Album: Fatherland (2017)
  • In a dream, I hear her laughter
    Like waves upon the shore
    It pulls me further out than I should go
    Underneath the asphalt stirring
    Bloodstream of the earth
    Break your holy waters over us

    Oh Yemaya, I'm clear
    Oh Yemaya, I'm listening
    Oh Yemaya, I'm clear
    Oh Yemaya, I'm listening

    It starts first at the centre flowing
    It knows just where to go
    Like the newborn swimming in a stream
    Through the rusted pipelines sprawling
    Sunken concrete ruin
    Where the delta meets the ocean floor

    Oh Yemaya, I'm clear
    Oh Yemaya, I'm listening to you
    Oh Yemaya, I'm clear
    Oh Yemaya, I'm listening to you, ooh
