Egos and Icons

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

A thousand times before I’ve made the hour trip
Through the sheltered wooded hills, then westward to the pit
A pilgrimage of sort since the year of ‘96
Never have I been known to forego of a chance like this

As day turned to night we saw the skyline as it rose
We took now to the streets as we hastened our approach
Others waved their flag, the journey’s end was near
But never could we have know that this night would live on for years

Respect is earned from actions in hard times
But after what you displayed never will you hold mine
History repeated, I’ve seen it happen before
From icons grow egos, then we’ll see what you stand for

My stomach began to turn all but half way through the night
As a crowd began to form I knew that something wasn’t right
In one swift move the battle lines were drawn
And the message was loud and clear as to which side you were on

The scene looked familiar as you’ve been here before
The name you remembered well but the faces are a blur
You were quick to catch a breath as you stumbled through your words
But there’s nothing you had to offer that we hadn’t already heard

So when the evening’s end had come and you made your retreat
Were you to scared of a fight or to proud for defeat
As a crowd formed to wait on fair and level ground
Much to our dismay you were nowhere to be found
