lyrics

It's gonna be a long, long day
Last in the valley today
The nail and the rope hold fast
Wrap a ribbon to the pole I pass

It's gone - it's on - it's only half begun
It's only half begun now it's gone - it's gone
Along - the rows - you hold the rope you chose
You hold the rope you chose along the row - the row

Swing out the bottom boys cause we caught the bottom of the low
If you swing out below

If you swing on by - If you swing on by
Down if you're dead to the wide

(When the) light breaks over the hill
Greet the ghosts along the crimson field
Float like driftwood limbs
Like a grain across the eye I swim

It's on - it's gone - it's only half begun
It's only half begun now it's gone - it's gone
Go down - you drown
In a shade of mountain brown
The hand that hold you down and then you drown - you drown

Swing out the bottom boys cause we caught the bottom of the low
Swing out below..

If you swing on by - If you swing on by
Hold what you hide - If you swing on by

about

Northern Arms Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Northern Arms are masters of haunting moods and striking storytelling. Helmed by singer and songwriter Keith Richard Peirce, the ten-piece band incorporates dark imagery with a musical mystique that hits on jazz, folk, and gospel, and blends it with gothic Americana in the vein of 16th Horsepower, Tom Waits and legendary Austin cult faves Lift to Experience.
