We wrote this before we came across the previous song, but the two are thematically linked. We are nourished and grow through those around us, through culture and the remembrance of those who went before, just as a dead tree becomes a nurse log for seedlings. Our short lives are greater together than apart.


Down in the good earth I will lay me low
When my roots are deep, and tall I have grown
All the scattered seeds of my windblown days
Their new shoots show I am not far away

Though each tree must fall, it's seeds will grow
By the seasons' turn, new leaves will show
We are the brief and enduring clay
The small gods of the undiminished day

In the scatter of the forest floor, in the deep leaf mould,
Something new for something old
Ancestors of our common ground
Turn something lost into something found

We are the cold air, the empty space
Our time is short in this hurried place
But we grow on old wood, we are the links in the chain
In the deep and good earth we do remain
