Weapon - Bastille vs. Angel Haze vs. F*U*G*Z vs. Braque



The Experience: Pulling Angel Haze, British F*U*G*Z and Braque into a single song, Bastille fuses a Weapon, a song about making your voice count in the sinking society all around us. "This is me, speaking up, and your voice is a weapon."
Official Video: Waiting

The meaning of Weapon is realizing your say matters, and then using your voice. The lyrics has 4 steps:
1. The song says "society's all a disease." Our world is sick. 
2. Now the lyrics spin back on us: "No more falling to pressure, No more failing acceptance." We can't ignore the problem, and fitting in under 'pressure' or for 'acceptance' is a cop out. 
3. Choose a cause and speak out against crowds of society: "Choose your voice and etch that on your soul, Make them heard when crowds drown out your cold." Speak and bring your ideals into society. Don't make society push its anti-idealism into you.
4. "Your voice is a weapon, so do with it what you can."  Realize the power of convincing others. Do all you can. 

Ask yourself: When was the last time you spoke out for something? When was the last time you questioned society's norms?


LYRICS:
[Angel Haze:]
This is vocal detection
Front line open intellection
Outlining all his imperfections
This is his f-cking confession
Right now you cause that what
Screaming you want it and more
Sit down ambassador reference
Right now your voice is a weapon
Wake up to stars in the sky
Watch light revolve with your mind
Watch all the storms rising
And put all your palms in the sky
No more falling to pressure
No more failing acceptance
Throw all your hells towards the heavens
Cuz your voice is a weapon

[Dan:]
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms

[Angel Haze:]
We dance with the devils
And make your halos the color of sinner’s portraits
And smothering it means everything’s lovely again
Nothing’s quite as it seems
Society’s all a disease
Kill all your fear in your sleep
Cuz everything’s formed in a dream
Breathe in insanity’s grip
Words from insanity’s lips
Falling from sanity’s cliff
Watching your vanity slip
No more falling to pressure
No more failing acceptance
Throw all your hells towards the heavens
Cuz your voice is a weapon

[Dan:]
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms

[Angel Haze:]
Pressure that deepen the cut
When will the evil erupt?
Volcanic fever is lost
That sh-t will even it out
Pressure is feeding the dust
Vengeance is me speaking up
This is me speaking up

[Dan:]
And your voice is a weapon
This is vocal confession
And it’s shooting you down, down, down
And your voice is a weapon
This is vocal confession
And we’re shooting you down, down, down
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
And your voice is a weapon
And we’ll do with it what we can
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms again
I’ll fall into your arms

[F*U*G*Z/Braque:]
Choose your voice and etch that on your soul
Make them heard when crowds drown out your cold
Leave behind your questions, silent thoughts, and mentions
The wake has so never falter
Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
Leave behind your questions, silent thoughts, and mentions
Your voice is a weapon
So do with it what you can
