Levellers – Forgotten Ground lyrics

Come onto me
It's easy for a long life
Don't be denied forever
Under the night
Come along to be this free
Is what you want too
Breaking the line forever
Under the sun
It will be done together
For each to be one
Come along to be is easy
Taking the stars
Across the road
At the end of this place
It's not far and anyone can go there
It's waste ground
There's no name on this place
But it always has and always will be there
There's no fence, no walls, no fools
Just the summer sun
And what you choose
But was it only yesterday
Tomorrow came and handed you the tools
To burn it down
Your forgotten ground
The golden bough with a rope lies there
For you to climb higher and higher
But by this rope you can hang
If you've forgotten why it was you came there
And you burn it down
Your forgotten ground
When you are old and see this
Know this is cold
That when the sun rises
Tall shadows will hold
The ground you loved
To you is broken taken from you
And I carve my name and then you wrote yours
The black smoke will rise up to cover the stars
Nothing said to be forever except for the night
That will come when we burn you down
