The Threads That Weave

We are the threads that weave
We are the busy bees
We are the fabric and the seams
The reason why we achieve

We are the warp and weft
We earn our daily bread
And we work and we work
Cos hard work brings success

We’re born out of industry
Cotton sewn through history
We’re revolutionary
We work while others sleep

We’re in the bricks and mortar
We’re the mothers fathers sons and daughters
The very DNA
Of what make this city great 

We are the wool the wind the twine
We’re crafted tailored and designed
We’re the sign of the cross
We are temples, synagogues and mosques

We interlock and bisect
We criss cross and interject
We are the textile of time
The fundamentals of life

We are the battlers and fighters
We invented all nighters
We’re in the pulse the heartbeat the sound
We are the earth the sky the clouds

We are the contour lines
We are the Isobars
We’re ugly beautiful we carry battle scars

Success is our main goal
Our defence is our attack
And if you give us your soul
We’ll give you our heart and soul back
