And each strand of her hair is really insect eyes
And each hole in her tongue is always occupied
By the milk of the sun

And each hair on her head is fields of gold wheat
And I'm lying on my back
And I'm falling asleep
Mm hmm hmm hmm

And each lash in her eye in really white roots
And each line in her skin is really red roots
Mm hmm hmm hmm

And the neck her head's on is a tunnel of dawn
But darkness will come
But darkness will come
For sure, it's gonna come

And the breast on her chest is where I take my rest
Is where I have my fun
Is where I have my fun
Mm hmm hmm hmm

And the one long red nail that shoots from her toe
Is tickling my blood
And shifting its flow
Mm hmm hmm hmm

And each strand of her hair is really insect eyes
And each hole in her tongue is always occupied
By the milk of the sun

And I'm always late, 'ways late
And I'm always late
Yeah, I'm always late
Yeah, I'm always late

Ah ah ah ah...

And your black two lips of time
And your black two lips of time
And yours hand rejoice in mine

Ah ah ah ah...

And that seed, it grows all day
And that seed, it grows all night
And our veins are intertwined

Ah ah ah ah...

    General CommentI like the end when it changes up and the guitar gets real intense. So good.

    General CommentA song of love, a song of lust:

    General CommentThis is a song of obsession. The singer is telling us about someone special in his life. It could be his girlfriend, wife, or just some girl he's never talked to. The fact is that it is a great song and a little disturbing.

    General CommentI'm surprised this song doesn't have more comments...really, it is amazing. It's about obsession/love/lust. It's disturbing and wonderful.

    General CommentI love how a few of the songs on Rejoicing in the Hands actually refer to the title of the album.

    General CommentThe genre for this song should be called "Dark Folk" because that's exactly what it is, dark. Despite being a song of infatuatoin and even love, you just can't help but feeling the creepy side of it. Awesome.
