lyrics

Walkin in my sleep
I saw the strangest thing
Image of a figure strong and tall
I knew that voice was me
In a different tapestry
And so I turned my ears to hear the call

Crept over the edge
Where somehow I’d been lead
The world I found wasn’t quite the same
The highs were rendered low
Like the valleys the mountains sow
I remembered my soul and forgot my name

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

It occurred to me
I’d become a willow tree
Planted in the Earth so soft and fine
They used to shake me round
Now they want to cut me down
But the man of terror ain’t gonna win this time

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

The Earth will part beneath
And I’ll free my tree root feet
The man of terror, swallowed, and be gone
Strong Wind’s gonna come
Shake my branches from above
And that is how I’ll wave the good man on

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

I strode up past the edge
To my former form and said
Man may live in peace for evermore
