about

Recorded Live at The Boatman's Cave, Ballintoy Harbour, N. Ireland

Here's the story...

Centuries ago in the Middle East, a musician was fleeing as a refugee from his powerful but insecure father-in-law over some political shenanigans. He hid in caves and wrote songs from his experiences.

His lyrics have been handed down to this day, words which have comforted and inspired generations ever since.

Songs of honest pain and desperation, songs of hope, prayers fueled by a hope of better days beyond intimidation and fear.

This project is about going into caves and recording our versions of these songs.

Am
Lying in a bed of my own making

Surrounded by dogs baying for flesh

That I cannot see my part in this mess

We scream for revenge: an eye for an eye
G F
When all of this time it’s mercy that we need

Oh my God, my hiding place

Saver of my skin

Ever gripped by your embracing wing

Take me in

Intro: | Am | | G | F |

Am
Now I am sleeping with one eye open
G F
Not really sure of who I can trust
Am
Looking over my shoulder and guarding my back
G F
Have all of my dreams turned into dust
Am
Is hope an illusion? Is love a mirage?
G F
Did we put our faith in the strength we thought we had?

Pre-chorus: | Em | | F | | x2

G Am
Oh my God, my hiding place
G Am F
Saver of my skin

Ever gripped by your embracing wing

Take me in

To your side
Em
There I’ll hide
F G Am
In the shadow of your frame

Am
Sooner or later this danger will pass
G F
I’ll be on my way out of this mess
Am
These hounds will be snared in the traps that they set
G F
I’ll finally be free from the howl of their threats

Oh my God, my hiding place

In a desperate bid to hide

Is this where it ends?

Caught up in the vacuum

Between enemies and friends
