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

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
'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

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

    General CommentSuch a cool song!

    This draws a parallel between the Luddite movement of the 1800s - [who were opposed to the new technology of the industrial revolution becasue they were missing out on making money from their tranitional industries - now the termis derogatory towards 'techno-phbes' ] and Arthur Scargill who led the miners stirke in the 80's and binds it altogther with the use of carbon - both in the coal and in our bodies.

    An essay could be written on this song it's like a poem,.great beat too.

    General Commentplus it like in support of those rocking the boat in favour of making a mark - afterall life is such a transitory blip in contrast to pure carbon like diamonds which are eternal. Amazing song!
