Genre: Folk/Acoustic


So tall you rise
above the sand
the wind blows hard and
calls your name
loud and clear you hear
applauding waves
As far your eyes
can see the land
you took with pride
and glorious ends
is now all
yours to stand

Mountains were torn away
fell down at your feet
rivers were moved and dried
houses burnt, collapsed
blooming fields neglected
cattle chased and lost
trees thrown down
to build a road
to a palace that never came

So tall…

Blood spouted bright
the wise went down
stubborn heads cracked hard
fear ran all around
children have starved
women have cried
men fought and lost
the rest ran or died or ‘s gone

So tall…
