lyrics

BLOOD OF THE HUNT

With this lever down, son, this rabbit's yours
Never so hard-won--all bruised and sore
The skin and the bones aren't the meat; the meat
not the blood of the hunt: victory and defeat

Life in a fog, and the dogs are bound
tonight to an engine dead and unloved in the yard

With this simple downspout, we save the rain
to irrigate the greens, the fruit, the grains
With this lever down, son, the farm is yours
and the sluggish land will bear more than ever before
