lyrics

Changeling daughter
Screaming at the paintings she made
Throws a cloth over her head
Invisible now...
She cannot see me
Tight as teeth her eyes are clenched
A tangled brackish thatch
Begins its spread
Reluctant enemies are we
On either side of a silence
Heavier than lead

You say I cannot
So I will
Indeed I think I must
Speak the words from my heart
But can I regain your trust?
You are not listening!
Rewinding through your pain

Sri Lanka 8850
Which way the train?
Which way the train?

The trees in their vast windy sorrow
Are shouting
In whispers
They are trying to tell us something
Hush!
Halt your fast speech
You are not listening!
I am trying to tell you something

You say I cannot
So I will
Indeed I think I must
Speak the words from my heart
But can I regain your trust?
I've wished that I was dead
And on the tracks I've lain

Sri Lanka 8850
Which way the train?
Which way the train?

Lost in the foreign land of you
On every side a fence
You're trying to get through to me
I'm trying to hear your sense
What language do you speak?
What truth do you contain?
Are you coming?
Are you going?
Have we anything to gain?

You say I cannot
So I will
Indeed I think I must
Speak the words from my heart
But can I regain your trust?
You are not listening!
Rewinding through your pain

Sri Lanka 8850
Which way the train?
Which way the train?
Which way the train?

I am waiting I am waiting
Ear against the ground

I am waiting I am waiting
Ear against the ground
Which way the train?

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
