Eddy Poet Gone (song)

(narrative in tortured voice):
It's all over now, write
Eddy is no more
It's all over now, write
Eddy is no more

(sing):
Lord help my po' soul
Like a young man
In the wrong grave
No virtue can be got
When all meaning is forgot

This stone faces east
Then it faces west
Put someone by the gate
Let me get my rest, 'cause I'm...

(refrain):
Long long long long gone
I'm long gone away from here

I hear a tapping on the door
My eye falls to the floor
My soul is nailed
To the wall of my hateful enemy

There is no peace in the precious few moments
That I walk among the ghastly terrors
Of the night filled specter
That haunts me til the dawn, 'cause I'm...
(refrain)

Every heart is dripping blood
Like the mud of horses drawn to war
Like the daggers of the loveless
Broken lover

But there is no mystery
Like an ordinary life
Taken screaming
Into the endless endless night, and I'm...
(refrain)

All your young pretty things
Take their beauty
To the darkness
Where the roots of life are born

This old man is gone
In the soggy soil
Far below the birds
Singing in the dawn
You will find my stone
You will find my stone
You will find my stone

(Repeat/fade):
It's all over now, write
(chorus) Eddy is no more
It's all over now, write
(chorus) Eddy is no more
It's all over now, write
(chorus) Eddy is no more
It's all over now, write
(chorus) Eddy is no more
