Apple Bed

Written by Mark Linkous

Of horses wet
With melted ice
They would not heed
My advice
And burdened limbs
Of its weight
To break and rot
A whispered fate
Doctor please
A remedy
In a bloody sea
To breach the hive
And smoke the bees
You can be my friend
You can be my dog
You can be my light
You can be my fog
Doctor please
The witches will return
To their sticky tree knots
I will feel the sun
I will feel the sun
I will feel the sun
Coming down
I wish I had
A horse’s head
A tiger’s heart
An apple bed
