"You Will Miss Me When I Burn" as written by and Will Oldham....
[Palace Brothers Cover]

When you have no one
No one can hurt you
When you have no one
No one can hurt you

In the corners
There is light
That is good for you
And behind you
I have warned you
There are awful things

Will you miss me
When I burn
And will you eye me
With a longing
It is longing
That I feel
To be missed
For to be real

When you have no one
No one can hurt you
When you have no one
No one can hurt you

Will you miss me
When I burn
And will you close
The others' eyes
It would be
Such a favor
If you would blind them

There is absence
There is lack
There are wolves here abound
You will miss me
When I turn around

When you have no one
No one can hurt you
When you have no one
No one can hurt you

    General Commentawesome cover and song!!! I don't understand the following lines though:

    And will you close
    The others' eyes
    It would be
    Such a favor
    If you would blind them

    Anybody got a clue?
