About this track.

In a response to the challenges facing humanity and the increasing feeling of isolation throughout the planet, Ramage Inc, their fans and over 30 musicians from around the world have united to bring us their latest release “A Quiet Earth”.
All proceeds, on a “donate what you want” basis will go to the charity Doctors without Borders.

Ramage Inc, known for their ambitious and grand scale productions, have cited this as their biggest and most challenging project to date, bringing musicians, all in lockdown, together on this one recording. 

Not only that, the band took to social media to invite their fans to get involved and writing the lyrics.

The Band says: “Quiet Earth explores a distillation and the emotional impact of the isolation experienced by the world in lockdown. We wanted to bring a collective of talent together who are currently experiencing their own version of isolation, as well as the direct connection and input from the fans, who have been incredible themselves in this project too”.

As well as a collaboration of over 30 musicians the idea expanded beyond the traditions that we would expect to see, and in addition to the Guitar and Drums we saw an exciting array including Cuatro, Oil Drums, Timpani and a Lyre.

lyrics

Lyrics

Uneasy in the still
on board a quiet earth.
Reeling round an emptiness
a silent giant turns.
People across the land
questioning their worth.
A world in isolation
waiting for rebirth


No sound but the longing of Gaia's hurt,
No longing but the sound of Gaia's fight!


A vessel that we can't control
just to be observed.
Walls are moving closer,
only silence to be heard.
Moving without feeling
since its creation and our birth
hardship always follows.
The silent screams unheard


Drifting through the wilderness
of the streets I used to know.
Just footprints in dust
that's all that remains of us


Yet the Earth keeps spinning
and we scream to get off.
We're just relics from a time when
We thought we knew our worth.
Confused by eternal silence
decay permeates this curse.
No destination is in sight
on a journey to find worth

No sound but the longing of Gaia's hurt,
No longing but the sound of Gaia's fight!

Drifting through the wilderness
of the streets I used to know.
Just footprints in dust
that's all that remains of us
