The Radio Dept. Share new song “We Got Game”

The Radio Dept. Share "We Got Game", off their forthcoming relese 'Running Out Of Love' LP

Running Out Of Love, the forthcoming release from Swedish band Radio. Dept, has been described by the band as an album about life in Sweden in 2016 moving in the wrong direction: politically, intellectually, morally. It’s about the impatience that turns into anger, hate and ultimately withdrawal and apathy when love for the world and our existence begins to falter. The issues addressed throughout the band’s fourth LP, out October 21st via Labrador.

“We Got Game” (Lyrics)

There’s a choice to be made
We never used to blindly disobey
But now, make some noise
Never fade
Retrace the steps of millions before us
What is fair to get ahead?
It’s not an even game if you can’t bid
They don’t care
Never did
If we want it we will have to take it from the overfed

We got game
And we were put to shame
Acting kind
So we came to speak our minds
And what else?
What else?
What else could we do?

You keep talking middle ground
So sick of hearing about that middle ground
This is it, you can’t go ’round
There’s just no other middle to be found
Like with this bunch of racist loons
The kind of guys you wouldn’t like to spoon
If in power
One whisky sour
And everyone I love would be jailed within the hour

We got game
And we were put to shame
Acting kind
So we have changed our minds
And now what?
Now what?
Now what will they do?
Is it true?
Laser beam
Swat team
Not a dream

I believe Paris Grey
Singing “the sun will chase the clouds away”
I believe what she say
Because I want and have to believe that way

Is it true?
Yes it’s true
It is true
Mind you
It’s true
