about

‘We Will Be Heard’ is the first offering from Purpose’s long awaited debut album ‘Where It Starts’.

Engaging and upbeat, this self-produced song captures the free-spirited restlessness of today’s youth from a fresh faced and honest perspective.

Keeping fans tied over with a 3 part mixtape series, Purpose has put his best work to date on what is sure to be an explosive break through debut.

Accompanied by a film clip dropping the same day, the single ‘We Will Be Heard’ is available to purchase from Bandcamp, March 14th.

Digital single features 'We Will Be Heard (Debate Remix)' & exclusive bonus track 'Dont I Know It'.

Track Name: Purpose - We Will Be Heard
Verse 1

At 13 I was twistin up the herb in the Riverside Reserve
Lil punk, teachers spoke but I aint listen to a word
That just made em say ‘the kid’ll never learn’
I picked myself up cause the system doesnt work
Everybody’s stuck living check-to-check
Knee deep in credit debt, just tryna get ahead
Wonderin what it all represents
Extra stressed on the mornin shift, barely slept
We work till 5, party till 3
Then we right back by sun up, how hard could it be?
First ones to come and the last ones to leave
When that Bacardi in reach we make a bar out the beach
Party in the street till the cops come
Who cares if it catch up with us in the long run?
Excuse me if i'm on one, pardon my demeano
But I got a life before it starts to lose its meaning,
And we are

Hook

We are the youth these are our stories,
C’mon and sing it loud, We will be heard
We are the youth these are our stories,
C’mon and sing it loud, We will be heard

Verse 2

There making up the rules and playing us like fools in the process
No wonder why you’re so stressed
Burning the candle at both ends tryna progress
With a car full of kids singing ‘Daddy are we home yet?’
You’re either fighting for a slice of something you won’t get
Or fighting for something that you just don’t get.
We all fight no less
Under the pretense ‘if it don’t make dollars it don’t make sense’
Shit I’d love to be rich, who wouldn’t?
Your kidding if you say you wouldn’t
They let us run around with our heads in the sand till we’re through looking for gold,
Cause the world’s cold, even for the do-gooders
So I raise hell, no heaven for a saint either
You pray to a different image but follow the same leader
Killing independent thought, straight ether
Like it or not but when we die we all get the same treatment
Never understood hate based on race, gender, age
Or whether somebody’s gay or straight either
I hate everybody the same, fuck you very much
Close the door, turn the music up.
That’s the spot

Hook

We are the youth these are our stories,
C’mon and sing it loud, We will be heard
We are the youth these are our stories,
C’mon and sing it loud, We will be heard
Put em up, put em up, put em up,
Put em up, put em up, put em up,
Put em up, put em up, put em up,
Put em up, put em up, put em up,

Verse 3

Run, run, run. Don’t let em catch you
Don’t stand up straight just cause they told you ‘you have to’
Pride is perspective, don’t let them trap you
In all of the bullshit that you’re supposed to adapt to
I tend to run out of energy for the pleasantries
I aint tryna work for somebody else until im 70
Im tryna get a piece, don’t want no-one to share with me
I want my own, and to get it I bare my teeth
I'm in the thick of it
Forgiveness is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow of bitterness
Administer, the serum, get a hit of this
Van Gough on his death bed couldn’t illustrate how ill it is
Look at the conditions that the kid has been living in
Just thank god he grew disciplined
Far from innocent or a clean cut citizen
But he know right from wrong so what the fuck is the difference?
I don’t see what the fuss it bout, I don’t see the significance
You approach life passive, me I’m more militant
See I don’t have the degrees or certificates
But you learn the most out of life by living it
A treat mine like a song and im mixing it
Tryna turn up opportunity, turn down the ignorance
So if you need me I’ma be with my mistresses
With a smile on my face living limitness
This is us..
