Great vocal from Paul again. Very powerful and emotive with a lot of the pulse being deployed on the crash and China cymbals with a lot of triplet feel fills throughout the song.
More distressing bass please….. Go on Greame….. “25 true honest men” is there such a thing?
You better hope there is cause time is running out real quick here.
This track has its own thing going on and I cant nail it down but it sure is big.
One of my favourites. Powerful, authoritative, suddenly delicate – very much in the Pallas style.
This kicks off with a wonderful piece of orchestral magic from Ron. I really enjoy the tense atmosphere of this track. It goes so well with the lyric.
This track represents a turning point in the Sentinel’s mission. He has won over the minds of the young but realises that politicians are incapable of agreement and it’s time to put forward his suggestion for a way forward.
This is also however an ultimatum. I think this is a great tension builder and love the throbbing feel.
For me, there is something about the chording that sends shivers up my spine. I love the latent power of this track.
The piano arpeggio was from an idea that Ronnie and myself had been working on for some time before.
Cling on to life, cling on to hope
Cling to your future on the end of a burning rope
Should you choose to light the fuse
And ignore that for which I labour
I’ll see you burning bright
In the night sky of your neighbours
Is this the final act of your sad and sorry play
You took our gift of Paradise and you threw it all awa
Like a mini supernova you'll be over in a flash
Turn your history, your culture and your children into ash….
Twenty five true honest men
To rule your world with wisdom
We can all begin again
Give me Twenty Five, good honest men
We've saved your world before
We can save you once again…
I am no God, I am just a man
But your reticence to listen, calls for a totally different plan
I have a mission to judge you,
From a higher intellectual plain
To decide if you are worthy, if your existence will remain
You must cease the endless bickering and find a different way
If you fail to heed these warnings, I will sweep you all away
You have twenty five short hours to comply with all I say
Any semblance of a failure and this will be your final day
Give me Twenty Five true honest men
None can corrupt or interrupt
In pursuance of this plan
Just Twenty Five to dedicate their lives
To lead you, to guide you, to a future filled with light
