The Boycott Coca Cola Experience - Mum

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!

lyrics

My mum was born in 1942
Her mum was born in 1909
Her mum was born in 1883
Her mum was born in 1861
Her mum was born in 1840
Her mum was born in 1819
Her mum was born in 1796

I know how to live in the land where I was born
I know how to live in the land where I was born
I know how to live in the land where I was born

Her mum was born in 1272
Her mum was born in 95 BC
Her mum was born in 2000 BC
Her mum was there when they were building Stone Henge for the first time
Her mum never saw a wheel
Her mum was born twenty thousand years ago
Her mum was born two hundred thousand years ago
Her mum was a different species

I know how to live on the land where I was born
I know how to live on the land
I know how to live on the land I've just gotta watch Ray Mears to remind myself of it

I look out my window all I can see is cars
Then I close my eyes
The cars disappear
I'm sitting in a cave
Looking out over the sea
Surrounded by my tribe
We're singing
And shelling shellfish and chucking the shells out on the midden

It's the stone age
We love it
It's the stone age
We love it
We love it

We know how to live
We know how to live
We know how to live

I love sitting by the midden
With you
I love sitting by the midden, shelling shellfish and chucking the shells out on the midden
With you
I love going round the back of the midden
With you
I love my life and I know how to live it
