"Copper Mine" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
when it snows from above the towers
the ground stays still -- it can't get away
clothe the roots hour after hour
with this ease ignore the obvious

heard the cold lost all its power
if we go let's go away
if we go let's go away

to rusted cars on blocks with no windows
to union dam where signs all say slow
to the copper mine where the blue water swallows
to the bottom if nobody follows
all year long the water stays cold

    General CommentI can imagine Matt Pond sitting in his appartment in New York City in the winter writing this song and his nostalogic feelings for the past and for mabye even a loved one.
