there is a hill today where gravestones once gathered

shouting out names to blameless Gods

where gravestones gathered in whispered songs

when winds were silent and listened close


Beneath that hill that cradles ghosts

only bones can tell the truth

in the beginning was the word

in the end was the grave


let your prayers take flight and land where they will

I am alone at rest on that hill

blame not the Gods who ne'r gave you breath

It was a man promised you there was life after death


there is a hill today where gravestones once gathered

then gathered their words and all went away

I have rested a moment and while I there lay

the bones just below me wanted to say


let your prayers take flight and land where they will

for we are here still beneath this dank hill

blame not the Gods who ne'r gave you breath

It was a man promised you there was life after death
