Santigold - Outside The War Lyrics




The striker's on the take
All he sees, the throne, seize the bone
That child is born again
Throw it away, they throw it away
I tried to warn, say, I tried to warn, say
We're going to war if you throw it away
I tried to warn, say, you'll bring it home
Say you'll bring it home again

And we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away
And we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away

Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Don't bring it home

This dike is 'bout to break
And the sea is flowing, I see it coming
That fright is moving in
Hold it at bay, I hold it at bay
I tried it on today, was like I was born again
To the core, cold as the day
I tried to warn, say you'll bring it home
Bring it home again

Now we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away
Now we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away

Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Don't bring it home

I tried to warn
Don't want to see it come in
Then there won't be anything

Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Don't bring it home
Outside the war
Outside the war
See you're a window
Outside the war
It blows through the window
Outside the war
See you're a window
Don't bring it home

Now we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away
(Outside the war)
Now we gonna waste away
We gon' waste away
We gon' waste away

Outside the war
Outside the war
Not anymore
Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Outside the war
Not anymore
Outside the war
Outside the war

    Santigold
    Who I Tought You Were
    Big Boss Big Time Business
    Walking In A Circle
    Rendezvous Girl
    Before The Fire
    All I Got
    Outside The War
    Run The RacEs

  4. Alex Trujillo

    I can totally see this playing in the background for Cersei.

  5. Alex C.

    This song is pretty incredible. The lyrics are fantastic, and Santigold's vocal delivery makes for a chilling listen. The beat at the end of the song is a awesome touch, love it.

  6. Mr. Sausage Fest

    I love you, Santi. Marry me, please. Or at least let me marry your music....or just this song.

  12. Kira Howard

    Omg the guitar is going insane! #IloveMackonen brought me here

  13. InfoCrack

    Santigold, your music is original. I am stoked I found you. I was literally taking a selfie when your song "I can't get enough of myself" came on. The irony was too perfect. So I watched some of your videos. It's been like an hour and I am a Santigold fan. Hell yes, yes please and more please! ILLEST

    I am curious if you were ever influenced by (or a fan of) Siouxie Sioux (only one of the greatest female artist/vocalist/musician of our time from Siouxie and the Banshees)?

    Peter Szaraz

    She definitely was influenced by Siouxsie and the banshees! Specifically their song red light. Check out 'my superman' by santigold.

  14. MusicLatte

    This is better than 99.9% of any mainstream music currently killing our ears and taste!

  15. Itzia Fuentes

    Can't wait see you in Ft Lauderdale Fl

  25. MonsterHunterMalek

    One of my favorites on the new album. We are truly lucky to have an artist like Santigold on this planet. I don't know where I would be without her music :)

    InfoCrack

    +MonsterHunterMalekSo stoked music like this is (still) being made. Original artist! i LOVE her.

  26. Catherine Chase

    This song is infectiously addictive and so beautiful. It's going to be a hit at halloween parties with its ghost like ethereal vocalizations and juicy drum and bass. It's so spooky and and dark and the instrumentals make me feel like I'm wandering around in some unknown, foreboding and dangerous place. Had to play it twice it was so good. Thank you for making such hauntingly beautiful melodies. This may be my new top favorite song since Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus.

  27. Denise bxzr

    I'm thir....thirsty for more!

  28. W. Ward
