dall’album Gargoyle, 2017

Clean
New roads unfurled
Light of the world

Redeemed
Your humble child
Don’t leave me here
Let me come with you

And though my soul
Is not worth saving
My mistress and my queen
Your spirit is
Larger than my sin

It does not lie
It does not lie
In this faith that we live and die
I give myself to you

Sustained
No need to explain
Fade into the sun
The evening kisses your rays

Sweet mother
Queen of the world
I’m free
Free at last

Dear Mother
Queen of the earth and air
Let cool water flow
Sweet mother
Queen of the world
Let cool water flow
Claim this land
Noth south east west
To the wind you dance
Sweet mother
I give myself to you
And have no other
Have no other than you

Clean
Through the eternal
Through dead seasons
Sail to the sun
My mother and my queen
Honest and serene
Praise God
God in everything
God in everyone

Way up
Way up high
Way up high mama
All my darkness cleaned away
Sweet mother
Sweet sweet mother
Sweet mother
Queen of the world
Take me in your arms
Let me live again Ooooh!
Clean
