lyrics

Snakes move in your eyes
like they moved on your arms that day
you turn to me slowly
If only I could remember you say
If only I could remember you say

Faces turn on the foam
you stand on the bank at the river’s bend
blue paint on your palms
And that man on the cliff, he doesn’t understand
and that man on the cliff, he doesn’t understand
And that man on the cliff, he doesn’t understand
What will you release this time, woman?
what will you embrace this time, woman?
what will you create this time, woman?

Chants burn with incense
you are standing so close to me
you wear the locket
And somewhere in this great land is the key
somewhere in this great land is the key
And somewhere in this great land is the key

What will you ignite this time, woman
For what will you fight this time, woman
In what will you delight this time, woman?

Snakes move in your eye
like they moved on your arms that day
you turn to me slowly
If only I could remember you say
if only I could remember you say
