    This was written by Meg Keene, about her difficult relationship with her mother.. However throughout the song the references are clearly Pagan, possibly Wiccan, i.e. the line "the maiden, the mother, the crone that's grown old" is the standard representation of the triple-aspect goddess.
    As in much great art, double meanings are extant throughout the song, but we can say with absolute certainty that this is a song that makes a lot of pagan references. I am a pagan myself, and have made a video that I think illustrates the lyrics perfectly, you can find it here:-

    This is from a daughter to her mother, she was depicting her as the mother from the 60's, either hippy or affectionately constipated, I think it was the latter. She loves her, she is dead, but frustrated that she loved her and just wanted to be shown some love too. A beautiful story in a song.
