about

Written by Riley in 2015, this song speaks of the forbidden D word. Death. We put so much effort into funerals and receptions that could mean nothing to the departed. This song speaks about celebrating their time spent on earth and reconnecting their body to the earth when they pass on.

lyrics

Dying Ground

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Lay me on a pyre
Where the forest meets the sea
Set the raft on fire
As the tide takes hold of me

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Carry me to the woods
Lay me down under a tree
Leave me for the wolves
Let them devour me

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me

Burn me on a cliff
'Til my body is no more
Toss my ashes to the wind
With the vultures I will soar

When they carry me down to my dying ground
Don't you weep for me
When my time has come, and I must move on
Don't you dare mourn for me
