SONGS VON A BIS Z


 

 

THE LAVENDER CANTOS

Part One VERMILLION SANDS or THE SNOWBIRD AND THE SHRINE

You whisper this is the day of creation
And not a case of inspiration
But it's only the surface you know
Words organized in cascades
A fever dream turns to reality
And the thrill becomes a habit soon
Oh toxic snowbird
Oh my snowbird
And the wind blows across the shore
So let us sing once more

A skeleton in the closet
Rattles a little too loudly
A pack of cobras but who is the mongoose
It takes no skill to kill
And you're too cool to fool
A curl from you into my shrine
Bad goods and placid plagues are mine
Bad goods and placid plagues are mine
And the wind blows across the shore
So let us sing once more
Marble mangold magnolia
Emeralds on vermillion sands

Part Two HIMINAM ANA AIRTHAI or HEAVEN ON EARTH

Himinam an arthai
Heaven on earth
Mahts jah wilja
The power and the will
Daga jah hlaif
The day and the bread
Sijaima ni ubilin
We are no evil
Sijaima weihnai in alwins
We are holy into eternity
Quimai
Come on
Quimai
Come on

Part Three SEVEN FLAGS ON THE PEAK

The percolators run dry
Sounds of a snowbird's cry
Whatever you think of noise
We'll never change our toys

Chorus:
Maybe you know
Hoist them
Be sure they know
Find them
Mindmade aircraft soul vibrations
You'll never learn to rule them

No gadget to learn to know
Positions high or low
Lead the roman legions
Into the bleeding heart of pharaoh

Chorus

I see it on my screen
It makes me move my feet
Seven flags on the peak

The batteries get wet
Take me back to Alex the Great
Venus never finds my Mars
Another hit to my head

Chorus

I see it on my screen
It makes my life complete
Seven flags on the peak

They do it in their way
They change from day to day
We love you in our way
Yeah we love you in our way

Part Four THE RETURN OF THE SNOWBIRD

And the wind blows across the shore
So let us sing once more
Marble mangold magnolia
Emeralds on vermillion sands
