So now this is the beginning, dear
Have you come to start a fight
Oh you say you won't, but you know you might
Push the living off and say:

Oh mother please
They have no need
For your boy

I've been bitten by disease, my dear
The hurt has come within my heart
Should you say you know i might fall apart
So come darkness, shroud your end

Oh mother please
They have no need
For your boy

    General CommentForm what I can work out, Sir Arthur McCloud approached Moses Early regarding The Missing McCloud Boys, and they started a fight. Arthur McCloud wins, and possibly with his dying breath, Moses Early teases "They have no need for your boy", giving a hint that there is something higher at work, some sort of cult, perhaps? Don't know really, can't wait for The PFI story to come ot light, sounds like it's gonna be a good one.

    General CommentA very haunting track... very Western sounding in scope. Claudio uses his voice to creepy effect on this song. Very cool.

    General CommentI really love the music in this song. Claudio's change of voice gives it an almost eery tone.

    General CommentWell Id say that just about the only obvious thing about this song now, before the release of the album or any stories around it, is that this part of the Prize Fighters' story is told by coheed. the only other assumption ill make is that Moses ends up killing Arthur McCloud. And thats just because of the title of their other song "The Missing McCloud Boys". Another guess could be Arthur is the boys' father and he goes after Moses to ask questions about the boys missing, hearing that moses may know where they are, and fights him and dies. All of these assumptions are a little much considering there is no info on Jesse's stories as the Prizefighter Inferno thus far, but I always love making guesses anywho !

    General CommentI think what this is, is Jesse is watching Moses and Sir Arthur from some kind of cover and what he see's there is a lackluster sort of fight, Iam not sure what they are fighting about. One of them seems to be more forthcoming, the other is more defensive. If I were to guess I would say it is Moses coming to attack Sir Arthur, and during the fight there is a accident and McCloud is killed somehow, maybe a snake bit him? Maybe he was killed by accident by moses, fell on the knife or something. but I feel it was accidental and Moses Early covers up the death, maybe burying Arthur, hiding his corpse.

    General CommentPerhaps Arthur and Moses have already had the fight and Arthur comes home to Martha to recount or something? I mean why would he call Moses "dear", twice? The "disease" and the "hurt within his heart" might be referring to his molestation of Cecillia, their daughter. Perhaps he is admitting the truth to her and if she was already told he "might fall apart". The fight might have been because Johnny Early and Cecillia McCloud were in love and, after she was molested, Cecillia asked Johnny to run away with her, but he refused ,so she ran away with her brothers (the missing McCloud boys). Johnny may have gone to Moses and told him what Arthur had done, hence the confrontation.
