Bon Iver & St. Vincent – Rosyln lyrics

Up with your turret
Aren't we just terrified?
Shale, screen your worry from what you won't ever find

Don't let it fool you
Don't let it fool you... Down
Down's sitting round, folds in the gown

Sea and the rock below
Cocked to the undertow
Bones blood and teeth erode, with every crashing node

Wings wouldn't help you
Wings wouldn't help you... Down
Down fills the ground, gravity's proud

You barely are blinking
Wagging your face around
When'd this just become a mortal home, now?

Won't, won't, won't, won't

Won't let you talk me
Won't let you talk me, down
Will pull it taut, nothing let out

    This song is about suicide but I believe it is an emotional suicide he is singing about not physical. He is singing to her trying to talk her out of it but she sees him coming and puts up her guard (a turret is a guard tower of a castle). He is telling her don't let it fool you, your death is at the bottom of that cliff. "down fills the ground" if you jump you will be in the ground as in your grave. "gravity is proud" you aren't special and you cannot beat it. But in the end she cannot be talked down and finds her suicide in another way "will pull it taut, nothing let out" talks about a rope you hang yourself with. Haunting lyrics and a haunting song.
