Bernando proclaims that whatever it is Rat’s doing, it’s not music, and swears that he could “give it soul”.


My mother said
Music comes from your heart
It's in your soul
For some, it's all they know
But mom was wrong
Bless her heart
She couldn't know
And thankfully never had to hear
This noise that’s coming to my ears
There is no kindness in the words
There is no softness to be heard
It's from a place she's never been

There is no soul
There is no soul
She didn't know
She didn't know
She didn't know of this
It has no soul

And all the cool kids
With their clever, hipster tees
They just follow him Like lemmings, until their ears ring and bleed But for me
It has no soul
It has no soul…
There will be kindness in the words
There will be softness to be heard
There is a sound straight from my dreams
I’ll give it soul
I’ll give it soul
Then they will know
Then they will know
They will hear all of me
I’ll give it soul
