about

This comes ahead of Glow Ghosts, released for free download on Vulpiano on the 14th of July and Sandalphon on the 22nd of September (yes the Autumnal Equinox, naturally).

The A-side if you can call a download that as there're no sides, Europe's Missing Sons, will be on Sandalphon; the B-side is, obviously, exclusive as you can't just stick a track on the internet and call it a single as any good lover of pop music knows.

It's coming out now as my statement on the EU referendum: I think Europe needs to stand together, also we can't give the government any more power than they've already got and let's face it even if you do vote out it's very likely that Parliament will overturn it anyway. Europe's Missing Sons is about the rise of the dual forces of religious extremism and far-right extremism, two sides of the same coin. I wrote this a while ago and take no pleasure from being right because any idiot could've guessed things'd go this way and many people more clued up than me were warning us.

Listen to this as the world burns.

Track Name: Europe's Missing Sons
Pale magma cascade down
The infant volcano
I was ready and able, still unwilling
Til now I was silent
In this language of violence
Til these sheep dressed as wolves made a killing

Don't turn to the right
Not out of spite
For it achieves nothing
They speak of honour and pride
Words with nothing inside
European suffering
Don't turn to the right
Not out of spite
For it achieves nothing
Just stick to your guns
Europe's missing sons

You can beat your tin drum
Til you shake and you cum
You're ready and willing
But unable
Romanticised rhetoric
Licentious lies
What else do the right bring to the table?

Don't turn to the right
Not out of spite
For it achieves nothing
They speak of honour and pride
Words with nothing inside
Europe is suffering
Please stick to your guns
Europe's missing sons

Don't turn to the right
Not out of spite
For they'll achieves nothing
They speak of honour and pride
Nothing but lies
Please stick to your guns
Europe's missing sons
Track Name: We Learned Nothing
Show, don't tell

I will not give up and I will not give in
No matter what it comes to
Don't care if I win
Nothing
I LEARNED NOTHING
I don't know where they came from
But this no game
They're nothing to me now, unworthy of names
Nothing
THIS IS NOTHING

Let's go to the beginning
A line in the dust
The principles they built on, jealousy and lust
Nothing
THEY LEARNED NOTHING
Against the modern world and the old world too
Wasted potential
Let's start anew from nothing
THIS IS NOTHING

Worlds will turn
Words will burn
Flickered and extinguished in a blink
Books will burn
When will we learn
Teetering on the brink of extinction
Among the ruins
Of our own doing
This is nothing
We learned nothing
We learned nothing
