lyrics

when west meets east or east meets west
and all that we have loved the best is scorched to ash
there is no pale dove where roaches reign
or any sign of olive branch
and no rainbow in the sky

cars rusted, bridges twisted
can the rain fall from the sky?
when all the rivers have gone dry
can I give a bloody toss for this lost race?
and all is lost, the karmic wheel is flat and busted

shrivelled 'n' frail, keeps a weather eye
no wisdom left
clings to bones tenaciously
she clings to life, anxious voices
ungraciously she's falling now

cold in her bones, all feeling gone
she's falling now, shrivelled 'n' frail
fading, fading in the night
falling through the failing light

when west meets east and east meets west
and all that we have loved the best has gone
and all the gods and demons all
will turn to dust and fall like dry snow

every word the prophets shouted,
every book the gods have puked
will burn quite nicely on the pyre
for everything that we held dear
when we end up floating dust

Morningblind: a collaboration between Catalan singer-songwriter Sandra Bossy Retti and British writer Richard Hayden; the result is an EP drawing on a wide range of influences: folk, jazz, classical, and rock. This is adult life in song; there’s not much escapism; it’s more about trying to look at things head-on and from that create something beautiful, affecting, genuine and eminently listenable. ... more
