The Hive

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On the outside of football boots
We recognise branding and logos
And crave those stripes or swoops

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We believe that by wearing these artefacts
Of rubber and plastic
Our feet will be transformed
And we too will step into the promised land

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Shankly ignored the neon
Instead, he packed his players boots with
Courage
Desire
Strength
Dignity
Loyalty
Love

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Some of us create music
Some of us create noise

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Our boots fit best
When for the greater good
Of the hive.
