Driven Like The Snow
The Sisters Of Mercy

Still night, nothing for miles
White curtain come down
Kill the lights in the middle of the road
And take a look around
It don't help to be one of the chosen
One of the few, to be sure
When the wheels are spinning around
And the ground is frozen through, and you're
Driven, like the snow
Pure in heart
Driven together
And given away to the west
A white dress
Till the river don't run
A black dress looking like mine
'Til the sun don't shine no more
Where the sky meet the ground
Where the street fold 'round
Where the voice you hold don't make no sound, look
Snow on the river and two by two
Took a lot to live a lot like you
I don't go there now, but I hear they sung
Their "f**k me And marry me young"
Some wild idea and a big white bed, now
You know better than that, I said

Like a voice in the wind blow little crystals down
Like brittle things will break before they turn

Like lipstick on my cigarette
And the ice get harder overhead
Like think it twice but never never learn

And the mist will wrap around us
And the crystal, if you touch it

And the cars lost in the drift are there
And the people that drive lost in the drift are there
And the cares I've lost in the drift are there
Theirs, ours
Lost in the drift are
Driven together
And driven apart

I love this embrace of atmosphere and Bruegelian perspective.

Beautiful. I imagine it is very quiet, and the smell is crisp with a hint of burning wood. But I don't see this as a "solstice" image

Reminiscent of Grandma Moses, updated. Very charming, I like this a lot.
