about

This song was inspired by the ghosts in Watership Down

lyrics

& where were you when the sun fell?
did you almost think she'd tell?
So much blood,
so much blood,
so much blood
they surf
the flood.

Ghosts,
wild,
all night,
reflect in
each open eye

of a thousand bunnies on the hillside.
A thousand bunnies on the hillside
grow.

& where were you when I got the whim
to kill
these diseased limbs?
I woke up in an empty room.

The birds are black
and they gather in the back.
They sit in the yard,
their voices so dry
they spark.

& overhead,
the planes,
they mark the sky,
making scribbles of white.
And the people stare with hollow eyes.

I swear,
if it's ever dawn again,
and the light goes on again,
the birds,
they will take flight
across the earth.
