Lyrics by Stan Major

Armistice Day

Chorus A
Bm | G | F#m
Armistice Day
which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning
Dm | C | Bb | Am | Gm
chorus B — the “eleventh hour
of the eleventh day
of the eleventh month”
of 1918
Em

100 years ago
war to end all wars
at the 11th hour
of the 11th day
of the 11th month
of 1918
Bm | G | F#m
the war to end all wars ended.
100 years ago
there were people
who thought we’d seen the worst
… who were blinded to the future
… who couldn’t see that we were cursed.
Chorus B
[interlude: ]
Dresden, Nagasaki,
Hiroshima, Shock and awe
Chorus A
Those who own death
… they think they have won
… we need to scream at these people
… show them what they’ve really done.

They keep standing so proud
… amidst suffering and gore
… we can’t let them believe
what they think they are anymore
Chorus A
… Those who own death
need to totally own what they’ve done
… own every life,
daughter, mother, son, and father
they’ve killed

In 2118
where will we be
eleven o’clock in the morning?

Tale of the navigator

 

this one started of by recording a cajon and a snare drum. After that I added many layers of different instruments: violin, mandoline, banjo, bass and some synth parts. Then I re-edited the cajon and snare to get a bit of coherence. I could call this incidental music, and it might be used for the Brendan musical I am currently writing with Dan Lockhart and Share Pillay.

Discussed at the Songwriters Kitchen Forum
