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.

Thought I’d follow you to the dying lands 
From the chapel to death’s door 
Should have closed my mind when you hypnotized 
Should have turned from you when you called 

Ten steps under cold stone arches 
A stifled scream 
And now you’re dead and gone 

Saw your sad blue eyes in the pale moonlight 
Long locks and red‐stained lips 
Should have sheltered you when they put you out 
Should have come for you when you called 

Blood mural in the Swallow Gardens 
A flash of light 
And now you’re dead and gone 

Dead and gone 
Dead and gone 
Dead and gone 

The beast at the heart of it 
You never had a stake in this 
Piece of meat caught a vice grip 
A wolf had to come for it 

Dead and gone 
Dead and gone 
Dead and gone 

Now that I need you child 
Now that I want you child 

Dead and gone 
Dead and gone 
Dead and gone
