call the boy
he's down the hollow
cull the tide
distill the rye

now it's time for medication
stallions on the eiderdown

the stained horizon
ablaze with revolvers
stampedes and bridles

exorcise the family demons
stallions on the eiderdown

the stained horizon
of dark rein and rider
the steed named golgotha

    General CommentSo some things to know. Eiderdown is a type of comforter or blanket, and Golgotha is the hill Christ was crucified. That being said, I have no idea what the song is about.

    General CommentI have no idea what the song is about but I think the title comes from the book Suttree, by Cormac Mccarthy. When the title character is hallucinating during a fever he sees a general riding into battle on a horse called Golgotha, or something. I don't know if this is a reference to something else, but I couldn't find anything on google one way or the other. The audiobook is on youtube.
