Stick in the Wheel “Common Ground”

From Here Records (2015, UK)

They sing with their soul and their accent to touch our hearts, deeply.

Striking.


On common ground the poisoned seed, was sown in my country
They fenced me in and took away, the things that belonged to me
With a chill in my heart I knew
They did it to me, they’ll do it to you
So child you must fight, fight.
The softest hands have sealed the fate, the roughest ones would never make
A promise on the ground we stand, a bloody line in the sand
The pen and the sword be damned
What a piece of work is a man
So child you must fight, fight.
They made us eat the tainted crop, we had a taste and couldn’t stop
So sick with hate for what they’d done, too late for me your time has come
The pen and the sword be damned
What a piece of work is a man
So child you must fight, fight.
On common ground the poisoned seed, was sown in my country
They fenced me in and took away, the things that belonged to me
With a chill in my heart I knew
They did it to me, they’ll do it to you
So child you must fight, fight.
