The Root, the Leaf & the Bone Songtext

The Root, the Leaf & the Bone Songtext

Strip away the layers overgrown
Down beneath the underside it lies alone
Travel through the human lives it has known
Passing by the root, the leaf and the bone

Hidden away, far below
Impressions of a World we used to know.
A veil now pulled over the surface in Time
Carved upon the stone & the water lines

Mapped within the space beneath our feet
Are Signposts to a progress now complete
Echoes of the moments we have now lost
Building up to a future but at what cost?

Hidden away, far below
Impressions of a World we used to know
A veil now pulled over the surface in Time
Carved upon the stones & the water line

Down... We trace our borders underground
Searching for the things once held but thrown away upon a pile of memories...
...Memories...


Down... With geophyrs we prod around.
With detectors, site directors reveal the metal objects from our memories
Memories
Underground

Tracking by the meeting hall & passed the Village Green
Lit by lamps that are tended to by hand
Copper kettles boil away on fire burning stoves
the Horses in the stables stand unseen

Peel away the layers of towered thrones
Concrete, tarmac driveways, fields of stone.
To contemplate the passing of home grown
Built upon the root, the leaf and...

...the postal office corner shop is now the entrance way
to a Corporation leisure complex & carvery.
The homely hearth of the Speckled Hen is now a B&B.
Where foreign bankers bring their girlfriends for sex & afternoon tea

Peel away the layers of towered thrones
Concrete, tarmac driveways, fields of stone.
To contemplate the passing of home grown
Built upon the root, the leaf and...
Tick... tock


Peel away the layers of towered thrones
Concrete, tarmac driveways, fields of stone.
To contemplate the passing of home grown
Built upon the root, the leaf and...
Tick... tock
