about

Bleeding Soul was inspired by the story of violin virtuoso Joshua Bell who played for 45 minutes at a metro station in Washington D.C. without being recognised or acknowledged, having three days earlier sold out the Boston Symphony Hall. The song about our messed up world grew out of that...

Track Name: Bleeding Soul (streaming version)
Bach echoes on subway walls
Violin virtuoso completely ignored
No one stops to hear him play

Spoon fed muzak saps the soul
Only listen to what they are told
Manufactured pap the mindless way

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

Jobs are lost down on their luck
Hedge fund winner makes his buck
Counting the green amassing power

Lust, avarice and wanton greed
Billions, more than they need
The minority safe in their glass towers

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

Politicians tongues dripping honey
Hands grabbing vested interest money
Whist poverty claims another life

They stand tall wrapped in the flag
Crying crocodile tears over body bags
Sent on illegal wars the government lies

Child soldier stands, holds the gun
Mines and bombs but food for none
Innocence lost as paradise burns

Another famine in far off land
Fast food people don’t understand
Man’s inhumanity to man

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

The world has a bleeding soul
This world has a bleeding soul
Our world has a bleeding soul
Band aid for a bleeding soul?
