Words get written. 
Words get twisted.
Old meanings move in the drift of time.
Lift the flickering torches. 
See gentle shadows change
The features of the faces 
Cut in unmoving stone.
Bad mouth on a prayer day, 
Hope no one's listening.
Roots down in the wet clay, 
Branches glistening.

True disciples carrying that message
To colour just a little 
With their personal touch.
Home-spun fancy weavers 
And naked half-believers 
Crusades and creeds descend like 
Fiery flakes of snow.
Bad mouth on a prayer day, 
Hope no one's listening.
Roots down in the wet clay, 
Branches glistening.
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches.

In wet and windy priest-holes. 
Grand in vast cathedrals.
High on lofty minarets 
Or in the temples of doom.
I hope the old man's got his face on.
He'd better be some quick change artist.
Suffer little children 
To make their minds up soon.
Bad mouth on a prayer day, 
Hope no one's listening.
Roots down in the wet clay, 
Branches glistening.
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches.
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches. 
Roots to branches.
