lyrics

I come from a long line of hayseed
Twas sown under drone of machinery
To grow on a hillside for a season
Then blown over ocean by the breezes

Herein my closed hand, I hold a growing flower
Herein your fistful, you hold a growing fire
And in my closed hand, I hold the turning star
And with your fistful, you miss it as it falls

Do you recall how penniless you used to be?
Claimed saving the face of the done-it-all, damn-it-all
Don't we all?

Don't you feel like the fool on the hill, sitting next to me?
Under closest of calls, when the sky falls don't we all?

I come from a long line of hayseed
To stand in a longer line of enemies
Therein my closed hand, I hold a growing flower
Therein in your fistful, you hold a growing fire
And in my own hand, I hold a bell of a different tone
