(Some say prayers, I say mine) We serve an old moan in a dry season A lighthouse keeper in The desert sun Dreamers of sleepers And white treason We dream of rain and the History of the gun There's a lighthouse in the Middle of Prussia A white house in a red square I'm living in films for The sake of Russia A Kino Runner for the DDR And the fifty-two daughters Of the revolution Turn the gold to chrome Gift... nothing to lose Stuck inside of Memphis With the mobile home Mother Russia Mother Russia Mother Russia rain down down down Mother Russia Mother Russia Mother Russia rain down (Andrew Eldritch, 1988)

about

“Knots & Crosses” was written and recorded on Easter 2021, and released on twelve days later on 16 April 2021, in honor of Damian Master’s birthday. Just an Aries acting up, I guess. The only way to get the gift you want is to give it to yourself.

Included here is a slightly re-tooled version of a Sisters of Mercy cover, also recorded in a single afternoon session in 2020 for an interview with a Russian webzine.
