about

The Great Battle is SevenCollar T-Shirt’s third follow up to their AIM award nominated sophomore album Drones. Unlike their previous album, The Great Battle displays a heavier, moodier and darker effort. The much awaited album is being hailed by music critics and music fans alike as one of the best efforts in the Malaysian English music scene.

Track Name: Tet Offensive
A new life, I’m on the news
Stuck in every word that I can find, in everything but truth
It’s useless, I’m not amused
Faking every photographic smile, it’s all that I can turn into
Ordinary feeling
A new life, I’m in the mood
Lost in an involuntary crash, a moment I’ve abused
It’s useless, I am not you
Changing every word that I’ve denied, it’s all that I can turn into
Ordinary feeling
“I can teach you how to turn your touch into perfection,
Choose love”
Track Name: Lucky You
Hello there, it’s been a while
I’m staring at this photograph, steady eyes, silent lies, distant…
I know you’re on your own
Is there science in this streak of losing?
Lucky you, always confused and perfect
Taking a stand, forget who asked
“Are you listening?”
I know you’re on your own
Is there science in this streak of losing?
I see you there, I see you everywhere, drifting
I have a heart, but forget you knew that
Just breathe in and pretend

Every star, have been called back to work it out
Before we start, I’ve been programmed to break apart
To mend your heart?
Your words are poison

I’ll drown every night,
In every moment that you could never hide, before I
Drown, drown every night
In every moment that you could never hide, before I
Work it out, I’m worded out
Words are poison
Your words are poison
Track Name: Wild Child (Here For You)
Losing all my tunes, I can’t get over how beautiful
You and me now, I’m on your side, you’re right
I’ll try to find you through love, I’ll try
Fools and all their rules, I can’t get over how they hurt you
You and me and all our sins will forever hold true
I’ll try to find you through love, I’ll try

Float away son, I’m here for you, float away
I’ll try to find you love, I’ll try
You will turn their words and find your perfection
You will turn their words and talk to the stars
Tonight I’ll be your one and only saviour
Track Name: Fragile
I will never let you die, dear
And tonight I’ll be close by
I will never leave you hungry
For the crimes of this wasted love
The news should never leave you worried
You’re innocent like a work of art
Truth should never be allowed to live out loud
It will break us apart
In time
I will find the best in me
And I will find the strength to be immune
If only I could
I know you’re fragile
I will never let u die, will never let you try
Track Name: Fibres
Moonlight,
Sing loud for everyone,
Sing loud for revolution,
I’ll remember…
Shine down,
For all the things I’ve done,
For all these words unspoken,
I’ll remember…

Grieving bodies, threw you down
Who are you fighting for?

Shout now,
Before your words are drowned,
Before your soul stars bleeding dry,
I’ll remember…
Track Name: The Foreigner
The last time that I spoke to her
She wouldn’t let her guard down,
I’ll be yours if you stay mine
It’s the last thing that I wanted
To break your heart to make you cry
I’ll be in the shadows shedding light

I am now a stranger, a foreigner
I am now a stranger, a freedom fighter in a war of words
There’s nothing new with everyone, there’s nothing new for us
So dry your tears…

The last time that I spoke to her
She would just let a tired sigh
“I’m just trying to make things right”
Just forget what you’ve ever heard
I know your lies I’ve seen your worst
So here I am pretending I’m alive

I am now a stranger, a foreigner
I am now a stranger, a freedom fighter in a war of words
There’s nothing new with everyone, there’s nothing new for us
So dry your tears…

There’s nothing new with everyone, there’s nothing new for us
There’s nothing you could ever have done to make me feel any worse
There’s nothing new with everyone, there’s nothing new for us
So dry your tears…

The last time that I spoke to her
We made it clear that nothing’s ever after
Nothing
Track Name: December
So long, we’re leaving December
I’ve learned to breathe underwater
What’s that? Forgiveness?
I have given enough
Slow down, it’s been years since the panic
I’ve twisted a vein to keep the toxins in
What’s next? Reasons?
I have given you mine
I have given you more than your birthright ever
I have given you up…

I promise that we’ll fight again in the new year
Lights out as we return to our darkest fears
So what now? Confusion?
I can’t live in the past
I have given you more than your birthright ever
I have given you up…

I'll fall back, and catch my breath
Your precious perfect verse, stopped making sense
Forget everything, forget how I made you bleed

I’m nervous and wasted
Stop there, I’m naked
I have given your love to another hand
I have given you up

Enough of this faking
Stop and I’ll let you leave
Oh precious virgins, outside every night
I feel fine
Track Name: A Dissappearing Act
I need a change in my sentence
I need a photographic memory
I want nothing but to disappear
Turn off the lights, good night
I knew you’d come by, to turn on a new life
I knew you’d come, burning bridges but not to fight

I’ll come clean to everyone
A complaint in every single line
I want nothing but to bleed right through this
Turn off the lights, goodbye
I’ll see you in time, to turn on a new life
I knew you’d turn towards your maker to give you love

Turn on a new life, I knew you’d come by to put on a new disguise
I knew you’d turn towards your maker to give you love

Turn off the lights, I wish you would stay a while
Wish you would stay a while…
Track Name: Exiled
I’ve been wanting to prove
That time takes her time out on you
A life redefined, so if you must run
Trust have been wasted and used
I’m in the strangest of moods
Come withered ones, with you I must fight

I’ll be out of line tonight
I’ll bleed out my words, desires
Alone and outnumbered I’m all that I need in this war

To meet your eyes
To know I’m alive
Alone
Track Name: Lights
Lights…
On who you must find,
I’ll remember you
Pride…
You’ve lost this fight,
This soulless revolution in my head
You’ve witnessed all
It’s only evolution, I forgot
Lights…
On what we’ve done,
I’ll remember you
Lights…
On those who tried,
I’ll remember to remember
Alive...
I’m alive,
Love is who you are

So cry if you wanted to cry tonight,
Your souls are losing hours
So cry if you wanted to cry,
Surprised that you’ve wasted your life
