Lyrics

Lowlands

Written By: Marshall Smith

Gonna flood your hamlets and your little towns
Your sea defences will fail
And fall in to the sea
Here comes the flood
Here comes the deluge
There's little any of us
Can really do

As the world comes to an end
I will lay you down
The lowlands will disappear
The lowlands will disappear

All our education won't stop it in its tracks
All the damage we have done
Won't make the damage stop
Here comes the flood
In the nick of time
All of civilisation
Hears the last bell chime

As the world comes to an end
I will lay you down
The lowlands will disappear
The lowlands will disappear

No animals marching two by two
Are gonna save us this time
It's the real deal
The winning line
At closing time
What have we done?

As the world comes to an end
I will lay you down
The lowlands will disappear
The lowlands will disappear

what i need

What i need
©2007 tom fox, marshall smith, duncan jackson

rain drops collect
and lead to streams
two rivers flow
down to the sea
too young to know any better

the sky hung low
over the trees
so low you thought they’d touch
and in secret you wished they would

i feel soul connected
i don’t need no proof

we’re at the start of something
who know’s where it will lead
i’m feeling reckless, maybe
it’s what i need
we’re at the start of something
i have to words to lose
i want to stay a while
it’s what i need

snow falling down
on frozen ground
through windows light reflected
the room was full but we stopped time
