lyrics

BRIGHT MOON, THE FACE IN THE NIGHT
DOZENS OF HANDS ARE POINTING TO THE SKY

MANTLE OF STARS IS COMING DOWN
DRAGGED BY WHISPERS, THE NIGHT COMES OVER US
WILD SPIRITS, THE STRENGTH OF NATURE
OLD RITUALS AROUND A MYSTICAL BONFIRE

SHUFFLING THE BONES MIXED WITH THE SOIL
THE EYES ARE GOING BLIND

HOWL, THE VOICE OF THE JACKAL, THE WINDS ARE RISING
A VISION IS COMMING NOW

WE ARE THE CLAN OF THE DEER.
BAREFOOT, WE TRACK OUR PREY

BEATS, THE HEARTS OF THE BRAVES, THE EAGLE STARING AT US
WE SHOUT OUR TUNE TO IT
THE RED BACKS ARE TANNED, ANOINTED WITH LIGHT
THE PEOPLE OF THE HORSE PLAINS
SMELL IT; THE HEADY PERFUME, THE MOSS ON THE FEET
OUR HOME, THE ANCESTORS WATCH OVER IT

CROWDED BY THE FIRE
NOW I'M DREAMING
IN A KIND OF TRANCE

OWLS EYES IN THE WILLOWS
THE SHAMAN AND THE LINK THAT STARTS

HERE I FEEL LIKE THE OLDEST TREE
A BURNING SAP FLOWS
AND I SPREAD MY ROOTS WHERE MY FOREFATHERS LIE
