Dreamcatcher

Chandra's coriander (Gillan, Morris)

The ripples in the river        
   giving way to waterfalls
The canopies of the forest
   where the ghosts of 
     long forgotten gods
Lie at peace with simple things
And the parts of us that whisper
and say hey 
   this is a moonlight trip

It's an old abandoned route
And the dust of centuries
   obscures the many signs
It is beyond the wit of man
To farm the sea
   as he farms the land

Chandra,  Chandra
Chandra's coriander
Chandra,  Chandra
it's been a long time
   since anybody walked this way

The mother of a genius
   gets to know the golden rule
A generation passes
   and her daughter gives birth to a fool
Tomorrow's child
   a primitive soul
The ancient spirits whisper
   and say
     hey this is a moonlight ride

From the ruins and the filth
The arrogance and pride
   the phoenix will rise
Witness to the path he chose
She walks with eyes 
   forever closed

Chandra,  Chandra
Chandra's coriander
Chandra,  Chandra
It's been a long time
   since anybody walked this way
