Holding arms out to the sky
He offers up his choice to die
Birds of prey descend in faith
Lift him up in saving grace

To lose your only love
To speak without a tongue
To move in ghostly pace
On hunt you follow chase
To seek what you believe
Lies out beyond the seas

Oh heavenly soul who lives beyond our waking eyes
Does she hear the thousand voices as we cry?

Followed valiantly from birth
Dug our heels into the dirt
Carried love in broken hands
Bending backs for bricks in sand

The promise of the dawn
For peace to carry on
Is shattered in the night
With the fire of divine right
To seek what we believe
Lies beyond what we perceive

Oh heavenly soul who lives beyond our waking eyes
Does she hear the thousand voices as we cry?
Oh Mother, may we have the choice to live again?
To right the wrongs we’ve done as mortal men

Oh Mother, Oh Mother
Give us love before we die
Because you know how hard we’ve tried
Given all our souls can give
Show us light while we live
