about

Composed by Jeff Dorchen to his translation of "Bohemians en Voyage" by Charles Baudelaire.

lyrics

The tribe of fortunetellers hit the road yesterday
With passion in their eyes to light their way
Ravenous children on their backs
Feeding from the ever-lactating breasts that sway

The men have knives than shine
As they walk beside the wagons
And they sweep the distant skies
And they weep for long-dead dragons

The cricket when he sees the travelers pass
Amplifies his song, and then the grass
Grows more green and lush
And the desert starts to flower
In honor of their power

The men have knives than shine
As they walk beside the wagons
And they sweep the distant skies
And they weep for long-dead dragons

With the love the goddess has for them
She clears the future's paths for them
So they can read the shadows
In the landscape of tomorrow
They can read the shadows
In the landscape of tomorrow

The men have knives than shine
As they walk beside the wagons
And they sweep the distant skies
And they weep for long-dead dragons

And they can read the shadows
In the landscape of tomorrow
And they can read the shadows
In the landscape of tomorrow
