Soundtrack Through The Arcana - The Tower

Wow it's been awhile since I've done one of these! I haven't given up on the series, I've just not put any real pressure on myself to do it at any set pace. This is a "when I feel like it" sorta thing! So here I am, feeling like jumping into the 17th installment of this series; The Tower.

I've picked what I guess might be one of my favourite Sinead O'Connor songs to represent the energy of this card. I've done that because the tower is both strong, but in its fall proves also rather fragile and I suppose that's the feeling that I get when I listen to this track. And, while I think this song is more about the fall out of a love affair rather than the overhaul of institution, the themes remain the same. It's destruction vs. rebirth and overlap and inevitable reckoning of the two.

Tell me when did the light die
You will rise
You’ll return
The phoenix from the flame
You will learn
You will rise
You’ll return
Being what you are
There is no other Troy
For you to burn
Oh, I love you
God, I love you
I’d kill a dragon for you
I’ll die
But I will rise
And I will return
The Phoenix from the flame
I have learned
I will rise
And you’ll see me return
Ah but I know you wanted me to be there oh oh
Every look that you threw told me so
But you should’ve left the light on
You should’ve left the light on
And the flames burned away
But you’re still spitting fire
Make no difference what you say
