about

“Pop! Goes the People” was originally written and recorded in 2008, although a ‘condensed version’ of the album did not see the light of day until much later, in 2012. (Due to reasons I won’t bore folks with) 

This year sees its ten year anniversary, so I decided to pull the old ten track version, restore it to its former sixteen track glory and have the whole album remastered. For me it’s been given a new lease of life and I’ve enjoyed rediscovering these songs, which serve as an audio-diary of a time in my life that I won’t soon forget.

Track Name: Hold [2018]
Time’s got no hold on me 
You’ve got no hold on me 
They’ve got no hold on me 
I’ve got no hold on me 

Hold on 
Hold on 
Hold on, me 

I’ve got no hold on you 
They’ve got no hold you 
You’ve got no hold on you 
Time’s got no hold on you 

Hold on 
Hold on, you 

Hold on 
Hold on 
Hold on, me
Track Name: Start to Begin [2018]
Backup all your memories 
Put them in a hole 
Hide them somewhere safely 
So you never lose your soul 
Draw the curtains tightly 
Don't let the summer in 
It all adds up to something 
You can't start to begin
Track Name: Treefella [2018]
It's hard to do what you want to do 

Treefella... 

It's hard to do what you want to do 

Are you listening? 
Can you hear me? 
There's no place that I would rather be 
Than sitting up here in my tree 
Broken branches 
Building bridges 
I've been waiting here impatiently 
For you to join me up in my tree 

So... 
Throw out your goods 
Come to the woods 
& find yourself a tree 
& climb up to the top with me 

Oooh weee, I'm up in a tree... 

Are you listening? 
Can you hear me? 
It's nothing like I thought it would be 
So I'm hiding up here in my tree 

Chop my head off 
Count the rings 
& let me know just how old I am 
Cos lately I feel like an old man 

You can chop me up 
Cut me down 
But I'll be back again 
My roots are strong 
I stand alone 
No time for foolish friends 
My wooden heart 
Is strong as oak 
No medium density 

So this is where I'll be 
In my tree...
Track Name: C.O.W.A.R.D [2018]







That is what I'll always be 








Yeah you know me...
Track Name: I Won't Let You Go [2018]
Shaking like a Leaf 
Treading paper thin 
Softly spoken words 
A symptomatic grin 

I won’t let you go...
Track Name: Dust Yourself Down [2018]
If you fear the fall & fail my friend 
You can pick yourself back up again 
If the world & weight have worn you down 
Don't fool around 
Dust yourself down 
& start over 

If you wake & wonder what went wrong 
You can listen to your favourite song 
Makes you feel the world can't bring you down 
So don't fool around 
Dust yourself down 
& start over
Track Name: Little Fish [2018]
Little Fish
Track Name: A Strange Old Feelin' [2018]
I’ve got a strange old feelin’ 
That I’m not meant to be here
Track Name: Birdspotter [2018]
Birdspotter 
I can see 
Way up in the 
Big tall tree 
A little bird & he's singing just for me 

Singing out 
A lonely song 
A timeless melody 

Birdspotter 
I can hear 
A sudden sound in the bushes 
Oh so near 
It's a little bird & he's singing just for me 

Singing out 
A lonely song 
A timeless melody 

Birdspotter 
I can see 
Way up in the 
Big tall tree 
A little bird & he's singing just for me 

Singing out 
A lonely song 
A timeless melody
Track Name: Honey [2018]
You are the one 
Bright as the sun 
Alienated point of view 

You lost the plot 
& time forgot 
To bring me back closer to you 

But it's okay, Honey 
Yeah, it's alright 
I'm just going out my mind... 

Spend my days 
Doubled glazed 
Insulated hide-away 

A sticky end 
For you my friend 
Take us back to better days 

But it's okay, Honey 
Yeah, it's alright 
I'm just going out my mind...
Track Name: The King is Dead [2018]
The king is dead 
Long live the bastard 
The king is dead 
Long live the king 
Long live the bastard 
Long live the king 

They blew him up...
Track Name: Just Let it Go [2018]
Sometimes it's hard 
Sometimes it's tough 
Sometimes what you need is never enough 
Sometimes there's fear 
Sometimes there's love 

So breathe slow 
Just let it go, my love 
Breathe slow 
Tonight 

Sometimes we give 
Sometimes we take 
Sometimes everything that you feel is fake 
Sometimes we're high 
Sometimes we're low 

So breathe slow 
Just let it go, my love 
Breathe slow 
Just let it go, my love 
Breathe slow 
Tonight...
Track Name: Waiting for Weightlessness [2018]
Wait, For it... 

Weightlessness... 

The people here on earth they are all waiting 
& me I just sit staring into space 
The lost souls in their rocketships still orbiting the moon 
Don't you get your hopes up 
They wont be home anytime soon 

The wait goes... 

On & On & On & On & On... 
On & On & On & On & On... 

Waiting here for weightlessness 
Waiting here for weightlessness
Track Name: Hello Alien Sun [2018]
Hello Alien Sun
Track Name: Shutdown [2018]
Shutdown
Turn the clocks back
You’ve got a lot to answer for
Track Name: Run & Hide [2018]
Sometimes, I 
Want to 
Run & Hide 
Run & Hide 

Sometimes, I 
Want to 
Run & Hide 
Run & Hide 
Away 
From you... 

Sometimes, I 
Get a... 
Little bit lost 
Little bit lost 

So, I 
Want to 
Run & Hide 
Run & Hide 
Away from everything that I see 
Away from me...
