Dead Can Dance – Saffron lyrics

Spirit rise to greet the sun
Takes my hand and beats the drum
Tries to make me understand
We're as one in a sea of sand
I'm praying for rain
To see desert flowers again
The eagle flies up towards the sun
High above the fields of babylon
In one claw he holds an olive branch for peace
In the other twelve arrows for his enemies
I'm praying for rain
To see desert flowers again
Spirit rise to help us see
The loving face of humanity
Devoid of fear and free from greed
Devoted to the greater need
I'm praying for rain
To see desert flowers again
The locust is born upon the wing
It's hunger seems as boundless as the great river plain
Where the tigris weaves its way toward the sea
Through a great desert in the heart of man
I'm praying for rain
To see desert flowers again
