Tradition and roots weigh in heavy, when the future is unsure
Unrest in the neighbourhood not seen since years before
The breaking of the news is pouring fuel onto the fire
I start speaking words, that I know inside don't seem right
I met him where the road breaks up to the track into the woods
He hadn't had a talk for a while, he wanted to feel understood
And what he had to say sent shivers
Shivers down my spine

Don't go until the ground frosts cleared
The river's higher than people have seen for years
Dry bark by the fireside
Avoid the eyes of strangers outside
Left him in the eye of the storm
He said he needed no-one else at all
He follows the law of the land
It's all there to remind me

Spent years on long term sick in a terraced house in town
Something inside of him broke, and he made the move out
Took up a secluded barn with a ten year stock of supplies
He says when the church bells ring
That's when he'll know they're near

The way he looked at me sent shivers
Shivers to the bones

Keep inside until the first green shows
He says the trees tell him all he needs to know
Cut off from the rest of the world
Nervous speech in riddles and codes
Left him in the eye of the storm
He said he needed no-one else at all
He follows the law of the land
It's all there to remind me

It's all there to remind me

Well did you notice him the other day
The tone in his voice has worried me
We think he may be alone from us now
He may be further in

Be smart, be still, take the action now
You're yelling about a time that's gone
Cause and effect take a step back
Step back, step back

Don't go until the ground frosts clears
The river's higher than people have seen for years
Dry bark by the fireside
Avoid the eyes of strangers outside
Left him in the eye of the storm
He said he needed no-one else at all
He follows the law of the land
It's all there to remind me

Well thank you
Somehow you helped me through
The centre's founder speaks
Says all these people are freaks
And I sympathise, but that's as far as it goes

He says all he needs is a loving wife
Forgotten about the hours they spent
Under the water tower
It's not like that anymore...

Don't go until the ground frosts clears
The river's higher than people have seen for years
Dry bark by the fireside
Avoid the eyes of strangers outside
Left him in the eye of the storm
He said he needed no-one else at all
He follows the law of the land
It's all there to remind me
