lyrics

What you do not eat I will devour
Right down to the core
Until the seed falls out
Sinks into the ground
And the tree bursts forth
And the fruit falls down

In the soft moist loam
In the undergrowth
Where all creatures know
What that seed is worth
I will lay me down
And I will sink in too
Just like the seed
I will feed the new

In the soft loam
In the undergrowth
Where all creatures know
What a seed is worth
I will lay me down
And I will sink in too
Just like the seed
I will feed the new

What you do not eat I will devour
Right down to the core
Until the seed falls out
Sinks into the ground
And the tree bursts forth
And the fruit falls down

And my leaves will wave
Hello goodbye
Hello goodbye
Hello goodbye

Yeah my leaves will wave
Hello goodbye
Hello goodbye
Hello goodbye

Can you hear them...
Whispering
Their secrets learned
From the sun

Can you hear them...
Whispering
Their secrets learned
From the sun

What you do not eat I will devour
Right down to the core
Until the seed falls out
Sinks into the ground
And the tree bursts forth
And the fruit falls down

What you do not eat I will devour
Right down to the core
