Thrown in sown in To the timeline A skyline, this soil, this story Your eagles wings And my dappled things From above and from below All histories converge, they merge From a common past Fast on to the future Sutured lives together Whether or not they know it. Shouting sprouting From the same ground, so it Sounds like a single chorus For us sung a thousand times Rhymes and rhythms Hidden and revealed Sealed seven times the scroll Holy and profane for glory There is truly just one Story.
