Low Hummer – Take Arms

It’s been a while since a support act actually grabbed me enough for me to 1) think ‘I definitely want to download their music when I get home’ and 2) actually remember to do it. Well, Low Hummer definitely made enough of an impression for me to manage two out of two. All their songs are good but this one particularly appealed to me (“Are you a Northerner Pretending to be Southern?” -LOL, I guess I am, but what do you want me to do about it? Take Arms, you say? Erm…. not sure about that TBH, but I like your song.)

Take Arms
Low Hummer

For all the northerners pretending to be southern,
TAKE ARMS!
All the business class still living with your mothers,
TAKE ARMS!
All the billionaires that don’t believe in sharing,
TAKE ARMS!
Now all the single parents scrounge to make a living,
TAKE ARMS!

I don’t want us to be friends
I just want a little piece of mind
You always said we’re too young to be loved,
Well now I’m too old to judge,
You seem to think we’ll jump when you jump,
My father said enough is enough,
Instead we’ll all get drunk til we drop,
Escape the bores of the job,
Our way of saying
I won’t take it, I won’t take it, I won’t take it, I won’t take it

Do you think there’s Southerners who wish that they were Northern?
Cos we’re all weekend zombies drinking through the boredom
Is this the modern age that we all live in?
TAKE ARMS! TAKE ARMS!

I don’t want you to hate me
I just want a little piece of mind
You always said we’re too young to be loved,
Well now it looks like death from above
You seem to think we’ll jump when you jump,
My sister said enough is enough,
Instead we’ll all get drunk til we drop,
Escape the bores of the job,
Our way of saying
I won’t take it,
I won’t take it,
I won’t take it,
I won’t take it.
