Lyrics for The Regulator by Clutch:

I see that lantern trimmed low burning in our home
And though I feel like crying, I swear tonight, I’ll cry no more

And how many times have I prayed
That I would get lost along the way?

Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head
The regulator swinging pendulum
Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head
The regulator swinging pendulum
Come with me and walk the longest mile
Come with me and walk the longest mile

Is his wallet leather? Is his wallet fat?
For not a year later it’s got you lying on your back
You should have closed your windows and got another dog
You should have chained up all the doors and switched up all the locks

And how many times have I prayed
The angels would speed me away?

Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head
The regulator swinging pendulum
Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head
The regulator swinging pendulum

Come with me and walk the longest mile
Come with me and walk the longest mile
Come with me and walk the longest mile
Come with me and walk the longest mile

Song Facts

This song tells the story of a spurned lover who murders his ex-lover because she has left him for another (richer) man. At the beginning of the song, he wishes to be lost along the way so that he will not commit the crime. Midway through- he is wishing that she took extra security measures so that there would be a chance he would not have murdered her. In the end, he is making the ‘long walk’ towards death/redemption, that one can infer is the walk from his cell to his execution.
