I am the October man
I dream of many things
This is my desire

This melancholia
This lure of golden wings
Isolation

I am the October man
I live for no-one
This is my damnation

I dream of many things
The rape of angels
Transformation

This odour of desire
These fumes of funeral fire
This is my celebration

I am the October man
I dream of many things
This is my desire

    My OpinionI don't really know what this song is about, although I do remember reading a Bill Nelson interview where he mentioned that a lot of strange things happen to him in autumn. I guess this is related.

    Anyway, this track is phenomenal and features the best e-bow guitar playing I've ever heard.
