ROOTSSo, lately I've been listening to the wonderful Show of Hands and one of their songs in particular got me thinking.ROOTS by BlackFrostRose
The song, entitled "Roots" (selective lyrics below), looks back on just how important our roots are. Where would we be without them? What kind of life would we be leading? What would our music be like? How about our language? Although we may not often think about it, they're a huge factor impacting our modern society. Admittedly the song focusses in particularly on (the disappearing) English culture, but I'm sure the underlying message will also apply to the other areas of the world where people are far too focussed on the future, far too reliant on the ever advancing of technology.
"Seed, bark, flower, fruit
They're never gonna grow without their roots
Branch, stem, shoot
They need roots
Haul away boys, let them go
Out in the wind
