Sisters of the wayside biding time in quiet peace
Await their place within the ring of calm, ah-ah
Still stand to turn in seconds of release
Await the call they know may never come
In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon
To jeopardize the course, upset the run, ah-ah
And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun
As love in the halls of plenty overrun

Ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah, ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah

Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast
Unending dances shadowed on the day, ah-ah
Within their walls, their daunting formless keep
Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay
Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep
Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray, ah-ah
And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed
But no one seemed to question in anyway

Ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah, ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah

How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land
To seek the unsuspecting and the weak, ah-ah
And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand
Toward the foe that threatened from the deep
Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand
Adrift upon a sea of futile speech, ah-ah
And to fall to fate and make the status plan
And th' lord there in heaven would never preach

I'm singin', ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah, ah-ahh, ah-ahh-ah-ah
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh

Where was your word, where was your gooooooooal
Where was your helping, where was your bow, boooooooow
Dulled is the armor, cold is the daaaaaay
Hard was the journey, dark was the waaaay, waaaaaaay
I heard the word, I couldn't stay, ohhh-hoh
I couldn't stand it another day, another day-ay-ay
Another day, another day

Touched by the timely coming, roused from the keeper's sleep
Release the grip, throw down the key
Held now within the knowing, rest now within the beat
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed

They had to stay

Held now within the knowing, rest now within the beat
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed
Oh, take of the fruit, but guard the seed
