Down to the River

Mist off the surface of the river is a cloak
Over the backs of we who walk among the trees
Joy is our song this day of glory
Light and darkness dance together as one
The world beyond looks to this place and does not know it
Soon to feel tremors of wrought iron madness
As bullets from the mouth of mercy
Come and see the joy we’ve known
Follow the shadows that call through the trees
Voices from the world kept hidden within our hearts
Telling truths unknowable to minds who do not know the forest
Down this path forged from blood and sacrifice
Come with us to the end
And look into the eyes of the sacrificial lamb
