about

In a way this is a landscape song, but where it takes place, I am not sure. Maybe it's somewhere on earth, but it could as well be on another planet.

lyrics

STONE

Stone is the nature
of this harsh country
an unforgiven crust
with nothing to lose

No road, path, trail
only grit leads to
the hidden house
build in solid rock

At the bare foot
of the mountain
in deep shadow
away from the heat

The house is a hole
a room, a cave
it's a solid box
with sand and bones

Stay out of the heat
stay out of the wind
stay where you are
Don't come after me

The walls bear paint
and hands, fish, beasts
a world long gone, telling
how the moon was a stone
that broke at dawn
into gravel and dust
the driest rain
the hottest snow
dispersed by the wind
in a world of stone
in a world of stone

This ghost and spirit realm
of snakes and lizards
where mummies live
in the mist of sand winds

Of sun bleached bones
sand polished skulls
strange blue objects
in the glow of the moon

Stay out of the heat
stay out of the wind
stay where you are
Don't come after me
