Born with the moonlight he ran To find something sacred to hold But all he found was the wind Blowing through the fields of gold Oceans they rise And then they fall Like love will come Then leave us all He chased the sacred just to find the sin He looked outside for what was deep within He felt forever but the time was now He made a promise but forgot the vow And that is how to lose What heaven would allow The ancient church lay in ruin But the steps still took him higher From the back of that cathedral He swore he could hear the choir Born with the moonlight he ran To find something sacred to hold But all he found was the wind Blowing through those halls of gold Oceans they rise And then they fall Like love will come Then leave us all He chased the sacred just to find the sin He looked outside for what was deep within He felt forever but the time was now He made a promise but forgot the vow And that is how to lose What heaven would allow

It is said that the fairest of maidens lives there in the wood And that a man with the purest of hearts can find her if he could So one day he put on his leathers This man named after the sun Surya rode out with his charioteer Aruna To seek a place for seeds to be sown Thus began the poem for a blade Seven dark horses steamed in the predawn When Aruna lifted the reins With a snap of the leather the chariot of gold Did break its earthbound chains Thus Surya did rise And lit up the skies Calling out for the maiden of the wood Thus began the poem for a blade For many an hour they soared o'er the forest As Surya did call from the skies And the longer they flew the more did Surya Begin to wish for her thighs Tho only imagined She must be a beauty This goddess below in the wood Thus began the poem for a blade As the moon broke the horizon the chariot did falter And Aruna fought with the steeds Down from the heavens, the chariot overturned Surya in golden livery doth concede And falling he did find A clarity of mind And saw a maiden by the light of the moon And there pointed skyward Awaiting his fall In her hand was the Sword of the Night Thus does end the poem for a blade Thus does end the poem for a blade
