Gravediggress dig me
A hole I can bury
All of my love in
All of my holy

Old gravediggress
By the dried out brooke
Whose babble turned to gravel
And my company took

I used to watch the butterflies
Pretend that it's spring
When December, can't remember
Not a damn cold thing

Old gravedigger
By the burnt out tree
Who held a hive a murmur
But no more bees

I used to hear the wind
Made speak and sing the leaves
Seems so long I felt
But a shy and tender breeze

Old scarecrow
Wounded at the knee
Lost your button eyes
And most of your stuffing
Hay for a heart
And hay for a brain
If your momma was sweeter
Then you might be sane

    General CommentSounds like a song about the Winter time and how it suddenly goes from cozy with leaves and scarecrows to white and everything's kinda dead and buried under snow. Maybe it's about seasonal affective disorder.

    General CommentIt always seemed to me that this song is about a time when things are dark and everything goes deep into the earth to wait for spring, but in terms of your soul's journey. Sometimes you have to go deep and dark. you want to bury your love and holy somewhere safe until it is safe for them to come to the surface.
