Mulu The Rain Forest
Thomas Dolby Lyrics

If I'm not sleeping
It's because I'm frightened
Of what I might find
Behind the curtain

There is a signal
There is a warning
I will not heed them
Before I hear the morning dew
That trickles down my window

Mulu, the people of the rain forest
Believe in dream time
Real time inverted
Along a faultline

Below the surface
There is a sequence
There is a reason
For all these nightmares

All this mayhem
Mulu, the changes came before he knew
The keeper of the rain forest
Talk to me Mulu

Speak to me Mulu
Walk with me Mulu
Reach for me Mulu
Mulu, the changes came before they knew

The seasons changed an hour too soon
The waters came before he knew
The prisoner of the rain forest

2:36 one of the finest interludes ever written. Love ya TD. Cool video Chad.

Hi Chad, What a spectacular video. I came to it as a huge Thomas Dolby fan. I'm wondering whether this is the first time a drone was used in making a music video. Besides the breathtaking views, I like the special effects--hard work in the editing room.


I LOVE the music of Thomas Dolby!

Brian BarrSinister

Thank you for sharing your vision of the vastness of our existence. Mr. Dolby, you are a visionary and personal hero of mine.

Chad Johnson

Thanks Brian! Agreed - that's a great interlude, and one of my favorite songs on one of my favorite albums. It was an honor working with Thomas, and the whole thing was spontaneously improvised!

Arcadian Malerei

Simply breathtaking in all aspects!! Adore this pertinent Song! One can hear Mr Dolby's pianistic prowess too! those last few Notes! The whole piece just flows over you! Excellent Vid too!

Rudiger Hornung

one of my favorite Thomas Dolby songs


Very nice, i had this song in my head for some strange reason, was going to check it out on Spotify, then thought "Hmm, maybe someone has uploaded the track on Youtube".. Bingo.. song, and a new video!!, I bought the LP when it first came out, so was surprised TD had added a video so recently to go with the song. Nice job on the video. 

Chad Johnson

This music video was basically improvised. Thomas found me on YT ans I was following him around Northern California to shoot some aerial for his Invisible Lighthouse short film. We were in this great location with he trees and he asked me if I had an iPod with Mulu on it, and I did. So we just went for it. It took an hour to shoot, and weeks to edit. I'm glad you enjoyed it!


Awesome! Way to go, Chad! Love every minute of it!
