about

This song is about the death of belief, or the death of God maybe. Or maybe it's just about growing up and realizing the things you thought were immutably true weren't anything but a monster who has been dead for a long time, washing up on a shore somewhere to be seen by someone watching the coastline from a widow's walk.

lyrics

A widow’s walk
A shore awash in blood
A carcass rots
This will be a day of bones
We walk among them
like empty cages
We will walk among
The cages empty
Empty
Caged
Empty
Cage
The starving scream of gulls
An unforgiving sky
Flesh is torn like faith
We burn these bones for light
We dig this grave
We turn this soil
Pat flat the sod
Just walk away.
