from the albumMusic From Another Land by Xenovibes
Martyr of My Dreams

Psychedelic rock!

 

The story is about the dreams that people hold very firmly to and try to attain but are sometimes out of their reach. In this song I added a chorus sung by me in Hokkien, a Chinese dialect from the province Fukian, interposed with the tin-whistle which I regard as from my Australian heritage. The theremin features at the start and end.

Lyrics

I see it in your eyes, my paradise

Show me the stone you carry

Tightly round your neck, you idolise it

The foundation is heavy

At a tender time you fantasize, four mirrors are what you're facing

At your journey's end to paradise, will you still recognise me?
