    I just discovered this song on season 3 of Being Human. Amazing song. Great voice. Great writing. Has multiple layers of meaning. The writer grew up in a freezing cold state and her father was a hunter who exposed her to the gruesome act of hunting her whole life. She was alone and isolated much of her childhood so this really shaped her artistically. So the lyrics express the gruesome aspect of seeing dead animals all the time. Heads and corpses of animals. She experienced the brutality of killing animals and now she uses it in her writing as a metaphor of how cold unfeeling and brutal city life is since everyone is alone and unable to experience the folks often millions of people around them.
