"Harmony No Harmony" as written by Francis Edward Turner, Benjamin Russell Erring Dawson, Thomas Russell Fowler and Julia Ruzicka....
When the last of the echoes fades,
When the cymbals and the strings
Have died away,
When I am left with just

The ringing in my ears,
I take a breath and I settle down,
I try to count the things
That really count.

To figure out what I've done
With the last few years.
I grew up in the countryside-
There I could have lived,

And I could have died,
I could have had running water
And security.
But I took a train up to London town,

Lost my money and
Immersed myself in sound-
In lame jobs, late nights,
Poor diets and poverty.

And after all the struggle
And the strain
And after all the loss for little gain,
The harmonies have faded away,
But the melody remains.

    General Commentthe last song on the last million dead album, could this be more beautiful or fitting? i somehow think not. its about looking back at what you've done in the last few years and thinking whether it was actually worth anything. a hint at Frank Turner's new direction. check out his solo stuff-its so very good.
