lyrics

I saw it in the moonlight, bleeding
I heard it in the wind there, screaming
Whispering like a demon to me now.
I saw it in the eyes of the People
Creeping in like a rising fever...
Gonna tell you 'bout the ways of Evil now.
Someday you're gonna know,
You're gonna know, somehow,

When there's a curse upon your home
A hail of black stone
Slow flame 'round the open spaces
High water in the low places.

I felt it in the chill of the breeze
I heard it in the rustling leaves:
The hard thieves of the sweet and simple way.
In a dream on a peaceful evening...
Falling stars in the gentle season...
Ain't no reason to say no more,
Ain't no reason to say,
'Cause someday you're gonna know,
You're gonna know someday.

Help me now
Help me now, brother
There's a cold wind blowing 'round...
Help me now
Help me me now, brother
There's a cold wind blowing
And we can't light nothing,
It keeps putting our flames right out.

One day we're gonna rise in a dream
And set out along the path of the evening
To dance the Dance
And breath the Breath,
Gonna open the door.
And all the souls gone lost in the wind
Gonna come to walk the earth again
Free from the law of wicked men
Forevermore.
