Let My People Go
by Diamanda Galás

The devil has designed my death
And is waiting to be sure
Plenty of his black sheep died
Before he finds a cure

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

The firm hand
Of the devil now
Is rocking me to sleep
I force my blind eyes open Lord
But I'm sinking in the day

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

I go to sleep each evening now
Dreaming of the grave
I see the friends I used to know
Crawling up my leg

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Here's the news from the fires below
The eight legs of the devil will not
Let my people go

She was a friend in college in the 1970s. She's the real deal and a courageous artist.

Peace Hunter

My cat was scared of her and hid whenever I put it on. I considered it a high compliment to her.

The way she channeled the pain and anger of her brother dying of AIDS and watching our government and the CDC do nothing is breathtaking and heart-wrenching.

Елизавета Вильямсон

Is that really song "let my people go"?
It's grotesque, but wonderful.

Carlos Cámara

No, the original Is the versión of Paul robeson

Michelle Nocon

She's dark as hell but brilliant in my opinion!

Memory Child

Stunning! Powerful and intense, true Music.

I have only just heard of her. I can't say she's like anything I have ever seen or heard. Singular talent.

Ineffable Oracular

Don't mean to brag but, I saw her do this live on tour years ago when she released The Singer, I also saw her tour with John Paul Jones from their album The Sporting Life. Saw an additional 2 solo tours. I can only hope she plays North America again someday. She's an exceptional artist and woman, truly an original
