Dead and Gone

from Purgatory, Quebec [CD] by Farler's Fury

/
  • Full Length CD
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Farler's Fury aren't your typical celtic punk band. Think punk rock with bagpipes combined with the lyrics you find deep in the soul of folk. They might be one of the hardest working bands that you need to know about. Since 2003, they've recorded 2 EPs, 2 full-lengths and over 300 shows across Canada, Europe and the Midwestern US.

    From start to finish, Farler's Fury's 2nd album Purgatory Quebec, had me dancing out the defeats and throwing away my regrets. The upbeat punk rock tempo glues you to, what feels like, a shared underlying story that unfolds one's experiences of following the fire that constantly rings in the heart. The lead guitar-like bagpipes and mandolin add a nostalgic, folk waltz backdrop to the punk ethos of my youth.

    All songs by Farler's Fury except bagpipe melodies in Common Ground, Egos and Icons, and The Queen and The Sea (Traditional)

lyrics

Statues line the rock face as the scenery flows by
A testament to the free, rites of passage marked in time
Condemned by design, the days now linger on
And the truth of it all is that free will is dead and gone

Free will is dead and gone
Condemned by design, the days now linger on
Free will is dead and gone

Uninspired architecture, inescapable gifts of status quo
A desperate gasp for breath in a sea of billboards row on row
A soul once raised by wolves now confined to its own lie
As sheep begin to rally he can’t help but wonder why

Can’t help but wonder why
A soul once raised by wolves now confined to its own lie
Can’t help but wonder why

The crosses they stand solemnly adorned with flowers and with grief
A warning of the risk, but there’s no comfort in belief
A fleeting thought of purpose quickly subdued by a sense of fate
An invitation to deceit politely declined for a chance of escape

Declined for a chance of escape
A fleeting thought of purpose subdued by a sense of fate
Declined for a chance of escape
