about

BUSTIN DOWN THE DOOR
This is a conversation I am having with myself trying to shake off old habits, fire up and have a go.
We all get complacent at times and lie to ourselves about who we really are vs who we want to be. I am no different.
Don't pretend you are happy when you're not. Or don't pretend you are killing it when you are struggling.
Being true to yourself, working on your weaknesses & playing to your strengths are the ideas behind this song.

My good friend Sam Perry is the only "feature" on the whole record. In the past, I used to try and hit up big names to feature on songs to help boost my profile which was a tedious process. This time I thought fuck em, I'll do it myself with like-minded passionate artists.

I had the idea for this track for a long time and had American Producer Kustom compose the original track. I knew it was the perfect track for Sam Perry & his pommie accent & sent it over to him. He killed it straight off the bat. My producer Ryan Enright, my manager Matty Woo & I spent a day in the studio adding bits & pieces to the track like the reggae guitars & baseline which took it to a whole new level.

The song encompasses a lot of what I stand for both in subject matter & sonically. Another new favourite, love performing this live especially when the crowd "go fuckin mental" when the beat drops.

lyrics

VERSE 1 (KID MAC)
WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN BOTTLING UP?
IS IT A SILENT PAIN YOU SUFFER IN DISGUISE LIKE A BLUFF?
SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU BEEN GOING TO HARD
YOU'RE LOOKING WEATHERED AND ROUGH
FORGOT THE ONES THAT YOU LOVE
DOWN & OUT OR TIME TO GET YOUR DRINK ON
IS THE SILVER LINING IN YOUR MIND ENOUGH TO PUSH ON
KEEP FIGHTING DEMONS DEEP WITHIN
TRY OPEN YOUR MIND AND LET THE FREEDOM IN
AND SINGING CEASE LYING, THE TRUTH'S NOT THE ENEMY
IT NEEDS TIME, TO FIND ITS OWN REMEDY
AND PLEASE TRY TO RELEASE A BETTER ME
BURRIED DEEP INSIDE OF ME
THAT'S SCREAMING AND SPIRALLING DOWN

PRE-CHORUS:
ALL IN ALL YOUR JUST ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL
EVERYTHING YOU SAID IT NEVER MATTERED AT ALL
SO RISE UP, RISE UP
BUSTIN’ DOWN THE DOOR

(LET’S GET FUCKING MENTAL)

CHORUS
FIRE FIRE
BURNING INSIDE YOUR SOUL
YOU GOTTA FREE YOUR MIND FROM THE ENEMY
LET YOURSELF LOSE CONTROL

LIAR LIAR
TIME TO BUST DOWN THE DOOR
YOU GOTTA STAND UP DANCE WITH THE DEVIL AND
SLOWLY BREAK DOWN THE WALLS

VERSE 2 (SAM PERRY)
WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN BOTTLING UP?
IS IT A WORLD OF PAIN INSIDE YOUR EYES JUST RUNNING AMOK?
YOU LOST YOU’RE MIND ARE YOU BLOWING A TOP?
YOU LOOK SO FRIGHTENED AND LOST
WHEN YOU CORRODE AND ERUPT
YOU GOING MAD OR JUST IN NEED OF A DRINK?
IS THAT SECRET LIFE INSIDE YOUR MIND BEGINNING TO WIN?
KEEP FIGHTING NEGATIVITY
TRY CLOSING YOUR EYES AND SING IT BACK TO ME
AND SINGING CEASE FIRE, CAUSE THE BEATS NOT THE ENEMY
IT NEEDS FIRE- TO BREATH, SO JUST LET IT BE
AND GIVE LIFE TO THE RHYTHM N MELODY
THRIVING INSIDE OF ME
AND DRIVING SO STEADILY ON

PRE-CHORUS:

CHORUS

OUTRO
FIRE FIRE
LIAR LIAR
