Someone to protect and be protected by
When the certain fury would come
Someone to respect and be respected by
When deprivation took its toll on you

No more to defend, fading away

'Cause we were always alone
We were born in the hunter's season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

Someone to remember, hold me to the ground
When the sudden glory is gone
Mother, would you send a sign, a message down?
Consolidation with your only son

No more to defend but someone to love

'Cause we were always alone
We were born in the hunter's season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

It's destiny that falls upon you
'Cause nothing remains
So long… only a miracle
Could have killed the pain
You see
Now you're gone

In silent custody
You meet my eyes
The life is long
I know you'll wait for me
Know it's you

'Cause we were always alone
We were born in the hunter's season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

    My InterpretationHunter's Season is indeed about Thomas Youngblood's mother passing away. All is actually very self-explanatory, but I myself really like this sentence: "All I really ever wanted was for you, you to die in the arms of someone". Since Thomas YOungblood's father died earlier (hence the tribute Don't You Cry on the Karma CD), his mother didn't have anyone anymore, that's why it wasn't possible for her to die in the arms of her beloved.

    What also catches my notice is that it seems that his mother battled a long time against some sort of disease because of these sentences: "We were born in the Hunter's Season" and "So long… only a miracle could have killed the pain".

    Hope this helps.

    General CommentThis is very much a stab in the dark but does anyone else think the first verse here is a reference to domestic abuse? The first two lines especially seem to suggest Thomas and his mother seeking comfort in each other, perhaps from an abusive father/husband? Could be completely wrong here though...
