Black like the Black like the home of time
Green like the Green like the naive child
You can't be ready for birth
You can't be ready for life
You can't be ready for death
You can't be ready for time
Horse doctor man will you take care of us
I lost your name but I do know your alias
Dry Dry like the desert wind
Sharp like the weapons of war
Broken like the will of a slave
Cold like the eyes of a snake
You can't be ready for birth
You can't be ready for life
You can't be ready for death
You can't be ready for time
Dry like the Sharp like the Broken like the Cold like the

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of the song concerns sex between two people with a large age gap between them.
    On the ugliest level (the one my money days Yow was working on)the song describes an adult brutally raping a child. On a lighter level (doubt it's what Yow had in mind) the lyrics remind me of my own experiences with much older or much younger females. These are the things we say to ourselves and sometimes to the other party and it's definitely what I've been thinking while in the act under certain circumstances. I've been told by older women that I couldn't "possibly be ready for..." from their point of view. I vividly remember the girls back in jr high who seemed so naive to the point they were nearly like children to me. I remember the perverted point of view, where I felt so much bigger than them. More powerful and totally in control. That wasn't love-making. It was "hard." It was "cold." In those moments, pinning down my classmates, I absolutely perceived my c*ck a "weapon of war." These people come to us with their ignorance and their innocence expecting their concept of "help" but we really aren't who they think. We're someone else and they only knew our alias. -Rob McCain
