lyrics

“Grandmother Tongue”

Your first Pacific flight
Will be your last.
Kiss your motherland goodbye
You’ll never be back.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may love your in-laws
But even they tell you to “Desert!”

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a world where
You don’t understand anyone.

Your children forgive your old ways
As they professionalize
Grandchildren follow your ways
As you shamanize.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may still love him
But he will never come again.

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a land where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.


Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a world where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.

Your first Pacific flight
Will be your last.
Kiss your motherland goodbye
You’ll never be back.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may love your in-laws
But even they tell you to “Desert!”

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution
Grandmother tongue
In a land where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.
