Sing This Corrosion


Listening to The Sisters of Mercy this morning, “This Corrosion.” Opening lyric – “Kill the king, when love is the law, And the wheel turn round.” Most of the lyric sites quote the last bit as “and the we’ll turn round” which just makes no sense. The Wheel, though, all the sense in the world. Especially right now when I’m buried in the symbolism of the Wheel of Fortune. Making it go round. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Wait for the light, rise up. I’m 83 pages from the end. Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me.
