about

Inspired by a visit to the "ghost town" of Kayaköy in southwestern Turkey and the book by Louis de Bernières "Birds without Wings" as well as current happenings in the region...

lyrics

Anatolia

Moving through the empty places
Confused by all the open spaces
Climb the hill to reach the chapel
The leaves are scorched within the dapple lighting on the ground

Writing now a book for those to learn
I devise a way to share the only Word
To give them clarity in everything they've heard
With faithless charity they open up and find it all absurd

Whiter than the minaret, paler than the Virgin painted on the wall
Whiter than the minaret, paler than the virgins waiting for your call

Anatolia! Anatolia! Anatolia!

Moving through the open spaces
Confused by all the empty places
Climb the hill to reach the chapel
The leaves are scorched within the dapple lighting on the ground

Tearing up the Book for no one learns
I declare the fear to share that everybody yearns
To take their charity and throw it on the ground
With faithful clarity we hear the fighting in the desert sound

Whiter than the minaret, paler than the Virgin painted on the wall
Warmer than the leatherette, paler than the virgins waiting for your call

Anatolia! Anatolia! Anatolia!
