Dead Can Dance - Song Of The Dispossessed Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • The river is deep and the road is long,
  • Daylight comes and I want to go home.
  • Awoke this morning
  • To find my peoples tongues were tied
  • And in my dreams
  • They were given books to poison their minds.
  • The river is deep and the mountain high,
  • How long before the other side.
  • We are their mortar,
  • Their building bricks and their clay.
  • Their gold teeth mirror
  • Both our joys and our pain.
  • The river is deep and the ocean wide,
  • Who will teach us how to read the signs.
  • The earth is our mother
  • She taught us to embrace the light,
  • Now the lord is master
  • She suffers an eternal night.
  • You blocked up my ears,
  • You plucked out my eyes,
  • You cut out my tongue,
  • You fed me with lies,
  • Oh lord.
  • {brendan perry}
