I'd been living through days
Carrying no burden
But the shit of cattle
And my resignation

Until the sun rose crimson
Crept across my limbs and
I saw that they were earthen
That they decay and worsen

And from my ginger chest, there
Came the sound of thunder
I am not a father
I am not a farmer

I tremble to speak of it.
Held her in my arms and
Pressed her to my heart and
Pressed my hand o'er her lips

I murmured words of his love
I will be his baron
With him I have an ending
With him I have completion
And the cover of night

    Lyric CorrectionCorrect lyrics from the cd booklet:

    I'd been living through days
    Carrying no burden
    But the shit of cattle
    And my resignation

    Until the sun rose crimson
    Crept across my limbs and
    I saw that they were earthen
    That they decay and worsen

    And from my ginger chest, there
    Came the sound of thunder
    I am not a father
    I am not a farmer

    I tremble to speak of it.
    Held her in my arms and
    Pressed her to my heart and
    Pressed my hand o'er her lips

    I murmured words of his love
    I will be his baron
    With him I have an ending
    With him I have completion
    And the cover of night

    General CommentThe album's about a farmer called lewis, and i think in this song he's realised that he's living a bit of a lie, and that the words he says to his wife are that which he says to his lover, who is a man so they can only be together under 'the cover of night'. maybe...

    General Commentthis song is about having a gay relationship with a God? sort of. and why subsuming oneself to a deity is fucked up? I think, or close. in context of the album, yes.
