69 Eyes – Graveland lyrics

Down by the riverbank in the old bayou
I'm digging a grave into mud just for you
And the hardest rains always come from Tupelo
The hardest rains always come from Tupelo
Blinded by the moonshine from Mexico
I'm singing my blues waiting for the death row
And the hardest rains always come from Tupelo
Another dead baby born in Tupelo

Do you believe in god do you believe in Jesus Christ
Have mercy on me lord I must have been blind
Got a beast inside that I sometimes just can't hide
When the wolfsbane blooms and shadows come alive
Death will be my bride

    He's in a city on a riverbank. He's digging a grave for someone, maybe his ex-girlfriend who ditched him, and these are hard times for him. He's awake and sitting at night under moonlight, which maybe is coming from the direction of mexico. He's singing because he is in pain and he's ready to even accept his death. Even in the city around him it's all sad like a baby is born dead. He asks the listeners if they believe in god, then he asks for mercy from god cause he has been foolish. He says that even though he tries to control himself but sometimes his bad side shows. And then again he becomes weak and tells that he is ready to accept his death merrily.
