lyrics

Chains

Each man here has a chain of his own
A chain of his own to wear
Each man here has a chain of his own
And on every link is a deep imprint
Telling how the thing was made
Tradition, tradition, the first link is tradition
The tie as old as it is strong
And links onto the next one along

Each man here wears a chain of his own
Forged as the years go by
Each man here wears a chain of his own
Maybe handed down in the family
A deep imprint upon every link
Telling how the thing was made
Religion, religion, the next link is religion
A tie as old as it is strong
Linked in to tradition

Each man here wears a chain of his own
Which grows as the years go by
Add to it all his deeds great and small
Like a maker's print upon every link
Telling how the thing was made
Nation, nation, the next link is his nation
The link that unites and also divides
As it joins onto the next one along
The next one along is religion
Linked in to tradition

If a man should wish to lose his chain
To lose his chain and be free
If a man should wish to lose his chain
He must look at each link for a flaw or a kink
That is where the chain might break
His mission, his mission, this becomes his mission
To examine each link for the flaw or the kink
A way to be free from his chain

His vision, his vision, this becomes his vision
As he sees that each link has a flaw or a kink
A man can be free from his chain

about

Glyn Bailey UK

It takes particular life level of experience to produce an album like 2059. Growing up in a shabby sea-side town, absorbing old films and half-digested biographies, various faltering careers (bed salesman, MP's assistant), are the backdrop to his music. Nowadays Glyn can been seen performing live with longstanding musical partner Phil Senior on bass and Lizz Beahan on violin as 'The Beholden'. ... more
