From the dusty mesa
Her looming shadow grows
Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
She twines her spines up slowly
Towards the boiling sun
And when I touched her skin
My fingers ran with blood

In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom
And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands

When the last light warms the rocks
And the rattlesnakes unfold
Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

And rise with me forever
Across the silent sand
And the stars will be your eyes
And the wind will be my hands

    General CommentWe need not beat around the bush with this song.

    From the dusty May sun
    Her looming shadow grows

    (The sin of Eve helps spread Satan's "looming shadow" globally, as "sunset" matures to nightfall)

    Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote

    (the "shadow" is death dealing power, empowered by the sin of the woman)

    (Eve's effect continues on in time:)


    She twines her spines up slowly
    Towards the boiling sun
    And when i touched her skin
    My fingers ran with blood

    (The sacrificial victim sings:)

    In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
    I came walking with the wind (Satan) to watch the cactus bloom

    And strange hands halted me (the ritual), the looming shadows danced (demons)

    I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands (of the sacrifice handlers)

    Nightfall:

    When the last light warms the rocks
    And the rattlesnakes unfold
    Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

    (the sacrifice decomposes)

    And rise with me forever
    Across the silent sand
    And the stars will be your eyes
    And the wind will be my hands

    [The sacrificed one joins Satan in the hereafter)
