about

Woods of Birnam Germany

A deep dark forest, an icy wind. In the flickering lights beneath an age-old oak tree, a man is dancing lost in reverie. He is the Redeemer walking the earth, or so he thinks. “The Healer” is the debut single by Woods Of Birnam – a  band, based in Dresden, Germany, around singer and actor Christian Friedel. It’s a Michael Jackson-groove whirling among the constricting minor chords of Radiohead. ... more

Track Name: I´ll Call Thee Hamlet
angels and ministers of grace defend us!
be thou a spirit of health or goblin damn’d,
bring with thee airs from heaven or blasts from hell, be thy intents wicked or charitable,
thou com’st in such a questionable shape
that I will speak to thee – speak to thee – speak to thee
speak to thee – speak to thee

I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet, o answer me.

it will not speak, then I will follow it –
follow it I do not set my life at a pin‘s fee,
and for my soul, what can it do to that,
and for my soul, what can it do to that,
being a thing immortal as itself;
it waves me forth again – forth again – forth again,
I’ll follow it. – (I’ll) follow it. – (I’ll) follow it.

I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet,
king, father, royal Dane / king, father, royal Dane.
o answer me.

what may this mean, that thou. /
dead corse, again in complete steel
revisits thus the glimpses of the moon, /
making night hideous / and we fools of nature
so horridly to shake our disposition - our disposition / with thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls?
with thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls? /
say why is this? wherefore?
say why is this? wherefore?

I’ll call thee Hamlet / I’ll call thee Hamlet,
king, father, royal Dane / king, father, royal Dane.
Track Name: The Healer
stay ‚till I know, ‚till you show, who is the leader
please let me cope, give me hope, I shall receive
why would I sway, should I play, the roman heathen
fall on my sword, so you know, that I believe
I will follow you through deserts
(I will) follow through the snow
I am dancing madly sideways
I am falling in slow-mo

although you know
I won‘t let go

and still I grow, and I know, there is a healer all,
saints and scum, come undone, I am his son
I will bless you in the desert
I will bless you in the snow
you‘ll be dancing madly sideways
I will send you down below

until I know
you can let go
the time has come for healers
the time has come – for us

until I know
you can let go
the time has come for healers
the time has come – for us until I know you can let go
the time has come for healers
the time has come – for what?
Track Name: Woods of Birnam
out all
all our yesterdays
have lighted fools
out, out brief candle!
‘morrow and tomorrow
fretting on stage
then is heard no more

life is but a poor player
life is but a tale
full of sound and fury and exuberance
told to us by an idiot
who stands upon the stage and then
then is heard no more

a tale
the way to dusty death
from day to day
signifying nothing
‘morrow and tomorrow
strutting on stage
‘till the last syllable of time

life is but a poor player
life is but a tale
full of sound and fury and exuberance
told to us by an idiot
who stands upon the stage and then
then is heard no more
