Now meet me on the pier tonight, when the tide is high You wear your dress I’ll bring the wine we’ll dance before we die See the children down below just playing in the sand Laughing at their castles as they crumble in their hands - Take my hand – take my hand What’s to become of us And if you say you love me now are you just being kind Thinking that I need someone to prove this love is blind Dancing right beside me girl to the end of this pier End Of The Pier There ain’t no picture postcard left, to wish that you were here Always here – Always here What’s to become of us The skin upon my feet and for the demons I defeat and for love Forsaking all I break and for all of my mistakes and for love What’s to be come of us Now every soul that’s gathered here upon this pier tonight Wishing they’d been lovers once, or maybe even twice Now the final sun it sets and all the clouds are burned My lips are dry and I cant cry this tide is on the turn – So we turn – and so we turn What’s to become of us The skin upon my feet and for the demons I defeat and for love Forsaking all I break and for all of my mistakes and for love

Dancing On Ice An Iron points its finger, There’s a Red flag against a blue sky She wears a red shawl And she is dancing on ice Dancing on ice She’s down and dancing on ice There are Angels flying from this city Up to their father’s home Leave us blind and naked Dancing on our own Dancing on ice They’re down and dancing on ice The light may come and light may go But there’s always one last chance I’ll look for you in the shadows As you’re dancing on ice… I am a black and white prophet Singing of the flood I am safe upon this highest branch While you are dancing in the woods Dancing on ice He’s down and dancing on ice Come take my hand Out through the gates Out of this city When the ice began to break Dancing on ice We’re down and dancing on ice The light may come and light may go But there’s always one last chance I’ll look for you in the shadows As you’re dancing on ice…

Here Comes The Rain Jesus and the lame – Joan and the flames Water becalmed – albatross hung The animals run from the rain… There’s a guy named Noah in the park He’s collecting wood to build his ark He’s says it’s gonna rain today And if your not aboard you’d better pray There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain! Jonah don’t you come aboard I’ve heard about you’re trips abroad This ain’t no channel ferry home Go finds some fishes belly Jo There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain! Old mariner your not allowed To shoot no crossbow from my bow I’m looking for a dove above Who’s looking for a lot of love There’s no one else to blame – Here comes the rain! Jesus and the lame – Joan and the flames Water becalmed – albatross hung The animals run from the rain… Here comes the rain – here comes the rain – here comes the rain….

Jonah 03:18
Jonah I’m Jonah, I ain’t a loner That’s just my name now Don’t wear it out! I’m Jonah I don’t answer the phone I I know who’s calling Hey there’s no need to shout! Hey there’s no need to shout! Hey there’s no need to shout! Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me You tell me. You really need me To go and pray for the city of the vain I disagree now, I’m off to see now I’ll take my leave now Find somebody else! Find somebody else! Find somebody else! Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me Oh, so I set sail! Oh, I’m in the belly of a whale! Oh, I’m a drowning man, Oh won’t you lift me, Put me back on the ground Find somebody else! Find somebody else! Cos it ain’t me who sees what you see in me

about

End Of The Pier, By Sir Silence And The Hush

On the 14th of March 2015, Sir Silence And The Hush are set to release a digital 4 track EP, End OF The Pier on Hushland Records.

End of The Pier EP is a collection of toe-tapping, post apocalyptic folk-rock-roots tunes that have drawn their inspiration from the imagined world of Charlie Hush, the main protagonist in Bill Taylor-Beales debut novel Kite.
The songs chart themes of ‘End Times’ both in terms of unending rain and devastation through climate change, as well a ‘tongue in cheek’ biblical narrative. As a character, Charlie Hush finds himself on the end of the South Parade Pier, with a hotel copy of a Gideon Bible and a pack of tarot cards conversing with the dead souls of those who accidently or deliberately never made it back to shore. He later finds himself to be a victim of a terrifying climate induced event creating a personal apocalyptic scenario to add weight to his many imagined versions. The lyrics are written from the perspective of Charlie’s world with his folk, rabble roots band.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Bill and Rachel Taylor-Beales in their Hushland studio, the EP features an eclectic array of musicians including Paul Gray (former Damned/UFO/Eddie and The Hotrods) on bass.
Lucy Rivers provides violin and Stacey Blythe plays accordion. Their folk-roots melodies crossing over in dialogue and at times almost playfully jousting each other. Percussion from Shane Beales, and a guest appearance on tambourine from Melbourne based Kim Beales serve to make the collection into a family affair, with Bill and Rachel Taylor-Beales supplementing the rest of the instrumentation and vocal arrangements.

On the 14th of March 2015 Bill Taylor-Beales will be celebrating his 50th birthday and has decided to release End Of The Pier to coincide with this!
Please accept his invitation to join in the celebrations by downloading End Of The Pier from sirsilenceandthehush.bandcamp.com
(available from 14/03/2015)
