lyrics

Black as Sackcloth

Do you ever catch a glimpse
and turn but then it's gone?
Or listen to a sound you know
the source cannot be found?

It's hiding, it's all around
but you can't get a hold
to see into the depths of it
you gotta sell your soul

The sun as black as sackcloth
the moon as red as blood
the spreading of darkness
will come swiftly from above

Take account of your life
and weigh it in a scale
the buzzing and the chirping
secrets cannot be undone
oh you know, oh you know
when the earth begins to roll
no questions, nos excuses
and nowhere you can go

Thrust in thy sickle, and reap,
for the time is come to reap,
for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Thrust in thy sickle, and reap.
