woman and child
like a feather falls from the sky
so dark, so dark
in the moonlight

naked we worship the night sky
no man can hold what the darkness can sew, you're gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

tounges like horns, violently born
a new soul
the soft dead awake alive in love
hard for the hangman's daughter

naked we worship the night sky
naked we worship the night sky
no man can hold what the darkness can sew, you're gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

no man can hold what the darkness can sew, you're gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

gonna leave an ugly skull when you go
gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

no man can hold what the darkness can sew, you're gonna leave an ugly skull when you go - when you go

no man can hold what the darkness can sew, you're gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

gonna leave an ugly skull when you go
gonna leave an ugly skull when you go
gonna leave an ugly skull when you go
gonna leave an ugly skull when you go

    General Commenti used to be friends with a musician who was hugely influenced by acid bath and agents of oblivion, and he told me that this was "my" song.
    the song seems pretty self-explanatory to me.
    "hangman's daughter" means an un-attainable woman.

    General Commentseems as if its the daughter is evil in the pure form, only the dead can love her, seems also as if it was caused by ostricization by society, and she is reacting accordingly, lots of pagan imagery too-easily the best from them

    General CommentActually, this song is about the dead coming back to claim the Hangman's Daughter...

    tounges like horns, violently born
    a new soul
    the soft dead awake alive in love
    hard for the hangman's daughter

    Visually, the dead awake in their coffins and rise from the grave due to a pagan ritual performed to come and take a prized possession from the one that took their lives.

    General CommentThe above comment is the only one that approaches rationality, intelligence, and a general understanding of the english language. As for everyone else.......this album is NOT your personal soundtrack for firing up those crack rocks that you so greatly love. Put the pipe down and go back to school.

    General Commentthe idiot above clearly listens to music extreamly litterally and without any sort of passion. Robot.

    this song (to me) speaks of how we are all born love abititous, in search of our true love, but the hangmans daughter must pay for her fathers faults and does not have a true love. its not her fault tho...

    the soft dead awake alive in love
    hard for the hangman's daughter

    General Comment"no man can hold what the darkness can sew"
    I always figured it was no man can hold what the darkness can sow... Made more sense, coupled with the images of the dead and the hangman's daughter.
