about

The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy (aka the Charlie Tipper Experiment) Bristol, UK

The band began life as The Charlie Tipper Experiment in 2013, releasing an album and a clutch of singles for Breaking Down Recordings.

In 2015 the band became The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy for no real reason other than they thought it would be a good idea to keep people guessing as to what they were up to.

Track Name: Drowning (London Mix)
THE LIGHT CATCHES THE WATER
WE’RE IN A DIFFERENT QUARTER
THE CITY’S LOOKING FINE AND SO ARE YOU

THE WATER’S UP TO THE WASTELINE
THE CITY’S SHUTTERS ARE CALLING TIME
BUT I’VE GOT TIME TO SPARE AND SO HAVE YOU

I FEEL THE WINTER WIND IT CUTS THROUGH MY VEINS
YOU’RE WEARING EXTRA LAYERS BUT FEEL JUST THE SAME

WE’RE LIKE LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER
IT’S FLOWING OVER THE BORDER
I’LL SAVE WHAT I CAN AND SO SHOULD YOU

THE WATER’S UP TO THE WASTELINE
THE CITY’S SHUTTERS ARE CALLING TIME
I’M GLAD I FOUND SOME TIME TO BE WITH YOU

I FEEL THE WINTER WIND IT CUTS THROUGH MY VEINS
YOU LOOK A DIFFERENT WAY BUT FEEL JUST THE SAME
I’M READING NEWS REPORTS THEY’VE DOWNED ANOTHER PLANE
SO GIVE ME A CORNER OF A ROOM TO GO INSANE

THE LIGHT CATCHES THE WATER
WE SMILE BACK AT EACH OTHER
THE CITY’S LOOKING FINE AND SO ARE YOU

I FEEL THE WINTER WIND IT CUTS THROUGH MY VEINS
YOU LOOK A DIFFERENT WAY BUT FEEL JUST THE SAME
I’M READING NEWS REPORTS ABOUT HOW WE’VE CHANGED
SO GIVE ME A CORNER OF A ROOM TO STAY SANE
Track Name: No Going Back
I've been down this road and I won't go back
I have been the cart-horse and I won't do that
I have dreams and they belong to me
You can't take them from me - apparently

Oh I realise
It's just a fact of life
But all the lights from the street tonight they are calling me to come down
Track Name: There But For The Grace Of God Go I
Lost in a daze, stare at the sky. There for the grace of God go I
I let all the ghosts into your room. Can't stand the pain, be back soon.
All of your little ways, all of your silent grace, all of it putting me to shame.

And all of the faces looking the same. A hundred years is quite a game.
All of the blood and all of the noise. Still hold yourself with such poise.
What were you like at school? Did you play by the rules? Or did you play them all for fools?

Its OK to be inattentive now
Its OK to be in your own world now

So lets hear it for the 100 years war - survivors of the 100 year war..
