Song Description

Dark and brooding, this song challenges the listener to look at issues of race and human brotherhood from a blunt and personal perspective. The song reminds us to never allow the scars of our fellow humans to go unnoticed.

Story Behind the Song

Mankind is our business

Lyrics

MANDRAKE ROOT

Swing low my friend, have you heard
the whispering of the wind?
In the moonlit night, shadows move
before my very eyes.
An azure sky surrounds me from within
The winter dance is waiting to begin
I feel I know you now- In the dark you look like me
A brother left behind, I'd bring you back if I had eyes
Only the silence surrounds me

Swing low my friend,
your sacrifice is never going to end
In the moonlit night, a mandrake forms
and I am cold as ice
Everything they want, you must give
I see you now, but don't know how you lived
I feel I know you now - In the dark you look like me
A brother left behind, I'd bring you back if I had eyes
Only the silence surrounds me
