Why do people sit behind their computers and make these big statements about these people fleeing from a situation we can’t possibly understand. If I was at risk for expressing my views, religion, being the wrong religion, being homosexual, staying at home for the rest of my life…and the punishment in all of these cases being death..I think might be jumping on a boat to fucking wherever, where there are no guns and im not at risk of being blown to bits when I walk down Oliver Plunkett street or at risk of being blown up for playing fucking music. Please before u sit down in front of your computer to judge, take a walk down the street and consider those faces you see everyday and know as a “foreigner’ and maybe consider why they left their own country and maybe life isn;t great for them here or wherever they are but its better than getting a fucking gun to the head potentially every day.
So measure me up and pin me down,
measure me up and pin me down,
these are not tears of joy,
these are not tears of joy,
So take my hand let it go,
so take my hand let it go,
time to say goodbye,
time to say goodbye
Face down we reached the new world,
face down we reached the new world,
All of our prayers worked,
So why is it so dark..
Come , come , Come they said,
but just don’t stay…just don’t stay…
Why won’t they help us,
Mum, why won’t they help us,
We’ve come this far,
We’ve come this far….
When this is over,
When this is gone,
When the heavens open,
I think of when we were young,
not one day passes,
the nights seem very long,
Bitter words become bitter years,
Bitter years become floods of tears,
For the years, the memories
that will not be ours,
but someone elses, I have to watch from afar.

20. Tony Fitz – Just Another Day
With Just Another Day songwriter Tony Fitz merges two usually disparate art forms (music & graphic novels) into an innovative work that creates a sprawling widescreen soundscape, tinged with alternative-country flourishes, while also conveying the stark beauty seen in Tommie Kelly’s artwork.
19. Sissy – Sissy
Uncompromising and exhilarating in its feral garage-rock sound, Sissy’s debut E.P. works as an irrepressibly individual take on the genre and establishes the three-piece as an exciting new prospect going into 2015.
