lyrics

Down in the shade of our old man’s well,
you made me promise to never tell, on you.
In your shivering ribs, on your brown bony knees,
you drown in a gallon of familiar mead, to soothe.
When the bottle was empty and black as a vine,
father did prey for the second time, on you.

You’re alright now.

Brother, brother must you be so hard on yourself.
Lay your levy down and let him atone.
Mother, mother laying out her hand me down dress.
Father won’t hang on too long.

Carry him home.
Winter will come for the old man soon.
Pray for our souls.
And clean the bottles and cans from your old man’s room.

There’s a name above our beds, for when we get scared.
There’s no shame in what it says, but now he's far too gone.
Still remember what he said, and made you wait there.
Something underneath it all prays it isn’t happening at all.
This isn’t happening at all.

Carry him home.
Winter will come for the old man soon.
Pray for our souls.
And clean the bottles and cans from your old man’s room.
