Outlandish Back In The Ring With "Warrior//Worrier"

Denmark loves their home grown band Outlandish and so do millions of Muslims around the world. While most of their Muslims fans enjoy their music, their positive messages are what draws them to this band. But outside those fan bases, Outlandish has fans around the world who love their music and their style. People like my roommate Clay who considers himself a huge fan.

Naturally, we would follow the band and their performances. This is a new single from them released in 2012 with the title "Warrior//Worrier" about the personal struggles no one is immune against. When an indie band music video hits a million view, one has to salute them.

What a strong showing by Outlandish. The have hit this subject on its head. We all have our demons we battle. Some chose to worry, others chose to fight. Their song is in English as always, but Spanish always gets an airtime.

Do do not give up whoever you are. Do not take your own life, it doe get better. This song's message rises above religions, cultures and languages form a band that enjoys a universal recognition which only makes their songs better.

Warrior // Worrier

Do whatever you love and you will be free
If you can't buy happiness try to lease
Or buy a better mirror stare a little longer now

One thousand reasons to cry out
Is that a life?
A thousand reasons to smile, I tell you why
Consolation to you tears I'ma light up your way

For what its worth
You're my warrior
And I'm your worrier

Do not be confused by the murderers
Goodness is bigger than us you can't see it cause
It is silent yeah but it's feeding this world

You are not depressed cause you fell out of love
Everything is a test maybe you´re better off
What you call a problem I just call them lessons of love

For what it's worth
You're my warrior
And I'm your worrier

Come on let's take a walk
Shh don't say a word
Let's not talk
Let the silence do all the communicating tonight
Life is not just a walk in the park
I know that
But its a start right
They say silence is gold
But its kind of hard when so much remains untold
You looking the other way me kicking up dust
Blocking the sun still got shades on
Blocking our point of view
Yeah we differ a lot about what and what not´s
What we ain't and what we could have got
Thinking our arms ain't to short to box with God
This ain't a midnight stroll in Paris
More like a careless walk through a field of land mines
I cherish you
Though you are a warrior too
What are we to do

God never promised you days without pain
Laughter without sorrow
Sun without rain
But He did promise strength for you every day

Still in Tears!! Oh how can I not be sad
For my guidance was
Was upon your hands
Wrapped around, I pray, I pray you understand

For what it's worth
You're my warrior
And I'm you worrier

Te falta el aire (Do you need air?)
Te compro el viento (I'll buy the wind)
Soy tu dinero (I'll be you money)

Si yo te quiero (Now that I love you?)
Porque te vas ( Why are you leaving?)
Mi fusilero (My executioner)

Soy lo que veo (I'm what I see)
Soy lo que das (I'm what you give)
Tu prisionero (I'm your prisoner)

Lo que me diste (What you gave me)
Lo guardo adrentro (I keep it inside)
Soy tu guerrero (I'm your warrior)

From my mother I learned
Never is too late
That's its always possible to start out again
You may feel you've stopped but you're just on your way

You are not depressed
You just unemployed
Time is all we got, don't you kill it boy
Everybody is in love when things are going well

For what it's worth
You're my warrior
And I'm your worrier
