"Holy Dances" as written by and Alex Kristian Scally Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand....
In the night I called your
Name heart of mine
One letter at a time
I'll be found in a
Land of savages
Ah-h

Maybe you
Don't know what you've got
Spent yer money on
Desert lots
Holy dances and acronyms
For her

Bury your maps, they'll find
All you pots and pans
Cross all your hands, one
Finger at a time
You'll be found in a
Land of savages ah-h

Maybe you don't know what
You've got
Husk to hide and I know you're
Not, spending money
On a desert rose
Holy dances and acronyms
For bones

    General CommentHer voice is so ghostly, so full of longing, in this song, especially the opening lines. It gives my heart a case of the haunted butterflies, if you know what I mean.

    I think that would be "spent your money on"

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I feel like this song partially maps onto the film Paris, Texas. The protagonist, Travis, spends his money on a desert lot. He doesn't remember why he bought it, but he carries a polaroid of it and is trying to find it as the film opens, wandering mutely through the desert. He associates it with his past life and ex-wife, both of which he is obliquely trying to return to via bleak stretches of land, to a parcel of land that is itself vacant.
