    Ted Mason new track will be on new release end of year Mi5 Recordings. Needs to be remixed. I play bass, guitars, produce, arrange strings and of course vocals and song writing. Song is about my Father, he was British, my mom Nicaraguan. We grew up in the 60's before civil rights was real. He was the man who would be King in the family. He was also the man that traveled, that help the British Empire conquer. He was very lonely, he was very much like Henry Mortan Stanley who helped coin the bigoted title Deepest Darkest Africa. The key to England colonizing the world would be in the class system that did not allow people like my father to prosper but they could go to the farthest reaches of the empire and they would be King because they were English. White and ran things in India, Burma, half of Africa etc. But God forbid if you Married a WOG, you could never go back to England. Well... my Dad did marry a Wog, my mother was from Central America. Made for an unhappy relationship with England and his parents. so that is what the lyrics are about, my Dad and Henry Mortan Stanley.

    Blind is the alley
    under the church spire
    HM Stanley was born

    a fatherless child
    a workhouse escape
    shipped out for a
    blue new world

    he would be king
    would you be king

    when you get there
    what will you take
    what did you share for you love

    deep in your jungle
    did you find your happiness
    what you have found black
    may just be the light you have missed
    one door is opened the one you closed.

    If not for his country
    Merchant and Ivory
    self made road
    to the crown

    An African story
    rubber to glory
    all for a pound of gold
