"Pendulum" as written by and Mark Lanegan....
Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful price to pay
He's left his life in a thunderstorm
Tears cold dark eyes upon
Swing pendulum, swing low
Got no place to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be

Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful place to leave
With frost on the limbs of a cherry tree
This cold, cold wind is buryin' me
Swing pendulum, swing slow
Got no time to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be

    General CommentIn contrast to the peaceful acceptance of "El Sol," the narrator here is bothered, haunted by the prospect of living in the cold. He's tired, he wants to lay down, he feels the cold creeping in and wants to get warm.

    General Commenti think that the song is about the absurdity of life & how is established religions are not able to help us.
