There are too many waiting for our planet to burn There are few many fighting for what is left to save Are we here for Extinction Are we here for Rebellion Ice caps are melting and seasons are fading while sacred famelic creatures are lost in the cities but we're cought up, taken and distracted we fail to see Are we here for Extinction Are we here for Rebellion Are we here for Extinction We are here for Rebellion Suggestions on how to live happy and free are illusions of knowing while we dive in seas of whispers and shadows that hide what is true but be careful the person you cannot lie to is you Is you, is you, is you, is you We are not defined by name We are not defined by race We are not defined by wealth We are not defined by faith We are not defined by name We are not defined by race We are not defined by wealth We are not defined by faith We are not defined by name We are not defined by race We are not defined by wealth We are not defined by faith Are we here for Extinction Are we here for Rebellion Are we here for Extinction We are here for Rebellion

I tell you once and I tell you twice They keep repeating far too many lies But now it’s clear, for one too many The world is filtered right before our eyes Well I ask you what do you think of war Can it be triggered by a pencil draw cos when’s too late, for one too many it will become a powerful ammo One too many all the lives we’ve been deprived One too many all the wars that never die One too many all the lies that we’ve been told and all of this is more than we can hold Feels like I’m talking to a brick wall No hope, I’m trapped, I’m in a death row For when’s too late for one too many We’ll all be gone faster than the light We give you an inch and you take a mile your promises are lies in suit and tie in fact you’ve just said one too many Time is running out don’t you realise? One too many all the lives we’ve been deprived One too many all the wars that never die One too many all the lies that we’ve been told and all of this is more than we can hold Oh I’ll tell you straight now you can’t hide Eyes open now we read between the lines Words in the wind are, ONE TOO MANY Now it’s clear you’re rotten from inside!!! One too many all the lives we’ve been deprived One too many all the wars that never die One too many all the lies that we’ve been told and all of this is more than we can hold One too many all the lives we’ve been deprived One too many all the wars that never die One too many all the lies that we’ve been told and all of this is more than we can hold

o sono l'uomo nero, demone e nocchiero in una palude infernale Io causa di questo male, tradisco, mi pento Uomini donne e bambini, salite vi guidero' Gettate I corpi al mare e al vento, lasciateli morire Io fiero eroe di questa scena supero le acque, coraggioso Io fiamma che combatte il male assicuro, al sicuro Uomini donne e bambini, calmate - vi salvero' Gettate I corpi al mare e al vento, lasciateli morire Gettate I corpi al mare e al vento, lasciateli morire Ma chi fa, ma che, chi c'e qui che fa', ma chi e' che fa mafia Ma chi fa, ma che, chi c'e qui che fa', ma chi e' che fa mafia Io creo eroi e infamita' Vengo poi mostrata a dosi e burattinata Io sono neanche mezza verita' Uomini donne e bambini, sveglate – vi ingannero' Gettate I corpi al mare e al vento, lasciateli morire Gettate I corpi al mare e al vento, lasciateli morire Ma chi fa, ma che, chi c'e qui che fa', ma chi e' che fa mafia Ma chi fa, ma che, chi c'e qui che fa', ma chi e' che fa mafia Ma chi fa, ma che, chi c'e qui che fa', ma chi e' che fa mafia

Everyone can change their life at once and everyone deserves a second chance no need to explain the injection of trust, adrenaline rush, rebirth is a must When you decide to leave your troubled past behind, jumpin' in blind, future you'll find When where you live, has got nothing to offer or give, be brave and leave and start to breathe Everyone can change their life at once and everyone deserves a second chance no need to explain the injection of trust, adrenaline rush, rebirth is a must Trapped in a cage, you're feeling like there is no escape. Nowhere tu run, is here where i'll die? Finding the key is easier than you think it should be, find it inside, feeling alive and you realise Staring at the sun is now she will ever know, if she crosses all the borders what will be her home, excited of adventures her life did not give she should be rounding and changing around the way she wants to live. Everyone can change their life at once and everyone deserves a second chance no need to explain the injection of trust, adrenaline rush, rebirth is a must

Where is London and all its people going to end kick them out keep pushing them away and all it’s character and local businesses and music venues kick them all out What is London going to be and offer our communities aside from bigger chains and larger hotels and even grater malls and giant ghost houses Stop London gentrified Our souls still alive We see under your disguise Money money money business quick are you in or are you out? I say kick them all out we’re all just part of it it's cool i'll hang in it it's cheap i'll go for it accepting all is happening Richer richer richer you’re not rich enough to live where you were born refining all is worn it's ten quid for coffee and cake tasting tyres just for the sake feeding us all that's mistake despite what's at stake Stop London gentrified Our souls still alive We see under your disguise We’re more and more all wanting more and getting poorer than we’ve been before give me more time London gentrified your heart has minutes quantified more more more wanting more wanting more Stop London gentrified Our souls still alive We see under your disguise

Thrown in a foreign land forced to take his hand not old enough to make a choice staring at a dead end Once where she belonged her life was nicely framed calling you 'hey friend' doesn't know your name Just begging with paper cup it's upon her fallen a trap Visible war invisible borders closer than ever unknowable presences some blind, some looking for a cure that keeps the horizon still Don't look down don't judge it don't hide it don't leave it visible war, invisible borders just at our doorstep All her thoughts are questions reminds herself her name those haunting memories got myself to blame searching for a place to finally call home hope that never leaves her gets stronger as she roams Just begging with paper cup it's upon her fallen a trap Visible war invisible borders closer than ever unknowable presences some blind, some looking for a cure that keeps the horizon still Don't look down don't judge it don't hide it don't leave it visible war, invisible borders just at our doorstep Keep the horizon still Keep the horizon still Keep the horizon still Keep the horizon still Visible war invisible borders closer than ever unknowable presences some blind, some looking for a cure that keeps the horizon still Don't look down don't judge it don't hide it don't leave it visible war, invisible borders just at our doorstep

Shouting don’t you have some money to go buy your self some spaghetti why the accusation what the hell do you want from me Do you think I’m stupid and I didn’t see you taking what I bought from that Deli I didn’t hear or see a thing And now you’re really boring me I really don’t give a ssh....! So run run run away cos if I reach you and catch you you’ll be sorry of what you’ve done here run run run away cos if I reach you and grab you I will show you what I’ll do here run run run away cos if I reach you and catch you You’ll be sorry of what you’ve done here I don’t need no words to tell you how I feel, capisc?

So run run run away cos if I reach you and catch you you’ll be sorry of what you’ve done here run run run away cos if I reach you and grab you I will show you what I’ll do here run run run away cos if I reach you and catch you You’ll be sorry of what you’ve done here I don’t need no words to tell you how I feel, capisc?

about

Lies in Suit and Tie’s penchant for catchy and danceable numbers is evident just as much as its commitment to tackle socio-political and environmental issues. This seemingly contradictory statement is central to the ethos of the collective. The mainstream media filtering the truth on immigration, climate change, gentrification and Brexit are some of the topics explored within the lyrics.
From a stylistic viewpoint, the album reflects the blend of influences each and every member brings in. During the course of the 8 tracks you will hear hints of Balkan and Afro-beat, southern Italian rhythms, Rock and Ska alike.
The album opens with the single “Extinction Rebellion” and continues with “One Too Many”, a fast, brass-heavy track with an unmistakable Balkan flavour.
“Ma Chi” follows suit and denounces the human trafficking business ran by the mafia in Italy. It is one of only 2 songs written in Italian and features a dense strings arrangement, over-driven guitar and trumpet. Nestled among many fast-paced and high-energy numbers, “Horizon” is the only ballad to appear on the album. It features predominantly acoustic instruments such as double bass, acoustic guitar and Bouzuki.
