Swallows

The swallows, martins, and saw-wings, or Hirundinidae, are a family of passerine songbirds found around the world on all continents, including occasionally in Antarctica. Highly adapted to aerial feeding, they have a distinctive appearance. The term "swallow" is used colloquially in Europe as a synonym for the barn swallow. Around 90 species of Hirundinidae are known, divided into 19 genera, with the greatest diversity found in Africa, which is also thought to be where they evolved as hole-nesters.

Ten miles 
Beyond the last homestead 
Ten miles down 
Where the bulrush grows 
And the blackbirds nest 

Strange lights pulsing 
Dark things prowling 
As the pale lamps flicker 

Ten miles down 
You’ll find the river bends 
Ten miles down 
Swift waters flow 
Past a great oak stand 

Old limbs withered 
Dead eyes watching 
As the gnarled hands twist and turn 

Something’s calling me 
Away from this life 
The dead have followed me 
Miles and miles from home 

I’ll wait all night 
‘Til the spirits pass 
Stand watch ‘til the light 
Beats the shadows back 

Rise high sun fire 
Bright light
Push these voices out of my head 

Something’s calling me 
Away from this life 
The dead have followed me 
Miles and miles from home 

Something’s calling me 
Away from this life 
The host that’s watching me 
Wants to swallow me up whole

Something’s calling me 
Away from this life 
The dead have followed me 
Miles and miles from home 

Something’s calling me 
Away from this life 
The host that’s watching me 
Wants to swallow me up whole

Swallow me up
Swallow me up whole
