Текст песни: 30 Red Houses

The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing
The birds are sweetly singing

Streaming like sparrows
The great star in the sky
And on that hill
Are thirty red houses
Thirty red houses
Upon a red hill
And thirty dead horsies
Upon a dead hill
I stand on a white hill and red hill and green hill
There's thirty great horsies arising
But let's just take four, sweet number
Just add one to the trinity
But none add to the triad
The stars [?]
Scan the stars
The light is leaving us all

We know the light is leaving us all
Mark and remember, remember the witch of Endor
Remember, remember and mark the dust in your dark home
In the tunnel, the tight black night is humming with blood
And buzzing with stars that shoot you out like a flower
And the birds are sweetly singing
And the street lights are shocked with flies
And the sun sings and sings slow
Over your bed and the birds are sweetly singing
But the light is leaving you all

And in the first book
And in the last book
And in all the books in between
And between the books and the words
There is something at war with nothing
There is someone at war with no one
And everything at war with you
Your left eye is at war with your right eye
And your lips are at war with your tongue
And the jaw is flaming
And just over beyond the hill
The birds sing so sweetly
And through the flames they see
That the light is leaving them all
