black stream lyrics – dead can dance

murder!
man of fire!
murder!
i’ve seen the eyes of living death.
it’s descending, survival,
the great m*ss [lay-a-] awaiting [gain],

dave:[“great m*ss lay-waiting game”]
bud:[why is the great m*ss awaiting “game”?]

embalmed, prayerful,
dying in fear of pain!

all sense of freedom gone!

black sun…
in a white world…
like having a black son
in a white world.

i have a son!
his name is [ethan]
it’s his birthright…
beyond the strange light.

dave:[* is ethan a biblical name?]

bud:[i too thought it sounded a bit like “ee-thin,” but
i am not sure of the significanse or the meaning…
“ethan” is not a biblical name as far as i am aware.]

give me 69 years
and a season in this h*ll
bud:[possibly “another season in this h*ll”]

there’s all s*x and death
as far as eyes can tell.

like prometheus we are bound
chained to this rock
of a brave new world
our [god forsaken lost].

and i have a fear,
it’s all we ever needed to know.
so, worlds end and the seas run cold!

give me 69 years
and the season in this h*ll
there’s all s*x and death
in mother nature’s plans.

like prometheus, we are bound
chained to this rock
of a brave new world
our god, forsaken, lost.
