"Young Blood" as written by and Michael Francis Gonzalez Matt Parad....
We were making history
Breaking rules and breaking free
Questioning the writing on the wall
Coming from the underground
Laughing as we're falling down
Soaking in the glory of it all

But in dark times when we close our eyes
It’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare
When the sun don’t shine we lose our minds
But I swear, we can get there

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

Someday we could run away
See it all before the pictures fade
And bottle up the feeling in a jar
Pass around to all our friends
We can breathe it in and out again
Huddled in the backseat of the car

But in dark times when we close our eyes
It’s a nightmare, it’s a nightmare
When the sun don’t shine we lose our minds
But I swear, we can get there

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

And the voices will get loud
If you never learn to shut them out
If you’re lost you can be found
If you follow me until you hear the sound
Put ‘em up, put ‘em up now
If you know we’re never backing down
We’re never backing down, no

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world

We’ve got young blood
Can’t destroy us
We make our own luck in this world
We’ve got young blood
No one chose us
We make our own love in this world
Yeah, 'cause we’ve got young blood

    General CommentYour new single “Young Blood” has a rebellious edge. Is that representative of what you’re about?
    Yeah. The song has darkness and light within it, which I think is really cool and representative of kids. We’re the future, and we can do whatever we want because someday this world will be ours. Literally, it will be because we will be the adults who are in charge some day.

    That attitude helps you stand out from other teenage pop stars.
    I like my sound mostly because it is really different from most pop music right now. It doesn’t necessarily gravitate only toward positivity because there’s another side to people, and I think that it should be expressed in music.

    How did you come up with that philosophy?
    For a long time I was kind of a glass-half-empty type of person. I went through a hard time. I started to compare myself to my friends, what they were doing compared to what I was doing. I realized eventually that it’s not healthy to think so negatively, that there is a positive side.

    Life is not going from bad to good, but it’s a balance of the two that kind of goes up and down. There are bad things and there are good things. I thought it would be good to bring that into music because I realized that I’m not the only one who feels that way, that a lot of teenagers especially feel that way. Like the weight of the world is on their shoulders, and I wanted to be able to express that so that teenagers could relate to it and realize they’re not alone.

    What can we expect from your “Young Blood” video?
    It’s very dark, but, like I said with the actual song, it’s kind of a balance of light and dark. It’s weird. I actually saw the rough edit. There are going to be so many more rough edits, but I saw it yesterday, and there’s a lot of jump cuts and quick movements but there are also slow moments. It has kids laughing and then kids screaming and crying… it’s kind of a balance all of these emotions.

    When it’s going to come out?
    June. Early June was what I was told last. (2015)
