trees of autumn fire
yellow brown and red
sinking in the mire
bowing down their heads
whispering that all things
ceases to exist
apple cores and smoke rings
lovers in the mist

remember what you came in here for
that he had to go
sooner than you'll know
you're an open door to an empty store
fill the shelves again
fill them while you can

in comes the intruder
our least expected guest
it tiptoes like a cougar
it finds us at our best
struggling for protraction
seasons in the sun
(one more season in the sun)
begging for one last fraction
of what we had begun

remember what you came in here for
that the bells will toll
sooner than you know
you're an open door to an empty store
fill the shelves again
fill them while you can

with a list in his mind
and a hole in his eye
and a hood on his head
and our time on his side
and a scythe in his hand
and a broad smiling face
and a hovering walk
and a bend on his back
he has come to collect

    General Commentim going to go out on a limb a say that the intruder is death. i don't think its neccesary to elaborate the lyrics really speak for themselves. whats really interesting is the second person being adressed. i do not know why but im seeing a girl who is really desperate to cling to life, and that is not just material life but a spiritual life, that is a meaningful life. a life filled with life! this girl is visiting her boyfriend or maybe just a guy she likes. this is not the best guy, probably he's not a very nice guy, but she's desperate and shell take anything. she's an open store because all her defenses are down, and inside all is empty because she has nothing left, but she's hoping this guy can fill her with something.
