Shine, all Your light around me.
Breathe on the lake.
Here, summit forests shade me,
Dweller of the caves.

Terrorist of the city,
I walked alone.
A fear to the reapers,
Of the seeds that had been sown.

Stalked by man and beast,
And soon by winter's wrath,
I roam when I hear footsteps,
Creep along my path.

I am the prey of Nantahala Lake.
I am the prey of Nantahala Lake.

Stars, by the billions gleaming.
Heaven lights my way.
Trials, of survival training, versus
Agents and Beret.

In this wilderness of plenty,
I'm a thief in the night.
Filled with the thrill of fear,
Will I flee or fight?

Combing through a sea of trees,
Am I near or far?
With scent and sight, they cannot find me,
'Cause I know where they are.

With a thousand eyes,
They search in vain.

For the prey of Nantahala Lake.
I am the prey of Nantahala Lake.
I am the prey of Nantahala Lake.

In the land, of the midday sunrise,
The "Trail of Tears" will turn,
When, they grow tired of waiting,
I will return.

Terrorist of the city,
Though I'll stalk alone,
A brother's hand falls to prove,
The believer's camp has grown.

Legend says they'll realize,
When they fall upon the stone.
When the innocent are forced to pay,
Generations are never known
