about

A song about the differences in people's lives being attributed to the slightest, seemingly insignificant, choices. Almost completely acoustic except for Gordon's somewhat chilling, subtle theremin part.

lyrics

Fleet of foot and sleight of hand
Come and join our one man band
Cast off despair and self-loathing
The sheep in sheep's clothing

Don't forget we're only a step removed
From being skint and destitute
Don't forget the girl on the corner
Isn't just a prostitute
She's you and me without the choices

Come sup with us we'll give you greeting
Nourish you with soulful bleating
As nights are drawing, leaves are browning
Thoughts start to turn to festive clowning
Seasons change, life's right for changes
Don't despair at Autumn's rearranging

Don't forget we're only a step removed
From being skint and destitute
Don't forget the man on the corner
Isn't just a destitute
He's you and me without the choices

In the crowd without the voices
In the crowd without voices he's alone
We're all alone
We're all alone
Winter's gone and we're all alone
Let's stick together
Let's band together
Against the coming rain.

about

The Lunacy Board Wien, Austria

Somewhere between progressive/post-rock and skiffle lies 'The Lunacy Board'. Sometimes lyrically cutting, sometimes instrumental, but always challenging and raw.
