DEAD CAN DANCE


In The Wake Of Adversity Lyrics

Dave: [I don't think it's Sacred Priests, doesn't sound
right]
Bud: [ It does fit the song's meaning, if not the
precise sound
though. Pious priests, with their "narrow ways,"
wouldn't
care at all to argue with you or I because they
know they
are right. And of course, the angels they
pretend to
know so much about, in reality, favour "us".
But, these
priests cannot see the inner man.

But the song begins with the sound, "ey" or
"hey". Comical.
What do you think?

Sacred priests don't cry....(?)

Donny: the lyrics should now be correct. What everybody
thought was "sacred priests" is actually "Hey Patrice",
while the second line doesn't have "argue", which
instead should be "harm you". The last line of the 1st
verse doesn't tell about "the" sadness but "your"
sadness, referring to Patrice.

In the second verse, they do not "sing" upon a course,
which instead should be "sail". Finally, the last line
is not about something that "land brings to our eyes".
Instead, the "love" of which he sings "lends grace to
our hearts". It's a song about oppression (Patrice
being subject to that) and how nobody looks deep enough
to see what lies beneath the surface, but instead miss
out on a lot of love and beauty, purely because of
their ignorance of what lies within.

Hey Patrice don't cry
they've no reason to harm you
at all
they don't realise
that the angels surround you with
light
they don't understand
their narrow ways defeat them where
they stand
they don't realise
you hide your sadness beneath a
painted smile.

Ignorance,
that line of fools steers a wayward
path
and set the course upon which we sail into the
night of uncertainty.
Following the stars
that make their way across the
sky
valuing the love
that lends grace to our hearts
We sail...
