Dead Can Dance - Toward the Within - "Rakim"

Favored son 
Turn in the garden 
Shades of one 
Sins forgotten 
Favored signs to find hope 
In the rounds of life 
Favored rhymes to find hope 
In the sands of life 
Favored son 
Fence in your heart 
Saviored son 
Sins forgotten

oward the Within was recorded in one take in November 1993 in the Mayfair Theatre in Santa Monica, California and was released by 4AD as an album and a video a year later. It was the last major event to take place in the Mayfair Theatre before it was fatally weakened in the earthquake a short time later and had to be demolished. The video was filmed by Mark Magidson and contains interviews with Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry.

This is the opening part, including Rakim and two declarations from Gerrard and Perry.
