The Dragon’s Song has long been one of The Primatives favorites. The original recording on our “The Lovers of Kali Yuga” cd has a very powerful and primitive “lead” guitar line, played by my son, Jesse Allen Hanson. Currently, Lilasuka has created a flute line that sets a very similar primitive mood, but―at the same time―is entirely original.

The Dragon’s Song
jesse s. hanson

One hundred million years is oh so fleeting
One hundred million years is worth repeating
I’m runnin out of time, can you love me knowing I’m
Like an old and bitter child
But my heart is runnin wild

I’m not weary of their coming and their going
I”m not fearing their clever cunning because I’m knowing
That my dreams are falling through; can i love you when they do
When the walls are giving way
Will my love go on it’s way

Over cheerless seas and silent waters
Great pools of the ages of tears of His dear daughters
Over hoary mountain crags, unreachable
Over the swarming battles of the unteachable
Over the clinging vines that keep the secrets
Over the fields of broken lover’s regrets
My wings so slowly moving with my breathing
My eyes so lowly, sighing to be leaving… leaving

There’s no one left to mind this lonely business
The old ones left to find their own forgiveness
Surrendering my past, can you love me like I asked
Like a free and inner child
Innocent and mild

One hundred million years is oh so fleeting
One hundred million years is worth repeating
I’m runnin out of time, can i love you knowing I’m
Like an old and bitter child
But my heart is runnin wild
