lyrics

The air was stale
I was thin and pale
As I wheezed the words of my last breath
Though death was near
I was crystal clear
I said, mark my words, this is not the end

The town was terrified
as I closed my eyes
they knew they had done me wrong
For there’s a weight in the chest
Though they might try their best
They’ll never get it gone

Bury it down, deep deep down
Go bury the hatchet
Bury it down, deep in the ground
Go bury the hatchet somewhere else

I can hear my baby crying
his temperature was rising
Oh I could feel them burning to keep the village pure
There was fever in his blood
When they drowned him in the mud
And buried deep what they could not endure

Bury it down, deep deep down
Go bury the hatchet
Bury it down, deep in the ground
Go bury the hatchet somewhere else

The wind is howling with a sound like shouting
so loud it reaches the deaf
And brings a heat so hot that it melts the crop
and truly angers the dead

Bury it down, deep deep down
Go bury the hatchet
Bury it down, deep in the ground
Go bury the hatchet somewhere else

Bury it down (make sure to hide it)
Go bury the hatchet
Bury it down (where they’ll never find it)
Go bury the hatchet somewhere else
