    4. The Sage

      I carry the dust of a journey
      that cannot be shaken away
      It lives deep within me
      for I breathed it every day

      You and I are yesterday's answers the earth of the past come to flesh
      Eroded by time's rivers
      to the shapes we now possess

      Come share of my breath and my substance
      and mingle our streams and our times
      In bright infinite moments
      our reasons are lost in our eyes

    10. The Great Gates Of Kiev

      Come forth, from love's spire
      Born in life's fire,
      Born in life's fire.
      Come forth, from love's spire
      In the burning, all are [of our] yearning,
      for life to be.
      And in pain there will [must] be gain,
      New Life!

      Stirring in, salty streams
      And dark hidden seams
      Where the fossil sun gleams.

      They were, sent from [to] the gates
      Ride the tides of fate
      Ride the tides of fate.
      They were, sent from [to] the gates,
      In the burning all are [of our] yearning,
      For life to be.
