lyrics

Eidolons oh Eidolons
Eidolons oh Eidolons

Oh the Earth, these words, these bones
Oh my poems, oh Eidolons

You set our from Paumanok
To dance along the way
Crawling all over the god you named
The Eidolon of every day

What you found there in woolen gowns
You called a grander name
Rejoice in the wild and wanton ways
America in growing pains

Peel the Earth's old skin aside
Search beneath the ground
Tell the hope to the mournful ears
Not a creed, not a void, not a desert,
But a song that you found

Eidolons, oh Eidolons (x2)
