The latest single from UK singer songwriter Greg Blackman which celebrates his departure from a path of strictly soul music. Land Of The Dead is a track written back in 2013 and is released now to celebrate/mourn the inevitable outcome of the next general election.

lyrics

Let me tell you about the man I met
upon my doorstep the other day
he said I had to come pledge my allegiance
to his friends and their political way
he told me political risible friends needed cash real quick
cos they had a lot to do
they work to do improving up the life of me and the life of you

and he had a look that was in his eye
that some people get when they are high
the truth be told I was terrified
but I knew that I had to try and be polite

I said:
I know that you believe it but I just don't buy it
I don't believe you're lying but I just don't buy it
I know that you believe it but I just don't buy it
I don't believe you're lying but I just don't buy it

Well people if you're seeking for your sanity
you'd better search somewhere else instead
If you're looking for a helping hand or even just a place to stand
TOO BAD! You're walking in the land of the dead.

Well people if you're seeking for humanity
you'd better search somewhere else instead
if you're looking life, hope or music that's dope
TOO BAD! You're walking in the land of the dead.

It wouldn't be so bad if we hadn't asked for it.

Well let me tell you about the man I met
when I was walking all around the bend
he said I had to come give him money
for him to give to his invisible friend

He told me his invisible risible friend needed cash real quick
cos he had a lot to do
he had work to do changing up the life of me and the life of you

So I told him, bro:
I know that you believe it but I just don't buy it
I don't believe you're lying but I just don't buy it
I know that you believe it but I just don't buy it
I don't believe you're lying but I just don't buy it

Well people if you're seeking for your sanity
you'd better search somewhere else instead
If you're looking for a helping hand or even just a place to stand
TOO BAD! You're walking in the land of the dead.

Well people if you're seeking for humanity
you'd better search somewhere else instead
if you're looking life, hope or music that's dope
TOO BAD! You're walking in the land of the dead.
