about

Skinner & T'witch's new single, 'Start Again With Eden', is a pre-release from their forthcoming folk-rock album, 'The Songcatcher', due out in the summer.

The song takes a look at the state of modern society, and looks forward to a better world, inspired by the concept of Eden.

Featuring the marvellous Hugh Bradley on bass and mandolin, Joshua Burnell on keys, John Arneson on drums, and John Rodgers on lead guitar.

lyrics

Take me back ten thousand years, when human dreams were forming
New grasses grew across the earth and forests were a warming
We lived off roots and berries then, hunting boar and deer
We never fought for gods or men, we never walked in fear 

Start again with Eden, we need another birth
Start again with Eden, the turning of the earth

Take me back one hundred years, to the poppy fields of France
Men rise up from the trenches, for another mad advance
In mud and blood as bullets fly, they run towards the wire
Young lives are lost beneath the sky, as machine guns open fire

Start again with Eden, we need another birth
Start again with Eden, the turning of the earth

Look around us nowadays, the homeless on the street
Food banks in our cities, poor kids no food to eat
Plastic chokes the seven seas, the jungle’s nearly gone
East and west are enemies, and never breathe as one

Start again with Eden, we need another birth
Start again with Eden, the turning of the earth
Start again with Eden, feel the magic turn
Start again with Eden, we need to love and learn

Look ahead one hundred years, is wisdom in our eye?
The super-rich still pulling strings, the earth now burning dry?

Across the changing centuries, what dreams did we achieve?
With hope and heaven on their knees, what truth do I believe?

Start again with Eden
Start again with Eden
Start again with Eden, feel the magic turn
Start again with Eden, but this time we love and learn
Love and learn
