Podcast Episode 31 - Track 9: Bad Seed

This podcast episode is about Rusalka's Umbrella track #9: "Bad Seed." It's the part of the sequence within the CD that gets into innocence vs. deviance. The photograph shown here is a view I found from the top of The Grotto in Portland, OR - which is the grotto I referred to in this song. Listen to the podcast to find out the full meaning of the song and how Mermaids (staring Cher) fits in.

Good news! The book is here! Learn more about the new CD in Daughters of the Dead Sea which is now available at amazon.com. This 100-page paperback book has diary entries, poems, and lyrics/descriptions all relating to Rusalka's Umbrella.

Routier pauvre et chantant
"Are you ready to go?
Just keep yourself strong," I said
To the grotto and stone
the gardens and the thorns of a monastery
And the minute she arrived,
they knew they'd have to bury a bad seed

But she's here, and she tries
But she's here, don't go. Let go.
Don't let go, she could be anywhere
Like a clouded sky, she's almost everywhere
You can't the holy out of the water
And she knew right then she could be anywhere
and here.

Routier pauvre et chantant
And there she concedes
in the gardens and the thorns of a monastery
dirt in her finger nails, dig a little hole for a bad seed
And the minute it was buried,
she knew she'd lost a friend and a sister

She was ready to go
from the grotto and the stone of the monetary
All the life she could taste
from the gardens and the thorns of a bad seed
