Title track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOmm7fq1NxM...6AD&index=9

This new album has been leaked on youtube, my favorite band in the past 5 years easily. I know you peeps can appreciate music and lyrics like this:

Beggars.

"All you great men of power,
you who boast of your feats,
politicians and entrepreneurs:
Can you safeguard your breath in the night while you sleep,
keep your heart beating steady and sure?
As you lie in your bed,
does the thought haunt your head,
that your really rather small?
If there's one thing I know in this life,
We are beggars all!

All you champions of science,
And rulers of men:
Can you summon the sun from its sleep?
And does the earth seek your council on how fast to spin?
Can you shut up the gates of the deep?
And don't you know that all things,
hang as if by string o'er the darkness,
poised to fall?
If there's one thing I know in this life,
We are beggars all!

All you big-shots do swagger,
and strive with conceit.
Did you devise that your fray would be fought?
If you've been raised in a palace,
or live about on the streets,
(did you) choose the place or the hour you'd be born?
Tell me what can you claim?
Not a thing!
Not your name!
Tell me if you can recall,
just one thing, not a gift, in this life?
Can you hear what's been said?
Can you see now that everything's graced?
After all,
if there's one thing I know in this life,
We are beggars all! "

Glad you all like! biggrin.gif This song is some powerful stuff.

Their earlier stuff started out as progressive punk, but lately everything they do is of the experimental rock variety. Politically and socially speaking I think this band is totally relevant and completely in touch. I suspect they're down with the truth movement too, judging from the lyrics in "Broken Lungs". wink.gif

Some of my other favorites by them are "For Miles", "Of Dust and Nations", "All the World is Mad", "The Whaler". Enjoy!
