Rescue Me

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Whitewash (1990) and on the album Live: From The Ends Of The Earth (2000).

Old layers of time
Have buried the ways
The others have grown
And though sturdy and strong
His eyes open wide
With each new unknown

And oh it's for the earth that he screams in the night
He's a servant of the seasons and the morning's early light
But the troubled one he says

Rescue me, he says rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
Rescue me, he says rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
He says rescue me

And see these guilty hands
That envenom the soil
And take the like from his fields
But now these book reddened eyes
Have discovered the truth
And what it conceals

And oh it's for the earth that he screams in the night
He's a servant of the seasons and the morning's early light
But the troubled one he says

Rescue me, he says rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
Rescue me, he says rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
He says rescue me

And so the plough it will turn
And our hearts they will burn
For sair works nae easy
But oh this circle stone
And this buzzard dyke and this great unknown
It goes on and on into the distance of time

And oh it's for the earth that he screams in the night
We're servants of the seasons and the morning's early light
But the troubled ones they say

Rescue me, they say rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
Rescue me, they say rescue me
On this mountain's the only place I can see clearly
They say rescue me
