African Skies

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

The third track off our new album has just been released today - it's called African Skies - this track means quite a lot to us as we love Africa and Africans and spend a great deal of time in Africa. But    what goes on can be very dispiriting at times, . One of these days, hopefully Africa will start to produce leaders who aren't just thieves    and despots!!

Anyway here's the track, hope you enjoy

Nigel

 

African Skies 

Swirling across

The arid Plain

Dust taints the sky

Water holes dry

Crops all gone

Just waiting for

Time to die

 

African skies

Majestic and cruel

Save your remorse

For tomorrow

African skies

Mountains so tall

Earth blood red

With sorrow

 

Struggles continue

Over the Land

Slaughter night and day

Some people claim

The Land is theirs

But history's in the way

 

African skies

Majestic and cruel

Save your remorse

For tomorrow

African skies

Mountains so tall

Earth blood red

With sorrow

 

Now it’s time

To count the cost

Hate and intolerance abide

Corruption means

Poverty and death

People just try to survive

 

 

African skies

Majestic and cruel

Save your remorse

For tomorrow

African skies

Mountains so tall

Earth blood red

With sorrow

You got your sentiment across very well in the video and lyrics. The vocalist's performance is excellent.
Life in Africa depends on whoever is in control and some of the leaders have been beyond despotic. Much of the continent is beautiful - the landscape and the people so it's especially tragic when an oppressive government takes over.

Excellent!!!  The music is most impressive as is the vocal performance.  The music has a very majestic sound that certainly complements very poignant lyrics.  All of this in turn is complemented by a very impressive.  Good luck with the album!

I liked it...   As mentioned above it got the point across well, while at the same time almost having a sort of sad Celtic feel.    Nice.

It's a beautiful song and a beautiful recording.

Wow, I think the vocal performance is simply amazing. Can you tell us who the singer is ? The synthesizer work is also top shelf, new age to my ears.

Sorry, I don't even want to categorize this one, I just thoroughly enjoyed listening to it !

Cheers
