"Love Is All" as written by and Kristian Matsson....
Well I walk upon the river like it's easier than land
Evil's in my pocket and your will is in my hand
Oh, your will is in my hand

And I'll throw it in the current that I stand upon so still
Love is all, from what I've heard, but my heart's learned to kill
Oh, mine has learned to kill

Oh, I said I could rise
From the harness of our goals
Here come the tears
But like always, I let them go
Just let them go

And now spikes will keep on falling from the heavens to the floor
The future was our skin and now we don't dream anymore
No, we don't dream anymore

Like a house made from spider webs and the clouds rolling in
I bet this mighty river's both my savior and my sin
Oh, my savior and my sin

Oh, I said I could rise
From the harness of our goals
Here come the tears
But like always, I let them go
Just let them go

Well I walk upon the river like it's easier than land
Evil's in my pocket and your strength is in my hand
Your strength is in my hand

And I'll throw you in the current that I stand upon so still
Love is all, from what I've heard, but my heart's learned to kill
Oh, mine has learned to kill

Oh, I said I could rise
From the harness of our goals
Here come the tears
But like always, I let them go
Just let them go

    General CommentI think it's about the relationship, the communion of fisherman and fish.

    "I walk upon the river like it's easier than land
    Evil's in my pocket and your will is in my hand
    Oh, your will is in my hand"

    The Fly Fisherman walks through the water as easy as walking on land. The evil that's in their pocket is a knife or club used to kill the fish. The will that's in their hand is the fish caught on their line, the fish are being reeled in against their will.

    "And I'll throw it in the current that I stand upon so still
    Love is all, from what I've heard, but my heart's learned to kill
    Oh, mine has learned to kill"

    When you fly fish it's important to stand still in the current so not to spook the fish. Most if not all the fisherman I know, fish because they love to do it, it brings them closer to nature. They have all learned to kill these animals at some point or have killed them. their hearts have learned to kill.

    "And now spikes will keep on falling from the heavens to the floor"

    The spikes are the fly's, the lures casting from the rod to the bottom of the river.

    "I bet this mighty river's both my savior and my sin
    Oh, my savior and my sin"

    Its his savior because he's closer to nature but it's his sin because he knows he'll kill the fish once he's caught it.



    "Oh, I said I could rise
    From the harness of our goals

    The fish rises to fly, the fisherman uses the fly to catch the fish. Its the harness of both their goals. Both their goals are to catch their prey.

    "Here come the tears
    But like always, I let them go
    Just let them go"

    Here come the tears, here comes the tragedy of killing. But like always the fisherman let's them go, out of love. This is a common thing in Fly Fishing most fisherman let the fish go, they only do it for the love of the sport and to hold the mystery and beauty of nature in the palm of their hand. Love is all.

    This also could be an allusion to Hemmway's Big Two-Hearted River
