Was listening to my collection on Random today, as opposed to listening to playlists like I usually do, and "I Grieve" by Peter Gabriel came on. It was Millituned ages and ages ago for -- Faith, I think? Faith and her Hellplot, that's right.

It was only one hour ago
It was all so different then
There’s nothing yet has really sunk in
Looks like it always did
This flesh and bone
It’s just the way that you would tied in
Now there’s no-one home

I grieve for you
You leave me
‘so hard to move on
Still loving what’s gone
They say life carries on
Carries on and on and on and on

The news that truly shocks is the empty empty page
While the final rattle rocks it’s empty empty cage
And I can’t handle this

I grieve for you
You leave me
Let it out and move on
Missing what’s gone
They say life carries on
They say life carries on and on and on

Life carries on
In the people I meet
In everyone that’s out on the street
In all the dogs and cats
In the flies and rats
In the rot and the rust
In the ashes and the dust
Life carries on and on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on

It’s just the car that we ride in
A home we reside in
The face that we hide in
The way we are tied in
And life carries on and on and on and on
Life carries on and on and on

Did I dream this belief?
Or did I believe this dream?
Now I can find relief
I grieve


Something in it reminded me of Raven, today. It touches on backstory (In the ashes and the dust/Life carries on and on and on and on), tiredness (Life carries on and on and on), grieving, of course (O my people), biology or lack thereof (This flesh and bone/It's just the way you would tied in), and creation (Did I dream this belief?/Or did I believe this dream?)

Or I think so, anyway. :)
