Father & Father

Father and father
Walk the heath and grind their teeth at each other
Father and father, walk the heath
The children believe it's about their mother

But it's the father who knows that the farther they walk
The harder they try, the darker the sky becomes, for them
Could the children be disturbed
Did they stop to think at all

Father and father, down the tree
Can't they see, they destroy one another
Father and father, sow the seed, so they can grow
Just like their brother

But it's the father who knows that the father they walk
The harder they try, the darker the sky becomes, for them
Hath he the strength to hold it in
Importunate greed the sin

Oh no, I can't bare to see that look upon their faces
And I know their smiles will disappear in time
Father please, help me ease my aching mind
'Cos I can't bare to know the things that they still see

Brother to brother, for your sons hold your guns
Not for your mother
Brother and brother, hide your pride, and shine your love
For one another

But as a father should know that the harder they talk
The harder they cry, the darker their lives become
Oh in this world
Could the children be disturbed
Did they stop to think at all

Oh no, I can't bear to see that look upon their faces
And I know their smiles will disappear in time
Father, father, please help me ease my aching mind
'Cos I can't bear to know the things that they still see

Father and father
Walk the heath and grind their teeth, at each other
Father and father, you should walk the heath
And you should walk in peace
With each other
