lyrics

I promised you a promised land
Because it's important to be lied to
I promised if you took my hand
I would always be beside you
I promised a land of milk and honey
But it disappeared very suddenly
What's left will be gone soon
That'll be important too

I promised you a place to be
Because it's important that you see this
Nobody sees the world like me
Sees past the liars and deceivers
I promised you we'd make our own fate
But now they're gathering at the gate

I swore no harm would come to you
To teach the lesson it's not true
Now the world is breaking through
You can see what we must do

I promise you there'll be no pain
It's important that you trust this
You know the world will never change
We cannot escape injustice
I promise you we will be together
And we'll all be free forever

I promised you a promised land
Because it's important to be lied to
I put the promise in your hand
And now the promise is inside you

Solo stuff by Gwilym Wogan. aka me.

If I limit myself to five it's XTC, Momus, Nobuo Uematsu, Radiohead and Kate Bush. And Beck. And Donald Fagen. And Frank Klepacki. And game music in general. ... more
