New Blood - Bloc Party

I've been living too long in the tundra
I've been living too long at sea
And all my loved ones
Forgot about me
So I tame the urge to fight back
Sounding off to who I see
I used to be a renegade
But now I'm just me

With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

They said they're going to teach me a lesson
They wanna show me how to kneel
I used to be a wild one
But now I'm done
When I brought you an offering of honey
They said you needed blood
And in that moment
I made my choice

Hear my prayer and clear the corners
Let this blood wash away all the sins of all the fathers
Guide my hand and on my honour
I will keep your words alive, I will keep you in my heart

With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

(I dare you, I dare you, I dare you)
(To rise)
(I dare you, I dare you, I dare you)
(To rise)
