Whispers

This song was created for Game of Bands round 215 : "Fairy Tales"

Lyrics:

"Roots of Old"

These whispers lived
Ten thousand years
Once told by trees
Roots wrapped in bones

They spoke of times
When none were here
'Pon land made free
And all was home

Hear the wind
Bend your ear
Bend the knee
Before the old

Roots of yore
Untarnished green
Brown and deep
Ne'er let you go

Day saw a soul
With quickened feet
With swallowed fear
Strike out alone

Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
Another thousand trees grow cold
Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
Yet these whispers
These whispers
These whispers ten thousandfold

Tore the skies with all their might
Where once was day, now bruised by night
These roots of old now bathed in light
With whipping winds these whispers
These whispers burned electric bright

A soul took shelter
Stole the dead
Bones of the earth
Built overhead

A soul kept dry
Until the flood
Drew tears of blood
Swayed green to red

A soul sought solace
From the gods above
Those tired eyes
Held no more love

Though whispers
Ten thousand years
Foretold by trees
Roots wrapped in bones

Day saw a soul
With quickened feet
With swallowed fear
Strike out alone

Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
Another thousand trees grow cold
Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
Yet these whispers
These whispers
These whispers ten thousandfold

Tore the skies with all their might
Where once was day, now bruised by night
These roots of old now bathed in light
With whipping winds these whispers
These whispers burned electric bright
[Exit]
