They took the air and they swarmed as one
The end of this first song on Spoils recalls the end of the first song on the Farewell Sorrow album, particularly the lines:
Life is but Death's own right-hand man<br> In every piece of his own left-hand business.<br> So arm in arm, we'll run toward that pair<br> And we as they, joined and double-threaded
Similarly Grief and Joy are "as one", and the parallel with Life and Death brings us full circle to the tacit allusion in this song's title to Hamish Henderson's Flyting o' Life and Daith.
