orion (and the lion)

lyrics

A long road, an empty road
lead us back into the summer
when we made peace with the natives
and drank what they gave us
and they showed us orion
and the lion
so we made peace with the natives
and drank what they gave us

I learned about humility
at the feet of a famous teacher
he led by example
snuffed out my candle
lest the light keep shining
and blind the lion

so we made peace
for a little while at least
briefly released from all our cares

and we climbed trees
clouds parted like the seas
as the lion breathes the midnight air

It's been a long time tryin'
to find that lion
