Welcome to the
Annotated New Model Army Song Archive

What's this all about?

This website is my attempt to collect the lyrics to ALL New Model Army songs and annotate them. Furthermore, I used to try and list all sources - official recordings, bootlegs and live performances - to these songs. I've now given up. I mean, it is a bit nerdish really; besides the boys are constantly on tour and I don't have much time any more. Not all lyrics are officially published, I possibly don't know every recording and of course I have only seen comparatively few concerts, so in order to make this site as complete as possible, I need your help. Please contribute all additions and corrections you find necessary to


How does this site work?

All the songs on this site are listed in alphabetical order. If a song has never been released, I tried to give it some catchy, plausible title, usually the first line or most important noun/phrase of the chorus.

An italic title indicates that there are no official lyrics to the song. Italic words within the lyrics are those bits that I'm not so sure I understood properly. ??? means that I did not understand this part at all.

Grey title and lyrics show that the song is a cover version. The band/artist that performed it originally is given in brackets.

Green source means that this is a live version of the song.

Red source means that this is a solo acoustic, i. e. Red Sky Coven or Justin Sullivan solo, version of the song.
