I always felt it was hard to show people lyrics when they haven't actually heard the song. It's almost like giving them half a painting and wanting them to see the genius of your masterpiece. Often they don't get the vision.
That being said I think the lyrics here are really intriguing and strong. Strong enough to make me want to hear the song. The imagery is very "reggae/traditional" adn thats how I picture the song sounding in my head. Like folk type guitars and a slow to moderate tempo. I don't know though I'd like to hear it.
