lyrics

Spread a perch of rope
Half the length with stone
Tie a whipping knot
Bind sinew and bone

Go into the fields
Search through bog and knoll
Find a pleasing lamb
For the offering pole

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Let the ashes fly

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Set fire to the sky

Gather wood and straw
Bring the fuel to sow
Seed for barleycorn
Bless the plough and hoe

Set the wood on fire
Light the hallowed pyre
Sing a song of praise
As the flames burn higher

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Let the ashes fly

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Set fire to the sky

Feed the wind with flesh
Drink from skull and bone
Sow the fields with blood
Break the rock and stone

Stain the earth with life
Call the rain and sun
Harvest fruit and grain
Praise the shining one

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Let the ashes fly

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Set fire to the sky

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Let the ashes fly

High, high, high, love
High, high, high
High, high, high
Set fire to the sky
