about

Remix of For Persephone (2011)
Persephone was the unwilling Bride of Hades, God of the Underworld and Ruler of All the Dead. She became Queen of Elysium, Land of the Happy War Dead, the souls of warriors who died honorably in battle. "For Persephone" is our tribute to the Normandy War Dead.

lyrics

Dresses in wind
Sheets on the line
Kisses on fingers
Grapes on the vine
Footprints in sand
Wine in my hand
I was awakened
By the thrust of your hand

There out on the shore
We were fighting this war
I call to Saint Peter
As he turns to close the door
I'm blinded by the light
At the foot of the sea
Fall before the gods
Who won't rescue me

Lily white skin
Dusted by sand
Tears in your eyes
Clutch the stone in my hand
I was awake
But I couldn't see
Tossed to the waves
Where there's no one but me

And there out on the shore
Where we were fighting this war
I call to Saint Peter
As he turns to lock the door
I'm blinded by the light
And at the foot of the sea
Fall before the gods
Who won't rescue me

There out on the shore
I will wait for you once more
In your foam drenched lace
Shrouded 'bout your face
Stranded on the shore
Drowning by the sea
Calling for Saint Peter
As he smiles back at me
