"Sisters Of Avalon" as written by Jan Pulsford and Cyndi Lauper....
Felt someone calling me into the howling of the wind.
I heard the reflection of a sound echoing through my skin ...
And a distant drum rumbling under ground gently guides me on ...
Through my wild heart ...
Whispering to me the Sisters Of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon...Sisters Of Avalon...

She is awakening in dark swells and mystery.
Unbridled night mares powerful and running free.
You could still hear her cries reverberating through the trees...
For the trampled flowers, the daughters of Eve, the Sisters of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon...Sisters Of Avalon...

They brought her in in a new white dress...
But the stain left an ache on her mother's breast...
Now all that's left are the ghostly steps from a distant corridor...

And a distant drum rumbling under ground gently guides me on ...
Through my wild heart ...
Whispering to me the Sisters Of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon...
Come on sisters...come on sister...

    General CommentI interpreted this song as to be about the power of sisterhood and how women need to stick up for each other; in this case, a girl is experiencing FGM (female genital mutilation), commonly just called female 'circumcision', which is illegal in the U.S. but not in African and Asian countries. The narrator 'hears' the girl's cries 'in the howling wind'. She barely hears it because the victims of FGM are rarely heard, as are female victims of other crimes, as everyone in the first world countries that could do something about wretched practices is too busy with their own life. The girl is in agony, is having nightmares, and is unsure of her future. Meanwhile her family celebrates it as a ritual, as if the mutilation was great. Cyndi says that when she was writing the song she was learning about a story of a girl who was about to be mutilated and her family was celebrating it, so that was her inspiration for much of the lyrics.
