And Also The Trees - The Dust Sailor Lyrics


I am the dust sailor
Drifting deep on the southern breeze.
I smell the cold
Welsh sinking sea
Float down through the mirage heat
of the south with me.,
I comb my way down beaches
To the jetsom dry towns.

In the grease dens
Through the reefer haze you call
With the smoke that pirouettes
Down the harbour streets

I am the dust sailor,
Drifting down through the south to you.
I wander through
The shuttered rooms
Down every ravine street
of the south for you.
I sail the singing silence
Of the desert simoons.

I cannot hold you
In my mermaid painted arms
You are the smell of oranges
And distant bells

I am the dust sailor,
Lying deep in the mirage view,
I sleep with you,
I wake with you
Down neath the golden skull
of the southern moon.
I see a day that stretches
like a secret... unknown.

From the bulls blood
On the hot afternoon sand,
To the cockerels crowing us
From high blue dreams
