lyrics

Over all that’s left of your father’s land you stand there looking on
waiting on the bottom of the bottle to run dry
Hoping we can finally recognise all these magpies picking off
all the little pieces that their parents left behind
before it’s all gone

Underneath the haze from the burning swath cut by our father’s hand
scraping at the bottom of the barrel one last time
Thinking that we’ve finally come to see we’re the magpies picking at
all the shiny pieces that our parents left behind
before it’s all gone

When the bones have been laid bare
They’ve picked them over for the last time
Fly on there’s fields ahead
They’ll tide us over for a little while

Through the rolling hills of these fading years where no one said enough
all these empty offerings just more of the same kind
Till the day we wake and rise to see they are magpies picking up
all the broken pieces that we’re leaving them behind
but it’s all gone
Gone

They said we could have it all
They said it’s not that far to fall
It’s not that far to fall
Like they said, you can have it all
