O God of Earth and Altar, bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die
The walls of gold entomb us, the swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us, but take away our pride

Just a babe in a black abyss, no reason for a place like this
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain
An easy way for the blind to go, a clever path for the fools who know
The secret of the hanged man - the smile on his lips

The light of the blind you'll see, the venom that tears my spine
The eyes of the Nile are opening you'll see

She came to me with a serpent's kiss, as the eye of the sun rose on her lips
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry
So we lay in a black embrace, and the seed is sown in a holy place
And I watched and I waited for the dawn



Bind all of us together, ablaze with hope and free
No storm or heavy weather will rock the boat you'll see
The time has come to close your eyes and still the wind and rain
For the one who will be king is the Watcher in the Ring

It is you, it is you
