about

Murder In Brazil is part of a collection of Dark Roots recordings that is based on a true turn of the century crime story that has intrigued black-eyed SUZIE's family over several generations. It gives a voice to a mysterious woman whose full story went with her to the grave.

lyrics

Black holes, needle to soul
Ties the man to her heart
Little hands take up the threads
Sew up the eyes to their frayed little heads
Ink from the bottle
A drop for the dead
What comes of tomorrow
Weep out the dread

The moon for her lamplight
Roots for her bed
A stone for her pillow
Anguished she treads
So I sit by the graveside
And mourn her lament
It's the last thing she told me
The last thing she said

The last thing she told me
The last thing she said
The last thing she told me
The last thing she said
The last thing she told me
The last thing she said
The words stuck in my head
Stuck in my head
