Spirits, dancing around him,
Cheering, always inviting.

A land where no one's ever reborn,
Clocks forever at noon,
A place where there is no one to mourn,
And you can't see the moon.

They have waited years for this day,
Chanting for a savior to come,
Now he's here they hope he will stay,
In their timeless kingdom.

They offer him the finest things,
Glasses of a delicate wine,
Clothes made of feathers and wings,
Ev'rything that's Divine.

Spirits, dancing around him,
Cheering, but something's missing.

A land where nothing's ever reborn,
Somewhat doesn't feel right,
A kingdom that's forever at morn,
Isn't fit for a Knight.

They keep on bringing offerings,
Crowns made out of green cypress vines,
Precious stones carved into a ring,
Now they wait for a sign.

He stands up and he looks at the crowd,
Every one holds their breath,
Their spirits are on the highest cloud,
All is quiet as death.

He tells them he will leave for a land,
Where the moon meets the sun,
A place where nothing's ever in hand,
And you feel like you've won.
