Gone Lyrics

Dark the stars and dark the moon
Hush the night and the morning loon
Tell the horses and beat on your drum
Gone their master, gone their son

Dark the oceans, dark the sky
Hush the whales and the ocean tide
Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
Gone their master, gone their son

Dark to light and light to dark
Three black carriages, three white carts
What brings us together is what pulls us apart
Gone our brother, gone our heart

Hush the whales and the ocean tide
Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
Gone their master, gone their son

Thoughts & Meanings

Anyone who has ever experienced the loss of someone close to you knows the meaning of this song---when it feels like your heart is ripped from you , but you know it is still beating. Everything seems dark even though you are in the light. If you have heard the call of a loon or a whale you know it is a mournful call. Drumbeats are the rhythym of the funeral march. "Gone our brother, gone our son".

Perhaps three black funeral carriages at the death of three people, thus the three white carts are possibly the coffins/carts carrying the bodies of these individuals. These carriages were often pulled by horses, as mentioned in the beginning of this song, and in the back you could fit a cart. See image: www.medievalfantasiesco.com/...C.jpg

A mixing of paradoxical forces, where light and dark clash, good and evil, night and dark, war and peace, death and life, many of these oppositional themes which reoccur in this piece

If there is no moon, as suggested above, then perhaps there is no force that is causing the gravitational pull of the tide, thus the ocean is silent and unmoving

The focus on brothers and sons suggests a type of battle in which men are fighting. The use of carriages, horses, and the battle drum insinuates an earlier time of war, when it was the duty of males to serve, and, in some ways, war was crueler and more unforgiving.

Perhaps horses in battle, as well as the battle drum, which is often tapped upon to send signals to troops

Suggesting a sense of darkness and loss. Usually if the stars are disappearing, this is with the arrival of day. But if it is 'dark', then it suggests a ghostly limbo between night and day where it is a moonless, starless night.

Signifying a quite night where even the loon, a type of duck that often makes noises in the morning, has a silenced cry
