Bury Our Friends lyrics:

Today I am stitched, I am sewn
Patch me up, I’ve got want in my bones
Like some doll you thought you could throw away
I found my legs

Ready to climb out from under concrete
Only I get to be sickened by me
My body a smudge
Can’t make out the details
Want to start over and come into being

Exhume our idols and bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in
We’re sick with worry
These nerve less days
We live on dread in our own gilded age

This dark world is precious to me
My scars make me breathe in so deep
My body has no need for sleep
This time around

Ready to find fragments of stillness
Only I get to be punished by me
Your voice is a crumb, it leads me from the wildness
Wanna start over, forget everything

Exhume our idols and bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in
We’re sick with worry
These nerve less days
We live on dread in our own gilded age

Make me a headline
I wanna be that bold
Make me a spotlight
So I can see the gold

Make me a headline
I wanna feel that bold
Make me a spotlight
So I can see the gold

Exhume our idols, bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in
We’re sick with worry
These nerve less days
We live on dread in our own gilded age

We speak in circles
We dance in code
Untame and hungry
On fire in the cold
Exhume our idols and bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in

Sleater-Kinney official bio:

Sleater-Kinney’s The Center Won’t Hold is the first new album from the celebrated band since their 2015 album, No Cities To Love, available August 16 on Mom + Pop. After years of legendary collaboration, rock’n’roll giants Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vocals) and Corin Tucker (guitar/vocals) sound bigger and bolder than ever. The new album was produced by Annie Clark (St. Vincent), and hailed by The Fader as “one of the most furious, dynamic records of their career.” The New York Times called them “one of rock’s most enduring and respected acts” and Rolling Stone gave the record 4 stars and raved, “one of America’s greatest bands does battle with modern apathy on thrilling LP.”

Sleater-Kinney set a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Now, at the height of their formidable powers, the feminist icons continue to challenge themselves, break all the rules and push boundaries. This new creative chapter in the acclaimed band’s musical journey is poised to win over both longtime admirers and new fans alike.
