Stones Zibbz Switzerland

Zibbz will represent Switzerland at Eurovision 2018 with their song “Stones”. The duo won Switzerland’s national final Die Entschediungsshow – ESC 2018.

Zibbz are made up of brother and sister duo, Stee and Coco. The group split their time between Zurich and LA, and released their latest album “It Takes a Village” in September 2017.

The duo started playing instruments at an early age, inspired by their musician parents. By their teens, they had their own reality show on Swiss MusicTV, which had them touring Swiss festivals and clubs.

The song is a cautionary tale about the pressures of modern life. The chorus asserts, “We’re the liars in the face of facts / Different weapon but the same attack / No, I ain’t throwing stones”.

Stones – “Zibbz”

“Stones” lyrics – Zibbs (Eurovision 2018)

Wild joker on a gold throne
Blood diamond, summer home
Wrong people with the right to know
But I can’t do anything about it

All saying that life’s hard
Don’t want it in our backyard
We should be further from the start
But I can’t do anything about it

We’re so afraid, we fire away
What’s a life worth
We’re so afraid, repeat the mistake
Just to come first

We’re the liars in the face of facts
Different weapon but the same attack
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing stones
Every lesson lost in the past
Pardon me, but I don’t wanna go back
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing stones

Think the boogie man will get me
Think different is the enemy
It’s been this way for centuries
And I can’t do anything about it

Can’t wait to light the cannonball
Can’t face the mirror, says it all
Sins of the father make us fall
And I can’t do anything about it

We’re so afraid, we fire away
Just to come first

We’re the liars in the face of facts
Different weapon but the same attack
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing stones
Every lesson lost in the past
Pardon me, but I don’t wanna go back
No, I ain’t throwing stones
Oh because I know,
I ain’t standing alone

I ain’t standing alone
No, I ain’t standing alone
I ain’t the only one who don’t wanna throw stones

We’re the liars in the face of facts
Different weapon but the same attack
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing stones
Every lesson lost in the past
Pardon me, but I don’t wanna go back
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing stones

We’re the liars in the face of facts
Different weapon but the same attack
No, I ain’t throwing stones
No, I ain’t throwing
No, I ain’t throwing stones

I am trying to get the meaning of the lyrics but I fail. Can someone help me? Sorry for my English ?

An underrated entry, and certainly a solid pop song. I’m not exactly sure why it’s been shunned by ESC fans because it’s a definite improvement on all of CH’s recent entries (yes, even ‘Apollo’). In fact, it’s one of relatively few ESC songs that go into my conventional music playlist.

Not a single comment?!
I must have missed out on something. This is more than decent and the sound is good. Why the Siberia treatment? Anyone?

Maybe because it is not synth pop with zero lyrics, and then it is too much work to try and make out the meaning of two stanzas?
