Both species, they lay naked in the tombs of oasis
By ‘both species’, Priest is referring to “Love and hatred”. They ‘lay naked’ in the depths of his mind. They are ‘in the tomb’ as they are old memories.
Priest uses this verse to meditate and ‘think back’ on moments with people who gave him love or hatred.
