Artist: Dead Can Dance
The river is deep and the road is long
Daylight comes and I want to go home
Awoke this morning to find my people's tongues were tied
And in my dreams they were given books to poison their minds
The river is deep and the mountain high
How long before the other side
We are their mortar, their building bricks and their clay
Their gold teeth mirror both our joys and our pain
The river is deep and the ocean wide
Who will show us how to read the signs
The earth is our mother she taught us to embrace the light
Now the Lord is master She suffers an eternal night
You blocked up my ears
You plucked out my eyes
You cut out my tongue
You fed me with lies, oh Lord
