In Ohtori Academy

The Utena Movie, while having very little to do with plot the TV series, is extremely beautiful and I’ve liked the song In God’s Country for a long time.

One day it just clicked that this song would work well with a lot of those incredible scenes. So for me, this is what I watch instead of re-watching the movie, because I much prefer the story told in the Utena TV series.

Thanks to Patryn for the DVD source.

LYRICS:

Desert sky
Dream beneath the desert sky
The rivers run, but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug in God’s country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses in God’s country

Set me alight
We’ll punch a hole right through the night
Everyday the dreamers die
To see what’s on the other side
She is liberty
And she comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity
The greatest gift is gold

Sleep comes like a drug in God’s country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses in God’s country

Naked flame
She stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love
