This song is by Cake Bake Betty and appears on the album To the Dark Tower (2008).

Found yourself a serpent this day
Flames are spitting sore from
His tongue and his eyes
Thirsting for the fruits we have dried
Pluck yourself an eye lash and
Pray that your bones will rise
Speaking in tongues, you've
Got gin in your belly
As something was wrong from the start
With eyes widened dark, you have
Something to tell me
I carry your bones in my heart

Riding on horseback he came
Darkness in his fingertips,
Eyes just the same
Told me there was no one to blame
I was all the while clenching
The omen you gave to me

Rise with the sun
And the skies of white ember
I dreamt of your calling again
You told me to run from
Temptations of grandeur that
Come with the visions of him

Deep in my sleep
Bones I was holding
Swallowed by hunger
To see you again
Running through fields
Sweet seas of golden
There it was you
In the house near the grain

Dark like the night
High like the noontime
Bitter and begging
My dear, don't you go
Your eyes were all wild
Your lips took to mine
You grabbed me and tugged
At my soul through your own

I knew it well then,
We'd go down to the river
You'd cleanse what was left of me
Under the tide
The sun turned to ash
And your body was withered
Your bones are let go
And the dream did subside
