lyrics

Dear India cried, while tear drops tried
To cling like angels upon conifers' tops,
And like them I'm drawn, from dusk until dawn
To another land so distant from here,
Of tusks and flames, those ancient remains
Have slid into me from the womb,
Cords cut and tied, no-one will deny,
I've been left in a discordant mood,

Whether it be great walls rising, or Benjamin's ticks,
Whether it be sacred torrents, or gorillas in the mist,
Pull me, pull me, mother, with a gentle hand,
Pull me, pull me, mother, back to the motherland

To pull or to push, that's where I'm stranded,
Oars stuck in the sand, too much is demanded of me,
But I won't be left here high and dry
And I know that you'll be swept away with me,
To corners of the earth, left aside in our
Demented collective memory

Whether it be great walls rising, or Benjamin's ticks,
Whether it be sacred torrents, or gorillas in the mist,
Pull me, pull me, mother, with a gentle hand,
Pull me, pull me, mother, back to the motherland

And we'll form arrows
To shoot along magnetic lines
And we'll form arrows
To shoot along magnetic lines
And we'll form arrows
To shoot along magnetic lines
And we'll form arrows
To shoot along magnetic lines

Whether it be great walls rising, or Benjamin's ticks,
Whether it be sacred torrents, or gorillas in the mist,
Pull me, pull me, mother, with a gentle hand,
Pull me, pull me, mother, back to the motherland

And we'll form arrows
Back to the motherland
And we'll form arrows
Back to the motherland
And we'll form arrows
Back to the motherland
And we'll form arrows
