about

What can the root see? We might never know, but this song is best enjoyed on a blanket with a friend, preferably in an unknown field. Pair with red wine.

lyrics

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

The root cannot dream
Of a land all in green
Yet it stakes the canopy strong
A man in the world
Given visions to hold
Only breaks that which he belongs

What's in a word
While hanging from a string
Yet silence can hurt
So we sing

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the oh so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

A vision revealed
Bare flesh in a field
Is it near or so faraway
The sights that we've seen
Contextually obscene
Telling nature we must disobey

Standing up
When we are called
Or living a life
At a crawl

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the oh so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

The root cannot dream
Of the visions of green
So close, so far away

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today
