Casey Dienel- synths programming and vocals

lyrics

Nancy braids my hair
Stirs the milk into my tea
I was a skeptic in my last life
Now i’m living out the sequence of a dream I forgot

Thru the good and the bad times
Thru the good and the bad guys
Dirt on her feet and in her hands
The love that grows and mends
Changes shape, never binds

CHORUS
Take my hand
Take me to a place I’ve never been
She’s a zephyr dancing on the edge of the world
Where they’re growing
Figs persimmon and peach

CHORUS
Like a zephyr dancing
at the end of the world
burning up in the haze of the bleeding sun

We ride through the Marigny
newly gentrified
while the second line marches by
are we living or slowly dying?

This land is not my land
Sunburned I hold the traitor hand
One by birth and two by circumstance
I’ve never loved anyone more or felt so alone

Thru the boom and the bust times
Thru the barons and bread lines
Like the cities of the dead
We sprawl and sink into the swamp
But til then here we are

CHORUS
Like a zephyr dancing
on the edge of the world
burning up in the haze of the bleeding sun
like a zephyr dancing
at the end of the world

We ride through the Marigny newly gentrified
While the second line marches by
Are we living or slowly dying?


The cities change their face 
Til no one’s left to say
If things were ever better off before

CHORUS
Take my hand
Take me to a place i’ve never been
She’s a zephyr dancing on the edge of the world
Where they’re growing
Figs persimmon and peach

Like a zephyr dancing at the end of the world
Burning up in the haze of the bleeding sun

Take my hand, come on and take my hand
take me to a place i’ve never been, I’ve never been
She’s a zephyr dancing on the edge of the world
Where they’re growing
figs persimmon and
figs persimmon and
figs persimmon and peach
