Gone Again

Hey now man's own kin We commend into the wind Grateful arms grateful limbs Grateful soul he's gone again I have a winter's tale How vagrant hearts relent prevail Sow their seed into the wind Seize the sky and they're gone again Fame is fleeting God is nigh We raise our arms to him on night We shoot our flint into the sun We bless our spoils and we're gone we're gone Hey now man's own kin We commend into the wind Grateful arms grateful limbs Grateful heart he's gone again Here a man man's own kin He turned his back and his own people shot him And he fell on his knees Before the burning plane And he beheld fields of gold his land his sun And he arose his blood aflame The clouds pressed with hand prints stained One last breath The sky is high The hungry earth The empty vein The ashes rain Death's own bed Man's own kin Into the wind One last breath Hole in life Love knot tied Braid undone Child born The hollow horn Warrior cried A warrior died One last breath Lick of flame Spirit moaned Spirit shed The heavens fed Man's own kin Grips the sky And he's gone again Hey now man's own kin We lay down into the wind Grateful arms grateful limbs Grateful heart he's gone again Hey now man's own kin He ascends into the wind Grateful heart grateful limbs Grateful man he's gone again

Wing

I was a wing in heaven blue Soared over the ocean Soared over Spain And I was free Needed nobody It was beautiful It was beautiful I was a pawn Didn't have a move Didn't have nowhere That I could go But I was free I needed nobody It was beautiful It was beautiful And if there's one thing Could do for you You'd be a wing In heaven blue I was a vision In another eye And they saw nothing No future at all Yet I was free I needed nobody It was beautiful It was beautiful And if there's one thing Could do for you You'd be a wing In heaven blue And if there's one thing Could do for you You'd be a wing In heaven blue And if there's one thing Could do for you You'd be a wing In heaven blue



People Have The Power

I was dreaming in my dreaming Of an aspect bright and fair And my sleeping it was broken But my dream it lingered near In the form of shining valleys Where the pure air recognized And my senses newly opened I awakened to the cry That the people have the power To redeem the work of fools Upon the meek, the graces shower It's decreed: the people rule The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power Vengeful aspects became suspect And bending low as if to hear And the armies ceased advancing Because the people had their ear And the shepherds and the soldiers Lay beneath the stars Exchanging visions and laying arms To waste in the dust In the form of shining valleys Where the pure air recognized And my senses newly opened I awakened to the cry The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power Where there were deserts, I saw fountains Like cream the waters rise And we strolled there together With none to laugh or criticize And the leopard and the lamb Lay together truly bound I was hoping in my hoping To recall what I had found I was dreaming in my dreaming God knows a purer view As I surrender to my sleeping I commit my dream to you The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power The people have the power The power to dream, to rule To wrestle the world from fools It's decreed: the people rule It's decreed: the people rule LISTEN! I believe everything we dream Can come to pass through our union We can turn the world around We can turn the earth's revolution We have the power People have the power ...



About A Boy

Toward another He has gone To breathe an air Beyond his own Toward a wisdom Beyond the shelf Toward a dream That dreams itself About a boy Beyond it all About a boy Beyond it all From the forest From the foam From the field That he had Known Toward a river Twice as blessed Toward the inn Of happiness About a boy Beyond it all About a boy Beyond it all From a chaos Raging sweet From the deep And dismal street Toward another Kind of peace Toward the great Emptiness About a boy Beyond it all About a boy Beyond it all I stood among them I stood alone Boy boy Just a boy Just a little boy Just a little boy Who will never grow
