lyrics

From the midst of the winter
I will lead you to spring --
Every home needs an altar;
every year fills a hole with the dead.
(how the once fallow field
may divinely exchange sweat for bread -- )

 | Out among the rocks and snakes
 | I'm laying down:
 | "It's more fun to live with trouble
 | than without ..."

On a long narrow road
we will play hide and seek with the moon --
Perfect seeds buried deep
though the surface be still as the tomb.
(all await being born
an ordeal that can come none too soon -- )

From the mouth of our cave
I will show you a bird blocks the sun --
If they spoke we would tremble
but they teach not in language alone.
(how the uncharted world
is a word once inscribed on a stone -- )

 | Out among the rocks and snakes
 | I'm laying down:
 | While castles fall and kings are toppled
 | all around ...
 | You can see that awful cloud
 | that forms ahead:
 | But inside the hearth is dry
 | and warm the bed ...
