about

More and more walls are going up around the world. Whether it’s Donald Trump’s idea for a great wall of Mexico or the Calais fence, stories of structures or barriers that separate one people from another fill the airwaves and screens of the world’s daily news. On my Island utopia, child-like as it may be, the walls would all come down.

lyrics

Bring down the wall break it stone by stone
Bring down the wall shake it to the bone

Tear down the rock take it blow by blow
Tear down the rock make the tear go slow

Throw down your arms believers hell fire burn
Throw down your arms believers turn by turn

Put down the book burn it page by page
Put down the book let the fire rage

Bring down the wall break it run aground
Bring down the wall shake it must come down

I’ll keep the flame burning burning bright
I’ll keep the flame burning shine your light

Veni lassa la casa toa
Iessi fore veni cu nui
Ca salimu subbra sta nave
N’autra voce vulimu a quai

Ci uei cangi la vita toa
Nu restare bloccatu a ddhai
Tira ientu pe navigare
Ni nde sciamu de paru moi

Bring down the wall break it stone by stone
Bring down the wall shake it to the bone

Tear down the rock take it blow by blow
Tear down the rock make the tear go slow

I’ll keep the flame burning burning bright
I’ll keep the flame burning shine your light

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
