‘Rules That Won’t be Broken’ sets the central theme for Requin’s upcoming debut album ‘Shark’. The title of the song is taken from a poem written by singer Fionn Richards that refers to the brittle barriers of safety that one often doesn’t realise are being taken for granted. The song (and album) speaks to the shock and subsequent ripple effects that occur when someone repeatedly crosses these assumed barriers. The notable, repeated chorus refrain, “I can’t be the same” serves a dual meaning - referring both to the subject’s desire to never be like their bully and their desire to learn to change so it does not happen again.
