Bon Iver – Re: Stacks lyrics

This my excavation, today is Kumran
Everything that happens is from now on
This is pouring rain
This is paralyzed

I keep throwing it down two hundred at a time
It's hard to find it when you knew it
When your money's gone
And you're drunk as hell

On your back with your racks as the stacks your load
In the back the racks and the stacks are your load
In the back with your racks and you're unstacking your load

I've been twisting to the sun, I needed to replace
And the fountain in the front yard is rusted out
All my love was down
In a frozen ground

There's a black crow sitting across from me
And his wiry legs are crossed
And he's dangling my keys, he even fakes a toss
Whatever could it be
That has brought me to this loss?

On your back with your racks as the stacks your load
In the back the racks and the stacks are your load
In the back with your racks and you're unstacking your load

This is not the sound of a new man or a crispy realization
It's the sound of the unlocking and the lift away
Your love will be
Safe with me

    I love tis song. I believe this song talks about when things in life stack up on your shoulders(metaphorically) and make life hard.
    I love the fifth verse the most. When he talk about the crow. I believe the Crow represents death and his keys represent his life. The crow is mocking him with his keys, and he is come close to death and doesn't know how he got there. The last verse says that he is not someone new, but the stacks on his back (the pain and suffering he had brought on himself) are being realeased.
