wanderers this morning came by
where did they go
graceful in the morning light
to banner fair
to follow you softly
in the cold mountain air

through the forest
down to your grave
where the birds wait
and the tall grasses wave
they do not
know you anymore

dear shadow alive and well
how can the body die
you tell me everything
anything true

in the town one morning i went
staggering through premonitions of my death
i don't see anybody that dear to me

dear shadow alive and well
how can the body die
you tell me everything
anything true

jesse
i don't know what i have done
i'm turning myself to a demon
i don't know what i have done
i'm turning myself to a demon

    My OpinionOutstanding, to say the least.

    Despite what people say, I am kind of into this trend of bands doing covers of songs other bands have just released. I don't find it pretentious at all.
