One month ago I released with my band Arrow Haze (from Belgium) single "Elly Kedward" with the animation video. The Elly Kedward story is really interesting and we wanted to make a song about this. I thought that this is probably a good place to share this...
Here is the video:
I hope you like it.

Please explain the meaning of the lyrics as they pertain to Elly Kedward.
It's about the person Elly Kedward, how she was perceived to be garbage, a witch. And how she was only respected and feared when she was killed. The people in her town only realized that Elly Kedward was not a witch, after they killed her. It's about how Elly Kedward must have felt towards the people during the witch trials. And how I could relate to that feeling. Not just me, I think everyone sometimes has the feeling they're the victim of a witch hunt. It's about feeling anger, not understanding people around you ("comes down to you and me, ignorance versus me"). But people back then and now haven't changed at all: they only realize their mistakes in their behaviour and actions when it's too late ("too late to believe"). The song is also bout realizing you are different than others. Just like Elly Kedward.
