THE BURIED MOON

Once upon a midnight time
Once upon a midnight time
Moon Goddess come
Moon Goddess come
Come silvery
Come silvery
Come silvery down
To the darking sky

But got caught upon a snag
A twisting and a holding snag
A-holding her
A snag of Time
A snag of Lies
Forgotten lies
Forgotten lies

Moon Goddess pull
Moon Goddess pull
Pull away to freedom
Pull away to freedom
Pull away
Pull away

But snag hold her
Hold her in his power
She cannot get away
She cannot get away

Moon Goddess sad
Moon Goddess sad now
Her head low down
Her head low down

But now a human man come
Now a human man come
A good man
But he lost
He lost the way
And crazy

She shine her silvery
She shake her silvery
Shimmer hair shimmer light
She show him shine
She show him ways
She show him ways

He leave her there
He leave her there
Beneath a stone
Beneath a stone
And she moan lady moan
Lady Moon moan
Moan in the dark
In the darking, moan

But now a new time come
Now a new time come
And the good man he no more lost
Afore he remember
He remember
Heremember
Heremember the silver
The silver shine a-lighting
Alighting up the sky

He take the people by the hand
He take the people by the hand
"There is a light," he say
"A shimmering, a silvery
"She set me free
"She set me free
"She set me free!"

And then the womon of the world
Rised up
Rise the daughters of the moon
All all rise up
And make a cry:

"Wise woman know
"Wise womon know moon magic
"She point the way
"She point the way in
" 'Go within' she say
" ' And find the stone
" 'And find the stone...' "

We go all we go
To find the stone
To find the stone

LIFT UP THE STONE AND FREE THE MOON
LIFT UP THE STONE AND FREE THE MOON
LIFT UP THE STONE AND FREE THE MOON

She shine silvery
She shine silvery up
Silvery up
To the darking sky
She silver fly
She silver fly
She silver fly...
