Album: "Easter"

patti smith easter

Il libretto dice che "Till Victory" parla della "distruzione della mitragliatrice da parte della chitarra elettrica", e spero che sia una profezia.

The booklet says "Till Victory" is about "the destruction of the machine gun by the electric guitar," and I hope that's a prophecy.

patti smith
Raise the sky.
We got to fly over the land, over the sea.
Fate unwinds and if we die, souls arise.
God, do not seize me please, till victory.

Take arms. Take aim. Be without shame
No one to bow to, to vow to, to blame.
Legions of light, virtuous flight. Ignite, excite.

And you will see us coming, V formation, through the sky.
Film survives. Eyes cry.

On the hill, hear us call through a realm of sound.
Oh, oh-oh. Down and down.
Down and round, oh, down and round.
Round and round, oh, round and round.

Rend the veil and we shall sail.
The nail, the grail: That's all behind thee.
In deed, in creed, the curve of our speed.
And we believe that we will raise the sky.
We got to fly over the land, over the sea.
Fate unwinds and if we die, souls arise.
God, do not seize me please, till victory.

Victory. Till victory.
Victory. Till victory.
Victory. Till victory.
Victory. Till victory.
