The Dream Before by Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson

The Dream Before ~ 


She said, What is history?

And he said, History is an angel

Being blown


Into the future

He said: History is a pile of debris

And the angel wants to go back and fix things

To repair the things that have been broken

But there is a storm blowing from Paradise

And the storm keeps blowing the angel


Into the future

And this storm, this storm

Is called


Laurie Anderson
