This week we look at the music career of a man that is famously known in the UK for being the face of the television show DIY SOS. Not many people remember that this guy delved into the music scene for a while but he did! Today we look at TV Presenter Nick Knowles.
There was a time when Nick Knowles released a song with his brother called An Eye For an Eye which received positive reviews on Amazon as well as catching the attention of people who were fans of the Josh Widdecombe XFM Podcast as they spoke about it a lot and gave it a lot of air time. There was even a Facebook group set up by a fan called ‘More People Need to see this video of Nick Knowles singing”. In the past year it looks like Nick wanted the song banished from the world as there no evidence that it existed as all the videos on youtube has been deleted and even the album on Amazon is not available anymore.
It may be near to impossible to find the audio for the song, but i managed to find the lyrics to the song
When we fight one and other
Our hearts filled with hate.
The ones who suffer are the ones who sit at home and wait.
And there’s always a reason
The good reason why
We’re told it’s for truth and for freedom
The freedom to kill or to die
Is there no denying those who are trying to poison our minds?
Cos an eye an eye is making the whole world blind
And the men that we follow
You are best left ung-herrrr
For your hearts are hollow and you’re just like your words
So the fate of the many
Is sealed by the few
A bet a pound to a penny a bullet will never find you
While the orphans and widows weep in the shadows betrayed by human kind
And an eye for an eye is making the whole world blind
To death or glory
How blind can we be?
How many children must die before we consider ourselves to be free?
We live in a world divided
That’s driven by greed
Where the poor and misguided deliver us children in need
So the cries of the fallen
Still ring in our ears
But we’ll keep on calling till somebody hears
And who will dry the tears in the eyes of the ones they leave behind?
Cos for an eye an eye is making the whole world blind
The whole world blind
Oh oh oh oh oh
An eye for an eye, making the whole world blind (the whole world blind)
Why can’t we see? Why can’t we see?
An eye for an eye is making the whole world blind.
We may not be able to find the song that we are talking about, but enjoy this video of Nick Knowles singing for the Television charity show, Children in Need in 2008.
