Found yourself a serpent this time
Flames are spitting sure from his tongue and his eyes
Lusting for the fruits we have tried
Pluck yourself an eyelash and pray that your bones will rise

Speaking in tongues you've got gin in your belly
Yes something was wrong from the start
With eyes wide and dark you have something to tell me
I carry your bones in my heart

Riding on horseback he came
Darkness in his fingertips, eyes just the same
Told me there was no one to blame
I was all the while clenching the omen you gave to me

Rise with the sun and the skies are wide amber
I dreamt of your calling again
You told me to run from temptations of grandeur
That come with the visions of him

Deep in my sleep,
Bones I was holding,
Swallowed by hunger to see you again
Running through fields,
Sweet seas of golden,
There it was you in the house near the grain

Dark like the night,
High like the noontime,
Bitter and begging my dear don't you go
Your eyes were all wild,
Your lips took to woo mine,
You grabbed me and tugged at my soul through your own

I knew it well then we'd go down to the river
You'd cleanse what was left of me under the tide
The sun turned to ash and your body was withered
Your bones I let go and the dream did subside

    General CommentI think this song is probably about how she falls in love with someone she knows she shouldn't/cannot be with, but thinks about them all the time, because he either left or died. The last verses illustrate in a dream how she is in love, but has lost him, and she knows she needs to let him go, but doesn't want him to.

    "Found yourself a serpent this time...lusting for the fruits we have tried." The first few lines are expressing how humanity fall into temptation, even if we know it is wrong, using the example of Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit.
    "I carry your bones in my heart." But she's in love with this person and thinks of them all the time.
    "Darkness in his fingertips, eyes just the same; told me there was no one to blame." He either left on his own account or died on accident, and she wants to blame someone, but she knows deep down that she shouldn't.
    "I dreamt of your calling again. You told me to run from temptations of grandeur that come with the visions of him." She hears him in her dreams tell her he's not worth fawning over and being in love with because it is all lust or not worth it.
    "...swallowed by hunger to see you again." She ignores what he says and still wishes to see him, awake and in her dreams.
    "running through fields sweet seas of golden
    there it was you in the house near the grain
    dark the night, high the noontime
    bitter and begging my dear don't you go." In her dreams, she is still with him, but near the end, she always begs him to not leave, a translation as to that in reality, she wishes that she could have kept him there/alive and everything would have been beautiful and simple just like running through fields(a classic love scene).
    "The sun turned to ash and your body was withered." This is where he either leaves or dies, and I'm guessing he most likely died. He probably grew sick and died or died in a fiery accident, such as a car accident or cooking incident.
    "Your bones I let go and the dream did subside." This is her in her dream finally letting him go, or her subconscious telling her that she needs to let him go and catch up with life.
