Track Name: Curlew's Call
‘Tis a rare thing, to hear someone smart at that turn of phrase.
Such venom, such devotion, alas, is so misplaced
Still you call, and I’ll come wading through
Though my belt hole may have changed,
I’m still hankering after god knows

Believe me, the flag with the cross means the world to me
Equally, taking up arms never suited me
My persuasion remains the same
I’m still hankering after god knows
I’m still hankering after the unknown, the unknowable dream, just out of reach as you wake from your sleep, it slips from your grip, give me your hand
Give me your all,
You cry, you can’t, you call

And it feels like someone is calling me
Longing for you to get hold of me
Track Name: Down The Duchy
Driving down the duchy on the left hand side
It’s like another country,
It is another country to some of us
So he pulled over to the right, and sat in a lay by,
Lying about his life,
And lying to the wife and constituents
On a march to reclaim the country lanes
Will you be the one who gives way?

Standing on the border with a boot on both sides
Part lion, part dandy,
He could be any man’s shandy
He says: ‘If I were the Prince of Wales
I would take over
I’d start the procedure and separate’
Up up away, up top a hill,
Standing for your county
Standing in the way of somebody and their career
But these mountains are made of china clay
Will you be the one who gives way?

Waiting for a landslide
