"The Flower That Shattered The Stone" as written by and Jarvis/henry....
The Earth is our mother just turning around
With her trees in the forest and roots underground
Our father above us who's high is the wind
Paint us a rainbow without any end

[Chorus]
As the river runs freely the mountain does rise
Let me touch with my fingers and see with my eyes
In the hearts of the children of pure love still roams
Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home
Like the flower that shattered the stone

Sparrows find freedom beholding the Sun
In the engine and beauty we're all joined in one
I reach out before me and look to the sky

As the river runs freely the mountain does rise
Let me touch with my fingers and see with my eyes
In the hearts of the children of pure love still roams
Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home
Like the flower that shattered the stone
Like a bright star in heaven that lights our way home
Like the flower that shattered the stone

    General CommentThis does not help at all! I wanted to kow if maybe there was a story, a fable or such, that would offer an explanation for the line that was used in the song, 'Like the flower that shattered the stone'. Or were they just all high at the time and it sounded good and rhymed, so that was it?
