lyrics

Now we know the earth is round, with no edges to be found.  
Except between the land and sea, and one another's dignity
Now we know the earth is round, and has no edges to be found.  
But some of us have fallen off.  and are living in the rough

The waves of progress burst throughout he harbor.  
Awash on this shore, we thirst for safe quarter.
But horizon's hid by ads and ringtones.  
Where is the sea?  They've bombarded me

I have no arms to hold the pain.  
Distract me, take away my name
Is there no border to the shame?  
I've lost the connection, it's gone away

All in the same boat, or is it some cruel joke?  
So it seems residing below equator comfort zone
To what price is this first world's buffer zone?  
Living off the back of third world war-torn homes?

Never thought the tide would bring ships of shackles and lies.  
Situation critical, overwhelmed we cry
and we  ravage the planet, not looking back on it,
Appetite for apathy justified

Let's play our part and turn the tide

I have no arms to hold the pain.  
Distract me, take away my name
Is there no border to the shame?  
I've lost the connection; it's gone away


Now we know the earth is round  
and has no edges to be found
But darling we were only lucky to be
on this side of hunger and poverty

Let's play our part and turn the tide.  Play our part  and turn the tide

I have no arms to hold the pain
Distract me take away my name
Where is the border to our shame?  
We've lost the connection;  it's gone away.  
It's gone away.

about

Peneleapaí Clare, Ireland

"A high lonesome in the home of the heart, her work is described as World Trad Roots; folk with an organic edge. Raw, original, consciousness-raising.. A free spirit whose music speaks lucidly deep. A tapestry woven of fierce, timeless, and embodied expression.
Beguiling innocence which nontheless points at th highest power
A potent force of Nature based in the enigma that is past & future Ireland
