"Funeral Beds" as written by and Connor Phillip Jacobus Braden Isaac Lawrence....
These great fields are stretching,
Taking me oh so far
Great fields are stretching,
Savannah stretching oh so far

And this dry air is taking
My girl and it's oh so hard
And i wish i had a melody for a songbird to sing back my love

Oh my savannah,
Did it have to be so hard?
Oh my savannah,
Taking all my love and all my heart

Tailor won't you make me
The finest suit so dark and black and grey
And old john won't you lend me
The finest gun your eyes have ever laid

The fastest bullet flying,
So quick nobody ever feel no pain
'Cause the plains they took my baby
And i'm gonna take her to the funeral beds to lay

And oh my savannah,
Did it have to be so hard?
Oh my savannah,
Taking all my love and all my heart

Oh no no ...x3

And i'm struggling,and I'm stumbling,
And i need to start
I'm struggling, and i'm stumbling
I need you in my heart

Tailor won't you make me
The finest suit so dark and black and grey
And old john won't you lend me
The finest gun your eyes have ever laid

The fastest bullet flying,
So quick nobody ever feel no pain
'Cause the plains they took my baby
And i'm gonna take her to the funeral beds to lay

I hate to say i love you,
But oh goddamn i love you,
You know i do
But you're gone away, gone away, gone away

These great fields are stretching,
Taking me oh so far

    Song MeaningWhenever I hear this song, I always envision a man who loses his wife to the Dust Bowl. Pretty obvious.

    The more subjective part is the last half of the song. It seems as though he's seeking to exact his revenge on something or someone, whether it be a consideration of suicide or he's disturbed by the death of his wife and fears for others to suffer the same fate; thus, he decides the only option is to put them out of their misery before it can happen. At least, that would explain the gun-rampage and the need for it to be painless.

    Just my two-cents.

    Song MeaningWAIT!

    I FIGURED IT OUT.

    His wife is dying of pneumonia (or what have you) during the Dust Bowl, but to put her out of her misery (or maybe they can't afford medicine/doctor), HE SHOOTS HER. That's why we wanted everything to be quick, painless, and to be done right. That's why he's "gonna take her to the funeral beds to lay".


    I just blew my own mind.
