about

based on the Jungian interpretation of the story of St. George and the Dragon

lyrics

St. George and the Dragon

I want to feel like St. George and the Dragon
More like St. George than the dragon, that’s sure
Can the days’ clothes be my silver coat of armor?
Can the song I sing be my spear?

& If we let ourselves take
All that we are wanting
If we let ourselves wake
From this sleep – now whole

She wants to paint our life
The color of St. George and the Dragon
All that red and green and burnished gold
I want to see my fear walk
In all its brave apparel
I want to see my fear at the end of my sword

& If we let ourselves take
All that we are wanting
If we let ourselves wake
From this sleep – now whole

Waking up to find that you are
What you were waiting on
Waking up to find that you
What you avoided till now
We can be – if we need to be – brave
Enough to face ourselves
We can be – if we need to be
