"Little Flowers" as written by and Denison Stuart Witmer....
How you found me out I still never understand,
Thoughts you can't take with you when you go.
You were waving flags that bare the colors
Of your love I didn't know:
Orange for the vineyards,
Blue is for the rivers,
Green goes like a hillside covered now,
White is not surrender
Despite what you've been told;
It's clouds of hope
That fall on you now, save you now.
Fall on you, fall on you now, save you now.

One time we met, you were outside
Floating in the forest. I placed my stigmata
On your hands. Little flowers that you have sown
Show people you have known
That I am love and
Fall on you now, save you now.
Fall on you, fall on you now, save you now.

And fall on you now, save you now.
Fall on you, fall on you now, save you now.
Fall on you now, save you now.
Fall on you, fall on you now, save you now.

    General CommentHow is a song about St. Francis/Invisible Children pushing beliefs? It's a gorgeous song, and it can mean a hundred things.

    General Commentit's about St. Francis of Assisi (sp?) supposedly.

    But I think of it more as a love song.

    General CommentDenison Witmer wrote this song in the name of the children in Northern Uganda. 3 college students came over to Uganda and filmed a documentary about the Lord's Resistance Army or rebel group, and how they were kidnapping children and putting them into their rebel ranks, teaching them how to kill. But no one knows about this... that's why they're called Invisible Children.


    That's why it's "How you found me out"

    General CommentI love this song. They were showing Invisible Children at my high school and I really wanted to see the film. Great documentary.

    General Comment@sambo959

    Just enjoy the music, it can mean to you what you want it to mean.

    Sufjan did it on Seven Swans, and Jeff Buckley did it w/ Neutral Milk Hotel (In the aeroplane over the sea being thier best CD) and those are 2 of the best CDs of the past decade (OK Computer is the best)

    And don't tell me you don't like sufjan.

    General CommentI think muleshoe is right.

    And nobody's pushing their beliefs, sambo959. Who doesn't sing about what they believe about life in one way or another anyway? It's a beautiful song, and that says something about what inspired it...

    Here's an interview in which Denison talks a little about Christianity: decapolis.com/musicreviews/interviews/…
