about

Shaun Kirk Australia

Shaun’s grooves are addictive, and his capacity to connect with his audience also stems from his reflective song writing ability which is heartfelt and seemingly comes from a place beyond his years. His sound drifts between soulful tones and a robust vocal range which has been described as “one of the finest blues voices this country has ever heard” – (Buzz Magazine). ... more

Track Name: Give to the Needy
We live in a world where the rich man feasts
Boasting and possession non necessity
While there’s a young child starved, malnutritioned and diseased
Now tell me do you think that that’s the way it should be?

Every seed you plant’s gonna grow
Every fire you light’s gonna glow
So stand for what you know is right
Too many people just turn their blind eye
Never leave a wounded soldier behind
Ignorance is bliss, but neglection is a crime

Take from the greedy
And give to the needing
Take from the greedy
And give it to the needy

And our leaders are cheaters
Conspiring to deceive us
Revenue raising
Taking you out to the cleaners
If the best things in life are free
Then tell me why is it the poor who do all the suffering?
Money is the root to all evil
But spent the right way it could help a whole lot of people

Every seed you plant’s gonna grow
Every fire you light’s gonna glow
So stand for what you know is right
Cos too many people just turn their blind eye
Never leave a wounded soldier behind
They say ignorance is bliss, but neglection is a crime

Take from the greedy
And give it to the needy
Take from the greedy
And give to the needing

(Voice Over)
We all want to help one and other
Human beings are like that
But we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned mens souls
In this world there’s room for everyone
The good earth is rich
The way of life is free and beautiful

So stand for what you know is right
Too many people just turn their blind eye
Never leave a wounded soldier behind
They say ignorance is bliss, but neglection is a crime

Take from the greedy
And give to the needing
Take from the greedy
And give to the needy
Every mouth needs a feeding
And every lung needs to breathe in
So take from the greedy
And give to the needy
Take from the greedy
Give to the needing
Take from the greedy
Track Name: Tranquillity
It’s a busy world we live these days
It’s easy to exceed the need to run the rat race
In the blinking of an eye
Time can pass you by
And all your labour just be money down the drain
You got to,
Take your time
Ease your mind
Tranquillity

I once met a man who used to work like a slave
Seven days a week without a single lunch break
Never had fun, couldn’t find no time for love
He was, six foot down when he turned just twenty eight
You got to,
Take your time
Ease your mind
Tranquillity

Spend a little time, hanging with the people that you love
Laying on the grass, looking at the clouds up above
There’s nothing wrong with dedication to cessation on occasions
There’s more to life, than labour wealthiest and cultivation

It’s a busy world we live these days
It’s easy to forget the fundamentals keep you sane
Apprehensive for our wealth we tend to pretermit our health
Don’t let that daily grind construct a wall you can’t escape
You got to,
Take your time
Ease your mind
Tranquillity

Spend a little time, hanging with the people that you love
Laying on the grass, looking at the clouds up above
There’s nothing wrong with dedication to cessation on occasions
There’s more to life, than labour wealthiest and cultivation

Take your time, you must take care of your heart
Take your time, you must take care of your heart
Take your time
Take your time
