Skyclad - The Sky Beneath My Feet Lyrics

  • O come ye young of Hamlyn--you who know my tune so well,
  • Where it beckons you must follow--be it Heaven (be it Hell).
  • Forget your mothers grieving as I pipe you down the street,
  • With a shilling in my pocket--and the sky beneath my feet.
  • Chameleons bask in the 'arc-lite' reflection--awaiting a chance curtain call,
  • And here from the wings I have watched them and wondered if God does exist
  • after all.
  • On life's Ferris Wheel all the dreamers ride free (from the top you can only
  • go down),
  • No-one but yourself is to blame if you presume to walk upon water then drown.
  • Now your bridges are burned--it is time that you learned there is no turning
  • back,
  • All your airs and graces should vacate their places for the qualities you lack.
  • Though empty vessels made most sound--not one wise word was said,
  • Vainglory hunters seek their prey where angels fear to tread.
  • FOLLOW ME--follow and I will lead,
  • With truth that hurts like stick and stone.
  • When rats that scuttled ships departed--
  • Birds of a feather sought their own.
  • To make their dreams a lantern that outshines the brightest star,
  • Turn whispers into battlecries the winds shall carry far.
  • When hearts shielded by conviction--keeping beats so pure and strong,
  • Are at last as one united (a communion of steel--The Sword of Song).
  • We gathered together as sister and brother to dance when the world was abed,
  • Until the next dawn in the grey light of morning these lambs to the slaughter
  • were led
  • Out of the shadows these vagabonds congregate (those who have stuck to their
  • guns),
  • While tinseltown satellites frantically circulate orbiting mirror-ball suns.
  • I will not play a part in this infantile farce--your offer I decline,
  • Building walls of pretension to conceal your intentions was just a waste of
  • time.
  • Though in your life of make-believe the best things came for free,
  • Why should I trust my plans in the 'capable' hands of a shallow fool like thee.
  • FOLLOW ME--follow and I will lead,
  • With truth that hurts like stick and stone,
  • When rats their scuttled ships departed--
  • Birds of a feather sought their own.
  • The goose that lays the golden egg--I'll sacrifice and bury it,
  • If you don't believe me watch me as upon its grave I spit,
  • Worldly treasures have no worth--but self-respect is beyond price,
  • And Hell's the best alternative when faced with your fool's paradise.
  • Some say I bite the hand that feeds--but to these disillusioned eyes
  • 'tis sweet revenge to watch it bleed (it has only fed me lies),
  • The dead horses you were flogging could not rise and stand upon its legs,
  • Behold the leper-minstrel has been cured and nevermore shall beg.
