Album: Let England Shake (2011)
  • I live and die through England
    Through England
    It leaves a sadness
    Remedies never were within my reach
    I cannot go on as I am
    Withered vine reaching from the country
    That I love
    You leave a taste
    A bitter one
    I have searched for your springs
    But people, they stagnate with time
    Like water, like air
    To you, England, I cling
    Undaunted, never failing love for you
