about

*** The proceeds from the sale of this single will be donated to The Campaign Against Antisemitism (antisemitism.uk) ***

This song was written in January 2015 shortly after the news of the attack on Charlie Hebdo's office, and a Kosher supermarket. During the course of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the murderers targeted only one woman: the Jewish writer, Elsa Cayat " In November, Paris faced a shocking reprise of terror. These acts of slaughter, as bookends to 2015, presage an era of horror, and a shift within our culture, that impacts us all

Track Name: After Charlie
The Jews are hiding in cupboards
from men searching for them with guns
this is not occupied Europe
in 1941
This is the present day
This is contemporary
Jews are hiding in cupboards
Reliving history

Jews are dying on pavements
In Paris on the Rue de Rosiers
Dying in my lifetime
There's indifference and despair
This is our present day
This is the time that's come
Now Jews are hiding in cupboards
Modernity's undone.

This is not ordinary
there is no state of war
but Jews are hiding in closets
with men breaking down the door

The Jews are hiding in cupboards
from men searching for them with guns
now Jews are hiding in cupboards
What have we done?
Track Name: After Charlie (Extended Version)
The Jews are hiding in cupboards
from men searching for them with guns
this is not occupied Europe

This is the present day
This is contemporary
Jews are hiding in cupboards
Reliving history

Jews are dying on pavements
In Paris on the Rue de Rosiers
Dying in my lifetime
There's indifference and despair
This is our present day
This is the time that's come
Now Jews are hiding in cupboards
Modernity's undone.

This is not ordinary
there is no state of war
but Jews are hiding in closets
with men breaking down the door

The Jews are hiding in cupboards
from men searching for them with guns
now Jews are hiding in cupboards
