  • Again tonight I sang a song, a prayer if you will
    Fell to the floor on blackened knees, and all the trees fell still
    Press my hands between my thighs, and poured the thistle milk
    Begged the thunder bolts to strike and mark me as alive

    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    Scented the night

    And so I finished up my prayer, rose slowly and I stared
    But I was empty as a grave and ghost less was the air
    Laid back to bedden my eyes and searched those frivolous skies
    Again begged the thunder bolt to strike to mark me or else I will die

    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    Scented the night

    Any second before I sleep
    Any second before I sleep

    Did I believe what I did see?
    Did I believe what came to me?

    Appeared a figure of a man, waving upon the hill
    To the window I ran and saw what he had sent
    Children of a private world, to beacons conceived in milk
    Hundred marching to my door are bringing dreams to drink

    Thank God I'm alive!
    Thank God I'm alive!


    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    All of the lilies on the hill
    Scented the night
