Feel our world
Fall apart
Watch our world
Watching the people I think isn't it sad
I can't help wondering why I don’t go mad
We've left behind everything good we ever had

We work and we sweat and we toil
Then we come home to bed
We laugh and we dance and we cry
Then we find ourselves dead

So you must

Come to the fair and no one will find you
Come for a ride and let yourself go
Keep at my side and no one will hurt you again

We no longer do what we are told
We no longer do what we are told
For now we are out in the cold again
While others are counting their gold
Stumbling through the pathless woods
Rapt before the shore

The Balladeers Glasgow

The Balladeers are a psychedelic 3-piece from Glasgow with an ear for timeless melody and a melting pot of sound and styles.

Medieval riffs, 60's influences, romantic poetry, nursery rhymes and carnival fairground sounds. Blues and classical arrangements intertwine with gypsy stylings, and jazz and afro-based rhythms are all thrown into this insane mix, bound together with a distinctly minor key.
