Dance of the Maenad

Milk from the soil  
coiled like a snake  
on the swaying arms  
of a lady in the fray  
Maenad on display  
in the madness  
in the rain  

In the blood  
I can taste  
in the race  
of my heart  

Dancing with the malice  
of a bitch with murder in her eyes,  
and the wine in her hands-  
 
So she'll dance  
so she'll laugh until  
the life leaves her eyes  
 
A rebel in the revel  
of the drums on the land  
barefoot in the sand  
and naked in the night  
 
Sing 》  
《Cry  
Spin》  
 
Laugh, dream, careen  
then break, scream, release  
tearing flesh from the men  
who put their poison  
in our dreams and their guns  
to our heads and their laws  
in our flesh-

Parasites in our beds
and we'll fight
til' we're dead
