Fruit trees laden low with neglected plenty
Fruit trees laden low with neglected plenty

Write a complaint letter
Call a meeting
Call up a councillor
Call up the mayor of this town
If all the King's horses are galloping
Riderless round and around and around
They all go to ground
They all go to ground

Towers full of smoke while the mansion's empty
Towers full of smoke while the mansion's empty

Bring us a list of the people who live here
Are they all accounted for?
Is everyone here in the square
with the pictures and cameras and flowers
are they all accounted for?
Are they lost in the ledgers
and pledges of people
who promised to plan for the worst
The dam it has burst
The defences you put into place are not fit for the task
And they all go to ground
They all go to ground
