Her blood is our blood too, I know.
And I feel all of it too, and you know, you know.

1936 breathing.
Garnet her stone, ever gleaming.
And Edith's hope is for love
but she doesn't hear of her grandchildren grieving, no.
Eldest raised by Al Ringling, spirit granted from Sing Sing.
All of her heart is for drugs
and she doesn't care that everyone is leaving.

Her blood is our blood too, I know.
And I feel all of it too, and you know, and you know.
Her blood is our blood too, and I know.
I feel all of it too, and you know.

And halfway in the hour, toward the mid of the night,
We met our hands, despite our wicked fight,
And we will sort our way around
This awful mess that all our genes have thrown around.

Her blood is our blood too, and I know.
And I feel all of it too, and you know.
Her blood is our blood too, and I know.
And I feel all of it too.
Her blood is our blood too, I know.

    Song MeaningEdith Ringling was the wife of one of the Ringling Brothers; she was something of a matriarch and helped run the circus business. The band Phox is from Baraboo, Wisconsin, where the Ringling Brothers started out, so I guess "her blood is our [their] blood, too".

    I don't know if Edith was into drugs or if her son Robert was actually raised by his uncle Al Ringling. But the "wicked fight" could be a reference to how the Ringlings fought over control of the circus (Edith was part of this, too).
