The Gravedigger's Song
Mark Lanegan Lyrics


With piranha teeth
I been dreaming of you
And the taste of your love so sweet
Honest its true

Through my heart flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
Where the gravedigger’s sung his song
You’ve been torturing me

Tout est noir, mon amour
Tout est blanc
Je t’aime, mon amour
Comme j’aime la nuit

Love, is the medicine good?
Is the crow flying eight miles high?
Over wire and wood

Shovel down six feet
With a head heavy pain
But magnolia blooms so sweet
And it fades just the same

To the stars my love
To the sea
To the wheels my love
Till they roll all over me

Oh love, I been thinking of you
With razor white teeth so sharp
Honest its true

In my blood flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
But magnolia blooms so sweet
Only torturing me

To the stars my love
To the sea
To the wheels my love
Till they roll all over me

With piranha teeth
I've been dreaming of you
And the taste of your love, so sweet
Honest, it's true

Through my heart flows sleep
And the dark, heavy rain
Where the gravedigger's song is sung
You've been torturing me

Tout est noir, mon amour
Tout est blanc
Je t'aime, mon amour
Comme j'aime la nuit

Love, is the medicine good?
Is the crow flying eight miles high
Over wire and wood?

Shovel down six feet
With a head heavy pain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
And it fades just the same

To the stars, my love
To the sea
To the wheels, my love
'Til they roll all over me

Oh love, I've been thinking of you
With razor white teeth, so sharp
Honest, it's true

In my blood flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
Only torturing me

To the stars, my love
To the sea
To the wheels, my love
'Til they roll all over me

RIP Brother. Hope you rest easy Mark. This is a crippling loss, my condolences to his family, friends and his bandmates. Haven't felt this bad since Chris Cornell's passing

Jason Smith

Totally crushed by his passing... RIP brother. Catch you on the flipside.

Tristan Lawson

When I heard the news I went to this song to give him a proper send-off. I'm glad others had the same idea.

draak anaon

This song is such a masterpiece. I need more vinyl versions. I can hear it again and again. R. I. P Mister Lanegan. Your voice will haunt me until my own death.

john mccluskey

lowri spooner

Antonio Oliveira

RIP dude, you’re the voice of a lifetime.

Tina Kelaiditi

I hate to repeat myself, but here goes... What I love about this guy, apart from the voice, the soul, the chills down the spine, is that he makes each album as if it was his last... of the few artists whose quality improves as time goes by.
