Just listened to the whole song. To be completely honest, I'd expected it to be a better. And I had already had rather low hopes / expectations. Like the fact that she just changed "I" to "we" and "me" to "us" etc. Or that she wouldn't change the production (much). I had expected those things. But I had hoped that she would be a bit cleverer about changing some lyrics. Just like Tom pointed out, "we're stronger, that's why we're alive" doesn't really fit and indeed sort of sounds like all those who passed away due to the virus weren't fighting enough. Like, it doesn't necessarily have to do with strength whether you survive this virus or not. And the bridge... jeez, really? "This will be behind us". It doesn't rhyme and it sounds so generic, bland, and unemotional. I almost wish they'd just left it at "you can't cut or scar us". I'm also disappointed with the vocal production. It sounds a bit muffled somehow and sort of like they just quickly put it together. And why overedit her voice like this on "we are warriors" just before the 2nd verse? This production reminds me very much of "Fly", and "Fly" is imo one of the weakest produced songs of Avril's.
Man, I really wish I had more positive things to say. But unfortunately the only thing that I really liked were her vocals in the 2nd verse, when she sang "like the armor you will see us shine". I really liked that flowing melody.
I can't believe that despite really not expecting much, I am once again disappointed with Avril's music. When any of my other favourite artists and bands announce something, I can simply enjoy the anticipation. With Avril, I always have to worry if I'm going to like it (not even love it, just like it) or if it's going to be another case of . Idk, maybe it's not actually that bad and I've simply outgrown her and her music.
