Sing the Stones

from by Spiral Dance

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.
    Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.
    Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.
    Spiral Dance bids you welcome.

about

This song was first written when we were reeling with the shock of news about the gulf war and talk of weapons of mass destruction; of Governments deciding the fate of others, of the land, the people and the animals; so much greed and the race for global power; so many atrocities worldwide. Mother Nature is suffering and our beautiful planet is fighting for survival. We wondered at the time how we would feel if all that we held sacred was destroyed, the lands and forests that sustain
us decimated, the waters poisoned and our spirits defeated. We wanted to hold Mother Earth in our arms and shelter her and we wanted to protect our sacred sites from destruction by singing them to sleep.

lyrics

There’s darkness moving ‘round us they’ve sown a savage seed
It flies on wings of fury it takes with hands of greed
They’ve come to drain the lifeblood that flows within our lands
They’ve come to track the ley lines where our emblems stand
And they say we must accept their final crushing blow
But the tribes have come together so the answer’s surely no
Their dark minds will not heed us they’ve sealed us with their fate
But it seems that they’ve forgotten there’s a guardian at every gate
So now the time has come to sing the stones to sleep
To camouflage their power and the secrets that they keep
Until a new dawning of our ancient rites
When we will come together to awaken the sacred sites
The stones speak in whispers voices from the mother’s womb
There’s a warning from the night wind of impending doom
You claim peace is not an answer but invasion is a must
So do we watch while you turn Mother Earth into a barren husk
If you face us with extinction we need to know why
And how you make the distinction of who will live
And who will die
You’ll break apart the harmonies and tear away our kin
So we’ll call upon the guardians from above below within
