Chris T​-​T - A to Z (piano version)

from by Various Uncivilised Artists

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    From the Mourning of the World is a unique compilation album brought to you by the Dark Mountain Project, the global network of artists, musicians and writers who are crafting new stories for a civilisation in trouble.

    Featuring: an exclusive alternate version of Caesar recorded specially for the album by BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2011, Chris Wood; BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2010 Jon Boden; celebrated artists such as Chris T-T and Bethia Beadman (whose track is a duet with REM’s Mike Mills); this is a beautiful compilation of the wild and uncivilised music associated with the Dark Mountain Project.

    Through our IndieGogo crowdfunding page we managed to raise just under £3000 of the £5000 we need to create this beautiful album on vinyl. If you order a copy you will receive the download immediately but the vinyl might be a few months behind. We have a number of fundraising gigs planned as well as selling copies through this bandcamp page so you should have your copy by the end of the summer.

    Thank you for supporting our first venture into creating an album!
    The Dark Mountain Team

They closed the airports
They closed the stations
Nobody leaves here without permission
They’ve been putting up roadblocks
They’ve been reading their A-Zs
Stay indoors with the curtains closed
Prepared for emergencies

But we’re bored of the curfew
And we’re running out of patience
With the soldiers on every corner
So we’re gonna go out tonight
Gonna get ourselves in a real fight
Not following any more orders
Everybody get up off your knees

You know me now too well to leave
You know that I would never lie
Or keep this stuff locked up inside of me

There was never an invasion
There was never any monsters
They made them up to keep everybody scared
Telling lies is the way for them
So come and get us if you want us
We’re going round to their houses now
We’re gonna burn them out of bed

You know me now too well to leave
You know that I would never lie
Or sell you out – I’d rather die
And you know me now too well to be deceived
I’m not joking around anymore
Watch us now we’re gonna start a war
