ancient ice

All In

All In

 

If on the eve of murder be

Of star struck fairies brazenly

Justifying idols arms outstretched

With heat enough to kill

 

All in all in

 I've prepared a feast

Of honey and morning dew

Come rest your bones

 Your weary mind

 Find comfort here won't you

 Well won't you please come near to me

Touch my shoulder firm

 I've many things to teach you

There's so much for us to learn

 

If in your travels you should find

 Beauty without measure

 It's just a hand to help you see

 Where is the real treasure

For it is not here that you will find

 Such mysteries revealed

You must look beyond thus pale

For these things have been sealed

So soft the touch of golden skin

So lovely perfumes rise

As if to offer sacrifice

With one look into those eyes

Thus river flows from purest streams

 It's fed by ancient ice

Where Edens garden cools beneath

Where the winds always ask twice

 

 So should you dabble

So should you seer

 Into forbidden realms

The sacrifice is great and filled with sin

 You're no longer at the helm

 

 You've got your shield

 I hope you’ve got your rod and staff

 And maybe on your harp you play

Something to get you back

To the land plenty

To desolate streets and field

To barren posts of past wars

Where many a soul did yield

 

Put up a fight, put up a fight

Use your sword and spear

Deftly swing your battle axe

Hold on your end is near

Tis beauty that you fight against

And truth you're fighting for

With beautiful feet your wearing

As you run into the war

With spear held high

The lightning strikes

The ground is split in two

The tablets of the law fall in

Right on top of you

Get up, climb out

Dust off your ancient bow

Count up all your arrows

You've still a ways to go

The Lord of heaven and earth is calling

And his aim is always true

 Raise up your hands, bow your head

He's calling after you
