Planted Feet – Info

  1. Planted Feet

From planted feet
Sprout roots too deep
To flee the creep
That spooks the sheep

And through their veins
Shall run the sap
The substance fear
Maintains the trap

Well it’s high time
That we realised
That our time high’s
Not our real eyes

Our trip to nowhere
Starts and ends
Where roots are laid
For growing pains

Don’t view the world
Grow around you
Grow around the world
From your view

No up or down
Misfortune, grace
Face every way
Weigh every face

2. Tiresome Times

I always dread to
Open the news each day
But I still won’t turn away

Repeating problems
Yet every yesterday
Followed by little progress made

If you exchange your heart for money
It ain’t gonna beat what’s right

Tiresome times..
Tiresome times..

Sometimes I step back
Take a different guise
Try to see it with fresh eyes

But the cold truth
Ruins every view
Within moments of sight

If you exchange your time for money
It’s gonna spend your life

Tiresome times..
Tiresome times..

Freeze the factories
Break the banks
Shed the fur coats from the rats

Fire the phonies
Trash the tanks
Feel the strain roll off our backs

The few are able to decide
Which of us will make it through the night
Is that right?
To even ask you seems impolite
Insulting even, I think we’ve had enough
Don’t you?

Sometimes I feel trapped
On a frantic ride
Where we are carried by the tide

And we must float
Keep us all alive
Not a moment to realise

If you exchange morals for money
It’s gonna cost a life

Tiresome times..
Tiresome times..

Freeze the factories
Break the banks
Shed the fur coats from the rats

Fire the phonies
Trash the tanks
Feel the strain roll off our backs

The words of Lennon
Enjoyed but ignored
Did we imagine, do no more?

And Martin Luther
Turned dreams to fairer laws
Yet we would sleep walk to civil war

If you exchange your home for money
It’s gonna be your last goodbye

Tiresome times..
Tiresome times..

Great human beings
People like Susan B
Rallied against adversity

And now we’ve Greta
Wisdom beyond her teens
But will we match her and take heed?

If you exchange the script be honest
We’re here to nurture life

There’s still time..
There’s still time..

Surely we all know the answer already?

3. Numbered

So you will find new ways to kill
See them crawl it gives a thrill
Repeat the lies so many times
Becomes the truth if no-one denies

Harvest fear from all of the kingdom
Bake a bread from hatred’s power
Feed the flock as Father fed thee

Lonely days have turned into freedom
Being alive sounds different now
Despite your thoughts of ending it all you’re still here
 
But your days are numbered
You don’t deserve anything anymore
Unless you fall, get back where you came from

Soon after birth you caught a chill
First strike to innocence instilled
Years passed and all was lost, no hope
Until your scourge dropped down a rope

Down, down to you

The world at large didn’t choose to snub you
The almighty foe was a closer hand
Rocking you in a crib of rhetoric

Must it come to humiliation
For you to see a better way
All that matters and all that’s needed is here

But your days are numbered
You don’t deserve anything anymore
unless you fall, get back where you came from

It’s true we haven’t held you
We’ve laughed too much and abused
But your wrongs are adding up
And despite our cold touch we’re willing to forgive
But if it’s business as usual there will come a point
When we will end it all, end it all for you

So your days are numbered
One day your power won’t swing anymore
Unless you fall, get back where you came from

4. Hammer

The tenacity of man
Put a hammer in your hand
This talisman demands
You compete with the past

The stories of your clan
Are the plinth on which you stand
And the glories you’ll command
Will be written in this land

When the hammer falls
Choose to kill or create
When you nail that wall
Build a door or block the way

When the hammer falls
Choose to love or to hate
When you nail that wall
Make bonds stronger or break

You got a choice today

You start alone on this ride
But you’re sure to join a side
And together you’ll find might
In the arms of all your kind

Sight the focus of your strike
Smack down or take a hike
It’s an all or nothing fight
And the right ain’t always right

When the hammer falls
Choose to kill or create
When you nail that wall
Build a door or block the way

When the hammer falls
Choose to love or to hate
When you nail that wall
Make bonds stronger or break

In the possession of greater strength
There’s a temptation to indulge yourself
In the possession of greater strength
There’s a temptation to value wealth
Above all else
Until the final bell

If it’s stories you believe
It takes a God like Thor to wield
The tools to change the scene
But we’ve all the clout we need

Printed pages, glowing screens
Can’t realise your dreams
Be a strong impact machine
For yourself and for the team

When the hammer falls
Choose to kill or create
When you nail that wall
Build a door or block the way

When the hammer falls
Choose to love or to hate
When you nail that wall
Make bonds stronger or break

5. Fantastically Incorporated

I simply don’t believe
The things I’ve seen
Could have come to me
Even weaved in dreams

Pandora’s box lay open
And my eyes are bright no more

In the beginning
It wasn’t real life
It was all my imagination
I could see the borderline
Yet it slowly dissipated
I’m Fantastically Incorporated

Fantastically incorporated..

Feed me endlessly
I don’t need the sleep
I will never weep
For what I used to be

Pandora’s box lay open
And my eyes are mine no more

In the beginning
It wasn’t real life
It was all my imagination
I could see the borderline
Yet it slowly dissipated
I’m Fantastically Incorporated

Fantastically incorporated..
Fantastically incorporated..

6. I Caught the Sun

At the last there must be dusk
No dawn can win despite your lust

I caught the Sun, it revealed the writing on the wall
But answers will come, before we’re done
I refuse to die, I refuse to move from where I lie
For my own sake, I’d leave nothing behind

You are the Sun
You blind my eyes

I yearned for more, you baked the skin on the lids of my eyes
I’m pain-resistant, you should know
Now as the shadows flee this rotten withering life
A repressive laugh, burns to die

You are the Sun
You blind my eyes

At the last there must be dusk
No dawn can win despite your lust

You are the Sun
You blind my eyes

7. The Truth Is So Dead

Any evil you want, be loved for it
Any sin that you want, be loved for evil
Ha ha ha
Behold! Even hate amplifies you

One lie is the fastest way to die
A thousand lies will make it all alright
A million steps away from the truth
And suddenly you won’t need… proof
Tell those lies and make them big
Say em enough to make them stick
You’ll find you can be anything
Any evil you want, be loved for it

Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need no proof, it’s so dead
Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need no proof, truth’s dead

Make sure it’s always tales
Any way you flip your coin
You’re a winner tonight

You were chosen by their God
To replace the creed that they were taught
With your own conveniences
To expose the fraud of desperate scientists
Now they trust you for the lies
Putting sense to bed with lullabies
Fulfil your gospel of upheaval
Any sin that you want, be loved for evil

Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need no proof, it’s so dead
Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need no truth

Tomorrow’s dawn is the creator’s concern.
To make us great today
The Earth yearns to pay and dearth paves the way

Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need no proof, it’s so dead
Believe, believe the truth is so dead
You Need, you need, you need

8. Quit

Antisocial creep
You compel us to turn
As our minds pay to view
You will make us learn
You’ve invented a dream
To be screened far and wide
It’s too good to be true but we’ve all queued to buy

Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of shit

If this is all you offer, you’ll lose your grip
If this is all you dreamed of, it’s time to stop

Antisocial creep
The suspicions are rife
You sail for none but your crew
You’ve no cares outside
The money churning dream
Where the stars all align
Is convincing us less as we witness your crime

Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of
Quit, you viral piece of shit

If this is all you’re made of, you’re built to sink
If this is all you dreamed of, it’s time to stop

If this is all you wanted, it’s all you’ll get
If this is all you dreamed of, you’ve wished to stop

9. End Me

Can never quite believe
Your secondhand threats to end me
A slap in my face
You utter disgrace

I’m to think that you own me?
Well maybe you do
I resent that of you

I could have others you know
I’m above your tired little show
My kind always moves on
No insurmountable wrong
That’s right.

I sometimes think of how I’ll leave you for another
But the satisfaction seems so distant now

After the sun of yesterday’s descent
I wake again in your bed
And today is mine alone
To devour each last shred
Of you my love.

To this beast you gave rise
How is my power trip a surprise?
I’m turning my screw
Slowly impaling you

With every twist we bind together
Harder, more futile to escape
Could I be your greatest mistake?

You’ll stand it in your lord’s name
The powers that be will vindicate me
Our marriage will remain
Our marriage will remain

I’ve choked you to your final breaths
I’ve injected your veins under duress
You carry on with the scars beneath your dress

I will never allow you death
You’re my world
My love for you I deal
In the force I wield over you

My courtesy kept for the stranger folk
The best I’ve to give never paid back to home

Of all the things you give
Your passive support lets me live like this
I’m sure we’ll never die
The two of us side by side
I see you endlessly alive, my vacuum bride

Eyes wide
Eyes wide

10. By The Way

Hey you, I just got started
You, could soon be all the way through
Look inside
Hey you, you’ve hit the snooze on doom
Will you wake to the sound of mourning? I’m fine alone

Did you know? Nothing stays the same
Don’t you know? You’ve lost this game

So by the way, I’ll see this through, what ever it takes
Oh by the way, I’ve nothing to lose, at the end of this pain

You’re welcome to, believe in your own truth
Believe in all the fake news
Close your eyes
I try to, forgive all that you do
But don’t expect that I too, understand

Did you know? Nothing feels the same
Don’t you know? You’ve lost this game

By the way, I’ll see this through, what ever it takes
Oh by the way you’ve made your point, that was your mistak
Yeah by the way, you’ll be put down, without a doubt
And by the way I’ve nothing to lose and it all to gain

By the way, I’ll see this through, what ever it takes
Oh by the way you’ve made your point, that was your mistake
Yeah by the way, you’ll be put down, without a doubt
And by the way, by and by,
I’ve nothing to lose
When the truth catches you
Bye

11. Life Found Away

See the light cross dream to dream
Washing through it splits its beam
All the colours the mind’s eye they wake
Basking in their heavenly drape
Daybreak here unfolds
This story has never been told
We glance skyward
Look back to our home
Back from where we roam

As we turn toward the warmth
We stare at our new sun

Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey

Every man awaits his tale
Carried on a stirring gale
Forgiving land, forgiven souls
Onward life it rolls
Given the chance of a new destiny
Forging life by strange new seas
The feeling here brings calm to the heart
Embark on our new start

As we turn towards the warmth
A new day has begun

Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey
Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey

Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey
Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey
Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey
Life found away whoa oh oh oh whoa oh oh hey
Life found a way whoa oh oh whoa oh oh oh oh hey

At the cusp of certain death
You’d reach even to the stars
For a gulp of freedom’s breath

12. Uproot

Uproot your feet
Move forward carefully
Be aware of footfalls
None is ever so small

Ripples roll, in all directions
Know the ghosts of your feet
Echo after you leave
