Embrace the wind with both arms
Stop the clouds dead in sky
Hang your head no more
And beg no more
Brother Wolf and Sister Moon
Your Time has come

Brother Wolf and Sister Moon
Your time has come
And the wind will blow my fears away
And dry my tears away
And the wind will will blow my fears away
And dry my tears away

    General CommentMy favourite Cult song from the LOVE album.... perhaps more Mission than Sisters, but great guitar riff. Page would be proud.
    Let the gods and nature blow away your demons.

    General CommentI think this song is about the genocide of the native peoples of the Americas. Very deep, very moving and it's rare if I don't cry when I sing this song.

    TranslationWhat a beautiful song. A song of peace of mind tied into the greatness of "Mother Nature". Think of thunder during a snow storm and you will be in awe. Very spiritual and profound. The "Ides of March" of Minnesota.

    General CommentThe "Ides of March" of any great state,country, or region. This song relates to all positive, beatiful, human beings. A song of greater good and happiness.

    General CommentIt is about the genocide of Native Americans that took place in the 19th century. According to the Hindu belief about death Astbury says that they need not be afraid, because they will be the air, the nature, and the countryside will sweep away their fears. He uses the moon as a transcendental object to express death and Hindu mysticism about it, and it is a play on words because, together, the wolf and the moon are complete (brother and sister). Duffy's magnificent soil seems to represent the transition to the spirit world, and the psychedelic rain shows that the transition is over, and now they are the rain that falls to wash their bodies. One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
