"Vibrate (featuring Braintax)" as written by and Joseph Garnet Christie Andrew Michael Carthy....
Sham
Yeah, you can call me that
As I walk with the Luddites and my crusty axe
I'm a whole lot removed from the Domini Pax
The pacts with the church and the new poll tax
I haven't got the pox, I've turned twenty-eight
My mate's thirty-one but he's dying from the plague
Life's a bitch right now and I can still hear the hills
Resonate
Watch my carbon vibrate mate

And I'm way down the mine
In another lifetime
But I don't how this canary keeps chirping
And my lungs are tight
When you've got to keep working
What's the point in life
There's a hundred miners here in the union
March through the manor while the owner takes communion
I'm going in to get my wage for last year
Plus a big bag of food
One of them big chandeliers
I affect the state and affect the earth
And pass my spirit on again
Until it's triggered by a birth
I resonate
You Resonate
I say echo
You vibrate

I'm in this for a better life
Staying clever
Got the soldiers on the hop
Slept in the oak tree
Raided a crop
They probably think I'm catholic
'Cause of my name
I caught the King's deer
They were giving me fame
And they heard about my antics
Up at the castle
When I didn't pay my taxes
Down came the hassle
They burnt my village and my family at the stake
I felt the whole ground shake
Why?
'Cause spirits resonate
They want my pagan head
Turn the hunters in my band and that's as good as it gets
We affect
You affect
Everybody move your molecules
From your nails to your follicles
Vibrate

It's eighteen fifty-six
I'm at the workhouse with my bundle of sticks
These people think I'm nuts
But they won't complain
When their lives get better cause of my campaign
Sabotage man with the Guy Fawkes precedent
Burn the city hall - smoke out the residents
Make a mark in my town and adjust my standard of living
Till my pitchfork rusts
Change the chain
Unchain all hands
Latter-day Scargill
I'll affect this land
I come in peace
From a small piece of dark
And I'm going back soon
So for now I'll make marks
Vibrate

    General CommentI think this song is about the rebellious streak that occurs in each generation and causes changes for the better:
    I come in peace
    From a small piece of dark
    And I'm going back soon
    So for now I'll make marks
    Like something's sent from somewhere else to sort it all out:
    I affect the state and affect the earth
    And pass my spirit on again
    Until it's triggered by a birth

    The song seems to be mainly seems to be peasants having a hard time of it. Also the things they refer to - the plague, mining, poll tax, workhouses, happen quite far apart in history, so it's like that this spirit's done in the past to cause change.
