God Save the Foolish Kings

Artist: House of Heroes

Album: Suburba

I recommend House of Heroes’ latest album Suburba to…anyone who likes music. Basically, the album would be what would  happen if broadway and alternative music got married.

“God Save the Foolish Kings” is the pinnacle of Suburba, a teen gang fight epic performed with alternating dynamics, soaring vocals, and catchy beats. Stephanie Smith‘s guest vocals only add to the showiness and provide a great contrast with Tim Skipper’s solid voice.

You can listen to the song on the band’s Myspace by clicking right here! Or watch the music video on their website here.

Oh, and psst! The song is free on iTunes right now!

Midnight,
At the school
‘Hind the bleachers
There’s gonna be a rumble
The lions and the kings
And my baby, she cries
In her bed and she worries
And my baby, she prays
God save the kings!

Promise me you won’t do anything crazy
I promise you I won’t do anyting, baby
Promise me
I promise you nothing!

We’re outcasts only cuz we choose to dream
We’re princes who’d rather dine with thieves
We’re honest only cuz the truth, it cannot hide
God save us, the foolish kings

Midnight,
At the school
Behind the bleachers [hey baby, lets go lets go]
There’s gonna be a rumble
But the cops won’t be notified [whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa]
So the lions bear their arms
But the kings gonna break the hearts of their babies tonight

We’re desprate only cuz we’ve none to lose
We’re lions missing half our teeth
We’re honest only cuz the truth, it cannot hide
God save us, the foolish kings
God save us, the foolish kings

And we fight cuz
We’d rather break our bones
Than brave this loneliness
We draw blood cuz
We’re just trying to draw out some significance

But I met God on the street tonight
And he said,
“Choose your battles wisely
Or you’ll never find Me”

Promise me you won’t do anything crazy
Promise me
I promise you
I promise you one thing!

We’re devils try’n to earn our angels wings
We stumble at every turn indeed
We’re desperate chasing down the love to just survive
God save us, the foolish kings [promise me you won’t do anything crazy]
God save us, the foolish kings [promise me, promise me]
God save us,
God save us, the foolish kings!
