lyrics

well I will pay my dues, and I will hold my tongue
and I'll bind my wrists, until they come undone
well I will light my lamp, oh in the form of the flame
and I will throw my shapes, yeah to the back of the cave

So tell me once and now not twice
You know nothing comes from no sacrifice

well I will pluck that light, right out of the sky
I will clip her wings, and then beg her to shine
I will build her cage, from the tortuous shapes
I will hide it in the shadowy places, oh that call out my name

So shine little lamp on the dust of the ground
the dust of the ground

Oh the child says to me, "why will I grow tall?"
who will be the light for me, in the darkness of it all
so carry me, oh carry me to bed just once more
and when I wake the Earth will shake, and we will all go home

You're bust and beat, in the sunny midday heat
forget the oil looks like water in the night
careful with it you've got those clumsy calloused hands
you can spill the rest but please just light it first

So shine little lamp on the dust of the ground
the dust of the ground

about

Oh man, the mountain are a large southern gothic / alt. folk band from Manchester. At their fullest, a group of 8 who try to tread the lines between harmony, discord, melancholy and joy - to create a big, if slightly broken sound.
