Songs for the Gods: Lucy Belle

A band worth checking out if you like your music a bit out of the ordinary. Unfortunately this song is not up on Youtube but you can find others. I am partial to this live version of Eternal.

Faun Fables: Lucy Belle
from Family Album
Lucy Belle, Lucy Belle, in your little house
friends have all gone away today
sitting there in the sun
dig a hole for everyone you know
dig them up on a rainy day.
Lucy Belle, Lucy Belle, I know what you are
no way around the fact that you’re a dog
Barking at the little things crawling in the grass
you know everything better than I because…
because a dog is a man’s best friend is a slave
is a thief is a wolf, is a runner
for the one-eyed god of the dead.
To ride a lonely dog over the bones
of the lords of this world,
ride an animal down
to the kingdom of stone
build a wall around mankind
brick him in.
City bird, talking bird
in your little tree.
Lucy Belle barks at you but not at me.
When the final battle comes
she’ll be on your side I know
you’re just animals.
City bird, talking bird
you don’t seem to mind
living on scraps of what we’ve left behind.
But I think it’s just as well
I can’t understand your angry chatter.
Because…
Because a bird is a man’s prize is a slave
is a thief is a crow is a runner
for the one-eyed god of the dead.
To ride a lonely bird over the bones
of the lords of this world,
ride an animal down
to the kingdom of stone
build a wall around mankind
brick him in.
Brick us in.

Hail Wodan!
