This is the story of a man
Who took his life in his hands
I didn't know Horatio...
Cause and defence of the war between worlds
Didn’t stop him at all
Horatio, he didn’t have to go

They hadn’t noticed you weren’t there
They were too busy plotting
Someone else’s unawares
So every corner was your dungeon
And every shadow was your church

Horatio, is hiding his opinion
Never coming, never going…
He offered to
Stop breaking rules
But they said no no no Horatio…

Black metal pistols lined his path
They were haunting, they were knowing
So he couldn’t smile or laugh.
So when the panther learned to pounce
It was too late for his mouth

Horatio had the gallows
As his backdrop for years and years and years
He offered to
Stop breaking rules
But they said no no no Horatio…
They said no, no, no...

Now here lies Horatio
Who will take his place?

Almost uncategorisable, Gabby’s unique perspective on the world around her is inspired as much by her singularly surreal imagination. Gabby Young and Other Animals offer a slew of stunningly beautiful, often haunting songs that are a genre bending explosion of gypsy folk, pop, rock, jazz, cabaret – and a whole lot more.
