Immortal Wanderer

lyrics

Disembodied in time
You lit a torch in the void
A crow singing in rhyme
To the tune of the hopeless devoid

Suddenly, the moon!
Like a vision appeared
And like Our Lady Of Sorrows
The children wept and she disappeared

Fallen cherubim
Under the sun
Leaves turn in the autumn
Decaying golden

Mercury the Trickster has got you on the run
Quicksilver!
You'll have to keep moving
To keep from
Falling down
Falling down

Immortal wanderer
You're not going anywhere
Immortal wanderer
Your stench is everywhere

Plum petals are falling
You never paid any mind
And there's a fire burning
Behind your petrified eye

Drunk under the moon
A solitary reflection
Surrender to the tune
Like a tear lost in the ocean

Bare trees in the garden
The orchard is barren
Dead leaves keep on falling
And then there was none

Let it blow right through you
Let it come down hard
Let it fall on to you
A changing of the guards

Immortal wanderer
You're not going anywhere
Immortal wanderer
Your stench is everywhere

The promise of an eternal sleep
Broken when I woke from a dream
Discovering the shadow was mine
When I lifted up a cup of wine
With the moon and the shadow, we make three
I can use these two for my company
Endlessly
