The Road to Avalon

Back to Album listing


Well what is there to say?
What’s new anyway?
We’ve got to learn to be quiet
To learn how to speak
Now soft, now silently
The throng threads through the trees
While ‘round the pallid breezes play

Tears fill the skyways
Fire fills the guns
Cars line the highway
On the road from Babylon
Bring spice for the season
Beams for the sun
And bread for the pilgrims
On the road to Avalon

Fear fills the purses
Laughter is all dumb
King mutter curses
On the road from Babylon
Bring dew for the wastelands
Wealth for the sun
And wine for the pilgrims
On the road to Avalon

So what is there to lose
You just have to choose
But once you refuse you stay
Then together we’ll walk
In the dream that we sought
Where together we’d talk
With our minds till morning

Tears fill the skyways
Fire fills the guns
Cars line the highways
On the road from Babylon
Bring spice for the season
Beams for the sun
And wine for the pilgrims
On the road to Avalon

Yes bring teeth for the toothless
Speech for the dumb
Love sleeps in dewponds
In the land of Avalon
Waves thrash the ocean
Flares rock the sun
And raw evolution
Tames the walls of Babylon
