about

this sing is about how we offload what were once our precious and personal objects to charity shops and antique shops. in one way they could be described as places with Dead people's things for sale, where they become no more than Mundane things whose true story is lost.
the central section is an experiment of sounds, noises, things, happenings and experiences which could define our lives blended together to tell a new story

The Room of MUndane THings

DEad PEople’s THings for SAle


V1.

Coins jingle, tables groan, with weighty piles of things unknown

Cries of ‘Welcome’! A call to arms. Bangles, beads and bloody charms

Waste not want not, who’s to lose? When we drift upon that last silent cruise

Conscience hidden, a likely tale. When it’s time for dead people’s things for sale


V2.

Such a loss, such a loss. Everything gone on a simple coin toss

Nothing left but rags and bags, a whole life story, told in dross

Good as new, old as sin, taken and sorted on rack and bale

Bargains bought, good causes sought, when it’s time for dead people’s things for sale



Chorus

Dead people’s things for sale

Dead people’s things for sale

Anything we’ve got from diamond to cotton

Everything must go, a life forgotten









V3.

The things we bought, we loved, we cherished

The things we lived for till we perished

The perfect gift that meant so much

A memory lost, beyond our touch
