Did you see Mumford and Sons kill the Grammys? Cannot get enough of them. They balance my hormones, among other things. I’m more than a bit obsessed with Marcus Mumford (below).

Here’s the video. Lyrics? Brilliant and below. It’s empty here in the valley of your heart… Come on out of the cave walking on your hands, y’all! Coming to Oakland April 21.

 

The Cave
It’s empty in the valley of your heart

The sun, it rises slowly as you walk

Away from all the fears

And all the faults you’ve left behind
The harvest left no food for you to eat

You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see

But I have seen the same

I know the shame in your defeat
But I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck
And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again
Cause I have other things to fill my time

You take what is yours and I’ll take mine

Now let me at the truth

Which will refresh my broken mind
So tie me to a post and block my ears

I can see widows and orphans through my tears

I know my call despite my faults

And despite my growing fears
But I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck
And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again
So come out of your cave walking on your hands

And see the world hanging upside down

You can understand dependence

When you know the maker’s land
So make your siren’s call

And sing all you want

I will not hear what you have to say
Cause I need freedom now

And I need to know how

To live my life as it’s meant to be
And I will hold on hope

And I won’t let you choke

On the noose around your neck
And I’ll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I’ll know my name as it’s called again
