Reason Is Treason

Reason Is Treason was written by Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff and is the 3rd track on Kasabian's debut album. It was released as a single on 23 February 2004, but being a limited release not eligible for chart entry.

BackgroundEdit

Reason Is Treason was originally produced by Jacknife Lee, who was also slated to produce the entire album, however, it did not work out because the band felt he was changing their music too much. Kasabian subsequently decided to produce the album themselves, with help from Jim Abbiss.[1] The original limited single releases of the song feature Lee's remix of the song. It was later re-recorded for the album and the old version was released as a hidden track, most commonly following U Boat, on the debut album.

LiveEdit

Reason Is Treason was played consistently during the debut album and Empire eras. Starting from the 2010 summer festivals, the song was brought back and played before Julie & The Moth Man until the end of the West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum Tour, when it was dropped from the set. Reason Is Treason returned in early 2013 for the Teenage Cancer Trust warm up gigs, with the band claiming they hadn't played it in ten years.

Album Version

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

See the stones coming at my window
See the left man, no protection
Tell his family that he will be okay
K.I.L.L.
Check the angles from both forces
Overcome by the need to fight it

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

I hear the sirens on the wall

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

Jacknife Lee Version

See the stones coming at my window
Ever since then I've not been conscious
To all the chains of dirt passed onto me

Rubicon, it's almost over
Rubicon has come so close to me

Tell them back home we'll start the fire
They're all part of the big machine now
Check the angles from both forces
Overcome by the need to fight it

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason

See the stones coming at my window
See the left man, no protection
Tell his family that he won't be okay
K.I.L.L.

Turn away from the selfish silence
You get fed of your country using you
Check the angles from both forces
Overcome by the need to fight it

Here come the morning that I say goodbye to you
Here come the morning that I say goodbye
But I don't turn around 'cause the reason is treason
