"England" as written by and Polly / Harvey....
I live and die through England
Through England
It leaves a sadness
Remedies never were within my reach
I cannot go on as I am
Withered vine reaching from the country
That I love
England
You leave a taste
A bitter one
I have searched for your springs
But people, they stagnate with time
Like water, like air
To you, England, I cling
Undaunted, never failing love for you
England

    General CommentThe whole album "Let England Shake" sounds great but it gives me the feeling of bi-polar disorder, depression and angst... not the most enjoyable feelings...

    General CommentCan anyone place the traditional-sounding singing in the background at the beginning?
