lyrics

Brother Jim
The road is lying ahead, ahead
There’s my companion laying out his bed
Oh my brother don’t you shout
Fear them angels crawlin’ about

They used to talk to me
Like I was their child
Tracked me down the valley
When I ain’t known I died
Meteors are waltzin’
And rubbin’ their cheeks
And the kiss in the darkness
Keeps on pickin’ at my leaves

I said take
I said take

Everything from me

Take me to the river
Wrap me in your blood
Teach me of the wanderin’ light
Skin me to the candle
Lightin’ up the sun
That damn near burned my soul

Somewhere my house is burning up in flames
Reaping up the morning and digging in the day
Scared eyes don’t know how to swiftly move on
And the shape in the nightlight
Kept me cooped up ‘til dawn

Brother Jim, your eyes are soft
With your fine suit on can’t you let me know how?
Brother Jim, we took a vow
But you know we’re the kind
That are ready to fall

And I said take
Take everything from me

Take me to the river
Wrap me in your blood
Teach me of the wanderin’ light
Skin me to the candle
Lightin’ up the sun
That damn near burned my soul
