Lyrics



KORE


At the omphalos
The navel of the Earth
I stumble through snow
Newly fallen
In a remote valley
At the top of the world

At the omphalos
The navel of the Earth
The bear trap bites the foot
At the ridge where the blood runs blue
I am shocked at the carnage
Though Iíve lugged it cold and heavy such a long and lonely time

At the omphalos
The navel of the Earth
My flesh drags itself
Up and down the mountainsides
Forwards and backwards at once
Making bloody trails
Of memory
And warning

At the omphalos
The navel of the Earth
At the omphalos
The navel of the Earth
