This is about a man who's love was raped and killed by five men as she picked herbs at night. The song talks about the men's lust for her ("By her taffeta lay of her hips that held sway") and his destined love for her. It eventually leads up to his killing of the men and his suicide ("I embrace where lovers rot"). He is haunted by her ghost in the fog.
