Lyrics

i saw the sparrow
from the sky
unto the earth he fell
and father time
just walked on by
the promise not to tell
and my time is here
the master cried
but my cup is empty now
to the shoeless gypsy
whose cup is overflowing

and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you on your own
take my hand
you shall not be alone

i saw the prisoner
chained with hate
unto the gallows bound
and all of us
we walked on by
and uttered not a sound
and the earth received him perfectly
her arms wrapped all around
and now we live by night
and curse the darkness

and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you on your own
take my hand
for i can feel the wounds

i saw the youth
with eyes on fire
by desire he was claimed
and righteousness
his mighty steed
carried him through the flames
and the pilgrim he abandoned
but did not lose his way
who is wise now
and who has just been blinded







and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you here to drown
take my hand
you shall not be alone

i saw the armies gathering
underneath the sun
and the trumpet blew
and the banners flew
around the chosen ones
and they all vanished in the fog
and this is what i learned
i contemplate my fate
until its time to take my turn

and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you on your own
take my hand
you shall not be alone

i saw a woman
who could not speak
who could not hear her name
you call me what you want to take
and leave me in my shame
and a man who wandered constantly
looking for the key
to unlock the door to anywhere
that men are truly free...
and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you on your own
take my hand
you shall not be alone

and sing ye praises
mark your souls
turn your ship around
your gods have all forsaken you
and left you on your own
take my hand
we shall not be alone
