lyrics

‘The dream is over,’ Lennon said
These treasures of darkness in a shaman’s web
And for Jimi and Mister Mojo
We say our prayers for the dead.

Jesus wore a crown of thorns
We had flowers in our hair
Freedom like fig leaves
Hides the truth we could not bear

Fair damsel in distress
Imprisoned in an ivory tower
On an altar to an unknown god
She seeks heaven’s wild flower!

In the shadowlands between heaven and hell
Find a way to the sea through the well
Steps in a large room, the clown dwells alone
In him all hearts are one, all desires are known

Fair damsel in distress
Imprisoned in an ivory tower
On an altar to an unknown god
She seeks heaven’s wild flower!

In a loveletter to Aslan through the wardrobe we hurtle
To seek a deeper magic enter Sara’s circle
On a rainbow ritual, like the eagle we soar
To dare the dark, to fight in the Lamb’s war

Fair damsel in distress
Imprisoned in an ivory tower
On an altar to an unknown god
She seeks heaven’s wild flower!

Angels clash in this heart of mine
They seek the lost love child divine
For to win the love of the fair maiden
The prince descended into hell
So from Babylon, Albion shall awake
And all shall be well
And all shall be well
And all shall be well
And all shall be well!

about

Pete Gioconda Brighton, UK

PETE GIOCONDA is a unique, edgy singer, a protest poet with penchant for historical reference. This mix of punk attitude and psychedelic-folk feel teases the audience to take sides ... like a Johnny Rotten (who hasn’t slept in four days) meets Times they are a-changin’-era Dylan and strolls into Cat Power’s bedroom for consolation. ... more
