"August" as written by and Eileen Rose/bull Giadone....
It was the Spring,
When we met our renewal.
And all around us,
was madness and ruin.

As if awaiting its prey,
the ascending melee,
pulled the sun down.

In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.
One last kiss,
her last wish,
was that this moment would last forever.
In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.

Torn away,
torn in two.
Destiny, where are you?

It was the Spring,
When we met our renewal.
And all around us,
was madness and ruin.

It was the Spring,
When we met our denial.
It was the Spring...
in August we laid her down.

In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.
One last kiss,
her last wish,
was that this moment would last forever.
In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.

In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.
In August we laid her down,
in August we gave her to the ground.

    General CommentI think this is about someone dying....possibly his mother.

    In a recorded interview, he says it is about his fantasy goth girl wearing leather and stuff....I had to laugh when I saw that. Considering his obvious emotions when describing the song "Brother" I think he made up this explaination because the real meaning is too painful to repeat.

    My InterpretationI think the songs of this cd are connected somehow. I enjoy listening to it and to try to creat a whole story from its songs.
    It's a great cd that took me sometime to really feel it.
