I only recently figured out what this song is about. Mumford And Sons actually have a ton of Biblically themed songs, and this appears to one of them. Between the theme of being covered in weeds (from that parable that Jesus told that compared the hearts of people to planting crops) and the line "Look over your hills and be still, the sky above us shoots to kill," it seems clear that this is a song about not settling for life's luxurious. Be content for what you have, because it could be gone in

This song is like a desperate prayer: bitter and accusing at the beginning and then light and accepting by the end.

I don't like this at all, too much folk and this is on a Indie Rock station. I'm tired of hearing their pathetic songs.

The sky above us shoots to kill... great line. A lot of modern bands could stand to learn a thing or two about lyric writing from these guys.
