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

Great track with some striking similarities to  Kula Shaker's cover of Govinda (another great track). I've never heard of this band, thanks Bill.
Oh YES - everyone settle in!
RP, xoxo
Love this band. Check out live dvd.

A nice coincidence. I was listening to this CD on the drive home last night.

After missing this show in Toronto due to a misunderstanding concerning show times, the band took pity on us and put me and my friends on the guest list for Boston, and we decided to make the trip, just for the hell of it. After the show we ended up hanging out and having beers with Brendan and some French lighting guy at the Cheers Pub in Boston. Good times.

Great concert too, of course. I recall Lisa fainting in the middle of a song. Later that night Brendan told us: "I haven't seen her eat yet on this tour."

How long ago it all seems, yet like yesterday.

My ears think this should be played more often.  I need to get hold of this album for sure.
Wow - forgot how much I loved Dead Can Dance!  Thanks Bill... 

{ I think I have some strange looking old discs that contain this music --- now to find something to play them on.}
I love this song. I just thought to see if there was a video of DCD performing this live. Happy to report, yes. And it blows me away.

According to the video this is them performing this song live in Montreal in 2012.

[edit. I don't think the link is working, though it acts like it will when creating the comment. Easy enough to find yourself, the title of the video was "Dead Can Dance Rakim Live Montreal 2012 HD 1080P"]
