I don't believe I have ever knowingly posted an item twice and certainly not intentionally but this song haunts me and is well, frankly one of the best songs I have ever heard.........well, that MAY be a bit strong I grant you but you know how it is when a song gets under your skin and stays around in the archive in your head for days and weeks on end? This is such a song. Beautifully played, written and sung, I re-post it here in tribute to a wonderful band who's album 'Molehills Out of Mountains' is due any day now..............
Constitution Failed - Wilful Missing
Lyrics and line-up:
- Cover over everything Paper over cracks until it’s fine Fine at least for now Try your best to disappear Convince yourself that we can see See quite far enough As the poles retreat we face defeat head on Kill the light parade the last exploding bomb Feel the Fahrenheit, the last daylight The constitution failed to be, something Confident yet paralysed Terrify the president elect Elected by a thief Take a vow of honesty Promise to eliminate the poor But the poor are voiceless here As the poles retreat we face defeat head on Kill the light parade the last exploding bomb Feel the Fahrenheit, the last daylight The constitution failed to be, something More than I could hope to be Drowning helpless in the sea Carried by a rising tide Need to remedy this life
- from Molehills out of Mountains, released 05 December 2011 Sam Kipling (vocals, acoustic guitar) Sam Lawrence (mandolin, vocals) Albert Freeman (bass, vocals) Ruth Viqueira (drums, percussion) Rhys Kelly (organ) Sarah Smout (cello)
