"Caravan" as written by and Michael David Rosenberg....
Poor the petrol can
Around this caravan
And watch the flames take all you own

There's a girl who understands
Like the back of her two hands
She's all you need to know

'Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find
There's Braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind
There's heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind

And you follow the black bird home
Through the early winter snow
Your foot prints track you through the grass

And you ache just to smell her clothes
And her cooking down on the stove
You see her face in everyone you pass

'Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find
There's Braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind
There's heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind

And you walk down to her window
And press your face against the glass
Only to find that she is happy in his arms

'Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find
There's Braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind
There's heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind

    General CommentThis song and band are both great. This song has to be about a women leaving a man and taking advantage of the fact that he nearly idolizes her. Making her his whole world. The petrol can around the caravan must be a metaphor for burning down the path in life he had been following with this woman. The chores must stand for the fact that there is no direction or map to follow, given to us in life. And to him it seems those who do evil are rewarded and those who remain kind lose.

    And the whistling is awesome
