Even For An Islander A tragic love song set in a pseudo colonial world. Lyrics: Making angels in the ash and peeling rose petals for her eyes It's beauty holds all the surprise and the relief from dejection that you can buy with cash For a moment is it real she's got a knack for peeling roses but she sings in dark snows yes her voice nourishes me full like a meal Even for an islander she understands me well although i'm from the mainland.  She's got the tongue of city folks and with her words she can provoke the gravity of my mind pulled in a swell It's amazing despite the ash of burned houses we took with steel her journey must have been unreal she finds it in her to let me undo her sash In secret after 3 moon turns she smiled as she brought our child from my shell, the girl was wild But then my brothers took her Somehow they had learned Even for an islander she loved me so well although we came to take them she made me understand with her words she can land thoughts of forgiveness she made me understand After child they came for her and stole the petals from her eyes when they hung her from the skies and they say soldiers fight for honor Even for an islander she became so dark although I thought to save her I just stood Even though I’m from the mainland I thought I had heart, although I've stopped planting roses stopped planting roses stopped planting roses

I want to know more about this. I think this is deep subject matter with disarmingly sweet melody
