The Waifs – Ironbark lyrics
Time and time wind and weather
Haven't made you change alot
Ya keeping everything together 
Skin as thick as Ironbark 

Standing proud, tall and stately
Strong against the winds of strife
But I've heard your feeling lately
You've been cut right down by life.

Your skin might be as strong as Iron
Heartwood might be hard as stone
One cut and the blood runs red and living
As any blood that's ever flowed

Cold hard steel of the axe mans blow
Wind, trouble and strife
Won't bring you down for as well you know
You were born to survive

But everything did set against you
Roots sunk deep in the stoney ground
When life takes more then it presents you
Sink those deep roots deeper down

Don't let life keep you from living
Don't let your heart get petrified
Keep that light blood red and flowing
Keep your iron soul alive

Circles tell the tales of living
Hard success, hard defeat 
Still each ring spins a tale of giving
You're everything that this world needs

Cold hard steel of the axe mans blow
Wind, trouble and strife
Won't bring you down for as well you know
You were born to survive

Cold hard steel of the axe mans blow
Wind, trouble and strife
Won't bring you down for as well you know
You were born to survive

To survive (x3)
