about

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

lyrics

There's a highway man

boy, he lives to entertain

With a virus aimed at the spirit and the brain

He can get you high on emotion for the things

That a life time spent on possession will never bring



Floating up then diving with all the house hold needs

Get some clothes. Get hired. What mortal lives we lead.

When that well runs dry there's another that we'll dig

As the chasms grow til it's what you're standing in



With people happy every where I see

People happy. Everywhere I see there's people happier than me.

There's people happier than me. You think you're happier than me?



As a man climbs higher he's further from the leaves

All that ancient matter we came from now we flee

We were fed and dry. What more comfort could there be?

Then we saw the shelves at the market place of thieves



With people happy everywhere I see

People happy. Everywhere I see

It's people happier than me

Those people happier than me.

You think you're happier than me?



As a soldier dies there's a price that's duly paid

To the master plan to acquire everything

It was hatched in private with so few listening

They can say "don't worry. we're handling everything"



But can you believe 'em, do you believe 'em

should you believe 'em, can you believe?

Do you believe 'em, can you believe 'em

should you believe 'em, can you believe?

Carry me children. Carry me over. Help me deliver. Help me believe

Carry me children. Carry me over. Help me deliver. Help me believe



There's people happy everywhere I see.

People happy. Everywhere I see there's people happier than me

There's people happier than me. You think you're happier than me?
