Dead Can Dance - Rakim Lyrics

Favoured son
Turn in the garden
Shades of one
Sins forgotten

Favoured signs to find hope
In the rounds of life
Favoured rhymes to find hope
In the sands of life

Favoured son
Fence in your heart
Savored son
Sins forgotten

  7. Salacious Crumb

    beautiful and haunting at the same time.

  8. -arc-

    this is so rainbow rhythms !

  9. 19lance20

    Most of their songs are healing rituals, the rest are related to cycles of human experience in relation to sacred geometry in every aspect which of course brings out the most humbling of comments from some really nice people :)

    Fascinating fur traps from scouts I've seen around. They have an interesting rhetorical spring.  They're probably skilled at both signs and untrailed wilderness and barely drunkards.  It's probably an offset trap.  You would lift the trap-arm, swing it over the spring, and set it down carefully behind the jaws. I think they camp about 3 miles NE of here...

  22. Ivan Ivanov


  23. Donna Rawlins French

    I was backpacking and staying in New York when this live album was released - I remember going to Tower Records on Broadway and listening to this through the shop headphones. Watching the usual traffic and mayhem through the shop windows was wonderfully contrasted with this fantastic otherworldly soundtrack. I'd expect nothing less from Dead Can Dance! Thank you, Lisa & Brendan! & fans, check out the concert DVD - it's a treat.

  24. Zili Ohneland

    ,like the oriental flow what i cant describe... just feel

  25. Aarond Anton

    Wow so beautiful I know those eyes at the beginning I have seen them in so many kind souls that were begging for help.
    The beauty in the world gets trampled way to often for power praise Glory to gain riches.
    I give all praise thanks Glory power peace love truth and grace to God the Father and Creator in Heaven amen
    I love and only serve and worship God the Father and Creator in Heaven of all things good in the beginning amen, God the Father and Creator in Heaven of all things Good in Earth and in Heaven is the only God before me amen.

    Rakin is a song about a man sung by a man. NOT women

  36. Cunty McCuntface

    VERY nice.

  37. The111Queen

    I can feel myself moving in and out of different dimensions as I listen to this magic created by dead can dance

  38. Eva Matulewski-Carter

    My parents got married to this song. It seriously leaves me awash in shivers and tears every time I listen to it. I don't know how Lisa and Brendan do this.

  39. Ace Alderman

    This is so Rainbow Rhythms

  55. Hobbs LockPickerofThievishBookSmarts

    *Newton, Freemasonry, God, Masks of an Eden and Ozymandias*
    God was the product of wise men in late BC in their early scientific understanding. They called demons also. Jesus was a man who paid for that principle. Religion became an illusion. God is nothing but Monad, the number 1 as discovered in math at the same time as the gods became one god. The Romans took this from the Greeks like Jupiter was Zeus. The Greeks stole from the Egyptians. Pythagoras was known for this. The books were destroyed in Ptolemy but many survived. Metalsmithing and beer are BC products. The math system became Arabic after other symbology at the same period. Jesus was an Essene and mixed with some principles of the period but wasn't really wise to their books if he existed at all. Some say he was created as a form of Dionysus or Bacchus. The Greeks had public arguments which were highly contrived in BC. These were the philosophers like Aristotle and Plato and Socrates. Saxons were wanderers of the period. It unfolded on their heads, so to speak. The Egyptians were really civil and friendly. They created the first school system. Egyptians like Anaximander and Thales of Militus created the first bound book, the apeiron, which is the first recipe of life and the universe, and the early math system and were seen as gods just like Thoth was Hermes Trismegistus and created alchemy. Cats were given the status of gods in the Egyptian community. This was prevalent in Templars and Freemason of later periods. People gave up money and stuff to join Pythagoras who formed the first math community and believed in minimalism in BC. He was big on medicine, transmigration, and created the musical harmonic system as a medicinal scope to align the senses mathematically. The Jews were classically denied the system but made some contributions anyway like distillation from Mary the Jew. The antidiluvians had a calendar before the Julian system based on the same basic understanding. They migrated from the Tower of Babel near the flood with Abraham and lost the recipe. Eternal life was all the rage but really related to the Philosophers egg of the alchemists which is a highly contrived bit of metal. Archimedes was a physicist around then, sure, and created some of the first physics and the recipe for measuring gold...

  56. Kevin Bennett

    yeah. no shit. allies. I wanted Aryan babies. but no one would listen.fuck them. death is better. too fucking crowded. damned fools; traitors all my life!that's why I am where I am. damned Yanksbloody rebels from the startever paranoid someone would take awaywhat they so unrigteously acquired in the first place....we have always loved Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard that love goddess in the flesh.....amor vincit Omnia and cacoe thes our hearts and minds there is only LOVEand in our minds.....BEAUTYEVERYWHERE

  57. Ronja Rose

    Ist ja mal mega gut 🌹

  58. Jan ZA

    I recommend listen to the group Vas, they influenced DCD music. Their arab instruments and singing were influence to them . Azam Ali is also a great singer.

  59. Dudley Beach

    What language is lisa Gerrard chanting in the song Cantara

    Stuart Ravey

    Apparently she makes her own language and lyrics.. If it sounds good she sings it I've heard!

  60. Darryl Hetherington

    powerful montage of images fused with DCD unique...congratulations

  61. Jesus Mind

    After spinning in my own faith in my own solitude I rediscovered and try again to hold my head above the water of this sandy plane and so this is my daily reminder...this music...this song...lest I forget.

  62. gbronzich

    Marvellous group! I have always loved them, and I agree with the comment below that Brendan Perry is a genius.

  63. Alex Blok

    Thank you Mist for introducing me to DCD, one of my top 5 'bands' of all time. Pink Floyd being in a fight for No.1 with DCD and Jean Michel Jarre. This track is just so powerful. It is what quality headphones and decent separates HiFi component systems were made for. No puny speaker dock or sound bar can capture the fidelity and dynamic range of this masterpiece in human achievement. Damn, that was good.

  64. roccoco666

    a što ove ilustracije za njihove pesme mora da budu ovoliko jadne?

  65. GoodVibesOfficial

    ♪♫♥ ;)

  66. Josecorrea Photo

    man, i remember the first thing i heard from DCD was this song, it came on a VHS release of the album (oldie huh?) in the early 2000s since then i love them

  67. C w C Lites

    Desires attained in the garden of eternal bliss, with your bird of plumage

  68. Isobael Liu

    The opening notes of this song ALWAYS give me the chills, even after all these years.

    Favored son, turn in the garden
    shades of one, since forgotten
    Favored signs to find hope, in the rounds of life
    Favored rhymes to find hope, in the sands of life
    Favored son, fence in your heart
    Savored son, sins forgotten

    so touching. it sings to me of being forgotten yet hoping to be found. Feels like a song from our original home calling out in the night to us that we are not forgotten - Hope & Love, Colin.

    One of the greatest and most memorable moments of my life was seeing Dead Can Dance live in 2012. I was transfixed for nearly 3 magnificent hours and to this day I still think about that experience

  92. tracylynnw

    I used to have this cassette, wore it out.

  93. Gretchen

    Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, and Cocteau Twins are not just 3 amazing 3AD musical groups. They are Game Changers, They are Spiritual Movements. I started listening to them in my late teens when some really amazing things were happening to me. I often listened to them when I'd take psychedelics where things happened that I can't even describe. Dead Can Dance, especially, for me, marks experiences of self realization,bonding with ancestral ghosts, a deep-psychic neuro- muscle memory, a spiritual overhaul.

    Eddie Vedder voice on it makes me cry


    Umm not Eddie, but Brenden....
