The Knife Minerals Lyrics

White sand made up of shells upon which rests carious rock

Then prismatic feldspar between these and former ones

Hard white rock with yellow spots

A heap of white balls beneath white sand

Same process now going on shore, living iron found in it

Sand white from decomposition of feldspar in places

Every rock is covered with pistiform concretions in places

Impossible to tell whether it is Breccia of modern or older days

Lower beds of white sand become filled with large boulders of lower rocks

Beneath this comes a line of another stratum

More soily and contains large and more numerous shells

A regular bed of oysters remains attached to the rocks
