about

Based on the ancient English tune, “Bryd one Brere”, and inspired by the enigmatic and mysterious "Longman" chalk figure carved into the Sussex downs.

lyrics

Man on the hill
Speak free if you will
Loose your memory and speak free unto me
Show all that we should see
Enlighten me to the truth in your mystery
So I too can see
Man on the Hill
Hero on the Hill
Carved through centuries stands silent, summoning me
Tell of all you have seen
Through winters many, in the white land between the seas
Under veil of green

Drawn to the hill
Ancient, strong and still
Vast and ominous, a fear rises in me
You awaken a need
This riddle in the green
Has an answer residing in me
My mind’s eye to see
