lyrics

my lover's hands were burgundy
when last she came to me
her fingertips dripped rubies
that bloomed upon her sleeve
the harvest moon, an ivory wound
that spilled its ghostly stream.
my lips formed a question;
this she told me:

"your father's hands were wandering,
his eyes were on my frame.
when you went out a-riding,
his heart burst into dark flames.
your miner's axe was howling,
black thunder cracked the sky.
the blood on my hands is his,
God's doom is mine!"

my lover's hands were twined in mine
when plans i spoke with pain.
"we'll run where hounds can never be found,
where love comes down like rain."
our pathway wound through skeletal trees,
leaves twisted, foul, and fell.
behind us, the soul of Time
was bashing his bell.

oceans eat and wildwoods clothe,
you're born and then you die.
my father's hands, they showered my mind,
my love stood lit by the sapphire sky,
our coupled hands were burgundy,
the waves below us burst --
the hand that pushed was mine,
the scream was hers.

about

The Hollows Brooklyn, New York

A contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all its roots, twists them around, and produces something else; something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang. ... more
