about

Slaves Revolt!

lyrics

sugar cane is cut and stacked to haul
to the vats where they slowly boil
fires spread and dance into the night
golden to me, this quest of the soul
common to all
the stream’s wide and cold
cross for all mankind
the foreman, he will fight
flank the house
await signal

we mustn't harm his daughters
separate them, calm, keep them safe
so through them comes a bargain
secure a barge
float to the coast
disperse
stay silent

the beggar’s wife will light an oil lamp
tell us that they've all gone to bed
muzzles flash and dogs come out instead

how could you?
traitors! all!
how could you?
how could you doom this cause?
in the mind
adrenaline
(the sound of fear)


golden to me, this quest of the soul
common to all
my face white and cold
can’t see out of my eyes
covered in burlap
lowered in the stocks
“tell my love that I will be...”
(the blade slices through the neck)
(the crowd gasps)
(the head falls into the basket)
(the basket tips, sending the head rolling
down the stairs and into the crowd)
