about

Our first single - taken from our forthcoming debut EP, to be released late summer 2016

lyrics

I want to tell you a story,
About a man I never met,
And his name,
It doesn't matter.

He woke early Sunday morning,
Like he knew he would,
Even though it was his day off.

Bacon and eggs for breakfast,
Midway through,
The call he'd been expecting.

"Get here by eleven, I guess you know what this is for"
Of that,
There was no doubt.

"I'm sorry to drag you out like this"
The foreman said,
But our man, he just shook his head.

"It's a honour for me to be here"
And with that, he got to it,
An artist at work.

Four years later,
More work to do,
Laying John to rest again.

"I'm proud of you"
John's brother said to him,
But our man, he just shook his head.

"It's an honour for me to be here"
And with that, he got to it,
An artist at work.

Years have passed now,
And our man has joined John,
Like he knew he would.

The job he did for so many,
Has been done for him,
Just a few yards away.

It was always his honour to be here,
But now the honour is mine,
Telling you his tale.

I want to tell you a story,
About a man I wish I'd met,
And his name...
