American Wrestlers share “Amazing Grace”

American Wrestlers share new single "Amazing Grace". The track is off their forthcoming release Goodbye Terrible Youth

Today, American Wrestlers have shared “Amazing Grace.” The single, is the second song shared off their forthcoming release Goodbye Terrible Youth, out 11/4 on Fat Possum. McClure had this to say about the song.

I wrote this song about having faith and having none. Being lonely in the bigger picture. The rewards and perils of Nationalism and religion. It’s about a certain shade of America, but really it’s an aspect of humanity which gets geographically pinned down. It’s about the election and the arbitrary shards we grab from the breaking chaos to glue together an identity. It’s about choosing misery over love as a solution to death.

American Wrestlers have announced some initial dates in support of Goodbye Terrible Youth, with more to come. Don’t miss a chance to catch this powerful band live.

“AMAZING GRACE” LYRICS:

So came the bockscar’s bliss
Left behind another man’s mess
For shame that there’s no other way

Laid up on your own
Where useless stands for suffering and shame
There’s no other way

Where the people sing amazing grace
The people sing amazing grace
The people sing amazing grace

So build up half a mile
I can’t stand the sun in my eyes
They’ll pay
There’s no other way

This favorite gas of mine
I’ll keep on standing with it by my side
We’re the same
There’s no other way

Where the people sing amazing grace

So I waited for the moment to arrive
But the sun came bright across the rooftops
When I wanted the sorrow
Play down true emotion Carolina
The sun came bright across the ( )

There’s no way
There’s no chance
