lyrics

ROOTLESS

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

This rootless will be in the redstone nest
No taint of his sorrow on the breeze.
When the sun comes I will grow him,
But now he must rest (but now he must rest)

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

This rootless will be in my leafen.
He will be in my twigs and branch.
His mossboll songs will wave in the wind;
His breath hum in my blossomsongs (his breath hum in my blossomsongs)

We are singing, all my livings, in a glee of Alltree, rainjoy
Ring through to ring, down to the core, rainjoy

When the sky opens wide, Oh, that’s when I come alive
The rains come from no cloud, but straight from the snakemouth.
Look at how my leafen dance, madness drowning in romance,
Watching as I clap my hands, quench fever,
So let my love fill your lungs, I long to listen to your songs,
I’ll be swaying, simply singing rainjoy.
