lyrics

Through the fields
Across the watermeadows
Cap in hand

Went the Vassel to the Castle
To swear his loyalty to the land

To all subjects, this allegiance brings
Through the divine rights of Kings
Whatever it says written on that parchment with a quill
For the continuity of the law, we use force and we will

Through the years
Across the centuaries
Hear austerity's tale

Through the factory trajectory/tragic-tory
Everything is for sale

Working on the old treadmill
Thank Christ you've got a cup to fill

The future's not written, but it's a loaded hand
For the Lords of the land.

Softly blows the sound of summers breeze amidst the evensong
An there behold the secrets of an older world
Another one

But of The Miracles, the Saints and the Angels
Who now knows their crimes ?
In the crowded eighth century cemetary lie Bede's bones
And his reckoning of time
