Quiet Revolutionaries
       E
Let's start a revolution,
   C#
a quiet shift in power,
          E
there's twenty more solutions,
      C#                    A
then what we thought there are

Chorus:
A
Whisper to me if you want to be a
   A       F#
a quiet revolutionary

       E
We could sing forever
   C#
song of hope and loss.
          E
Throw our burdens into
      C#         A
a river we can't cross

Chorus
       E
If I reach October
   C#
and I'm still on my feet,
          E
I'll call a 1000 trumpets
      C#                    A
to sound sweet reverie

Chorus (twice)

A
I can hear the sound of drummers
A
through the forest floor.
A
Change will come with wind an fire,
A
shake us to the core.

About the artist behind Quiet Revolutionaries:

Duke Special, real name Peter Wilson, is a songwriter and performer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A piano-based songwriter with a romantic style and a warm, distinctly-accented voice, he has a distinctive look, with his long dreadlocks, eyeliner and outfits he describes as "hobo chic". His live performances have a theatrical style inspired by Vaudeville and music hall, and often incorporate 78s played on an old-fashioned gramophone, or sound effects from a transistor radio. He is most often accompanied by percussionist "Temperance Society" Chip Bailey, who plays cheese graters and egg whisks, a Stumpf fiddle and a Shirdi drone box, as well as the more typical drums and cymbals. Other musicians who perform with Wilson from time to time include Paul "Pilot" Wilkinson (guitar), Réa Curran (trumpet, backing vocals, accordion), Ben Castle (clarinet, saxophone), Ben Hales (bass guitar), "Professor" Ger Eaton (keyboards) and Serge Archibald III (saxophone, "ethereal background sounds", vibes).

He has released two albums, Adventures in Gramophone (2005) and Songs from the Deep Forest (2006), both of which were nominated for the Choice Music Prize. He is married to an artist and has three sons.
