Over the Georgian

lyrics

(44.7723°N, 79.9373°W)

When the angry hand threw a fist of land
When the wanted woman forsook him
The great tomb north of Penetanguishene
His fingers washed away in the harbors

Lay him down

“Raise the lamps around me
And let them dance
Around, ‘round, ‘round, ‘round
The nameless brides are swaying
To them I’ll call”

Sentinel Kitchikewana
Steely watcher over the Georgian
His angry hands shake in the sunset
Clothes his loneliness in his ire

Lay him down

“Raise the lamps around me
And let them dance
Around, ‘round, ‘round, ‘round
The nameless brides are swaying”
And then she comes

And he bends on big knee
And tells her of his plans
But she says that that won’t do
She can’t love two

“I’ll raze the lamps around me
And quake the land
With sound, sound, sound, sound
I’ll fling your heart, so earthen
I’ll make you crawl
I’ll bend my life to breaking
And lay my body
Down, down, down, down
This bay, my bride, my prison,
My sandy crown”
