From the debut album "My Country"released September 2nd, 2014.


Get your clappers out cause it's time to feast.

Some of us must suffer and it won't be me.

I seem to think it's doubtful that I could offer you defeat

If one of us goes down while the other sleeps

Now I call on all my citizens

cause I say we've all got faults

What we need's not to win again

Til harvest for me leads to harvest for all

The hardest to plead is a dead mans cause

You say ya got this offer that you would like me to see

Well write the offer down then get on your knees

And verily the anger will rise under the summers heat

As one of us bows out while the other speaks

Now I call on all my citizens

cause I see we've all got faults

And success could walk back in again

If harvest for me leads to harvest for all

The hardest to seize is a dead mans cause
