"Tomb Of Liegia" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham and Stephen Carpenter....
In 1969
I killed a man of mine
In a small Montana town
I was hunted down by hounds

Hear the light has cried
Their voices dry and hollow
Hear the crowd cheer
They cheer me to the gallows

In 1985
I was doing time alive
I made a plan to escape
And live as the lady of the lake

Hear the crowd of ghosts
Their voices dry and hollow
Can't you hear their calls?
They cheer me to the gallows

1995
Was the year I came up for trial
I listened to his song
And watched the sun make the shadows long

Hear the light have cried
His voices is dry and hollow
Hear the crowd call
They cheer me to the gallows
Hear the light called
His voices is dry and follow
Hear the light have called
In a voice that's hollow

    General CommentIt seems to me that it's refering to actual events. For some reason I get a mental image of those Jonestown Massacre photo's when I hear this song.

    General Comment"The light have called?" That's not right at all. Here:
    Chorus 1:
    Hear the nighthawks cry, their voices dry and hollow,
    Hear the crowd cheer, they cheer me to the gallows.

    Chorus 3:
    Hear the nighthawk cry, his voice is dry and hollow.
    Hear the crowd call, they cheer me to the gallows.
    Hear the nighthawk call, his voice is dry and hollow.
    Hear the nighthawk call, in a voice that's hollow.

    General CommentThe incessant keyboard riff in this song annoys the shit out of me...over and over again for five minutes, like...it just grates on my nerves. Otherwise, some interesting lyrics.
