"Down On The Ground" as written by Martin Noble, Jan Wilkinson, Neil Wilkinson and Matthew Wood....
Where I come from, silvery trees
Diamond on leaf, can't you see it?
Why did I leave?

The clipping of wings
The draping of kings
I was here long before you
Now kindly leave

This was far far away
And I knew I would not stay
Down on the ground
I'll be found
I opened up my mouth
I didn't make a sound
I could not cut you down, down, down

I was a girl and you were a boy
With innocent thoughts getting colder
Than it was before

This was long long ago
And I knew we'd never know
Down on the ground
I'll be found
I opened up my mouth
I didn't make a sound
I could not cut you down, down, down

Down, down, down
Could not cut you down

    General CommentThis is a song about how neanderthals lived here before the last ice age and were driven out by the cold and cro magnon man, obviously.

    My InterpretationIm pretty sure its a reference to a man and his hometown and some moment oral sex moment he had with another man. not sure if autobiographical but i know the a lot of the bands song themes seem open minded...
