Drop The Bomb

from by Sam Carter

/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    'This is a bittersweet folk-electric concept album, influenced by his time spent in London, and the songs range from the slow and personal From the South Bank to Soho, which features exquisite viola work from Sam Sweeney, to the remarkable Drop the Bomb, which starts as a gentle ballad backed by the piano of Neil Cowley (of Adele fame) and ends as a furious electric guitar workout.’ **** The Guardian

    '‘…like one of his heroes Richard Thompson, Carter has the ability to enthral with just one climactic chord when he moves effortlessly into rock guitar mode and the jagged contrast with his softer side makes it all the more effective' fRoots

lyrics

So I thought the whole thing through
Now there's nothing left to do
It’s time to set it off
It’s time to drop the bomb

Just a lone dissenting voice
Who can see no other choice
It’s time to set it off
It’s time to drop the bomb

Sure there's nothing for me here
But there's nothing left to fear
It's time to set it off
It's time to drop the bomb

I'll block out the cries and screams
Smash it all to smithereens
It’s time to set it off
It’s time to drop the bomb

Drop the bomb, drop the bomb
Blow it all to kingdom come
It’s time to set it off
It's time to drop the bomb

Break it up and tear it down
Raise the whole thing to the ground
It’s time to set it off
It’s time to drop the bomb

And I'm building something new
Where I'll get a better view
It's time to set it off
It's time to drop the bomb

Drop the bomb, drop the bomb
Blow it all to kingdom come
It’s time to set it off
It's time to drop the bomb
