about

Easilly the saddest song on the album. It's based on American Indian folklore. If Coyote is struck dead you see, his brother Fox can step over his corpse 4 times and resurect him. Science!

lyrics

Coyote came to earth as a clean-up man
fix the mess and get the world redressed
that was the only plan

But not alone, no, he was given a brother
The fox was made, give coyote the aid
These instructions spoken to the other

Step four times if you find me dead,
Step four times I come back again
step over me
Step four times if you find me dead,
Step four times I come back again
step over me

Then, one day coyote, was struck with an arrow
there was blood on his chest and fox, he knew from the mess
this would surely be a fatal blow

Kneeling, weeping, by his brother, stone dead
Not even a fight, this fallen Desert Knight,
but fox remembered the words he said

Step four times if you find me dead,
Step four times I come back again
step over me
Step four times if you find me dead,
Step four times I come back again
step over me

Never will pay for my fiery theft
come back even if one hair is left
Never will pay for my fiery theft
come back even if one hair is left

Eventually fox grew old and tired
couldn’t keep up with coyote
having never been rewired

He fell to the earth, never to take that step again
glancing behind, coyote turned to find
his brother was forever dead.

He started to step, step, step... ect
over and over just step, step
How many steps to bring you back to me
Oh don’t you leave me now!
oh, no, I don’t want it to end
no, not yet.
