lyrics

BRING IT ALL BACK HOME

I´ll ride my bicycle and you´ll ride the golden balloon,
and I´ll chase you across the hillside, across this world,
across this world!
I want to hear all the jokes that they tell over there,
I want to taste all the different kinds of cakes,
I want to hold hands with new people,
and try out all the unusual hats they´re bound to have,
and maybe we´ll bring some home
and wear them out to parties, parties,
wonderful parties, where you smile and you like to,
and parties can be big and parties can be small,
like a kiss, or a firework at midday.

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

Hold on to the handles, we are going to go really really fast!
Then we will stop! and see were we are arriving,
then we will go very very s l o w l y, so we can see
the new things, the new things, the things we have never seen before,
the things we wouldn´t recognise and the things we do recognise,
like cake and people smiling,
I am sure I would recognise that where ever I went.

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

All of those lives broken and bent and still I´m modern and ambivalent,
the price of freedom is not free, thousands have died just for me,
Without the protection of the economic-military-system,
I would have been hacked to death long ago by religious bigotry,
I don´t have a soul, I sacked it, and god is the land and made of chocolate,
I believe ideas are holding us together, i believe ideas are tearing us apart,
I believe ideas are real real things, I believe ideas are just like water,
there for everyone to drink......

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

…..there´s a place for seriousness somewhere,
I think its very serious when you stop laughing,
that happens to me quite a lot, but fuck it!
I´m modern and educated, full of contradictions and very very complicated......

All of the tears, all the hungry, all the fuckwits and the presidents, all the strange habits and your callous ways, all of your tyrants and your lost children, all your generosity, all the things you just can´t bare, all your sleepless nights,
they just have a place back home, they just have a place back home,
they all have a place, oh, back home.......
FOR TODAY IS THE DAY WHEN WE BRING IT ALL BACK HOME!

about

Barnaby Tree Berlin, Germany

Performer, musician (cello, voice and piano), artist and writer.

I am driven to see what can be done with the bare bones, with just the body and acoustic sound; just the air between the performer and the audience. The physicality of song; the sweat and blood of the noise.

I am a cellist that sings and a pianist that dances.
