Shaman's Harvest - Red Hands Black Deeds (Prelude) Lyrics




Sun won't shine down here in this valley
The moon don't glow beneath these trees
Some lonesome baby, won't you come save me
From these red hands and black deeds
From these red hands and black deeds

Sun don't shine down here in this valley
The moon don't glow beneath these trees
Some lonesome baby, won't you come save me
From these red hands and black deeds
From these red hands and black deeds

    I feel like even among the fans of Shaman's Harvest, this album is highly underappreciated. Sure when you compare it track-to-track with Smokin' Hearts and Broken Guns it's vastly inferior (there's no Ten Million Voices or Silent Voice on this album). However, Red Hands Black Deeds is one hell of a concept album (I assume intentionally). This whole album seems to tell the story of a man who is brought up in a bad environment, which leads him to become a bad person and eventually do some horrible things (some "black deeds" if you will):
    The prelude sets the tone, mood and scene for the album.
    "Broken Ones" describes the nature of the person in question (a broken man who would one day do horrible things).
    "The Come Up" shows him briefly fighting his nature before properly falling and becoming what he didn't want to become; even asking for help ("I could use a hand getting off of the floor. Don't you hear me callin'?").
    The songs "A Longer View" through to "Long Way Home" describe various aspects of his life and character traits he exhibits after becoming the person he is.
    "The Devil in Our Wake" starts when he finally commits a truly "black deed", with him needing to skip town and live on the run (although this song also ties in well with "Tusk and Bone" later on as a description of man's progression through time and eventual destruction of everything in our path).
    This leads into "Blood Trophies"'s more direct story-line, starting with him at a lake hiding what is assumed to be a murder weapon, and blatantly mentioning federal law enforcement are on his trail. The line "now my work is almost done. They'll take my breath but not my deeds." shows that by this point he has truly become an evil man and feels little remorse for his actions (i.e. he's made it his purpose to do these deeds, even at the cost of his own life). The title "Blood Trophies" would support this, as many serial killers and other such people tend to take trophies from their victims.
    "Tusk and Bone" is a breakaway from the main story, as this song is more of a link between the concepts in the main story and the "black deeds" that human beings do and have done to the ecosystem since our inception. It's as accusatory of a song as it is touchingly beautiful.
    Finally, "Scavengers" describes his final moments. His final thoughts are laid out in the lyrics as he finally calls it as his time to die. He decides he wants to die as he lived: with red hands doing black deeds. At this point he seems to have lost all hope in achieving happiness in life. Instead, he simply asks that he is not woken from death, but instead left to sleep "between the notes", as he goes down in what is presumably a gunfight.

    Yuno Gasai This is a good goddamn summary.

    +100 Respect

    Kalen Williams

    You're crazy, Ten Million Voices and Silent Voice aren't even the best Shaman's songs. Go check out The Offering and Cardinal Syn. I really really encourage you to check out their earlier work, it's up on their artist page now.

    LIKE SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE!

    Sun won't shine down here in this valley

    From these red hands and black deeds
    From these red hands and black deeds

    Sun don't shine down here in this valley
    The moon don't glow beneath these trees
    Some lonesome baby, won't you come save me

    This song reminds me of us working down in man made hell....where its very dark and very very hot.....we work and work for our families up on surface....in darkness we work hard and bust our asses as we all laugh with each other and fight....but yet we all are brothers underground

  15. Benjamin Williams

  26. Okay I Believe You

    Hi, I'm new and I'm getting confused with this band's genre. Are they rock or country?

    Silverstreak3984

    they are them. why do they have to be confined or defined by one genre?

    Okay I Believe You

    +Silverstreak3984 I just like knowing what genre each band I listen to is, sorry I hit a soft spot.

    Silverstreak3984

    Jughead Jones the III not a soft spot just a weird question to me.

    Okay I Believe You

    +Silverstreak3984 If you haven't noticed, I'm weird. I'm a weirdo. I don't fit in and I don't want to fit in.

    Anthony Marks

    It's a pretty 50/50 mix, They have some heavy stuff and then they have a song literally called "Country as fuck", Then there's this. They can't be defined

  27. They call Me RAIN

    new fan

  28. Carol Chavers

    waiting for the album to be released. I love this band so much.

  29. Cindy C. Campbell

    Happy boi1233

    *goose-pimples*

    Nonrev Nosnibor

    Hill Billy's were not Celtic, they were Protestant

  30. Nigel Freeman

    Carolyn Sullivan
