about

Psalms Video @ vimeo.com/127333622

We regularly play at an open mic night - The Candle Club, Southampton. 'Psalms for the Back Room Crowd' was written about Simon Stickland, a poet who performs there. However, it is essentially for and about the global everyday folk who overcome their fears and get on stage to perform for strangers. These moments can move and affect people profoundly but the performer may never know.

lyrics

Psalms for the Back Room Crowd

Do you wake up in a daze
Wondering if your dreams are real?
Two worlds the wrong way round
Every day’s a black out day
It masks the pain, for real
But it's Ok, we're sick and life's just great!
There’s a man I know
Who lives each day with no delusion
There’s a man I know
Who sees the truth with no illusion
And he writes it down
Moves it all around
Into Psalms for the back room crowd

Do you lie in bed and hold your head
Is it you that’s breathing?
Does it matter either way?
It's just another black out day
Can't take the pain
Who's deceiving who - Is it you?

This man I know holds a mirror to my soul
This man I know reminds me truth is beautiful
And he writes it down
Moves it all around
Into Psalms for the back room crowd

Each Monday night his words takes flight
Everything he's written comes alive
And it's all right, it's all right - yes it is yeah
He throws his lines into the corners of my mind
Lighting up the shadows where I hide
And it's all right, he's a light - yes he is yeah

Who said Angels gotta be angelic?
This Angel don't do angelic
