PINES (Ingen vinner frem til den evige ro)


Lyrics by MaJiKer



In the valley's glen here we evergreens grow
Some say this veil keeps us stronger
Shielded from our roots
Seasons come seasons go
Who'll live from soil meets no hunger

Patterned coils of string
Conveyed in raven's mouth
Dark cones from the north will
Open when we're south
Sheltered we fall 'tween where
Frail mud has cracked
Under this dim flickering winter

Men in their hundreds make shells of this meat
Sated by needles they plunder
Treading ancient ground
Here they stand at our feet
Purging our bristles asunder

Inky veins they gauge, our oil to extract
Darksome drink they swill,
Our fragrant resin sapped
Hard bark will seethe ‘til the dawn of the day
Greed gains his graft here no longer

In the valley's glen here we evergreens grow
Some say this veil keeps us stronger
Who'll live from soil meets no hunger
Under this dim flickering winter
