what are you about
say something secret
in an old order hush
trouble and suffering in a lovely rhythm
a homespun clapboard blackstrap thrush

devoted loyal
undertake the toil
beware of what come natural
undertake the spoil
in a fist

it was cruel
and it came all too natural
as a younger child
a headstrong folklore strawrifle crutch
thresh a crop defiles

in a fist full of sand
it came natural in a fist
full of land

    General CommentThe line "beware of what come natural" is brilliant.

    General Comment Many of his song lyrics using symbolisim with creative finesse speak volumes about generational dysfunctions that get passed down generation after generation .. The subtle that many don't see and if seen deny. This is what keeps us asleep with minds entranced..
    16 Horsepower a former group that Dee belong to has many songs that point to this..
    Splinters
    Silver saddle
    Poor Mouth.. and many more...
    Fantastic ...
