about

In the UK, only 1.5% of rape cases lead to a charge or summons. Payback is a song about how the UK criminal justice system fails survivors - and we’re angry about it. This is a country where two women are murdered every week by a partner or ex-partner. So many women have lived through
sexual and physical abuse, and carry the scars and memories of that – but will never see justice for it.

lyrics

I remember what you did
I remember what you said
I remember what you did
I remember what you said

We drowned in tears, we swam in pain,
We pulled ourselves back from the grave
We drowned in tears, we swam in pain
We pulled ourselves back from the grave

One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!

Living in crosshairs this is war
You took it all but still want more
Sleeping with the enemy and we call it “love”
Sleeping with the enemy and we call it love

One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!

Hey! (Hey!)
Mister! (Mister!)
Get your hands off my sister!
Hey! (Hey!)
Mister! (Mister!)
Get your hands off my sister!
Hey! (Hey!)
Mister! (Mister!)
Get your hands off my sister!
Hey! (Hey!)
Mister! (Mister!)
Get your hands off my sister.

We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this!

We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this
We can’t live like this

One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!
One day we’ll make you pay!

about

Dream Nails are a punk force to be reckoned with. The hotly-tipped band was founded by feminist activists in 2015, mixing unapologetically political content with pop punk joy. The female fourpiece have built a reputation across the UK, Europe and Scandinavia for their riotously feelgood live shows. ... more
