AND FEEL IS TEMPORARY
SPREAD YOUR ARMS AND KEEP YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH
GOOD THINGS ARE BETTER TAKEN IN
THE LESS YOU NOTICE.
Witness to a city that never sleeps
Where sins are made then buried
Doesn’t matter how deep or hidden
It’s always, always there.
Hold back the tears, there’s little reprieve
If you show you are weak
You’re accepting defeat
Pick up the pieces and dust yourself off
Then banner away.
Heaven won’t wait
So don’t hold back
Don’t waste another minute
You carry all the weight
‘Coz you think you got no worth
I’ll be happy come the moment you’ve guessed it all.
This is your call to arms
So take in all you desire
Heaven won’t wait so don’t hold back
Now take it all.
