The Peaks

  • So they came, one by one, there was never any warning
    Bled out the stuck pig fields like it was gonna last long
    And I saw the whole rise, I saw the whole thing fall down
    And all flesh spun, a lattice of it reaching out

    Oh I'm left holding my head looking down at every grave
    And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave
    And I've seen more villages burn than animals born
    I've seen more towers come down than children grow up

    Cross the peaks, cross the marsh, cross your fingers for the last time
    And pass out the blame to someone and never step it up side
    And nobody's asking, "Why is your head bent down so?"
    There's trillions lost, I'm dreaming of a different time

    I'm left holding my head looking down at every grave
    And all millennia pass, just a flicker in a wave
    And I've seen more villages burn than animals born
    I've seen more towers come down than children grow up

    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh

    I've seen biomass swarm back and forth across the globe
    They try all manner of things just to keep it all afloat
    And I've seen more criminals hung than innocents walk
    I've seen more horrors made real than dreamers wake up

    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Come now, Decider, sit down beside me
    Tell me my world is gone, oh Writer/s: JONATHAN JOSEPH HIGGS, JEREMY JOSEPH PRITCHARD, ALEXANDER KAINES ROBERTSHAW, MICHAEL DAVID SPEARMAN
