Background and ReleaseEdit

"I think we made it clear that although it is kind of a snapshot of how we see society and how a lot of people can see it, that we're all a part of it and we're not pointing a finger at people. Everything is online."[1]

On "No Shame", 5SOS sings about infatuation the current society has molded to seek fame and attention on the internet, and real life. The song is their first single of 2020, and acts as the third single for the band’s upcoming album, CALM, announced on the same day of the track’s release.

The track was teased in the background of promotional material for the album, each member posting a video on social media ending with their first initial, forming the album’s name. The band also named their 2020 world tour after the song.

Lyrics Edit

Angel, with the gun in your hand
Pointin' my direction, givin' me affection
Love is fatal, won't you give it a chance?
Center of attention, don't you ask me any questions

Go on and light me like a cigarette
Even if it might be somethin' you'll regret
You got me now, now, now
Swallow me down, down, down, down

I only light up when cameras are flashin'
Never enough and no satisfaction
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name
Diggin' my grave to get a reaction
Changin' my face and callin' it fashion
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name

Lay me in the palm of your hand
I'll give you my permission, you'll always be forgiven
Go on, replace me
When you're cravin' somethin' sweeter than the words I left in your mouth
Go on and spit me out

I only light up when cameras are flashin'
Never enough and no satisfaction
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name
Diggin' my grave to get a reaction
Changin' my face and callin' it fashion
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name

I love the way you're screaming my name
I love the way you're screaming my name

Go on and light me like a cigarette
Even if it might be somethin' you'll regret
You got me now, now, now
Swallow me down, down, down, down

I only light up when cameras are flashin'
Never enough and no satisfaction
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name
Diggin' my grave to get a reaction
Changin' my face and callin' it fashion
Got no shame
I love the way you're screaming my name

I love the way you're screaming my name
I love the way you're screaming my name
