Fountains in the Desert

by Unwoman

subscriber exclusive


[Audio revised & replaced 10-31-22]


Did I ask for diamonds?
I’m just looking for a new best friend!
For the dream of comfort
A hopeless hope for quiet

Come, take my hand
Fly from this land
Where song is free
Join in the dance

Complete independence
Is somehow a goal to aspire to
High social regard, without the burden of Friendship for more than a few

[Opulence, decadence
Abundance, performance
Destiny, held hostage
We need you, don’t resist]

This house could be filled with dancing girls and raucous laughter
But instead we must do our best to make it His Castle
As soon as we find a way to extract money for daily
Activities we will destroy all those that once were free

Earn it by competently performing the role you were assigned
Don’t you dare ever ask, “why should I let someone who loves me less than I do choose my future?”

Are you with me
Aiming for free
First as in love
Next as in speech

While he builds fountains in the desert
Monuments and testaments
His name on your lips
Is the real payment

White cats in snow
Slyly they go
Will they return?
He’ll never know
