I wrote this song remembering my 7th birthday in Istanbul, Turkey. My parents bought me a bejewelled dagger. That day I walked the old, cobblestone streets showing people my dagger and asking them for money. They would laugh and give me a coin.


Sunlight reflects off the silver handle, dripping down the moon-shaped blade. Held to the throat of a businessman. Yeah, you laugh, but it's your money or your life.

It's ok, it's ok to lose control, with these child-like visions on the streets of Istanbul. Don't be afraid to lose control,'cause all you need is a blade on the streets of Istanbul.
