about

Here is the desert. Feel the scorch. See the star-gazer.
He is terrified, darting from one hiding place to the next, flesh burned by the relentless sun, mind crazed by its remorseless heat. As birds circle above him a voice in his head sings of a hound dog on his trail. But there is no dog, no-one is following him - there is only the open endless desert sky and the birds circling above. You can outrun a hound dog but the birds are here and the birds are now and the birds are the Butcher.

lyrics

There is no hound dog on your trail
coming for to make you pay
looks like you got away with it again
So you come from where the road is most narrow
yeah you come from the blackest night
you hide those old bones in the shadow
keep your carcass out of sight

but you're here where the road is it's widest
you can see your horizon is clear
there is nobody coming up there behind you
you are free
there is no hound dog on your trail
and in the trees the birds
sing songs of victory
and in the skies the birds
fly high just happy to be free

but who do you think
all those birds are singing to?
who do you think every canary is singing to?
there is no hound dog on your trail

because I want for nothing
there is nothing that I want
you can turn your heel
a thousand steps away from me
my birds eye view will spy on you
and sing your secrets back to me
