BEST NEW TRACKS: NEW POLITICS "EVERYWHERE I GO (KINGS AND QUEENS)"

9/5/14
New Politics - Everywhere I Go

If you happened to arrive early at one of the shows on that Paramore-Fall Out Boy tour that just wrapped, you were treated to the musical stylings of New Politics and their cool new songs like "Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)."

 

At the risk of alienating some of our readers before they give this cut a chance, this is one of the best pop punk songs I've ever heard. The music and energy in the song peak at a chorus that's near perfection. If you're looking for a new "BOUT TO DO THIS SH*T BIG" anthem, here ya go. "Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)" is the first single off the band's forthcoming album, of which no details are currently known. If you can listen to this song without its gigantic hooks burrowing their way inside your mind, then you're stronger than I am.

 

NEW POLITICS "EVERYWHERE I GO (KINGS AND QUEENS)"

In case you couldn't hear what those pristine vocals were singing, we've got the lyrics to New Politics "Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens)" for ya:

downtown hopping fences
i smashed a window on a Lexus
now 5-0's on my tail, but they movin' like a snail 
i got some shit to sell 
but everybody's gotta get by
i got holes in my pockets
everybody wants to stay high 
so you know i got it, if you want it

this one's for everyone that said i'm nothing
this one's for my friends that don't give a fuck
so if you don't give a fuck sing:

everywhere i go, i'm higher than united, fly with me
everybody knows, there's no sleep 'till brooklyn, no sleep
we get high, we get by, yet we roll with it 
we've been up, we've been down, we got over it
everywhere we go, we're the kings and queens, and we run this city

i got prior offensives
you know this life it can be hectic
now it might seem like a death wish
being so young and fucking reckless

everybody's gotta get by
i got holes in my pockets
everybody wants to stay high 
so you know i got it, if you want it

this one's for everyone that said i'm nothing
this one's for my friends that don't give a fuck
so if you don't give a fuck sing:

everywhere i go, i'm higher than united fly with me
everybody knows, there's no sleep 'till brooklyn, no sleep
we get high, we get by, yet we roll with it 
we've been up, we've been down, we got over it
everywhere we go, we're the kings and queens, and we run this city

this one's for the accidental lovers
this one's for the one's who are not in love
to my ex, to my mom, to my dad, and the teachers 
my boss, and the cops, oh my god all the preachers 
all the give, and the take, and the take, and the give
now we've taken enough, it's enough so just sing:

everywhere i go, i'm higher than united fly with me
everybody knows, there's no sleep till brooklyn, no sleep
we get high, we get by, yet we roll with it 
we've been up, we've been down, we got over it
everywhere we go, we're the kings and queens, and we run this city

we're the kings and queens and we run this city

Thanks for stopping by Bitcandy, where everywhere we go we're higher than United.
