voyage of bran lyrics – brendan perry

father, father
can you tell me
where the hours go
where time flows?

it is written in the stars
upon the milky way
we must burn bright
before we fade away

mother, mother
can you tell me
where the fire goes
when the flames cease?

from the ashes, to the astral plain
where the setting sun meets the sea

i live by the river
where the old gods still dream
of inner communion
with the open sea

through the eye of the hunter
in search of a prey
neither beast nor human
in my philosophy

if you don’t recognise me
well it’s simply because
i’ve outgrown these old clothes
time to move on

for you and i will outlive
the masks life gave us
when this shadowplay comes
to a close
