free from your past
free of your future too
there's nothing left to rise above but you

show me your ocean red
kiss the tears that stain my neck
drug me with visions untrue

but i own a photograph
you laying naked upon your back
safe in a stone house by the sea

there's nothing true and nothing's real
but i remember one clear feel
warm beneath your gentle company

while i lay dying upon some bed
i hope that you remember this
the only one i want to see is you

    General Commentthe imagery of the stone house by the sea and "lying naked upon on your back" reminds me of Poe's Annabel Lee. I wonder if perhaps this is a song about someone who died.

    General CommentProbably about Jarboe, Gira's former lover/ partner of the Swans. So different than past works by Gira but still as powerful. Great to see Swans are back together, even without Jarboe.
