about

My fourth full length studio album, containing songs written and recorded over the last couple of years. It's quite eclectic in style and no record label would probably know how to market it, but that's fine by me. I like to write songs and try new things and feel this collection is quite different to the last.

I hope you enjoy it. If you do, or you have any questions/comments, feel free to get in touch via my website (www.ianpeacockmusic.com), facebook, email (theepeacocks@hotmail.com) or in person!

Track Name: Love Will Never Fail
Love, love is patient, love is kind,
Throws its body on the line, transcends space and time
And love, love was hung upon a cross,
Came to seek and save the lost,
Paid the highest cost in blood

Faith, hope and love - all yours for free
Faith, hope and love - choose from just three
Faith, hope and love - how it's plain to see
Faith, hope and love - love's reigns supreme

Keep the faith, move a mountain
Holding hope like a fountain
Overall, love is constant
It will never fail
Track Name: One By One
One by one by one
You've lost more than you've won
Your happiness is gone
One by one by one
The changes have begun and you know your time has come

Stepping on heads, jumping in beds
Risking your life to get out of the red
Papering cracks, stabbing in backs
Building up money just to buy what you lack
What will it take for you to break
free from the chains of this mould that you've made

One by one by one
You've lost more than you've won
Your happiness is gone
One by one by one
The changes have begun and you know your time has come

Two thirds or the world on a pound a day
And you keep two cars in your drive way
Two percent of the population take the doe
While the rest still lament as they reap and sow
You're told that you're looking after number one
Turn round and you wonder where you friends have gone
You strive to survive in the rat-race
Fat cats wipe the smile from your fat face
Track Name: Fight The Good Fight
Let there be music, let there be food,
let there be beauty, let there be truth, whatever is lovely, whatever is pure,
If there be hatred, may love be the cure

In the dark of the night there is a light
for every valley there is a mountain high

So keep on believing, though you be grieving, hope will restore your sight
Learn from your lesson, share all your blessings, keep fighting the good fight

Keeping an eye out for goodness,
and keeping an ear for what's sound,
making a space for forgiveness,
taking it as all holy ground,
We're making a strong case for justice,
We're making a quest now for peace,
Praying for people imprisoned,
Calling the poor to the feast
Track Name: Still Human, Still Here
Walk a mile in the sandals, feel the scandal of a lost soul
Left my home, fled the violence, sought aslyum in a new world
Packed my hopes in a rucksack, walked the train track to the border
Paid a price, forged a passport, pray I’m not caught by the law force
Squeezed inside a container, now a sailor on a lone voyage

Still human, I’m still here, still living with my fear
You might wish I’d disappear, I’m still breathing, I’m still here
Still human, I’m still here, still drowning in these tears
And though freedom is so near, I’m still shackled, I’m still here
Still human, I’m still here, still human, I’m still here, still human,
I’m still here, still human

Been a while in a strange place, with a court case undecided
Gave my file to a law firm, but the short term, I’m just stranded
Tried to prove I’m in danger, but a stranger can’t be trusted
And as I wait with no meaning and no money I go hungry
I go hungry…
Track Name: An Endless Fight
There once was a time when a lie wasn't black or white
When sin had a name, not a game, there was wrong or right

But oh how the soul can be blinded, binded, trapped inside a hole
We deny it, hide it, circumcise it

Try as I might be the light, there's an endless fight
For the things I wanna do seem so hard to do
And everything I hate sticks to me like glue
And every time I feel that I'm standing tall
The higher the height and the bigger the fall
Track Name: Never Be The Same
Overwhelmed I strive for more
Don't know what I'm looking for
Here my heart will find a home
Justified by faith alone

And things will never be the same....
Track Name: Sold Down The River
Danger on every side
When greed and religion collide
Innocent people will die
Looking for places to hide

I saw you shiver, you lips start to quiver - so long
Stuck in the middle of some place where you don't belong

You take advantage of war
Steeling the land from the poor
Chaos has opened its door
Refugees swimming for shore

I saw you shiver, you lips start to quiver - so long
Stuck in the middle of some place where we don't belong
Paid and delivered a six digit figure - It's wrong
Sold down the river but we'll still be singing a song
Track Name: Interstellar Voyage
Bleary eyed I meet the morning, freezing cold my naked body
Polyester, wool or cotton, summer sun is long forgotten

Winds are blowing, leaves are falling,
Sun is fading, nights are longing
All the city streets are crawling,
Hands and feet need winter warming

A satalite receiving nothing, the engine cold the motor stalling
Floating without fear of falling, on an interstellar voyage home to you, home to you

When I come home to blazing fires,
Will I come home to your desire?

Far beyond the earth in orbit, galaxies and blazing comets
Stary eyed, my heart is longing on an interstellar voyage home to you, home to you
Coming home to you, home to you

When I come home to blazing fires, will I come home to your desire?
Track Name: Only In The Night Time
Grow old, cold, only at the right time
Bought , sold, but only for the right price
Truth, lies, spies, only through the right eyes
Black, white, grey, heaven knows, you decide

Rubber hits the road, rocks begins to roll, slipping down the slope
Culture can corrode, will we explode?

Fear, we're here, only in the night time
Dreams, memes, seems everything is alright
Heat, sweet, keep bottling it up inside
Fall, crawl, sprawl, earth and comets will collide

Rubber hits the road,
rocks begins to roll,
slipping down the slope
Culture can corrode,
Will we explode if we're all alone origins unknown
Who will you phone, you're just a drone

Everything is alright
Only in the night time
Track Name: When The Saints Go Marching In
Oh Lord Oh, Oh Lord Oh, Sow Lord Sow, Grow Lord Grow....

You've got the law but it's so hard to keep it
You know the truth but it's hard to believe it
So keep running the road you've been given
And keep your eyes on the prize, not the prison

In the soil there's weeds with the wheat
In every heart there's trust and deceite
But don't bow to fear or suspicion
As you sow in tears there's fruition
