Hi! Thanks for accepting. This is my first debate here and I'm looking forward to it. For round one, I chose "The Only Exception" by Paramore.

{Verse 1}
When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it
And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist

But darlin'

{Chorus}
You are the only exception!
You are the only exception!
You are the only exception!
You are the only exception!

{Verse 2}
Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we've got to find other ways
To make it alone
Or keep a straight face
And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm content
With loneliness
Because none of it was ever worth the risk, well

{Chorus}
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception

{Instrumental and Drums}

{Bridge}
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't
Let go of what's in front of me here
I know you're leaving in the morning, when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream
Ooh Ooh...

{Chorus}
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
[X2]

And I'm on my way to believing
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing

I choose "Waving Flag" by K'naan. And I'll even include a video:


LYRICS:

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a Wavin' Flag.

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a Wavin' Flag.
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back.

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome.
But violent prone, poor people zone.
But it's my home, all I have known.
Where I got grown, streets we would roam.

But out of the darkness, I came the farthest.
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from those streets, it can be bleak
Except no defeat, surrender, retreat.

So we struggling, fighting to eat,
and we're wondering when we'll be free.
So we patiently wait for that fateful day,
it's not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a Wavin' Flag.
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back.

So many wars settling scores,
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor.
I heard them say, love is the way.
Love is the answer, that's what they say.

But look how they treat us, make us believers.
We fight their battles, then they deceive us.
Try to control us, they couldn't hold us.
'Cause we just move forward like Buffalo soldiers!

But we struggling, fighting to eat.
And we wondering, when we'll be free.
So we patiently wait for that fateful day
It's not far away but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger.
They'll call me freedom, just like a Wavin' Flag.
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

(Oh Oh Oh Oh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Oh Oh Oh Oh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Oh Oh Oh Oh)
And we all will be singing it
(Oh Oh Oh Oh)

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag


By the way, this song is about Somalia.

My next choice: A-Team by Ed Sheeran.

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light's gone, day's end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cause we're just under the upper hand
Go mad for a couple grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped glove, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank note
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cause we're just under the upper hand
Go mad for a couple grams
And she don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel who die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
They scream
The worst things in life come free to us
'Cause we're all under the upper hand
Go mad for a couple grams
And we don't want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
For angels to fly, to fly, to fly
Or angels to die

And, not to be out-done, here is a video!

I choose "Remember the Empire" by House of Heroes. Which, by the way, I think is shockingly similar to the American Revolution.



Here they threaten with murder and bribe us with peace.
Here they treat us like slaves and convince us we're free.
There's no turning back once enough is enough,
We can't, but we must, so

Stand, stand up!
What choice have they given us?
Oh stand, stand up!
Fight with us, and fight for love!
Remember the empire, remember your home.
Remember the empire,
Tear the king from the throne!

Fight for the life that our children should have,
Fight for every freedom that we never had,
There's no turning back all the bridges are burned,
Our peace must be earned, so

Stand, stand up!
What choice have they given us?
Oh stand, stand up!
Fight with us, and fight for love!
Remember the empire, remember your home.
Remember the empire,
Tear the king from the throne!

We wrote it down in blood, in blood.
We gave our lives for love, for love.

Stand, stand up!
What choice have they given us?
Stand, stand up!
Fight with us, fight for love!
Remember the empire!
Tear the king from the throne!

Not sure how correct these lyrics are, I got them from:

For this final round, my choice is Imagine Dragons' "Demons."

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood's run stale

I want to hide the truth
I want to shelter you
But with the beast inside
There's nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Curtain's call
Is the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don't want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't want to hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

I would like to thank my opponent for a fun debate, and I would like to take this opportunity to ask voters to please vote for me! Thank you all!

This is another one by K'naan, but it features Bono. It's called "Bulletproof Pride". I hope you like it.

I've been running out of my 70 Excuses.
There comes a point when patience
Can't take all these abuses.
Now my reserves are empty.
I'm feeling kind of low.
Because when do you fight for someone?
And when do you let them go?
The other day I thought I saw you on a magazine,
Your stubborn nose pretending to belong to the machine.

I've been waiting for you to come to your senses.
Holding up your heavy heart, down there in the trenches.
You don't have to carry that weight all by yourself,
Even you the mercenary could use a little help.
You've got your gun, your Bulletproof Pride.
You never run, but you sure know how to hide.

My friend said he had seen you at a movie theater.
You looked just you had always,
Didn't ask about me either.
I won't say life ends without you,
But you're the only answer.
You got me like a thief, you got me with my hands up.
The other day I thought I saw you on a magazine,
Your stubborn nose pretending to belong to the machine.

I've been waiting for you to come to your senses.
Holding up your heavy heart, down there in the trenches.
You don't have to carry that weight all by yourself,
Even you the mercenary could use a little help.
You've got your gun, your Bulletproof Pride.
You never run, but you sure know how to hide.

Your wish is falling before you,
the stars are frustrating.
You're always [into] waiting, love

Yeah, there's something wrong.
Yeah, be safe now.
There's a faith in my heart,
Going days won't stop.
When I feel that I'm still
In the beat of your soul,
When you talk
When you write
When you weave and you flow
And you leave and you stay,
Only waiting is left.
Now I'm kneeling around in the cold.

I've been waiting for you to come to your senses.
Holding up your heavy heart, down there in the trenches.
You don't have to carry that weight all by yourself,
Even you the mercenary could use a little help.
You've got your gun, your Bulletproof Pride.
You never run, but you sure know how to hide.

This was indeed a fun debate. Please vote for me! Thank you!
