"Yellowman" as written by and Sean Reinert Paul Masvidal....
His eyes are closed his face pale asleep
On the ground a newspaper reads
The blood has spilled again
And you just dream my yellowman
The angels burn a torch to keep us warm

His lungs are wide awake but he won't breathe
He spits out the ocean and we dream
Like goldfish in a bowl
They think we're free
You're tying rocks to clouds to stay above the crowds
The angels burn a torch to keep us warm

the blood has spilled again

and you just dream
You never see the bloodstains on the battlefield
The angels burn a torch to keep us warm

    General CommentI think Yellowman is about someone who dies in a war without even seeing action.
