The music just calls you, the beat is straight, pomp and colour, the voices blend to the core and if you realised, they didn't mince their words.
"I'll lay you down like an edge controller. I wanna love you all over. Wanna be the gun to your soldier. Show you, I'm loyal eh eh,” the song’s lyrics read in part.
