Petals of Ruin makes a Slight Return, Jimi Hendrix-style. The original album opener haunts you again as “Petals of Ruin (Reprise)”, closing the album in a déjà vu of whirling tamboura drones which feature psychedelic guitar outtakes by the legendary Richard Lloyd of proto-punk NYC 70's band "Television." Also featuring Jeff Calder on the Electric Sitar and Saarang.



Petals of Ruin blow slowly away
Patterns they blew in, what could they say?

I'm not saying that you'll never fear
I'm not saying I'll never be near
I'm not saying that you're not afraid
I'm not saying that it's too late

Petals of Ruin blow slowly away
Patterns they blew in, well what could they say?

Petals of Ruin, how softly they fall
Petals of Ruin- nothing at all

You're nothing at all
