about

An excerpt from the poem by Rupert Brooke. A bit of a departure from the fairy stories theme, more of an emphatic lesson from a wise old man to a young brat. Featuring the powerful voice of Graham Redman.

lyrics

Words by Rupert Brooke
Voiced by Graham Redman

Heaven of Joy - Hell of Pain

It’s the very first word that poor Juliet heard
From her Romeo over the Styx
And the Roman will tell Cleopatra in hell
When she starts her immortal old tricks

I have risen to the uttermost Heaven of Joy
I have sunk to the sheer Hell of Pain

But it’s not going to happen again, my boy
It’s not going to happen again

Pain of Joy… my boy

about

Limpid Green Minneapolis, Minnesota

Our music always starts as impromptu sketches. Sometimes we embellish them by mixing and matching clips or by adding found- sounds. Lyrical content comes from out-of-context dialog of many diverse sources.
