Fox Confessor Brings The Flood

Album: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood (2006)
  • Driving home I see those flooded fields
    How can people not know what beauty this is
    I've taken it for granted my whole life
    Since the day I was born

    Clouds hang on these curves like me
    And I kneel to the wheel
    Of the fox confessor on splendid heels
    And he shames me from my seat
    And on my guilty feet
    I follow him in retreat

    What purpose in these deeds
    Oh fox confessor please
    Who married me to these orphaned blues
    "It's not for you to know, but for you to weep and wonder
    When the death of your civilization precedes you."

    Will I ever see you again
    Will there be no one above me to put my faith in
    I flooded my sleeves as I drove home again Writer/s: Neko Case, Paul Rigby
