The Course of the Wine
(E.J.Geel)

Living on the dormant hill one can be a sage brush
Or a lost embrace
The woman in the window quickly draws the curtain
At the sight of my face

Davanti al crocefisso sul muro
Mormora “Gesù, ti scongiuro
Chi è questa donna, qual’è il suo credo
E perché è venuta qui?”

Well, won’t you tell her the wine is always flowing
Like time, you can’t change the course of the wine
It’s a line that can’t be broken
It ties our lives together
It ties our joys and miseries together
It ties trust and prejudice together
It ties…the whole world together

Living on the dormant hill one can be a blunt knife
Or a slaughtered bride
The priest in the armored car whizzes by the crime scene
Blending with the long, unfolding night

Stringe la bibbia con le ruvide mani
e prega il Signore, “Mi dia una ragione
Dov’era quando si perse nell’amore
Per garantire la sua protezione?”


Well, won’t you tell him the wine is always flowing
Like time, you can’t change the course of the wine
It’s a line that can’t be broken
It ties our lives together
It ties our joys and miseries together
it ties trust and prejudice together
it ties our daemons and serenities together
it ties our victories and battlefields together
It ties…the whole world together
