You’re looking to me in a fight
But I’m not your answer
I was eating your body and bones
Well, we both were
I buried my love in the fire
And that got me laughing
And that got me to thinking
Nobody goes home

Saving your love for the pyres
The dead will walk, dear
If you will it hard enough
Then we all will
Then, when your legs were still young
You begged me to have you
Now I’m going to keep you
Nobody goes home

    General CommentI think maybe this is about denial of the death of a loved one and still believing that if you pray or will it hard enough the dead will wake and not return back home.
