Weekend Of Mass Destruction

Multi-chart-topping prodigy Daniel Baron is no stranger to pushing the envelope of pop music, and holds nothing back in his latest offering. 16 June 2017 (Youth Day) marked the worldwide release of his highly anticipated third studio album 'Weekend Of Mass Destruction', which debuted in the Top 10 of the iTunes album chart. The monumental radio hit singles ‘Beautiful Noise’ and ‘Children Of The Sun’ (SA TOP40 #1 Hit) form only the ‘tip-of-the-iceberg’ in this explosive culmination of genre-jumping acrobatics he is famous for. Cinematic string sections unveil hard- style drops and collide with African deep house beats. Addictive pop-infused hooks belted out by Baron's metallic vocals form contrast to an array of organic dance with a near Middle-Eastern flare erupting in cross-cultural fireworks. It's an intricate but fearlessly crafted masterpiece as apt as the lyric "I like to play with fire" in the untamed rock/EDM hybrid 'Pyromaniac', and as honest as the hip-hop inspired soul-baring 'Piano Off The Roof'. Baron's signature youthful choirs echo through-out the alluring intro ‘Pink Atomic Symphony’ as well as the anthemic title track 'Weekend', which delivers the album's constant parallel theme of celebrating love and destroying hate in one colossal earth-shaking party. "Love is the reason that we can Armageddon on the dance floor", sings Daniel, adding a pertinent and prophetic message of biblical proportions: "If we don't love there's gonna be a rapture." Daniel speaks about his experience creating his latest work: “I have never been as proud of anything in my life as I am of this album. I have never worked this hard. I’ve put everything behind this project, and I have all faith in it. My only goal with this, is prove that music can create peace and love, and bring enemies together in one dance.” The chameleon of music — Baron remains a maverick on his love/war-path. “Weekend Of Mass Destruction” releases exclusively to Apple Music & iTunes, with 1000 limited edition autographed physical CD’s up for order.

LYRICS
Pink Atomic Symphony
Don't think
Love is atomic
Paint the world (x2)
Pink

Weekend
I've been tryna find an antidote
A little hope
A happy ever after
But It's always been inside of us
If we don't love
There's gonna be a rapture

When you see the fire in the sky
Make love, don't fight
Atomic hearts explode tonight

Chorus
This is the weekend, the weekend
The one we've been waiting for
Love is the reason that we can
Armageddon on the dancefloor
We gonna light it up
Set the whole world on fire
Oh woah
So put your weapons down
And let your love take you higher

Send a message all around the world
Africa to New York
Broadcasting on all radios
When they hear the sound of hate no more
And loves runs to the core
There's gonna be a rainbow

When you see the fire in the sky
Make love, don't fight
Atomic hearts explode tonight

Chorus
Piano Off The Roof
Check my pulse, I don't feel a thing
I've been flying without my wings
Found some songs inside of my soul
(Back when) 808's killed rock n roll

Now I'm living my symphony
Dreaming in melodies
Running from obscurity
All my life I'm psycho-analyzing
Defying gravity
Girls are surrounding me
Ebony ivory
Am I a celebrity?
Now I can hardly breath

Chorus
Sometimes I wanna scream out loud
And switch off all the music
Throw the microphone to the ground
Drop the piano off the roof

God gave me the pain and the bliss
There's no leaving this Rocket-Ship
Sometimes I don't get what I want
But still I keep on chasing the sun

Im living my symphony
Dreaming in melodies
Tryna leave a legacy
When I die will they make a movie of me
Pay me my royalties
Don't want no drinks free
Jesus is watching me
Once I've said my Grammy speech
Imma be outta dreams

Chorus

I'm stuck in this symphony
Don't know what is wrong with
I can't break these piano keys

I'm stuck in this symphony
Life gets loud but I'm still free
Music helps my heart to beat

Chorus
Beautiful Noise
This is the sound of something real
Two worlds collide in one heartbeat

I've been Lookin all over
I've been looking all over
For you
(Now) I feel you getting closer
Doing things we not supposed ta
But we're human too

Chorus
Your love is a beautiful noise
It's such a beautiful noise
My head's spinning round to the sound of your voice
It's such a beautiful noise
Beautiful Noise

You are the song inside my head
Its playing on without no end
Cos you're not finished yet
Your symphonies everywhere

I've been Lookin all over
I've been looking all over
For you

(Now) I feel you getting closer
Doing things we not supposed ta
But we're human too

Chorus

It's so beautiful
It's such a beautiful noise x2
Pyromaniac
I was born inside a supernova
I was a fire child
My heart's still burning don't come any closer

Chorus
They call me Pyromaniac
Cos I like to play with fire
Pyromaniac
I like to play with fire
Play with fire (x3)
Pyro, pyromaniac

My daddy said I'd be a dragonslayer
He put the fire in my eyes
I've walked through hell with a defibrillator

Chorus
Walking On Air
When I die
I don't wanna be the only one to say I could've
Even if I fall down I just wanna say that I did it
And I wanna do it all

Stay tonight
We going up the elevator to the clouds and the airplanes
Heaven is the afterparty, come on baby don't be late
We won't be Afraid to fall

Chorus
I'm walking on air air
Flying on a prayer
Gravity can't hold me down
Im staying up here here
I got no fear
Thirty thousand feet off the ground
I'm walking on...
air air air air x2

When I cry
I'm gonna use my to tears to make it rain
Then I'll make the sun shine down all over again
Imma be above it all

Chorus
Children Of The Sun
We are forever young
In vain we run from the night
Dreaming of Avalon
We're staring at the sky

Chorus
We are children of the sun
We stay forever young
Our light is burning brighter than the
Wicked things that we have done
But now love has begun
And We are still the children of the sun

We are forever young
We're Walking on beams of light
The stars are becoming one
We sing cos we are alive

Chorus
Private Show
I'll take you to a place
Where all the wild things go
The air is sweet and the musics slow
Untie your lace
No one has to know
The lights are fading, and we're all alone

And then you hit me like a tidal wave
Then morning comes, you tease the more I crave

Chorus
Listen to the music
Girl there's nothing to it
No one has to know
Let me take you home
Draw the curtains
This is our private show
Cue the lights (x3)

Turn the camera on
Lets can make a movie now
I'll be director you can teach me how
We don't have to wait
Skip to the matinee
We'll keep it going
There's no other way

And then you hit me like a tidal wave
Then morning comes, you tease the more I crave

Chorus

Rap

Chorus
Blood & Violins
When words become machine guns
When all these lies turn in to truth
They cannot kill this symphony
We will not run
We are the youth

Chorus
The war is over
This is the sound of, a changing future
We are soldiers
Marching along, singing Hallelujah
The same blood runs through all our veins
We are sinners we are saints
Look above
This is Love
No more blood
Let the violins play

More tears will fall From broken skies
When music bleeds out we will heal
These songs will live forevermore
Our hearts will feel
Now we will rise

Chorus
Euphoria
I can't get any higher in this place
God knows that I'm here and heaven ain't faraway
I don't want this to go to waste
Hurt me 'cause I love the pain
The mercury's rising in my veins

Chorus
Euphoria (x3)
Now I'm stepping outside of myself
With your heavenly body that I know so well
Take my Heavy metal heart to melt
Cos I don't want no body else
This waves getting higher than I've ever felt

Chorus
Euphoria (x3)
Bridge

You for me
Me for you
Euphoria
Touch You
Never knew that I was made to be with you
Till i touched you
Now I wanna be with you again
I've tried to getaway a thousand times
But when our bodies touch we magnetize
It feels just like x2
The first time

Chorus
It's not that I need ya
It's not that I want ya
It's not that I need ya
It's not that I want ya
I just wanna touch you
Touch you (repeat)

Never knew that I was made to be with you
Till i touched you
Now I wanna be with you again

Chorus
W.T.F.
(Talking)

Chorus
What the funk?

(Talking)
Chorus
What the funk?
Electro
If my heart was a machine
You would be my energy
If the universe was in my bedroom
Would you spend a lifetime here with me

Pre-Chorus
Every time we touch
The lights go out around us
Time and space surrounds us
The whole world turns to dust

Chorus
Could this be electromagnetic love (x2)
Electromagnetic love
My Darling we are one

I don't need no crystal ball
To prove that we're forevermore
God wrote our love story before we met
Our grand kids will tell it when we're dead

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

I will never understand
Just How your mind ticks on the second hand
But when our hearts explode in a million symphonies
It's beautiful electricity

Chorus
