Lyrics
Listen

Adams hand on Eden's land
Under skies the same as ours
Worked the earth for what it's worth
And the world received flowers
Hurricanes then brought the rains
Rivers fear the flood
Then the slaughter by Holy water
Wines thicker than blood
Spirits died with broken pride
Nothing remained the same
Wars are fought by brothers taught
And lessons learned were all in vain

intro pre-chorus

No point believing
Now were deceiving
This thing you call faith
Tasted the kiss
From the Judas lips
Tempted the seal of fate

Chorus

Hear the voice of greed in people
Calling out for more
Listen to the need of people
Never had it all
Listen to the children playing under African sky
Listen to the mothers praying why why
Listen Listen

What's the cost of people lost
Among the shifting sand
Grovel child for diamond smile
And so called eternal band
Getting high as bullets fly
Kids don't know the truth
Can't decide who will die
The bloodline or their youth
Dollar displayed ransom paid
Black gold flows again
Raise the corn in pistol dawn
And learn to count to ten

Repeat pre-chorus

Broken the seal of fate

Chorus

Wars are fought by brothers taught
In how to wield the pen
In a race forlorn in pistol dawn

I like the guitar riff that starts this off. Powerful lyrics sung with the right blend of warmth and bite. I like what you do with the guitar on the word "listen". Impressive work, Baz - thanks for the download!

Powerful piece! Great lyrics delivered through a powerful vocal filled with emotion. A song this strong needs nothing more than that beautiful guitar.

And well worth it, it is. Fantastic. I will echo some of the previous comments and say "powerful." Deserving of much more attention here.

Impassioned
delivery and excellent lyrics.

I really like the vocals and the immediate sound of just guitar and voice.

Very nice work indeed.

Under skies the same as ours
I first noticed the photo you chose; then a beautiful guitar riff beginning and reappearing during the sad, sad observations of what's happening 'Under skies the same as ours.' Vocals make me listen attentively to what your singing about. Well done!

Imagine working at a steelworks in a northern town for more years than you care to remember, with words and lyrics always the main distraction from it all. Hastily written down on the back of job cards and scraps off paper, hidden away from your mate... [see more]
