  1. Red Rock

From the albums R, Essential, and Tidalwave

Lyrics

There's a shadow under this red rock
In the mountains there you feel free -
Like a memory stirring the deep roots
There's a shadow under my feet.

And the mystery of the word,
And the mystery of the light,
As it burns and radiates the bush into the night --
And the misery of the mind locked in its habitat,
As it burns and cracks and flames and turns
And shakes the memory back.

There's emotion under this red rock
Like the butterfly sucking the tree -
On the horizon the rugged lumberjacks crash
There's a shadow under my feet.

And the mystery of the word
And the mystery of the light
As it burns and radiates the bush into the night --
And the misery of the mind locked in its habitat
As it burns and cracks and flames and turns
And shakes the memory back.

There's a silence under this red rock
In the tree tops the eagle's free -
Like the thunder the earth shatters life
There's a shadow under my feet.

And the mystery of the word
And the mystery of the light
As it burns and radiates the bush into the night --
And the misery of the mind locked in its habitat
As it burns and cracks and flames and turns
And shakes the memory back.
