CELESTINE

CELESTINE
Celestine they make their way
Brothers to the water
To cleanse the crystal in the head
Still in silent laughter

The drop into the forehead
Silver people roam
To lace the time
With story rhyme
And drink the river’s daughter
Drink the river’s daughter

Oh! La la la la…

Pyramids inside the mind
They walk the crystalline
Or trade their scarlet thoughts for talk
All wisdoms from the grail

Tower stands against the sky
People are not there
Stone’s old voice speaks of an age
The brothers hear and reel amazed
The brothers hear and reel amazed

Oh! La la la la…

Wind through stone
Your eyes and ears
The time has come
Wonder begun

Wind through stone
Your eyes and your ears
The time has come
Wonder begun

(They break their fast!)

Now to be
Now to be
Now to be
Now to be
Now to be

La la la la la …
