So cold is the marble Hides the fist with which you rule High up on your statue Its natural that you'll fall Its natural that you'll fall How wide, how deep Is the present to keep? How wide, how deep? What is ours to keep? So cold, the marble Hides the fear with which you rule High up on your pedestal You watch others die in dust You watch others die in dust Upon this cruelty, we have built The myth of progress Raining stones, ash will cover us, Over comes a cloud Raining stones, ash will cover us, Over comes a cloud Its natural, that we fall Like layers upon the ground Some land upon the top While others die in dust While others die in dust We'll make order from the chaos That surrounds us, surrounds us Upon this cruelty, we have built The myth of progress Raining stones, ash will cover us, Over comes a cloud Raining stones, ash will cover us, Over comes a cloud We'll make order from the chaos That surrounds us, surrounds us x4 Ee eh ay eh, ee eh ay eh x4 We'll make order from the chaos That surrounds us, surrounds us x4 Ee eh ay eh, ee eh ay eh x4

about

The blistering new single from Caulbearers veers from discordant, dystopian breaks & piercing guitars to soulful yet gritty funk. The song builds to a crescendo as the battle between 'the order and chaos' of the lyrics plays out through the strings, horns, distorted textures and layered voices of Damien Mahoney & Ruth Blake.
The words are a call to lift the veil of nobility, pride and entitlement that empires throughout time have often hidden their violent & oppressive actions behind. The song asks if we can be conscious enough to see these shadowy impulses and desires in ourselves and not only look to blame others for their actions.
