Billy Talent shared a lyric video for a new track off their upcoming album. The album is still untitled but it is expected out later this year. The new song is called “Reckless Paradise.”

“Reckless Paradise” is is the first new music from Billy Talent since “Forgiveness I+II” dropped last November. The upcoming album will be the first new record from the Canadian rockers since 2016’s Afraid Of Heights.

Billy Talent have stated that their last release “Forgiveness I+II” will not appear on their upcoming album and that it is a standalone track. But, they plan to do more episodes in this narrative series in the future.

“Reckless Paradise” is a school lesson in melodic yet powerful riffs and supreme vocal range. The lyrics are mournful and politically charged. “I know that something has to change/We got lost along the way/Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain/’Cause we’re falling down again”

Check it out below.

Billy Talent “Reckless Paradise” Lyrics

Stuck in a crisis
Without a conscience
Trapped in a place we don’t belong
There’s no more heroes
Left to believe in
They’ve pushed our backs against the wall

I know that something has to change
We got lost along the way
Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain
‘Cause we’re falling down again

Crooks and deceivers
Misled believers
A world where decency is gone
Chaotic flashes
Of huddled masses
Stare down the barrel of the gun

I know that something has to change
We got lost along the way
Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain
‘Cause we’re falling down again

Live in a reckless paradise
The house is burning, trapped inside
A reckless paradise
The wheels are turning truth to lies
In reckless paradise
Could cut the tension with a knife
In reckless paradise
It’s up to us to read between the lines

Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain
‘Cause we’re falling down again

Reckless paradise
The house is burning, trapped inside
A reckless paradise
The wheels are turning truth to lies
In reckless paradise
Could cut the tension with a knife
In reckless paradise
It’s up to us to read between the lines

Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain
‘Cause we’re falling down again
