about

From our 4th CD Alabaster, produced with Brett Taylor at Pilgrim Arts, released on the fairy-world label Prikosnovenie, France, 2002.

This song alludes to the waterways we love in Australia, including Moondarra (pictured here) and Blue Stone Lake, where water shines with translucent light.

lyrics

You have traded places with the water
You have traded places with the air
You have carried sorrow to the fire!
Watched it turn to ashes in the rain…

Drift through fields of your sand
to where birds sing of their troubles -
And the burdens of the denizens
of cities washed in green flame,
step onto the rainbow and fly!
to where an ancient ship waits moored to your pain:
 
Time will drift inside you... Turn your dream to grey
Love will take you over... Lay you like a bay
Stone Lake! (shimmering to fade!) Stone Lake!
 
The anchor flung at last on board, his eyes ablaze with love
for your lost soul hidden in your hair…
You’re the one! You’re the one we’ve been looking for!
Without your mind the prism couldn’t find its lost design -
Why do you hide? Why?
When you stumble you look inside, over regions of the sky!
