about

A fictional ghost story about a woman who killed her husband and committed suicide atop a seaside cliff hill, aptly called the "Widow's Peak".

Trivia:
~ Not being Viking/ Heathen in nature this song was included as a special request from one of the producers.
~ The piano mistakes and off-phrasing was left in deliberately to denote the unstable nature of the Widow's state of mind.
~High falsetto vocal intro is an "ode" to Rob Halford of Judas Priest.

lyrics

WIDOW'S PEAK

Blood in the sky creep to the East
High on the noon the vengeance released
Velvet caress, she came to the hill
Coming to kill

Pistol in hand, aimed for his eye
Stood on his chest, watching him die
Swallowed the gun and cursed where she fell
Hell, where she'd dwell

(Chorus)
Walk with me, wander the Widows Peak
Life past the sky
You'll die high up on the Widows Peak
Beyond the tide


Razorback smile, screams in the night
Come with me, you'll know the meaning of fright
Out of the fog she'll summon your heart
Tear you apart

(Chorus) x2
