Same Pale Sun

from Dosawos Songs by Merz

This new Merz song is included as an extra track on the vinyl release of Dreams of Sleep and Wakes of Sound by Laraaji : Merz : Shahzad Ismaily


It's hard to get a read on you
Just trying to catch your manifestation
Even in the morning's delight
There's no way of sensing insight

You do the work of this world no complaint
I'll never reach your vibration
Veiled in your immemorial being
Not all is as it seems

In tune with your melodic guitar
And your sand dune spirit and heart
Fallen on my naked knees
In the shade of a beckoning tree

I turn and face the pale sun
Turn and face the pale sun
Through the mists of the dawn
I turn and face the pale sun

We've minds to know and ears to hear
There's a line that's been drawn in the sand
Every woman and man

Turn and face the same sun
Turn and face the same sun
Through the fog everyone
Turn and face the same sun
