Against You

Album: Dark Adrenaline (2012)
  • This song finds frontwoman and co-lyricist Cristina Scabbia singing about uprising. She explained to Noisecreep: "It's not really a political song. It's been inspired by some of the riots that happens a few months ago in South Africa for example and that made me think that the world is changing so much because some people are starting to realize what they really want from their life - and this can be because of internet; this can be because people are more aware of what is happening in the whole world - but that gave us the inspiration that sometimes you really have to stand up for yourself and make the big changes. You have to fight for whatever you feel is your right because if you don't stand up, nobody else will do it for you. So it can be applied in life. Of course, I'm not talking about a war or anything like that."
