No prayers for November to linger longer

I had Tom Waits on in the truck on the way over to visit James and Brian a few nights ago, so that coupled with today being the first of the month has had this song running through my head all day:



 

No shadow

No stars

No moon

No care

November

It only believes

In a pile of dead leaves

And a moon

That's the color of bone

 

No prayers for November

To linger longer

Stick your spoon in the wall

We'll slaughter them all

 

November has tied me

To an old dead tree

Get word to April

To rescue me

November's cold chain

 

Made of wet boots and rain

And shiny black ravens

On chimney smoke lanes

November seems odd

You're my firing squad

November

 

With my hair slicked back

With carrion shellac

With the blood from a pheasant

And the bone from a hare

 

Tied to the branches

Of a roebuck stag

Left to wave in the timber

Like a buck shot flag

 

Go away you rainsnout

Go away, blow your brains out

November

 

Not yet talking about this November in Hagerstown, since today was beautiful, but I’m sure we’ll have our share of wet boots, rain and carrion shellac before long.  What a vividly depressing song, eh?  Fuck you, November.  Where do you get the balls?
