about

It started after Toby May and Richard Spooner shared a conversation about the state of the world a few weeks ago, the bulk of the lyrics and musical ideas came very fast, during Richard's drive to a gig in Schaffhausen actually....he was driving and shouting lyrics over the phone to Toby who was at home with a guitar and paper & pencil!

After Toby laid the initial ideas at his studio in Geneva, Greg Arnold made some wonderful additions that really rounded up the story we were trying to tell..

Of course, in the last couple of weeks with all that’s going on, their words and music have taken on another meaning...

Toby finished the track under lock-down in his kitchen today.

lyrics

How does the Earth still spin when it’s broken?
What if the Sun don’t rise, cause it’s broken?
What happens when bees can’t fly, cause they’re broken?
We know our leaders lie, cause they’re broken..

Where will it end?
I’ve been counting all the numbers
Our world in a dead-end
I’ve been silent in my slumber
Told to hang on, keep our heads down and wait in line

Smoke from the wildfires show we’re broken
Virus & floods run rife, we’re broken
Sea water rising high, we’re broken
Has time to change passed by, are we broken?

Where will it end?
I’ve been counting all the numbers
Our world in a dead-end
I’ve been silent in my slumber
Told to hang on, keep our heads down and wait in line

Just take a stand let’s make it now
Politicians don’t know how
It’s our Planet don’t sit back
Let’s find a way to put it back
Just take the time and you will see
Let’s save our souls

Where will it end?
I heard the truth in all the numbers
Our world in a dead-end
I’ve been woken from my slumber
Don’t hang on, hold your head high, don’t wait in line

about

The Toby May Genève, Switzerland

After much soul searching and many lonely days and nights spent writing in the studio, Toby’s vision has been justified in the form of widespread industry support and healthy commercial radio airplay for his first two singles “Beautiful Skin” (as featured in the Swiss Loterie Romande Television Campaign) and “Always Wrong” ... more
